  • Nice AA light

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    A very nice AA light , well built , good finish , feels good in the hand . I was initially pleased with the light , though I was expecting better performance from the XP-G R5

    Cons:

    Output VS current = rather poor output for a XP-G R5 .

    WARNING , 14500 may kill the driver , I tried a 14500 and the driver is now damaged , AA's will no longer power up the light , needs a driver swap now .

    OtherThoughts:

    Nimh AA performance =

    High / 1.87A / 113Lumen

    Med / 1.07A / 61Lumen

    Low/ 0.47A / 17Lumen

    Bottomline:

    Its a nice AA light , good build quality , but output is nothing special on AA batteries , and if you go 14500 you may kill the driver , as I have .
