Ahh, I see. Ok, thanks David.
Not that I intended to use primaries, but the thought occurred for a second, (based on someone’s earlier post) that adapting a holder for primaries might be useful in a pinch or for the non-lithium-ion initiated. The idea of a carrier was short sighted however; using primaries would also introduce problems related to someone mistakenly trying to recharge them using the 4056 since it would see the voltage range for Li-Ion cells and, it seems, provide a charge current, yuck SickFacepalm

You have to consider not every traveller has a 10Ah+ (let’s stick to capacitiy, so 40Wh+) powerbank. Means it has to be large enough to fit 4× 18650 cells and weight around 300g if it’s made of plastic.
Most can deliver 1A, some have only one port wich can deliver up to 2A.
Even power plugs only deliver at best 2,5A.

It’s better to stay realistic.

Would it be possible to use a light pipe so that the LEDs would still be mounted in the base but the light would be emitted downwards like a traditional lantern?

@DBSAR
Unfortunately photobucket did change the policy. So from 1st of july 2017, no embedding of images on third-party websites, such as personal blogs and forums, is possible for free anymore.
They sell this function now for $399/year.

So is it possible to reupload the pictures to a fair image hoster?

Now the thread has raised to 12 pages, what speaks for your project. I’m very curious about the result too Smile
Any news for the crowd?
