glad you got it sorted out.
once i really started getting into flashlights, i started taking tailcap readings of all my lights. got to my energizer ultimate 2xAA, started low, like 1a, rapidly raised to something like 4-5a and poof. $45 light killed because the driver tailcap. they did replace it for me though

i put a cell in my c108 backwards once, fried the driver…

It’s part of learning the ropes…. Probably most have done stuff like that, including myself :)… and then you learn not to do it :)!

Thanks for the review,I see the build quality is a bit lacking and the 3400 mah batteries are  no-go.I wanted a compact 1×18650 light for my toolbox at work,but I think I’ll pass on this one.Thank for your efforts Chicken drumstick.

Why don’t the 3400’s fit? These ones fit perfectly in it: http://www.fasttech.com/products/0/10001980/1345500-panasonic-ncr18650b-...

how do you judge the tint of the XM-L2 T6 1A CW? It is too cool? (blueish-greenish?)
