    What are the dimensions of the 18350 and 18650 light?

    Wow yes! The big E and a 18650 tube to go with it would be great thanks, trigger waiting.......

    Is it water resistant- how would this light perform in salt-water?

    Yes, and I've got some new LEDs on order. They will be easy to mod as they use standard size stars and I've tried to make the components fit together like LEGOs. I'll put up some pics of the internals for each light when I get a bit of time.

    On a sidenote, this week I'm working on parts for a 'wireless' version of this light. A model where the LED will fit in with no soldered components or wires at all - that one will be very easy to mod.

    Yes they are water resistant. I've tested them to 5-gallon bucket depth, but I'm going to get the seals working to below 20 feet with 50 feet for an hour as a goal. My old model was capable of 80+ feet, but every time I make a new unit with a new optic new testing has to be done. I haven't had a chance to test deep in a lake yet. That will be the end of this month.

    Salt water is a good test! I'll make a salt solution and post how it works out with a 24 hour test (it should hold up just fine...there won't be any important exposed parts)

    Pretty sure I was on a list or at least following this project back then. Definitely want to be on a list again for the small version. That is what I was waiting for. Welcome back!

    I think a waiting list needs to be written.

    I agree. I'm working on updating the thread with more tech specs and info as well.

    Updated the 2nd post with a waiting list. I will edit it to reflect the desired models as well.

    I've ordered components for some of the special requests, so some may be a bit out of order waiting on these components.

    Put me on the list...not sure I want a Big E or the 18650. Only have 123's and 18650's...not sure I want another battery type, but, that Big E looks great. Emitter to be determined. Love my 3-4K's though.

    If the 18650 is indeed 43mm wide, I'll just limit my self to the 18350 tiny nugget. Thanks.

    Thanks so much for the testing! I almost jumped on the 18350, but I'm surrounded by brine

    Yes, the new Lumenite 26350/18650 engine is roughly the same width as the old 26650 light (the Qzark). The reason for the width of the old light is because of how the light engine functioned and the piston assembly needing to be located on the outer edges of the light engine. The newer models have a much better design allowing me to use bigger, more efficient optics. So now the old optic used in the Qzark I've been able to use in the Tiny Nugget, keeping a narrow profile and not wasting space. And the bigger lights use much nicer optics.

    Here is a pic comparing the Lumenite on the left vs the old engine on the right:
