Anyone know of a commercially made flashlight that has:

Looking for a commercially made flashlight that will run on 2 protected 26650’s and has:

1. A MT-G2 emitter with an adjustable focus

or

2. A XP-L V5 emitter with an adjustable focus

I found a flashjlight that looks like it will run on 1 26650:

Thanks,

The light linked will not take a 26650 if it takes 3 x AAA without a sleeve which it does not appear to. The sleeve in the picture is an adapter to take a single 18650. 

I've just modified 4 lights that appear identical to this light to get rid of next mode memory and removed the spring from the driver so protected 18650 battery's can be used. The pills in mine were hollow.

Maybe try a Uniquefire UF-1405. The units from GearBest takes two 26650 batteries, but it runs off an XM-L2 LEDs. My copy of this flashlight could throw about 700 feet. Swapping out the LED and Driver I am now able to throw about 2500 feet.

You could get a Yezl Y3 configured for 2×26650, e.g.:

http://www.cnqualitygoods.com/goods.php?id=1997

That comes with an XM-L2 U2, so you’d need to get someone (or you could do it yourself) replace the emitter+star with an XP-L of your choice.

BTW, why are you looking for 2×26650? Those would presumably be in series, so you wouldn’t get any runtime advantage.

If you’re really saying that you’re looking for just a 26650 light, then either the Yezl Y3 configured for 1×26650 or maybe an HD2010, with an XP-L swapped in, would do?

Modified 2Dmag unless you’re looking for a zoomie in which case I suggest checking out the uniquefire 1405
