XP-G at 1.4 amps/ 26650

Hey all, I'm totally addicted to buying flashlights, I just received the kd c8 xm-l, and wow, I think I'm in love. I can't stop though, I don't have an xp-g thats driven at 1.5 amps, and I'm desparate for something with a bit more throw, and also a 26650 flashlight. 
So I was thinking of buying this:


hoping that it would fit a 26650. I want to put in an xp-g, and this driver: http://www.dealextreme.com/p/romisen-rc-u8-cree-xp-er5-3-mode-350-lumen-...


This would hopefully be an xp-g 1.4 amp thrower that uses the 26650.


The driver is a little expensive for what it is, but I really want that high powered xp-g, and they're nowhere to be found.


Any thoughts?

that wont work out too well, sorry

26650 wont fit in that.


but for a good 18650 set up look at these




youll also need an XP-G on a 21mm board. i just got that case and it no longer uses 16mm, uses 20 or 21mm now

If you want something that throw you could get a

PALIGHT C8 Q5 LED 5-Mode or PALIGHT C8 R5 LED 5-Mode both have memory mode and are $16.99.

Not sure how hrad they are driven. Excellent value.

Or the Q5 single mode MRV at the same vendor. The 1jc8 at 13usd is a steal. Expect a review this week.

I hadn't seen those drivers on kd, it can be hard to find things there. I might have to go ahead on them. 

So I guess 3xaaa hosts won't hold 26650? Pity. 

I had thought about getting a c8 r5, or even r2, that should put out some decent throw. On the other hand, I already have a 2x18650 host/shell coming from lightake, so I'll have to decide whether to put in an xm-l or xp-g.
