    They will only accept the flat top single wrap batteries of those sizes of course.
    Internal diameter should be about 18.3mm.

    Absolutely no protected and fat 18650 cells for obvious reasons, so don't even try.
    I'll see how many idiots I get from eBay that ignores the warning and say their 3500mAh super fat protected 18650 don't fit.
    If it gets out of hand, I will revert back to 17.3mm internal diameter for a peace of mind.
    I honestly don't have the time for that crap no more.


    Cheers.

    The heads will be using the current generation gaskets and lens with current generation HA3 Black bezels. (our optional bezels will work on these heads, so you use our QPQ Black, Stainless, Copper, Brass, Titanium bezels on these if you like.)

    These will be 18650 (non-protected, single wrap cells ONLY) and 18350 (non-protected cells ONLY) compatible

    Mark, advance kudos on these bodies. Obvious runtime and modding (circuit) choice is one advantage.

    ---

    Considering the limitation of e-series head-side thread, only limited batteries will fit on them.

    With some members now having these new classic e-series bodies, it would be a great if they can list down their batteries with them that works / fits.

    I would be interested -- since I only have a few unprotected 18650s and none yet for 18350.

    My shortest cells, which are VTC6 and 30Q flat tops, fit fine but need the springs stretched just a bit. If I didnít have springs on both sides I would be inclined to put a very small spacer.

    I have an unprotected GA button top from some shop that did a clear shrink over the stock wrapper, and it doesnít fit, not even close. I expect normal flat top GA to fit but I didnít have any easily available.

    I tried a Vapcell 18350 which works fine. I can test KeepPower and Efest and Epoch later.

    I also discovered the E2T head works flawlessly on low and high. That now transforms the Tactician into my dream light with that good 18650 runtime and power. Kudos to Mark for keeping the lego dream alive!

    Hi Guys,

    Thank you for all the support.

    I'll try to get these up on the site tomorrow along with a bunch of other stuffs.
    Been super busy with my newborn daughter so things has slowed down a bit.

    The bodies will be available in HA3 Black for the time being because I was not happy with the shade of the HA3 Naturals.
    I am making a new batch, hopefully it will be better.

    I did not intentionally made it work with the E2T Tactician head, so no guarantee it will work.
    My official statement is that it will NOT work with the high/low beam of the E2T head unit.


    Cheers.

    Mark, can you at least post some of the finished HA-Nat?

    Maybe some of the members would be comfortable or prefer them with that particular shade.

    Unless -- you are returning them all back to the anodizers.

    Agreed- as long as there are tailcaps that are close I would be satisfied to purchase these, it's not like HA Nat ever matches anyway.

    I'm glad to see the black lights coming onto the market. I will say Mark was very quick to get back to my inquiry, but I was a little hesitant to share that conversation here since the timeline for getting them onto the website is tied up with his personal life, and I didn't want to give away those details or put words in his mouth around the release.

    Like a lot of us, I'm eager for the HA Natural finished bodies to come out. Of course, I also understand that Mark is putting the Lumens Factory logo onto them, so above all else they need to meet HIS standards, not ours. That said, I do agree with other posters here that a lot of HA Natural products (even finely made ones) don't match perfectly, and that's part of the charm.

    No, our eBay shop is "impreza1000".
    "Shastadeals" is EDC Plus's eBay store, they are one of our US dealers.

    Hi.

    Did you find the time to test some other cells?

    I would be interested in the Keeppower 18350.

    WOW good catch, I nearly missed these! I was on LF looking for some Elite heads for my E1 & E2 and just so happened to read your post, NICE!!!! I have recently been bitten by the Lumen Factory bug and have been really enjoying Mark's incans in P60 format. Every time I order I say to myself "That's it, that's enough" and less than a week later I'm making a new shopping list again lol.

    Anyone tried using the E2 Classic Gen 1, 2 Cell Flashlight Body (18650 Non-Protected Compatible) with Malkoff heads such as the E2XT or E2 Hyper Throw? Looking at alternatives to the Malkoff 18650 body or the Oveready E70 body.

    Works fine on my MDC head but I did have to pull the springs a little on the tailcap and head to get a strong contact.

    So far the LF bodies have worked on every head with E-series thread/head dimensions that Iíve tried. I have two of the 18350 bodies and one 18650 body. I also use the OR E35/E70 bodies interchangeably with the LF bodies on the same E-series type heads. So, Iím sure theyíll fit the Malkoff E-series compatible stuff.

    Thanks. Still trying to figure whether to get the LF e bldy or OR e70 to pair with Malkoff E2XT.

    The OR bodies are awesome if you donít mind using C-series tailcaps. I have a few OR bodies set up, but prefer the E-series tailcaps with E-series heads. So, the LF bodies let me do that.

    E-series tailcaps are smaller so that is nice too.

    I have 2 6Ps (one twisty Z41, the other with a black z59 clicky plus a recently bought Malkoff MD tailcap). So, I guess I am leaning towards the OR E70 since I am a C-series guy. I have zero E-series bodies and tailcaps. The tailcaps would then be interchangeable. Although I admit I am tempted to try the e-series.

    A reason that made me look at LF E body is because of its non-anodized threads and better compatibility with unprotected 18650s (i only have unprotected Sanyo 18650s).
    OR seems like it would need a 19mm copper spring washer + some sort of spacer to work with the Malkoff E2XT head + unprotected 18650s.

    The driver side spring definitely has to travel much further inside the body to touch the battery in the Oveready bodies. Internally, the are the opposite as the LF bodies. The OR bodies are rear loading so there is at least .25Ē of space in front of the battery on the driver side. The LF bodies are front loading so the gap is on the tailcap side.

    I believe that it says somewhere on ORís site that the E-bodies are only compatible with the new ďspringĒ style SF heads. Iíve made them work with the button type SF E-series heads, but they definitely work better with a spring style driver. I think the LF bodies would work better with unprotected cells since the springs have less to travel inside the body. Youíd definitely need a spacer in the OR bodies if you have to stretch the springs a little for the LF bodies.
