    I second the El34 suggestion and add another one.

    I get silicone wire from hobbyking.com. Also good for chargers and battery packs ect.
    I use servo wire for internal wiring.

    Just a quick bit of praise for ebay seller "boltmeup". They've got a good selection of metric SS bolts, nuts, grub screws, etc. They're UK based, but I think they ship internationally. All that's not the reason I'm writing this, though. There was a delivery mixup on a recent order, and they bent over backwards to make things right for me... that's the kind of service I really appreciate.
    The study du jour: can one's reputation be artificially inflated by simply putting a request for rep in one's sig?

    I forgot how much fun DigiKey is. I could spend a paycheck in there. And, their first class USPS shipping is cheeeeep....

    Just ordered some small project boxes with flanges to try and DIY an in-line switch.

    1.378" L x 1.378" W (35.00mm x 35.00mm)

    Height 0.787" (19.99mm): 1551MFLBK Hammond Manufacturing | HM1058-ND | DigiKey

    Height 0.591" (15.01mm): 1551NFLBK Hammond Manufacturing | HM1057-ND | DigiKey

    EDIT: I built an in-line switch using one of these housings and I really liked how it turned out. More info: CatEye Double Shot XM-L (U2-1C) Upgrade

    Alternatives for waterproof connector cables (cheap with free shipping, at least in the U.S.):

    Amazon.com: Male Female Plug 2 Pin LED Waterproof Connector Cable Black: Electronics

    If you want something for a pack to be charged with a balance tap?

    Amazon.com: Gino LED Light Strips Male Female 3 Pin Waterproof Connector Cable Black: Electronics

    There are others in white, with 4 pins, etc.

    edit: I just noticed they ship from Hong Kong, so probably free shipping and a long wait for everyone!

    edit 2: I ordered some. They are 22 AWG. The leads are about 6" long.

    Boxes

    I was recently informed about this company:

    ZERO Manufacturing, Inc. - Deep Drawn Enclosures

    their product of interest is drawn aluminum cases of many, many different sizes and wall thicknesses. I have no idea if these are suitable for bike lights, but they can be purchased with matching covers. Could be worth a look.

    Good XML optic:

    Good bright spot and some useful spill.

    If the link gets removed, look for LED-DNA and 10 degree "reflector"

    5PCS x 10 Degree 21mm Reflector Collimator LED Lens For Cree XML XM-L LED | eBay

    EDIT- The vendors do have more of these if you contact them, even though the listing seems to have ended.

    Yes, just be careful with the cut-off voltage. I use PCBs from tchwarehouse-au and hunk_lee ebayers with li-ions and li-pos. 2s2p protection is the same as 2s1p or 2sXp because of the parallel cells connection and how it works.
