Well darn-it! I wont receive my tubes for a few more days. Crying They sure look great and thanks for teasing us with photos. Im looking forward to testing the QB26800 in my copper FT03S with SBT90.2. The additional capacity will be most welcome.

I Was thinking it'd be nice if they made a copper one haha for us with the ft03/s copper.

 

Texas ace- sorry I've been out all night, and slammed tomorrow 7a-9p, unfortunately it would be until Wednesday. But I feel like TomE could do this justice. I, have just barely learned how to use my DMM Lol

Four more from aloft for me. And a bright green wrapped with nightwatch nsx4e.

Aloft could probably use better packaging, but just one ding. That’s not the flash, you see, That’s the wrap thinned out. Seems cosmetic. I got a 100 grand candy bar. That was nice.

I’ve ordered a couple of these battery holders to try and find a little more elegant charging solution until a real charger appears someday. My plan is to slice it in two and stretch it out, then mount it to a thin substrate. I’ve got a few ideas but will wait until I have them in hand to see what the plastic is like and which options might work best. A simple bar in the hollow of the center angled rib might be enough if I can add mounting holes elsewhere or maybe sink them in a routed pocket (or just frame the outside). I think this model is the one that has the slightly thinner contacts but it still looks robust enough to me. Seems like Blossom and Baimoo are the two major manufacturers of these holders – the latter offers some high-heat nylon but I think these are probably run of the mill ABS plastic. I’ve got ideas on a dummy plug for the charger, too. The contact tabs on these 26650 holders are raised a little from the bottom surface which is nice compared to the 18650 models I’m seeing. There is a single cell version as well but that looks like it might be harder to stabilize after splitting.

OK, got my Convoy M3-C extension today and it is great . It needed more handle length I always felt. Now it fits my hand much more comfortably. Same goes for the Astrolux EA01. My only gripe is that I have a 2 26650s with no home now. I will be extending all my lights as tubes become available. I need to buy another 26800 battery for the FT03 now.

I use the M3-C on turbo exclusively. Hopefully with more capacity now I will get one more walk before charging.

That 6800 mah rating was done at a 10 amp draw. You should see a real difference.
