Odd Mods Battery Adapters



The battery adapters listed below are a marriage of semi-common fasteners with semi-complicated milled and drilled plastic parts and hand-cut copper pieces. The plastics used are primarily acetal and nylon, except where clear plastic is noted or pictured (acrylic). Milling, drilling, cutting, punching, threading, grinding and assembly operations are performed by myself with an assortment of tools in the garage.

CUSTOM ADAPTERS

Pricing starts at $69-$99 for the first unit of most designs. Contact me via email (bottom of post) or PM with your adapter needs for a quote. Ordering multiples has significant price/unit benefits.

Non-Custom Products (stocked):

-------







3x17670 for SureFire M6

3x17670black.jpg




  • Series wired for ~11.1V operating voltage with 3x3.7V cells.
  • All brass contacts for cells and flashlight springs.
  • Alignment rods keep adapter in proper alignment whether cells are installed or not.
  • Easy side-load design, no dis-assembly required for loading; new larger custom thumb nut for quick retaining and loosening of cells.
  • Polarity indicators for each cell slot.

$30.00 Each

Add $3.00 for shipment to USA/Canada for any quantity up to 4 adapters.

Add $6.00 for international shipping of up to 2 adapters, $1.25 for each additional adapter.

Ordering 5 or more? Contact me for large order discounts and availability confirmation.


Instructions and Information (please read!)

Great results with LumensFactory HO-M6R and IMR-M6 bulbs. Use an FM bi-pin socket for use with the popular 1185 and 1331 bulbs (careful about insta-flash!) Various LED tower modules and custom assemblies may also be compatible.

Loading and unloading is easy; adjust the thumb nut on the side with the deeper recess and slide the end caps into position to accept cell length, insert a 17670 cell in each slot orienting the positive end of each cell towards the red recessed indicator "dot," and negative towards the black. Clasping with hand, insure that each cell is seated fully then tighten thumb nut to secure cells in place. If you want an extra strong grip on the cell, a *slight* twist with a pair of pliers on the thumb nut is fine but not necessary.

Insert the adapter into the M6 body with the adjusting-thumb nut facing the tail-cap. Technically speaking, either direction will work, but this will orient for normal polarity and would be important if used with an LED tower or head.

2x18650 For SureFire M6

2x18650black.jpg




  • Series wired for ~7.4V operating voltage with 2x3.7V cells.
  • All brass contacts for cells and flashlight springs.
  • Double support rod design keeps end-caps in alignment at all times.
  • Easy side-load design, no dis-assembly required for loading; use 2 easy to adjust thumb nuts for cell retention and removal.
  • Polarity indicators for each cell slot.

$30.00 Each

Add $3.00 for shipment to USA/Canada for any quantity up to 4 adapters.

Add $6.00 for international shipping of up to 2 adapters, $1.00 for each additional adapter.

Ordering 5 or more? Contact me for large order discounts and availability confirmation.


Information: (please read!)

For use in SureFire M6 model flashlights. Many bulb options are possible with this adapter depending on which cells are used. Examples include: MN15, MN16, MN20, MN21 (with proper cells), HO-M3T, EO-M3T, FM bi-pin adapter with WA1111, 64250, GE787, 64275 (with IMR cells and custom shimming/cutting/grinding), and more! Note: SF HOLA lamps and most bi-pin bulb options are more susceptible to premature failure when driven by 2x18650 cells. Stick to the SF LOLA or LF bulbs to maximize reliability.

--------------------------------

3AA-18AA adapters for mag bodies.
3aa-18aa.jpg




  • Excellent cell retention provided by a combination of flat brass contacts and cell retaining pocket design
  • More refined look and feel and function than previous designs
  • Easy side loading design means cells can be removed for charging without hassle
  • Pack charging is also easy with included alligator jacks/wires (except 3AA)
  • Thicker Delrin end caps and intermediate spacer for better overall rigidity and deeper cell pockets
  • Delrin support rods keep all components in alignment and protect the unit from damage when cells are not loaded
  • Easier tightening/loosening with thumb nut
  • Compatible with any type of AA or 14500 size cell. 14.5mm pocket diameter means even the slightly larger than normal AA size cells will fit. Button top or Flat top works fine since both ends of every cell installed are in contact with their own raised brass contact.


Pricing for Series Wired 3AA, 6AA, 9AA, 12AA, 15AA, and 18AA adapters is listed below. (15AA size is rare and therefor is build-to-order)

"Parallel" Wired (end to end cells in series, side by side in parallel) adapters are available upon request and lead time is generally ~1 week. Pricing is the same as the series wired units listed below.

That pesky fine print stuff... "lawyer talk" [PLEASE READ BEFORE ORDERING]

I'm not a lawyer, so I'll use english instead :)
I sell these adapters with the assumption that the receiving party has an understanding of electronic circuits and the dangers they could potentially present. But for obvious liability reasons, these adapters do not come with any batteries. Beginners in the realm of modifying flashlights should feel free to ask questions in this thread, or in one of the many appropriate places on this forum to build up a proper understanding of the modifications intended before attempting to modify a flashlight with an after-market adapter. Use of these adapters may void warranties of some flashlights. Please take responsibility and understand the risks.


---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Payment Instructions:​

Please make note that you have sent payment and what for in this thread. Please allow up to 1-2 weeks for shipment as inventory fluctuates. I will generally make note of when your order has shipped here in the sales thread. If you have any questions about your order feel free to contact me via email.

Hello Eric,

Did you ever figure out how to make the aa adaptors 4 abreast? would be interested in a 12aa to 3d for a 3d mag.

Hi Dave,

I have done some custom 4-abreast AA adapters for people in the past. I can only make them wired series/parallel. In the case of a 12AA>3D, it would be a 3.6V pack.

Hi jackolantern,

I cut the slots to a dimension that allows the cells to sit pressing against each-other, Whether or not the host will need to be bored is based on the diameter of the specific cells chosen and the inside diameter of the mag host chosen.
