What is the typical outside diameter (inch/mm) for a 26650 flashlight/torch battery tube?

willie, not sure if there is a typical and it should be listed in the specs on any vendor site, but here's what I have for OD:

Shadow JMO7 (26650/18650) - 31.5mm  http://fancyflashlights.com/goods.php?id=28
Trustfire A8 (26650) - 33mm  http://fancyflashlights.com/goods.php?id=384

EDIT: One more for you -

TangsFire HD2010 (26650/18650) - 33mm  http://www.tmart.com/TangsFire-HD2010-CREE-XMLT6-6W-1200LM-5-Mode-Waterproof-Flashlight-Gray_p144455.html  Note that specs list diameter as 35mm. Measuring mine, the body tube is 33, and the Tail Cap is 35mm.

Thanks for the fast reply. A few more would be good.
Here is my concern and it seems like lathe turning will be needed. I have been using 1”/25.4 mounts for weapon lights. The next step up is 30mm. I like power hungry emitters and lifepo4 batteries. The easy way to higher capacity is bigger 26650 cells.

I have been making battery tubes for 26650 batteries out of 26mm Id, 32mm Od tube. I dont touch the outside and bore the Id out slightly.
