I have a R2 dropin lying idle, so I jumped at it and bought a 2 AA type as all my other P60 hosts are 18650

Now that is a steal.........i have a lot of 2 AA formats though that keeps me happy.  It would be an ideal light since one can change the dropins.......

With Darkness, there will always be Light.

I did that, then realised that none of my dropins would work at 2.4V nominal and didn't fancy running 2 14500s.

 

So I got another dropin.

 

The numbers from my light tests are always to be found here.

Another cheap L2 "body" (because for that price you get 7.4 V xenon module and holster)

I hate it when the shipping is more than the light. In this case 50% more. Still, $14.98 isn't a bad price for what you get.

15 $ are a bit more than the 9 $ I gave for the 2AA body. I have several xenon P60 lying around.

They are no good, gives no light and eats batteries faster than my dog eats a meatball.

 

A holster you can get from DX for 1.99. Very well made. I have the small and the medium one. Recommend both.

 

But keep those recommends for cheap lights comming. Thats what I like with this forum. Anyone can buy a expensive

light. Just ask on CPF, they dont know any other! But the fun starts when you can get a good light for small money.

I got my Solarforce body today. Vey fine workmankship, nice finish.  Nice thick wall, All threads are lubed and good o-rings

in both ends. Clicky works perfect. Could have done without the attackbezel, but nice to have if you meet a mugger when

walking the dog.

Put in 2 14500s and a P60 and got a lot of light.
