Why hello, everyone! I need to make some room for some new hosts so I figured why not sell off someone of my older ones!

What I have here are a few hosts which contain:
One XM-L2 aluminum host
One Polished aluminum heatsink for a 12mm module with setscrew
One battery contact board contain battery spring
One positive and one negative wire going from contact board to your module (module not included unless asked)
One green strap

These hosts are module ready, you just need a diode pressed module, and a corresponding driver for said diode. Solder the wires to the correct driver solder pads, slide you module in the heatsink, set the set screw, and you're ready to add batteries!
For higher powered builds that require extra cooling of the driver, there is a spot on the pill that holds a driver perfectly with thermally conductive adhesive.

$40 Shipped CONUS
If you would like to buy more than one, PM me, and we'll figure up a price! :) Thanks

Thank you, Bowtie Guy! They are very nice and unique hosts! Very strong too! The fins are also a plus for heatsinking too. :D

Ricker, these are 2x 26650 battery hosts if i'm correct?
I think you are GSS. I've got a couple of RT builds in ones that look just like that. As Life said, they do make great builds.

Best wishes with your sales Ricker. :)

Don't you have those hosts in a adjustable build of some type from a older member, I think Rick Trent?

Those are good sturdy hosts, I have used a lot of them. :gj:

Yours are nicer looking than these, mine are kind of brown, but yours are nice and bright.

---EDIT---
They take 2 x 26650 or 2 x 18650 with the plastic sleeves, I'm sure they come with the sleeves and if for some reason you ever need sleeves they are dirt cheap, here's 2 for 99 cents with free shipping. How can the Chinese mail stuff this cheap....oh yes, in a shipping container with a ton of other stuff.

Great looking hosts at a reasonable price. If I wasn't already behind in my building, I'd order some of these from you, Ricker. Always got great deals from you. Good luck with your sale, buddy.

You are correct. Actually I have quite a few of RT's ( Rick Trent) builds in these host and a couple of dual diodes builds in them also from him. As stated they make very good hosts. Lots of heat sink mass so you can get a sizable duty cycle out of the more powerful diodes.

I use both (2) 18650's with a sleeve or (2) 26650's depending on how many I'm firing up at once.

Like everyone said, these are great hosts.
Bob, I still drool over your collection of these buddy.
Quick question for Ricker, would you be willing to sell me two hosts to Australia or is it strictly Conus?

RB, I would gladly work with you for two hosts to down under sir! Thank you all so much I appreciate it! I'd quote you all but I hate using my mobile for that, you're all awesome! Yes GSS, 26650 or 18650, RC explained it the best.
