Unless a single-26650 light comes along that is so much better than any 18650 light that I have, I don't want to mess with a new charger and new battery type.

I plan on using my Xtar WP2 for my 26650s, have heard that it works.

Yes Xtar WP2 works just fine with King Kongs for example, one at a time Smile

If not, put little solder on + side of charger.

I have some 4sevens and Elektro Lumens lights that take 26650's...X10, S12 and Big Brute.

The power/run time advantages in the X10/S12 lights is great.  I can't imagine a BB with less reserve capacity, so an 18650 in there would drain too quickly to be practical, even the 26650's are drained low enough to swap out in ~ 20-25 minutes. 

So I have ~ dozen 26650's in rotation.

Interesting, so only about a quarter of the folks here have 26650 batteries.

Rats, finally sold my 2010 509hp Mustang...now I can buy more lights!

Sold the red one too! Now guess what I drive, doing my penance for 500 hp commuters...

I would suggest closer to 50 % if you add the top and bottom rows together?

I have 3 26650 flash lights and i have king kongs and have been testing a trustfire 26650 that tested well 4500 mAh.

I have ordered 3 more and sold 3 brand new king kongs i had sitting there doing nothing and i use battery spacers from IO in some of my 26650 lights to use my 18650 batteries.

I have chargers all over the place and I like that I can charge the batteries I use (primarily 14500s and 18650s, with some 16340s and 18350s thrown in for good measure) whenever I need to or feel like it. I really don't want to buy a dozen new chargers when the 18650s and 14500s I have work just fine for what I'm using them for.

Thats why i use a hobby charger, one size fits all kind of thing, plus i use 18650 to 26650 battery spacers they cost under $2.

Right now I got FIVE 26650 flashlights. Up until yesterday, I only had TWO Keygos 26650 batteries. Two Trustfire 26650 batteries arrived yesterday, with 2 more on the way. That will make SIX 26650 batteries and five 26650 lights. I ain't buying no more dam lights, no more!! Wink

Which 26650's do you have?

Thr INR's(King Kongs) lasted for 50 minutes to 50% in the BB, according to the review.

The reason I ask is because because I was considering the BB, only If I could get longer than 20-25 min. run time.

(BTW What's you opinion on the BB vs X10/12) if possible PM so as not to hijack the thread. Thanks

 

Yes, I own 4sevens 4000mah 26650.

I picked up some IMR 26650's and a 4 Seven's charger a few months ago with intentions of building an SST-90 2D Mag, but that project has sort of stalled out.
