Rechargeable D size NiMH help

Hello as the subject says, im looking for help or advice of what some good quality rechargeable NiMH cells are? Any brand i should avoid? I currently own two(2)
Tenergy Centura 5000mah LSD D NiMHs.

I just got a Husky 1,000 lumen 3D triple LED flashlight as a gift yesterday and i actually really like it. Heavy but it would come in handy during a power outage or something. Heck it would make a great self defense tool! I am not saying to use it as a weapon or to go and hurt anyone/anything with this.

Anyway…. Any tips or suggestions you all have would be greatly appreciated!!

I do have some AA to D adapter things i got off Amazon forever ago, but they are very cheap feeling.

Thanks Smile

I can't seem to properly link the 2nd link due to the parentheses so please copy paste and add "https:" at the beginning of it.

Does this link work?

Then search for “Tensai D TR-C8000” and also for “Tensai D TR-D10000”

Shit, it doesn’t… How does HKJ link to his site? Ok, how about this ? Should be the first google option.

Then search for “Tensai D TR-C8000” and also for “Tensai D TR-D10000”

yes i found HJK site. LSD is best for flashlights correct if theyre gonna be in there for a while? I got a Husky 1000 lumen claimed triple 3 D led flashlight as a gift and i really like it to be honest

thank you. I will read up on those batteries. I dont remember if i mentioned anything about me having a Tenergy Universal charger to charge the D size batteries in. Its the TN299
I think thats right

I can’t find any reviews on the Tenergy TN299 but nothing about it seems disconcerting so I’d say you’re fine.

ok thanks! I couldnt find anything about it either. so i figured id ask. I was thinking about just going with those AA to D cell adapters, but the capacity would be lower so runtime would go down. idk by how much though.

I might have the wrong name for the charger.. let me check real quick. I like that i can charge 4 D at a time

Those ReCyko 5700mAh and Soshine 11000mAh look really nice. Thanks for the link.

Why no convert to accept single 18650 OR 26650 battery? I modified the 650 lumen and 1000 lumen version of this light to accept BOTH single 18650 OR 26650.

On related note : I modified the Police Security branded 1050 lumen 6 D cell flashlight to accept 2 18650 OR 2 26650 batteries. The flashlight blows Maglite 6 D Cell flashlight in terms of lumen output and aggressive strike bezel head.

I don’t know how to do that and probably don’t have the tools to do that either. How would I do that?
Are you talking about the Husky light?
