There are other lanterns that do take 18650s, like this http://www.gearbest.com/led-flashlights/pp_22717.html , and with pull out diffusers.

Flashlight designers should look at lighthouses and pottery.
这些谁设计的手电筒应该看灯塔,以及在陶器。

yeah too bad its junk.
led hot enough to smell on fresh alkies.
melted the screws out of the carrier and died.
it sagged badly on the “player” batteries it came with.
it died on the energizers.
it would have caught fire on a 18500.
a regulated driver might have helped.i see the constraints in the design as far as heatsinking but it would be easy to double the area of that dinky tower!
