This is an original 6P with an extension.

I'm running a P91 incan and driving it with two 16650 Li-ion batteries.

And if your 6P is bored out and add 69mm

I'll play. Surefire L2 body. Lumens factory E to C adapter ( I think), Fivemega D26 Bipin adapter (one of my all time favorite Surefire Upgrades). Running a WA 1111 bulb.

I was running a pair of 18350s with a spacer to take up the space of the 3rd cell but the batteries died the other day. I really wish I could get a pair of 50mm cells like 14500 or 16500 (f that exists) in there, but the switch sits too deep in the body. Maybe time to make my own switch, I never did care for the twisty anyway.

I decided to go ahead and convert my L2 switch to a clickie. Just basically used an old pcb from a driver along with an otman switch and then threaded a ring to hold it in there. Sadly my factory switch boot shredded so I had to use a stumpy one I had laying around. Surefire doesn't have the boots anymore to replace them with.

Here is my 9P with an extension and two 16650s. I was surprised to see it makes the P90 bulb seem as bright as the P91. The voltage is lower than the 3 cr123 batteries so it's a mystery. Must be all the mAh. I will check it out after dark tonight doing chores.

I sure wish Surefire would make new pieces of things like extentions and offer them for sale to the public. It isn't like they need new tooling or any R&D costs.
True. Though only reason they don't do that is because there wouldn't be enough profit in it for them.

I think part of the problem is folks who don't know what they are doing, Legoing stuff together that goes :poof:and then expecting SureFire to cover the replacement with new. This website, and the advice available to experimenters, it is likely a toss-up whether CPF has saved SF money, or cost them money! :crackup:

P90 should be the same with either cells. And voyage in the same too. Mah is for runtime, it won't affect brightness. P91 would be brighter on 16650, but that's due to higher voltage from the heavy load

I agree. It's much easier to see outside at night instead of on a wall inside the house. The p91 is very nice beaming up on the hills and around the place doing chores. I can see why it was so popular all those years ago.
