where do you buy the metal reflector and glass replacement? Can you change 2 C cell batteries the same way?

thanks for the info

metal reflector was purchased from someone on CP ( candlepower)forms, 2 C battery would not have enough voltage.

I should show this to my husband. He's been thinking about buying a million candlepower spotlight. He needs something nice and bright, this might do the trick.
For all of these parts, the holder is available from FiveMega on candlepowerforums.com
Direct link to order thread: 3AA, 6AA, 9AA & 12AA Fivemega battery holders - CandlePowerForums
He also offers the ROP bulbs, reflector (Bi-Focal), and Borofloat lens required for this mod.

Also, if you had done your research, you would know that rechargeable batteries are only 1.2 volts, so you are only really getting about 7.2 volts our of that battery pack.

If you had done YOUR research, you would know that 7.2Vdc is still greater than 3Vdc, so it doesn't really matter, the voltage output is still greater. Idea: Use 3V rechargeable batteries (usually for digital cameras), they are slightly smaller but then you could mod the flashlight so it could carry xenon headlight bulbs. Probably won't last long but it would be very bright.
