    Default Any Lights that take Multiple 14500 Batteries?

    I have a few lights that take a single 14500 battery so I have lots of 14500 batteries around.

    I was looking for a light that takes multiple 14500 cells--particularly the 2aa form factor.

    I have been unable to find a light like this. Anyone know of one?

    Thanks

    the Manker T02 will take 2x 14500 cells as well as regular NiMH AA batts.

    My (long discontinued) Fenix HL35 headlamp uses two (as well as AA's). It is still my go-to headlamp for hiking at night (which is different from "camping") and I am not even considering replacing it with something else.

    If you are into modding, convert a incan Mini Maglite to accept a p60 module and run it on x 14500

    if you wanted to use them up really fast there`s nothing stopping you dropping 3 of them into a D cell adaptor and using a pair of those in a 2D maglite, that would take care of 6 of them for you

    For a 2D Maglite:: is there a drop-in that takes 8.4V,, if so two (D) carriers 3x14500 in parallel voltage.

    does that make sense to anyone...?


    The 3 AA to D cell carrier times two in a Mag. (must be the parallel voltage type carrier)

    The Frelux appears to be sold out. Which surprises me considering it's price, although I guess if there weren't very many of them then that would be why it's sold out.

    Nitecore eA41, thrunite tn4a, fenix ld42, maker mk41 to name a few use 4x AA or 14500 or both

    Ditto the recommendation of the Fenix LD42 (4xAA). Also, the Fenix E25UE (Ultimate Edition) allows the use of 2xAA or 2x14500 cells (for a claimed 1000 lumens of cool white output using 14500's). It's my understanding that the E25UE model is no longer being produced, but there are small stocks of these lights still available from several of the reputable online sellers that support this forum. A quick search for "Fenix E25UE" should identify merchants with stock on hand. If this light is of interest to you, act fast, because the available stock reports show the supplies of this model are in the low single digits as of January 17, 2021.
