Defiant mod questions?
« on: July 17, 2014, 08:20:40 AM »
Found a Defiant in the trailer we moved to put my house in...the 3C cell XM-L super thrower

Would this driver be good enough for either 3x26650's or 3x18650's w/ adapter to run it?

Or this

I kinda want to keep it 3A~ daily driver but want it to run on Li Ion instead of just plain ol' C cells

The first one linked I have used quite a few of. Mainly with 2 lithium batteries. There seems to be two or more different ones which I have received in the same order. Differences being slow mode change (maybe half a second), different components, some whine, and different outputs any where between 2.7 and 3 amps. Overall I still use them as they are better than anything else I've tried for this price and never had one fail, touch wood, yet.
When the big picture is to big, look for a point you can start at and build from there.

Ya know what...daggum it

C cell battery is 26.2 50, so 3 of em stacked are 150mm, 18650 stacked are 130mm...so pretty much would only need 2 18650's and not 3...duh *smacks forehead*

I was really expecting to have to put 3x18650's in there...not 2, and the nice thing...26650's x 2 and voila

herp derp

Might need a small spacer...but that shouldn't be that difficult (aka a 1" x 20mm long) wooden dowel rod, drilled down the middle, and some bolts and wire them between for electrical continuity and voila)

Ordered #1 on the list, w/ shipping $9.45, will let you know when it comes in and I mod my daughters Defiant

I have machined one tube out for 26650 batteries. They need about .65mm taken out.
