has anyone seen c-cell lithium batteries? I haven't.

Also, there are AA to C cell adaptors (for sale on CPF). Has anyone tried to use them with AA lithium batteries in a high powered laser?? Any thoughts on this??

Actually in CPF, AW sells Li-Ion C Cells. Not sure if thats the one you're looking for though.

the ones I was thinking of would just bulk up the AA to C (battery augmentation?? maybe I should ask a plastic surgeon) I would only be using 2 cells at any given time.

That's a question for Justin to answer but at a good guess our Aries's will just kick some serious butt with e2's :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek:

TL - I'm glad you understand what I'm getting at.  
Power should go up but run-time will drop.

Looks like the UK ones you linked should do the same thing

I think you could be right about the runtime for the size off AA's but hey it's all about the kick especially if your on a long distance balloon marathon (ie 30-50 balloons) :cool: :cool: :cool: :cool: :cool:

Not sure how well its regulated, but the Aries SHOULD be regulated enough that the E2 batts have next to no effect on output. You can increase your lifetime a good bit though by putting a few sets of two in parallel if you get the chance.

anyone know why they just don't make c-cell lithuim e2's??? ::)

You're probably right about the regulation (I hope not), but I've seen my Aries 225 top out over 280mW with fresh alkaline batteries. Batteries do have a profound impact on its output.

I think AW's Li-Ion cells are higher voltage and a bit longer. I'm not going to try that one yet since I am sill under warranty and don't want to mess too much with a good thing. Regarding the length issue - the Aries has very fine threads on the tailcap and a battery just a bit too long means it won't thread properly.
