The Magnetic Pill Light

Another one just for fun, the magnetic pill light.
No head, no body, just a pill and a battery LOL

Designed to work with 18XXX cells, requires a little nick out of the wrapper at the top, I took a little too much out of the cell shown below.
The unit can be stored on the bottom of the cell via the magnet there when not in use and stuck to ferrous objects when in use.

Cree XP-G2 S4 2B
18mm ARC glass
3 mode Quark driver
Soild brass construction
Potted
Magnetic
Low – 12lm
Mid – 82
High – 160lm

I need to see if I still have those magnets with the centers open so a rod can be inserted, once you see those you would have tons of ideas, I will dig around and see if I can find them and mail them to you.. very cool light CRX, you are very creative..

I just took a break, I know they are in between the bags of springs, rice pins, a plastic bags of magnets up to 26650 size, somewhere in these 50 – 60 big boxes full of little boxes with labeling that must have meant something at the time but sure doesn’t ring any bells now, I sure have a lot of stuff, I love my junk building.

this is cool.
would this stay together, say, on the brim of a baseball cap? how about light rain?
I’m always looking for light lights, and you can’t go lighter than this.
