Scorpion + extension tube + 2 Pila +TL-3 bulb

Has anyone tried this?
Size of extender can be for use with 2x150S or 2x168S for longer run time.
This idea came up when I first tried to use 2xR123 but run time was too short.
Why Scorpion? Clickie switch. :thumbsup:

Which extender would this be? The UBH?

Did this extender ever come to market? Also, where do I buy PILA cells and chargers? I'm new to them and I'm trying to do a search on where to buy, but I'm coming up empty handed on the forum.

I was also looking an this thread. I have to Scorpions at home and two Stingers, so any mods are welcome.

Thanks,

Rob

Crewcabrob, I don't remember what the thread was called, but Fivemega is selling a 3 Pila adapter to use with the Stinger for use with his 22-watt axial bulbs. It requires you to send him your head so he can install a Boro lens (high-temp glass). The batteries and bulbs are expensive, but it's really, really bright. Or, a cheaper mod, if you can find it, is his 2 pila adapter, which allows you to use a tl-3 bulb in your stinger.

Hi,

Thanks! I will try to hunt down his thread on the Stingers. I have two of those as well as two Scorpions.
