If it's like the D25c twisty...it does turbo for 90 seconds than backs off to regular high on it's own.

It is safe to replace two CR123 batteries with a 18650 ?  I want to use that on my Surefire Fury.

Normally, yes but the Fury doesn't take 18mm cells.

 

The cell size you would want is a 17670. I recommend the AW brand for runtime, reliability, and longevity.

 

Those ultrafire/trustfire cells suck, they're made from recycled laptop cells that they just repackage and they lose power when stored a lot faster than I'd like for if shiet ever goes down like a blackout or I gotta really pee at night and I don't wanna wake anybody.

Thanks.  I didn't even know there was such a battery.

HDS Systems (AKA RA Lights) does make some amazing lights. They/he (Henry) are one of the first to really push light quality over lumens and that you just need "enough" light, not some blinding amount.

I definitely don't "need" one and can't afford one right now, but they look very solid.  I really like the holster, would have to make room somewhere on my duty belt for a second light though :p

Thanks for reminding me they exist.. I don't know if I want to trade my Oveready 800 lumen Surefire 6P based build out for one, but it's clearly one of the superior EDC options out there.

Unless your needs entirely flip-flopped or your philosophy has changed, I don't see you ever replacing your Overready with a HDS either.

I'm finally ordering a Malkoff drop-in for my old 6P, as the old-fashioned light bulb just about makes me sick these days. Why haven't I upgraded sooner? False economy--I'd always find a complete flashlight that I'd rather spend a little more for. Otoh the Malkoff MD2 is definitely calling my name.

Nice, the one on the right. Tempting, but I need to stay with longer shelf life non-rechargeable batteries and the 175 lu/ 5 hr runtime M61L, as this 6P is not a use everyday flashlight. 

post #763 of 804

As long as it lights up what ever i need and is small.

Got MTE C3-907 "Small sun" max 170lm, has 3 power levels. runs of one AA battery., nice little guy :)

Just bought a new flashlight for the first time in almost 2 years.

 

Of course it has to be a pocket rocket.

 

 

 

Unfortunately, it's bored for 18mm cells, as it draws too much current for 16340 (RCR123).  But it does work with a single 17670, albeit at a lower output level.  So it's not completely compatible with my other E-Series lights, my favorite flashlight platform by far.

 

On burst mode it puts out an insane amount of light.  And gets really hot really fast.

Nitecore MT2C

 

The only dislike so far is the U-shaped tailcap.
