Very nice.

Are those just common horn switches peeking through?

I too like those eGo Mega DCs.

The right one has a horn switch.
The one next to it has a 1/4 inch long section of the pipe, slotted and formed as a button stop, and a microswitch, with a horn switch button. That was a little more work. Both the 26650 ones have a epoxy disk (bulkhead) just under the switch as a travel stop for the heavy cell and epoxy sealed penetrations for the wiring.

They really did come out quite nice.

I don't want to pay what they want for it, but I've been wanting to use a small piece of ~3/8" (1/4" seems too small) acrylic rod as a button for a snap action switch with a dim LED inside to make it glow on activation.

How about a 5mm or 10mm LED. Insulate the leads. Bond to lever.
Have you seen the "straw-hat" shape LEDs? Looks like a "button" to me
Or use a dead led and illuminate from the side with a live one.

Tek is planning on doing a DIY on the one he is making me. I hope it is easy enough to learn that even a blonde can do it.

Hey JJ
How about this for a button?

Leads are insulated from the lever.

Nope. Two LED leads stick out to the right, two switch lead (Com and N.O.) stick out the bottom.

Back to the Flashlights.
Shame I can't find this style any longer.

Here's a re-manufactured 510/eGo compatible, butt-switched, 18650 Flashlight Mod.

Takes about any 510/eGo compatible carto or atty you can throw at it and about any 65 to 68mm long battery (like 18650, 16650, 14650, 14670). Just not any combination stacked batteries.

They have something quite similar, and even cooler looking right now.
