Recommended diode for this?
Also any good hosts for this that fits 2x 18350?

Is it possible to run with 1x18650 with a boost drive?

I have a 2w already but seems to run out of juice so quickly using 2x 16340

Altoids tin might work for a host

I have a Convoy S11 I got from Lifetime17 which takes 2 x 26350 cells and they hold up longer than 16340 or 18350 as does the nice copper heat sink Rich puts in the S11 and the S11 is a very nice quality housing.




If you want a more compact host ask Lifetime17 for a S2+ and you can use 2 x 18350 rather than 2 x 16340 cells.

Oh nice clean af. mine looked like trash compared to that. What's the duty cycle on that though?
To be safe I'd say around 10 seconds... The smaller you go the less run-time you'll get.
