Q: How long can it last on maximum brightness?

Asked by hikaru168 on 2019-06-17 12:32:45

csiluk With my EBL 26650 5000mAh (inexpensive cell) I get about 30 seconds before it steps down. With my Shockli 26650 5500mAh cell I get about 1 minute 45 seconds, and with my Samsung 40T 21700 cell I get about 2 minutes 20 seconds, and yes, a 21700 easily fits in this light. Just go to the local hardware store and get some o rings that fit around the battery but also allow it to fit in the light without getting stuck. And using a Samsung 18650 30Q I get about 1 minute 35 seconds at 100%. All were tested at room temperature (about 20C) starting with a fully charged battery.

Q: How long can the battery last (approximately) on 100% brightness?

Eperbab At 3A drive current, a 3Ah (3000 mAh) battery would last around 1 hour. But the brightness level may step down due to thermal protection.
