The Modlite light 18650 Body is designed as a direct replacement body for Surefire® Scout Light M600DF weapon lights and KE2-DF heads. It will also fit all Modlite light heads.

The Modlite 18650 Light Body is compatible with Surefire® z68, Modlite TCC tailcaps along with Surefire UE and DS00 tail caps. It will also fit in any aftermarket Scout mount, as it retains the mounting holes and square lug interface on the underside of the light body.

This light body accepts 18650 cells only. Lithium CR123 cells are not supported and if used will cause the cells to heat up and possibly explode or catch fire. We recommend the KeepPower high drain 3500mAh cells which can be found here. Runtime is about 75-80 minutes with these cells.

The Modlite 18650 light body is NOT compatible with the Surefire older Scout light heads. Also please note this item is just a light body and it is not a complete light.

You can also purchase the PLH or OKW heads separately for your Modlite or Surefire M600DF Bodies. The Modlite 18350 and 18650 bodies work with all Surefire Scout tape switches, tailcaps and mounts.

    Fast shipping and great customer service. Easy switching back and forth between hand held and weapon mounted.

  2. Chee (verified owner)

    Awesome modlight body to match a modlight head, love how it is compatible with all of the surefire scout accessories

  3. mac.mosher (verified owner)

    Solid light body, compatible with surefire tailcaps. Lightweight and sturdy.

  4. Jacob Brandon (verified owner)

    Light weight and built like a tank. Big fan! Easy to switch parts around as well.

  5. Daniel H (verified owner)

    Works perfectly with the Surefire M600DF and Modlite heads. Functionally identical to the Surefire body, but a bit lighter weight, and better looking.

  6. johnkim.tfa (verified owner)

    Body is well machined and high quality. Buy with confidence. Love how the body is compatible with surefire as well. Gives you more options!

  7. Colton Omstead (verified owner)

    Bought a modlite head so I needed the body and it was actually way lighter then I expected and built really solid. Also fast shipping from big tex is always a plus.

  8. Andrew Arcangel (verified owner)

    Build quality is top notch. Built like a tank but doesn’t carry the weight of one.

  9. mikebray69 (verified owner)

    Very nice light, highly recommend!

  10. jarbob116 (verified owner)

    Firstly, fast shipping and great customer service. Secondly the Modlite body is sturdy and perfect for weapon mounting. I totally recommend it.

  11. a.meade2652 (verified owner)

    Great piece if you have a spare light head laying around or want to up your short body 18350 to an 18650 sized light. Well constructed as all Modlite things are.

  12. ronguay60 (verified owner)

    The perfect size for a powerful torch! This add on to my handheld package allows me to leave this body mounted on my weapon and use the head on my handheld! I didn’t want to buy 2 to have a complete light mounted sitting in a safe for weeks on end, so this solved that dilemma! I’d recommend everyone wanting either weapon or handheld to just buy the body and appropriate tail cap for your application! Big Tex always comes through with affordable pricing, fast shipping and amazing customer service

    The 18650 bodies are great. They work with existing scout mounts which means if you have been on the scout bandwagon for a few years, you’ve probably got several laying around. 18650 batteries provide a big increase to output and run time and I highly recommend switching.

  14. Devin Shunia (verified owner)

    Strong and lightweight, pairs well with a modlite head!

  15. mbjones32 (verified owner)

    Great light body from ModLite. It seems very sturdy, the fit and finish are excellent, and it fit my bobro mount perfectly. Paired it with an OKW head and I love it.

  16. Skellytor (verified owner)

    paired with plhv2 I couldnt be any happier. Feels like a tank
