Not sure if this has been asked or not, but would it be safe to run 2 CR123 batteries in the M61 HOT (XP-L HI 740 lumen) or would it draw to many amps?
Draw will exceed the amount of juice a cr123 can pump. In theory it creates a short causing the battery to heat up. In practice many limit FET driven flashlights by using a lower discharge battery. An example is pairing a Lumintop FW3A with a 10amp Sanyo NCR18650GA.
Run time would be really low with a CR123 anyways
@kerneldrop The M61HOT head is nearly 1.25'' in diameter, but the diameter of the kydex holster you measured in your post is only 1''. Consequently, I'm not sure if I can use a kydex holster made for lights between 1.15'' and 1.4'' diameter.@QMT93 - Concealment in general depends on where it's positioned and the clothes worn. The bezel is a friction fit in the kydex...so the fit is snug around the bezel. There is no side-to-side movement or wiggle when the MD2 is seated.
There's several choices for bezel up. Here is one: https://www.etsy.com/listing/747754...t-holster?ref=shop_home_active_14&frs=1&crt=1
Here's a USA made fabric option (I prefer the softer padded material over the nylon webbing, but the nylon has a better flap): https://ripoffs.com/flashlight-holsters/
Any holster fitting a Surefire 6P should work for the MD2.
Ripoff Holsters: The non-nylon holster fits bezel up or down and is $12 i think. There's 100s of sizes.
I saw that too. I was disappointed they discontinued the green 18650 hound dog. I didn’t have a chance to buy one. Also the new models are a good jump in price from the 18650 head and lux is cut in half (old one was rated at 90k)From Gene;
Something special for you,
We are Discontinuing the Hound Dog 18650 Red and Green Heads and are Proud to Introduce the New Malkoff Long Distance Red and Green E2XT Scout/M600 Heads Today. Get yours before they're gone!
Please Note: These will NOT fit Duel Fuel or 18650 WML Bodies.
Who here edc's a 61 hot other than me. Also can't seem to see the hot on his website anymore.
