So after a lot of research, I cannot find what im looking for......

So for batteries I need 3 18650 in series for around 12 volts. I really would like a flashlight tube with the on/off on the back like a normal flashlight but instead of a flashlight head just having wires to power my camera and accessories......

The problem is the vendor I was buying my IR light from has not yanked all there parts from the website making it impossible to build what im looking for.

Anyone know of a flashlight tube battery pack thingy...lol???? 1 inch or 3omm diameter?
With technical help from Bruce and Clive, I built a battery ‘torpedo’ a few months ago for my Wardy WT1 75-3 thermal..... only needs just over 5v so 2 18650’s were fine. Don’t think I’ve ever seen a 3 18650 torch!?

I bought 2 of these to get the 2 switch caps
https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/New-UltraFir ... m1438.l264
That seller also sells the cheaper single battery 501 xenon torches which I’ll buy at some point to convert my spare 2 battery body.

Note they’re the older xenon torch with the spring battery contacts rather than the spring ‘piston’ solid contact....easier to convert. I replace one switch with a step down/step up transformer which fits in the plastic switch holder.

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/MP1584-Adjus ... 1438.l2649

This one is adjustable set at 5.6v, the WT1 runs on 5v but needs a slightly higher voltage on start-up, this shows 3 bars on the indicator. I also fitted another non-eBay, fixed 5.16v output into a spare T20 torch end cap (same thread) ......this shows one bar on the indicator. I bought a few of these fixed 5v boards and used the one with the highest o/p.

Hole punch punched a hole through the rubber button cover and fed a pre-wired 2.1 dc plug through and incorporated an led so I could tell if it was on or not.

A battery torpedo just seems like an easy way to power things. I would have thought that someone on the Internets have built a "torpedo battery", nope seen it here first! You guys on the NightVisionForumUK guys are pretty innovative!



The 3 battery flashlights are expensive, I could go broke figuring out which ones have the same threads on both ends!


I found the torch factory had extension from one to two batteries, I may be able to buy those separate and screw 3 together? I would still need to machine a custom head though, or destroy a pill......

:lol: I can’t lay claim to the Torpedo...... it was invented years ago by Marky610, he’s one of the forum’s venerable original members who had more than a hand in various projects setting us off on the night vision journey. :thumbup:

I’ve got 3 of those TR torch extensions here... you can screw together as many as you like but would still end up with a female thread to overcome at the front end. 2 extensions, tail cap and a head is 10” long, 3 extensions and tail cap is 9.5”. That’s a lot of connections that need to be good too.

And you’ve got to mount it alongside the illumination torch.

Another alternative might be an 1800mAh LiPo blue 12v battery? The Chinese ones are notorious for being possibly dodgy but a good UK supplier is elwirecraft...
https://elwirecraft.co.uk/product/12v-r ... river-led/

The 1800 is 4” x 2.5” x 0.5” so pretty slim... I cable tied on to one of the Armasight Drone Pro remote control rubber mounts so it would push on a pic rail. :thumbup:

You can buy a $1.58 one 18650 DIY box and $2.67 5v to 12v boost cable as shown bellow. Then use your own single 18650 battery for those EJ230 camera.

Found a cheap one piece C-m42 adapter, it holds the 100mm Zenit well. The threads are deep I think it will fit the 85mm Zenit IR lens.

Yes lovely job, I can see it now !

Nice build, did you get any problems with zero shift when using your lens as some do and some don’t ?

Kind regards
Update, there is some play in the Zenit 100mm focusing. I tried to take it apart and tighten it up but no luck. You might be able to with some serious mods. I have not shot any rounds yet still waiting for parts.....
