Olight TC15 Ti Battery Tube Build

The Olight TC titanium flashlight comes with two battery tubes, one for a 14500 cell and one for 16340.
I have only ever used the light with the 16340 tube and the spare had been sitting in a box for a couple of years.

This seemed like a waste of good titanium so... Cool

I filed out the tube to accommodate a 16340 cell and drilled a hole for a 16mm reflector in the end cap.
I used a pill module from an OTR M3, added a green LED for the lighted switch.
Still has the red LVP indicator.

XP-L2 HD v4 3C on 16mm KD DTP
ARC glass, Brushed reflector
M3 OTR driver
Lighted electronic side switch
Lockout-able
Magnetic tail
Graphite aesthetics
Max - 730lm OTF
67mm x 21mm
Weight - 64g with 16340 cell

Olight TC10.

You are a flashaholic if you are forced to come out of the closet, to make room for more flashlights.

For that kind of money, it’s good you put “all” the parts to good use. Nice job.
