That's pretty neat. I'd like to see what a CPF'er could do with this concept - right now I'm looking at the flat rectangular 760 mAh LiIon that goes in my Canon camera. Maybe a pair of these cells could be stuffed into the Zippo along with an appropriate driver & LED ... :devil:

below polar circle.. in country which used to make
i was once lookin at itp eos and 10440 and zippo.

looking at it like i sometimes look at my old cellphone and mc-e led. momentary only. original battery.

i sometimes also looked at my zebralight h501 and the cellphone and two AA batteries and thought about "frankenstain".

..when i made my own "paclite" i thought about the zippo too.. but i think the 9v battery didnt fit.
