Where could i get a good host for...

I recently came across a 14430 battery, and it charges no problem in my SOshine Charger....

now the question is, this battery would make a PERFECT power source for a super small, super bright host (say q5? or R5!!!)

BUT!!!! i cant find anything anywhere on a flashlight this size, except for a 338 dollar flashlight from back in the day

 

 

with this battery now being in hardware stores (tho it is pricey, at lowes a 2 pack is 13 bux, 3.2V 400mAh)

i think we should start seeing more hosts using it!

while run time would be low (my guess the best it could handle is 1A, ergo about 20 mins lol) with mutliple modes this could be the best keychain light of all time!!!

There's the Orb Raws which use 14250s - not all that cheap though.

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

You can try to search it in some online store base on the size
