Cute little light, for sure! ..and my goodness, 17grams empty! haha!! The tube actually looks quite... "big" for a 10180 but I guess they are fitting a side switch on this little thing.
I kind of wish they'd make one a little fatter and longer to accommodate RCR123, while keeping the 24mm head. Not that being "useful" is the standard measure, I think I'd enjoy the light more if turbo would last more that a few seconds at a time.
Regardless, it's one cute little thrower! I'd love to see it in red and black!
I was excited to see you post this extension for the Nano, so I quickly ordered one and it came last night. I popped a good 10440 cell in it and turned it on. All was well till I kicked it into turbo. A few seconds after being in turbo the light went very purple. I pulled the body off and the battery was not being popped up via the spring at the tail of the body. Not sure if that was the cause of the issue or not.
Now, when I put the 10180 battery in the output is lower and the overall light is purple with a small tan spot in the middle. Seems like it may have been overdriving the LED somehow... bummer. At least this happened on a fairly cheap light, I guess.
Just a warning to others, but I'm sure it's an anomaly of bad luck for me.
Awe man, I ordered 2 yesterday....arrival tomorrow.
I would be curious to see how they work out for you.
Maybe screw the light together and unscrew it before turning it on to see if the battery gets stuck in the bore of the body. I can't really think of anything else that would have caused the issue and burned up my light. A faulty battery or something... I didn't smell any burning, like they battery was shorted...?
