I saw them in a local shop for not a lot. Can't check the price right now as someone seems to have broken their web server but I will try when I get home from work. I am geting 3+ seconds ping times that ought to be under 100ms and traceroute is dropping packets all over the place.

Thanks, but I was talking about searching in internet sites. I have seen on ebay but veeeeeeery expensive. But this is one of the oldest flashlgiths that I have and I consider it as a "intouchable", so I will not mod it to LED (terralux upgrade = even more expesive)

Lambda was talking about making an XM-L dropin for it. It is not likely to be budget though.

I think this is what you are looking for.

1.76 euros each. They weigh very little so postage should not be too expensive.

I suspect it is going to need something like a 14500 and a spacer to power it or it is going to take a huge current from a pair of NiMH. I'd reckon that thing would be nearly impossible to run on alkalines.

They have a retail store close to where I live. I'd be happy to post any small and light item for you. Which will cost a lot less than most stores charge for overseas postage.

If you put Aberdeen in the Check store's stock box, you can find out if my local store has it.

 

Maplin used to be an electronic components supplier, these days they are more of a gadget shop that also has some components. They are famously expensive though - I normally only buy stuff I need immediately or when it is marked as 50% or more off.

 

a 2.5" drive holder that cost me 10 euros from DX was on "special offer" in my local Maplin for 50 euros!
