Can't say that i've had any torch batterys actually go hot before only the led but that's why you get huge heatsinks on the torches sure there is a few badly made torches out there so you have to be careful with what you get but even the dud ones can be modded into good torches,

But since the torch battery is connected direct to the led, its going to get very hot in no time ? Wonder if there are small round heat sinks to buy

Pre-2000 or so pennies? After that they are mild steel and plated.

I meant the LED will get hot... Never had a cell get hot from use in a torch, should have specified. You'll essentially be making the same exact light as my EDC, so there should be no worries about the cell getting hot, just the LED (from my experience, anyway).

I'm always waiting for things that's the trouble, getting impatient. Just for fun I went on ebay and bid and won 2 torches, both say they are cree leds.. lets see what they are when they come. You can buy Cree leds there, but goodness knows what they really are
