Pitlamp 2-tone 

The regulated power settings levels for modules are given in mA. To determine the approximate regulated duration of light on your battery arrangement at a given power setting, simply divide the mAh capacity of your cell pack by the mA power draw at a given setting. For example, using 2100mAh NiMh low self discharge AA batteries at a power setting of 350mA will give a regulated duration in the region of 5-6 hours.

 

Suitable for lamps that run from 3.0 volts to 6.0 volts (maximum), typically a 3 or 4 cell Nimh battery configuration, or parallel wired 3.7 li-ion cells. This includes Speleo Technics Headlites and FX3s, and lead acid mining lamps. Not suitable for 2.4v 2 series cell lamps such as FX2, 5 cell 6v+ lamps such as FX5, or series wired li-ion packs of 7.4v or higher.
