You light-loving fanatics have been asking for this and finally we worked it out and had a limited number made. This 18650 body will work with ALL Quarks! The clip is also removable and the body is reversible as well.
The design was an absolute challenge since the 18650 cell is not much smaller than the Q123-2 body. The only way to do it was to have the body unscrew into two pieces. The slot for the o-rings was too deep (smaller than the 18650 cell).
We had to make a design decision of whether to have the separating point a bulge in the body or put it behind or in front of the body. We chose the latter because it kept the nice simple lines of the quark. The downside is that it's a bit longer but that's OK, these quarks are quite compact anyway
Anyway, there is a limited number of these and depending how well they do we may or many not make another run. So if 18650's is a must have, grab one quick.
I have a prototype in hand but it's not photo-worthy and it's far from the final design. So I'll just show you the renderings. Don't worry the bodies have already been produced and they are on their way to me

Yes, it's still pre-order status so it shows out-of-stock when checking out. These still plenty from the first batch. They arrived this morning so we'll be shipping them shortly after we process the incoming shipment.
Here are some quick pictures I snapped to hold you guys over
