    So I shot an email out to surefire to see what the LED Module was rated at to see if I could use rechargeable batteries.

    Anyone have an experience with the E2DL and rechargeable batteries?

    I want to use rechargeables since its a lot cheaper than using the regular batteries. My question is only to see if the module is rated high enough to allow use of rechargeables.

    Funny because most LED's get more lumens out of rechargeables :hsugh:

    :dunno: But yea keep comparing reviews that make no sense, thats like comparing two CR123A to a AA battery

    Could read every review on there and read that rechrablges get more light output :wavey:

    2x 16340 750mAh AW Protected
    Low Spot 1930 Lux
    Low Spill 55 Lux
    High Spot 3900 Lux
    High Spill 113 Lux
    2x CR123 1500mAh e²
    Low Spot 377 Lux
    Low Spill 11 Lux
    High Spot 2930 Lux
    High Spill 85 Lux

    On a side note you need to read about ohms law more

    I see a difference when comparing rechargeable vs regular batteries.

    3.7v x 2 > 3.0v x 2

    Most rechargeables I've seen are a pain in the ass, even with with a 'quick charge' feature.

    If you are a member of CPF, you can get 123's from Battery Station for $1 each, they work fine. I have been putting them in my Surefires for years, no problems yet.

    :ugh:

    Or maybe its because P=E*I therefore if you increase voltage more than amps you get more watts out than just increasing amps as amps will always be the same load no matter how many 1600mah batteries you add up the circut will only have 1600mah even you put in 20batteries.

    So two rechargeable CR123A (Which have always been 3.7volts fyi) make 7.2volts and therefore you need alot less amperage to make your flashlight run. As the end result you care about to make the flashlight brighter is watts.

    And as long as the LED is rated to withstand the voltage it doesnt matter, its watts that will kill it

    I just find it funny no matter how many times someone tells you different you will go post the same bullshit in another thread
