You can see the light without logging in. You have to log in to see the price.
Quite a versatile light: it can be operated from 1*3.0V to 2*4.2V.

Just wondering if the tubes are “meaty” enough to be reamed to 18.6mm to accommodate a 18650 battery.

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

I think it is not compatible with 18650.

Sorry for my poor english.

Oh, thanks for the explanation Wink I normally see it logged in so I didn’t know if non logged would see it!

Hum, the comments below the light are all talking about that eventual forced 18350/18650 compatibility. I couldn’t read all of them, but this was what I found:

Quote:
The Path is not compatible with 18650 cells. That 1mm diameter difference would have added a small but non-trivial amount of weight, and – more importantly – would also have required the addition of plastic sleeves for use with slimmer 1 or 2 CR123 cells. We do know that members like 18650-powered lights, and making a version of the Path that accepts them in the future is not out of the question. However, it’s more likely we’ll develop a specific 18650-powered light when we are not working from the starting point of interchangeable/removable barrel sections.

But no answer was completely clear about that, if I remember… Oops

For non-Massdrop members they are asking $59.99 + S&H for the light.

Personally, I am giving it a pass due to no 18650 compatibility. Otherwise, it looks great.

Massdrop is a joke. You have to log on to see price or make determination to buy? Come on now. For $60 you can use money towards much higher output light.

This coming from a guy that buys a lot of lights.

As a concept, I really like massdrop. Communities of enthusiasts arranging group buys of specialty items to get a better price. It falls apart when the “better” price is worse than what is easily found online and is partnered with legendarily slow shipping.

Concept might be nice. BUT still a JOKE.
