I really like the cut in pattern on the body.
I had considered buy a Ti Dawn for this pattern.

But there’s no clip you say… Wink

These things must run through the cells so how about a…

CRX TEC 18350 Titanium 1000mA Pocket Charger/ Spare cell carrier.

Made from a titanium pill capsule.
Ti-6Al-4V grade 5 titanium alloy
Copper lined body
S9 1000mA micro USB charging board
18350 cell compatible

Max charging current – 1000mA
Length – 51mm
Width – 22mm
Weight – 55g (with 18350 cell)

So for the last ti pill capsule I made a handy on the go 18350 cell pocket charger/ spare cell carrier.
With this I can carry a spare cell for the TEC lights and also have a charger on hand for when I’m out & about in a form factor not much larger than an 18350 cell.
Copper lined body with a 1A charging circuit in the head.
Red indicator light for charging, blue for charged.
The unit is potted and with the threaded head/ silicone o-ring it is fairly water resistant.

Stay cool

Those look great! Do you have a link for the pills that you can share? I don’t think I’ve ever seen a chain on a light before but that’s a nice looking chain, looks elegant on a host like that.

The usb port slot…did you drill-and-file that? I’m curious how titanium works with a file. I’ve only worked with it very little, just some grinding and wire brushing and a couple of drilled holes.

Such amazing work! My god, Just when I think I'm actually getting pretty decent at modding, I realize I'm a kindergartner here. Thank you for sharing, CRX !

These look great. Adapting non-flashlights into lights is always cool. And not new for you, either.

The ice red tritium glow fob on chain is some nice flashlight bling!!!

I’d rather use my flashlight around the house than turn on the lights.
