Done. With the PCB the cell measured 75mm. With the protection circuit removed and solder blob added it now measures 72mm. Should fit, right?

Freeme, can you please send me a PM. Not sure why I don’t see my name on the interest list. I’ve posted my interest twice. Thanks.

What about updates to the quiescent current draw? And low lumen efficiency?

Oh yea that’s a very important one. Would suck to have the battery drained in a month just leaving it in the light.

That should be exactly the same length as the button top 21700 they recommend.

You would need to either add a solder blob or remove the reverse polarity protection ring.

I have yet to buy any 21700’s. Hence why I was inquiring about any deals/sales

Oh, you mean unrelated to what fits in this light?

Most name brand are around $10 to $14. A good deal on a 4000mah would be the Sofirn. It’s about the same as the Samsung 40T. High amperage and true 4000mah. They are $6.28 each or 2 for $10.22. The price gets cheaper as you order more.

Another good bargain 21700 is the LISHEN LR2170SA which is the same as the yellow Liitokala lii-40A. Both 4000mah. I think these are also around $6 to $7 each.

If you want a high capacity cell, like a 50E, you’ll have to spend $10 on it.

I am wondering how would this light compare to the Lumintop ODL20C, almost the same specs except for battery and a better UI, I am interested in a beamshot comparison, that would make me decide if to buy it or just keep my ODL20C.

If you see a review or comparison online let me know.

My FT02 prototype has close to 700m throw (120Kcd+). You can expect higher readings for retail version, as FT02 undergo driver upgrade and better polishing for its reflector.

Will they change the battery compartment to support flat top 21700 batteries before they start to ship the orders?

Maukka and manufacturer do not have problem using their Samsung flat top. However, my stock LiShen unprotected 21700 will not work with this light because of the size of anode connector is too big for the opening.

Manufacturer will look into this issue.

My unprotected flat top LiitoKala 21700 4000mAh battery which is supposedly a Lishen does work just fine.
