Middle Battery Cap, what's its purpose?
So, I received the SB from another place last week. I thought, from the pictures, that the middle sized ?battery? cap would be for 18500 batteries as nothing was mentioned in any description. Unfortunately, the cap is too long for 18500's by a couple of mm. So, my question is - What is the supposed purpose of the middle length cap if it's not for 18500 set ups? Am I missing something here?

There's at least a 2-3mm gap with plenty of battery rattle with a 18500.

18400 would extend the gap by 12-13mm.

18 = diameter
40 = length
0 = round

NO. There are, of course, a couple that say they are on the label, but no.

I've been using AWT 18500, 1200MAH 18A for years but I don't build low, only 0.5ohm for this battery.

An 18550 would take up the slack hey! Not sure if the tube was meant specifically to be used with an 18550 though?
