Only thing I know that uses them. 

 

http://www.component-shop.co.uk

 

Click on Batteries

Radio Control

Single Cells

the 1/2 D are the 4th from the bottom and are £3.20 each.

 

They are actually 32mm diameter by 35mm long so two of them are 10mm longer than a single D cell as their spec is 32mmm diameter by 60mm long.

However, these are the correct cells for a Magcharger battery pack. Component shop will also sell you the heatshrink tubing to hold the pack together.

 

I've bought a fair amount of stuff from them and have had no problems with any order. they are somewhere in Wales

 

The numbers from my light tests are always to be found here.

What I fancy is a bulb that'll work with 6xLithium cells in a 6D Mag - i.e., a 24V bulb at up to 250W. Loads of projector bulbs ought to suit - better still, an 18V bulb of up to 200W. Would be real fun even if a 6D is rather far from easily portable. There is the $90 that 6 D cells will cost though. When KD get around to delivering them.
