All M2R are capable of running 20700 4000mAh cells if you just simply pull out the center sleeve. Only sided switch will work.
How many lumens out a Lil Vortex p60vn would you estimate?Illumn has these 18650 Nextorch polymer host for under $10 with a 80Lumen Incan P60 and 2 CR123A!
I grab one for fun and its a great host!
I just made a battery vampire P60vn with the following specs and its amazing!
- Simple 2 mode Low-High with last mode memory
- 40L-465L with 18650
- Battery Vampire
- 219b 4500K 90CRI
- Smooth reflector with perfect tuned beam

WOW those Emisars! Absolutely gorgeous! I just can't do it to myself though now. But HUBBA HUBBA!!!!
How does it handle that much output in a plastic body? Drop in gets hot of course but I know the parts can handle it fine. I ran it non stop 2 cycle already with no issue. As I mention before the electronics can handle heat way more than our hands can. And the drop in was hot but not anywhere near dangerously hot.
IIRC ~300lm pushes it in the Nitrolon Surefires. TBH, I wouldn't mind a 50% decrease in output on such a light.
BUT an 18650 compatible plastic-fantastic sounds like a very good idea..... Should have grabbed a couple with my last Illumn order!
What is the tailcap/switch like on the Nextorch? Its alright. It works but a bit stiff and the audible click is not very satisfying. The plastic host is alright too. Nothing to write home about.
What is your overall impression of the host, say compared to a Surefire G2 Nitrolon? IMO plastic host better float. If it doesn't float then its a fail. I need to drop this thing in water to see if it does that. Another advantage I see with a plastic host is for electricians. One less shorting tool risk. The G2 is a bit nicer from memory but at the end of the day plastic feels cheap and that's that.
The "Battery Vampire P60vn" would be a great addition to your P60vn lineup.... just sayin' Yes I am looking into more vampire drain circuit. But then who really needs a vampire drain 18650? Who is trying to kill a 18650? Perhaps a vampire 2*CR123A makes more sense? :twothumbs

My beloved Lab Sharpei mix Lucy who's 16 year's old was diagnosed today with Leukemia. Sad day very sad! She is our child.
Thank you guy's it really helps to know you care. I just got up and kissed her and snuggled her some more we have decided to put her to sleep Saturday at 11:00am. She is the main reason why I got into flashlights she loved them especially my Vinh lights[emoji17]
