    Hi, which is the best battery for this flashlight?
    I have never handled before with a flashlight that needs a 18650 battery...

    I recommend sku.20392.

    They are rechargeable, as a charger I recommend sku.13820 (EU plug) or sku.6105 (US plug).

    Watch out for those... True they are the best protected 18650 battery on DX But they are a tinny bit longer than regular and might not fit in this light... Mine did'nt fit in the 502d body... (sku.4314)

    Can anyone that have one of the 501b body confirme that SKU.20392 can fit without major mod... thanks

    My 501b with R2 could not fit sku20392 or rather the diameter is too big due to the protruding protection circuit.

    A solution to the problem might be removing the plastic "thing" at the top of the battery tube (Drop-in side), which acts as a mechanical reverse polarity protection. Just use some brute force, but pay attention not to damage the threading of te tube.
    I did this mod both on my 501B and 502b and I don't have any problem fitting "over-sized" batteries. (But two protected 16340 still do not fit)

    I have used sku 20392 in both 501b and 502b without any problems,the fit is tighter in 502b but IMHO 20392 are the best 18650s in DX just shy from IMR which are the best batts I know
