I've already tried those batteries, and they're too big :(

Waiting to see if I can source some freebie CR2's . . they are photo lithium so should last well and 27.1mm long so 2 of them may fit the space..

As I already mentioned, running at 6V could shorten the LED life (or blow it instantly but it's not that unusual to run LED's a little hot to get more performance from them - and it may be possible to add a higher rated resistor to the circuit (I haven't looked))

Damn, suppose I can use 'em to somehow replace the dead batteries in my wifes DusterBuster. She's been moping about like the dog has died and the Hoover replacement I bought to cheer her up is just not up to scratch, or so I'm told. :roll:

They are the same. A friend ordered the 5w Cree +rear from the original link on this thread and apart from the bezel colour it's identical to my 7w one. Both are Saik SA-8.

I've just replaced the crappy batteries in mine and thought I'd gone blind.
