- And.... those gorgeous 6AA -> 2D and 9AA -> 3D adapters!!

Yesssssssssssss!!!
Does not need to be rechargeable, make it simple. It is easy and better to charge Eneloops independently with those high quality universal chargers.

Anybody else for 1x18500 version of these?



I think that a 18350 would be preferred since it can hold a 5mm LED and a 3V cr123 battery. This is a very good setup, I have used a 5mm 3200K yuji in a 2x AA maglite and it is great!

I am aware of your C-C bodies but these 1794/1499 lights are focusable and this is why they are great

That is exactly what I was asking for. It's time Fivemega does another run of these. If you lack a Surefire turbohead: that's no problem, Lumens Factory also has a fitting head. LED as well as incan. The ONLY part that's missing is... exactly this 3S 3X 18650 Megalennium!!

or perhaps 3x21700 since every extra bit of juice is welcome in high power incands.

@fivemega, how much thicker would be a 21700 version compared to stock m6 tube?

3X 21700 like the Megalennium with tri-angular 18650 setup will be WAY too thick to hold
3X 21700 in series (all behind each other) would result in a kind of 6D M*g WAY too long flashlight
3X 18650 in a tri-angular shape like the Megalennium 3S is JUST PERFECT! Add a few 3600mAh Klarus 18650s and you are good to go...

Long time fan of your work FM. I've been lurking around this forum drooling over your lights for atleast 12 years.

Single 21700 p60 host, ability to add extenders.

Tripple 21700 host that has 2 disconnectable sections in parallel. Ability to add 3 parallel 21700 sections into series to run Lumen factory IMR series with long run times switching from 4.2, 8.4, 12.6. Head adapters for D26, D36 and M series capable. Extra space between battery and lamps for better heat dissipation and ability to run IMR series without over heating batteries.

TURN KEY lights that run bulbs like the 64656 and 64663.

A Maglite 2C with sleeve and bored Tailcap should be able to accomodate 2x 21700. This is what I plan do do since month now, I only do not have the time. However, a dedicated 2x 21700 body, which is compatible with SF C or M series heads, would be great!
Each protected 21700 cell is 75mm long so 3C M*g has same battery space length without need of any extender. (2x75=150mm) (3x50=150mm)
What about 2x21700 battery barrel and tail cap for M*g "D" head similar to
this but take M*g "D" head. Why M*g "D" because can also install 3" head.


A 2x26650 c tail m head light would be awesome.
This should be a 2x21700 battery barrel and tail cap for $urefire M6/M4 head? Just imagine $urefire M4 with little thicker barrel and McClicky installed tail cap. MN20 will run close to two hours per charge.
Any interest?

That's a good idea. 2x21700 with McClicky tailcap so AW can be installed also. Surefire M head or even MagD would be great.
I'm in anyhow for this combo.

I think that a bigger incand host should be 3x 3.7V

There are plenty 2x 3.7v host options around already but not so much of good bulbs for them

This can accommodate 2x21700 unprotected cells which are about 144mm length. The question is how safe is it to run these large cells in series.
I already have a setup to utilize them, but I am hesitant.
2x 21700 protected are around 150mm depending on the individual cells. 3c Mag body is this length already.
You could use a bored tailcap and a C extension tube (FM 17mm) it would get you pretty close. If you can find protected 22700 that are 73mm or so long, it will work.

I would like a PWM circuit, as it was in SF A2, but to work from 2 parallel 21700 or 4 cp123 or 4 18350 with a choice of battery protection. All of steel. 2 reflectors and 3 lamps - for throw (1 bulb) and flood beam (2 bulb), controlled separately, but the type of 2 lamps is the same and 1 small lamp - 625 lm overall (300 lumens per 2 big lamp + 25 lm small flood lamp)

Something like Streamlight Twin Task? One sideswitch to control one throw bulb and several peripheral leds but in this case a few low power 3.7V bulbs.

I have no idea what you mean)) I only know the Dominator X10, but it has a bad battery and is too big. I thought about body something like a Fenix LD50, but a incan and separate control (separate button for low and high beam), and most importantly, brightness stabilization and battery protection.

update

yeah, found this models of Streamlight, I liked with the laser, especially if replace all the diodes with a high CRI 3000K

I would like to see a 2x21700 version of Fivemega's 2x26650 C-head body-and-tailcap. Great versatility. Use a Z44 bezel to run a P90 (or Malkoff), or substitute FM's turbohead to use with that same P90, or put on a C-to-M adapter to run an MN15 or MN20 in a SF turbohead, for very decent runtimes.

Perhaps there could be 2 versions. One with a Surefire C head, and one with a G4 socket, that could take a Mag "D" head. I'd probably buy both.

I don't know if this thread is still being followed or not. And I don't know what type of demand you're going to get for this but I know some people have been looking. A metal reflector for the mag light ML 25 IT lights. These are a fantastic little light but the only reflectors available for them are the stock plastic ones. If you were to make a VVLOP reflector for one of these I know I would buy a couple. Either a direct replacement. Bifocal. Or deep reflector. Just a tiny bit to clean up the beam but not lose much throw
