2x-run-time DiNotte (Version-1)
I have a DiNotte 5W that I'll be using on brevets, I like the beam but want to extend its "burning" time and decrease the number of battery-replacement stops needed.
I was going to buy some Lithium batteries so at the same time I ordered two battery holders with cable leads from batteryspace.com ($0.95 each) and also bought a 9V Battery Snap connector from radio Shack (Model 270-324, $1.95 shown here with the heat-shrink tubing on it) I had some heat-shrink tubing laying around but that can also be purchased for either place. I could have used a 4 cell holder for larger batteries (C or D size) but I don't have a use for larger batteries around the house and I can halve the batteries weight by disposing the used batteries as I go. But tha's me :)
