Hello folks!
I've recently been looking around for a 2x26650 host, as I've been planning on making a build with a NUBM06, 08, or 44 (haven't decided yet.) However, I already have two S4X hosts, and definitely don't need another. I also don't like the look of maglite flashlights - so it seems likely that I'll go with 26650s. Unfortunately, I don't know of many places to get a host for 2x26650. Suggestions?

Hi Red,
I think Mathew sold the entire lot of all his sinks for 125.00 last month or so. It consisted on a multitude of different sinks And all the XM900 sinks were press fit for 9mm ..

@ Sta,
go with a 2-D cell mag light build for those big diodes and they take two 32650's monsters . i built them and the are awesome . i will be building another with an 08 and a 44. i sold one that i built with a 47...

Rich:)

Hi Sta,

All my high powered units use the MX-900 and as RedC said they're easy and are good quality.

Thanks for the link Red.

I've got a brand new MS-SSW from sinner that I've been holding onto for something special. If I don't get around to using it, I'll let you know as it would fit this bill perfectly. I've had it wrapped up for a couple of years and just looked at it again. Just like the day I got it.

I would love to have it, if you're ever willing to sell it! Of course, if you do end up selling it to me, I'll credit you in the description of the video I make with it. :)

I'll keep you in mind, Sta. Every so often i think about selling it, but then I realize, you can't get them any longer.

Where did you get them? As far as I know sinner hasn't made any new hosts for awhile. This one looks different from the one I have. Is it a knock off? Would like to know where one can get new sinner hosts these days.

Why not do 2x 18650? Some 2x 18650 will fit 26650 also.

With the shortage of available boost drivers for our needs we will have to all start running linear drivers in hosts that have room to fit 2 cells and maybe some larger homemade drivers =/ wish those sxd wouldn't go poof.


I'm working on talking to a few people about heatsinks for these.. I know they've probably been done before but I'm gonna see what price I can get them for.

These must have been some of the last to go from his inventory. I didn't think any sinner hosts were still available.
