Just managed to trick up one of my old WE Eagle-2 incans by adding the 18650 extension tube and installing the PE3854L. (ok, a long story)

I would love to try out the "53H" and the "54H" in this light. This light has the focusable head on it so would love to give it a shot.

The question is, where can I get these bulbs..... :)

OK, so I now get it.........these have not been made for a good few years now.

Is there a bulb of similar size shape as the ROP high 6-7.2V around 20W-25W that could replace this?

Pelican 3853 is designed to use with 6 NiMH cells at 7.2 volts, 3.3A/1.4A but 3854 was designed to work with lead acid 6 volts, 4A,1.8A. Using pair of Li-ion will power up the 53 nicely and friendly and 3845 severely overdriven.
Not many protected cells can power up 3853H or 3854H with first click. 3853L and 3854L no problem since they are about 11W
they are hard to find but you may check
here.
As far as I know, above bulbs arw the only made in PR base and for flashlight use.
Other option is bi pin bulb such as Philips 5761 with
Bi-pin to PR socket.
