    Just bought a copper Mechtorch light and it should be here Wednesday. I want to order a spare battery but cant find the specifics on the battery other than 16340. Flat top, button top, protected, unprotected?
    Anyone have any eye candy until mine arrives?
    Thanks,
    Steve

    You sure it's 16340? The one my search pulled up says it takes 18350s. Also the only cells they seem to sell on the light webpage are efest imr 18350 flat top 700mah.

    That the copper light on that page I'm guessing since it's the only one??

    Neo is correct, don't believe I've seen any other Mechtorch. They use an 18350 battery, not 16340, you will need flat top, high drain, unprotected Vapcell is a good one, I typically stay away from Efest if possible, it has been my experience Efest does not have the longevity of other brands. The following is where I usually buy them, unfortunately the 1100mAh is currently out of stock, the 700mAh are in stock and are good to go.

    My Mechtorch has been a good light, I however did mod it, changed it out to a Dragon Driver and Nichia 219 4k with amber secondaries.

    Brain fart on the size. Thanks for pointing that out.

    It's well over its pay class in results.
