How to fix Fenix TK10 TK11 gap

As you know, all the Fenix TK10, TK11 and TK11 R2 flashlight have little gap (about 1.5mm) between the tail cap and the body (the grip ring). This can be easily fixed using little bit of sanding skill. Here is how I did below:

I placed a sand paper on a flat surface (I used 400 grit), and I started to sand down the bottom body until I took off about 1 mm is best. Remember do not sand to the treading.

I’d rather get the 18650 cells instead. Now, I know where to get some 18650 rechargeable cells online.

So far I’ve got it for two days, and I must said I like it a lot. As an oriental guy with small hands, the flashlight just fit perfectly on my palm. I’ve done some researches and there are tons of flashlight brand like Surefire, EagleTac, Pelican, UltraFire, … etc. The only one catch my eye is this Fenix TK11, that’s why I got it.
