    ALL THE WAY AROUND BORED M*G "D"




    Please read this post completly
    before ordering

    Hi folks,
    Now I have following battery holders ready to ship.
    White serial 16AA to 4D adapters to power up to 19.2 volt bulb in 4D bored out M*g
    White serial 12AA to 3D adapters to power up to 14.4 volt bulb in 3D bored out M*g
    White serial 8AA to 2D adapters to power up an WA1164 in 2D bored out M*g
    White serial 4AA to 1D adapters to power up a 4.8 Volt bulb or LED in 1D (or 4 IMR 14500, 14.8V) bored out M*g
    White serial 4x14670 to 1.25D for multiple LED operation (Terralux) in 1.25D bored out M*g (14.8 volt application).
    Black serial/parallel 12AA to 3D adapters (7.2 volt) to power up WA1111 or ROP in 3D bored out M*g (high capacity and long run application).
    Black serial/parallel 8AA to 2D adapters (4.8 volt) to power up WA1183 or regulated LED in 2D bored out M*g (high capacity application).
    Black serial/parallel 4x14670 for higher capacity 7.4 volt operation in bored out M*g.
    Please follow Positive and Negative marks printed as P and N
    Aloso allign red marks on upper and lower white plastic when loading and gold marks on black plastic then GENTLY tighten upper nut.
    Remember, white plastic adapters are connected in all serial and black plastic adapters are connected in serial/parallel. So black 12AA is basically 2 groups of 6 serial then both groups connected in parallel.
    These adapters can be used in either quad or all the way around bored out M*gs only.
    Inner diameter of M*g "D" body must be 35.1mm or at least size of tail side threads to fit. No guarantee to fit in unbored stone aged M*g.
    Please see 3AA to 1D, 6AA to 2D, 9AA to 3D and 12AA to 4D battery holders here.
    All adapters come with female tail jack connector (installed) and I will include male jack too. Batteries NOT included
    Remember, center pin of charging jack is POSITIVE
    It is highly recommended to use this feature for recharging batteries by any smart battery pack charger like this for NiMH or this for lithium ion cells. However it is possible to remove batteries to recharge or replace.
    Please do not use two of these adapters in same flashlight for higher voltage.
    No warranty for bulbs. I do not sell bulbs for profit. The only reason I sell bulb here is for your convenience to get everything in same package and same time. If this is not acceptable, please get the bulbs elsewhere.

    Good to see you back in the battery adapter game Fivemega! Any chance of a batch of three-cell adapters (1D/3AA, 2D/6AA, etc) anytime soon? *warming up Paypal button*

    I'm interested to know how you managed to cram 8AA in the footprint of a 2D, care to share this new methodology?

    how do you recharge 4S2P battery pack?

    I think you have to take apart batteries...

    Hi Varooj,

    What is the outside diameter of these serial AA adapters?

  10. #10

    Default Re: 4AA to 1D, 8AA to 2D, 12AA to 3D M*g

    Has there been a change in the design of the bottom so that the center rod won't strip out of the plastic if the cap is overtightened? You implied as much in another message-- just want to confirm.

    Thanks.

    Serial 4AA to 1D adapters to power up an WA1183 or drop in LED in 1D bored out M*g

    so does this mean the stock D mag battery tube will not fit this?

    Correct. The circle around four AA batteries is bigger then the inner diameter of a Mag D tube. The Mag has to be bored out to fit the (4x)AA > (1x)D adapters

    I think FM still has some 3AA to 1D adapters per this thread if you want an AA to D adapter to fit an unbored M*g.

    My FM 4AA to 1D measures 1.340" at the plastic round part where it meets the battery terminals (widest part without batteries), and with a Duracell AA coppertop inserted it measures 1.357" at the widest point, which is at the batteries.

    Do you have the aluminium reflectors? It links to a 'sold out' topic.

    Update on my last post in this topic:

    Four eneloop AA's do fit a Mag D body without boring.

    The GP 1300 and 1600 AA's also fit. The 2100's and 2700's and Recyko's of GP do not fit (although I have to test the 2100's again since I tested with the most abused set. (Hey look kinda weird - have been short circuited for around 20 seconds in a Maglite 3D- )

    @FM: What is the fine for buying a reflector without buying an adapter? I just don't like the bored out Mag's.

    I figured it out...its 4 rows of cells instead of 3
    I didn't get it on the first try. I was wondering what "bored out" had to do with it
