    Default Wiki spreadsheets now easier to manage

    WikiCalc, an open-source Wiki spreadsheet plug-in, should make collaborations like these easier.
    My lights, all AA, neutral or warm: 3 Fenix TK20s; 2 Malkoff M30WFs; 2 Shiningbeam Romisens (5A); Dereelight XP-G R5 (close enough); UK 4AA incan.

    Regarding the Streamlight TL3. Its runs on 9 volts or two LiIon cells. You should make that (2) 17500's. Reports are that protected will work with two clicks, and unprotected with 1 click. Dukester has reported on his success with 17500's in the TL3 incan.

    Cool Re: Announcing the flashlight/rechargeable battery compatibility chart.

    my pm6 3w works with 3.7v 750mah r123s. About the same output, maybe a little more.... it gets a little warm after a while, but not hot.

    If somone wants to add:
    Ultrafire 1AA light (from china) 1W type. is really only for alkalines, a Lithium primary at 1.7V pumps up the ultrafire to a 1.5W output, and increases the heat.
    so Alkines for long life, and long runs, lithium for Short HOT intermittant use, that may eventually fry it.
    Lithium-ion 3.6v WILL fry it quickly.

    Fenix 1AA L1T 3w. will take about anything, on its High position.
    alkalines it runs very low , almost to low,
    lithiums it runs great, and with its 2 levels is a good matchup, but never really achieved a full 3W , which is good because it would get hot.
    with Li-Ion it gets to about 2-2.5W with 4V, as high as about 3.5W with 4.30V which is a bit hot for how small and heat dissapating the light is.
    EDIT:make that way to hot . good for intermittant short term use.

    2 lights look the same, the light output can be made similar, but thier curcuits are completly different. but both curcuits VARY lots depending on the voltage (battery).
    if i compared these cheap curcuits to a GEORGE curcuit, its all the differance in the world, Georges N-flex thing was very very stable at its usable voltages.

    Coast 1AA David 15.
    alkalines ok
    lithium good, mabey a bit higher than it intended to run, but it needs em.
    Li-Ion NO way, would jack it up to like 2Amps, enough to blow it out in a few hours of running.

    Hey all,

    Not sure if this chart is still considered "active," but I took a look and it's been hit by spammers. I would have rolled it back to a real version, but didn't want to step on any toes... Any thoughts?

    seems to be dead link at the moment.. bummer all that work got flushed somehow....

    maybe we could resurrect it in a thread on CPF and put it in the "threads of interest" again.... not sure what the best solution to this is..

    Hello all. CPF has been turning up in my search results quite a lot, and I've found a reason to post so I thought I'd register.

    Nice forum this is, good info it has.

    On looking at this thread I saw how badly the linked CPF Wiki site has been vandalized by !*#&$#* no good son's of *#$&*##&'s (pardon my French), and consequently has been locked .

    I don't know who holds the keys to the Wiki (FlashInThePan?), but maybe we can recover some info on the locked pages... If we go back far enough in the history, I think we can still get to the lost information. For example, here is a recovered version of the battery compatibility page from before it got destroyed. Maybe somebody can put it back? It should be possible to do the same for the other lost pages too:

    Code:
    A common question at CPF is: "will my flashlight work with rechargeable batteries?"  Rechargeables are great; they provide guilt-free lumens by letting you run your flashlight without the expense of primaries (non-rechargeables).  However, not all flashlights are compatible with rechargeables.  The goal of this chart is to provide a single resource where CPFers can share their knowledge about which flashlights are compatible with which rechargeables.
    
    Generally speaking, LEDs are more forgiving than incandescents.  (Incans that use multiple CR123s have a notoriously bad track record.)  That said, CPFers have tested a number of different lights (LED and incan alike) with rechargeables - and many work.
    
    If you've tested a flashlight with rechargeables, please add it to this chart!  Even if your tests show that the light doesn't work, that's information we need to know!  (If you don't see a flashlight listed, that doesn't mean that it doesn't work - just that it hasn't yet been tested or added).  This chart is a community effort - it wouldn't exist without the help of CPFers.
    
    Please include at least these basics for each review: flashlight manufacturer and model, whether it works with rechargeables (and has any special requirements), and most importantly the SOURCE of your knowledge so that our users can make an informed decision and read more detailed information if they'd like.  If the source is a CPF discussion thread please link to that thread.  If it's personal use, please include your CPF name.  Folks, let's also try to keep the entries in alphabetical order.
    
    ''Disclaimer'': Please understand that you're using this chart at your own risk.  It reflects the experiences of others and is not a guarantee that rechargeables will work with your particular flashlight.  In fact, your particular flashlight might fail to work with the very same batteries.  It might explode.  It might change color.  It might bark angrily at you.  We just don't know, and we can't guarantee anything.  Because this chart is a collective effort, neither the authors, CPF, nor the Wiki administrators will be held responsible for the results of your usage.  In fact, all of those entities expressly disclaim any warranties.
    
    WARNING: There is apparently a danger in using rechargeables with magnets:

    | Golston 7W New Type (from QCG)
    | Does not actually say Golston on it but identical to a friend's one which does. Designed for RCR123 so a bit dim with primaries. Comfortably brighter than an Orb Raw on high with RCR, slightly dimmer (and a lot greener) with primaries. Works very nicely with a 17670 from a defunct laptop. Lower light output obviously, but a lot lower heat output too. With 2 RCR123's it gets too hot for comfortable holding within 30 mins. Mine has just smoked its resistor - it smells truly vile and I have a bad cold. Perhaps best not used with RCR123 cells. Mine had a 1.9 ohm resistor - they seem to be shipping with 3.4-3.8 ohm resistors now - these should be OK with 2 rechargeables.

    | Wolf-Eyes LRB-168B, MicroFire 168B, Pila 168S. The Pila 600S is a "press fit," and + nipple may need a magnet to make contact.  If you put the KL4 head on an E1 body (TW4), you can use any of the 3.7V R-CR123 cells.

    | SureFire P91 xenon lamp assembly (~2.4-2.8A)
    | 2 x Wolf Eyes 150B/150A/168B/168A cells (1 click). Note that 2 x AW's original 17500, 18500, or 17670 protected cells will NOT light it. (Also note that if the P91 is used in a Wolf Eyes body, the head can't screw down completely.) edit: using cells below 1300mah capacity is not advised for this high drain rate lamp(for safety concerns). the *new* AW 17670 will light this lamp on the first click every time with no safety issues. Unfortunately, 2 of Aw's 17670 did not light up my P91 on the first click. But it will light it up with two rapid clicks.(Edited by a99raptors)

    | SureFire U2
    | Protected 18650.  Note that not all versions of the U2 are compatible; the 18650 will likely fit in the older models as-is, while intermediate versions have a "sleeve" inside the tube that needs to be removed for the batteries to fit. In latest production models the inner diameter of the body is smaller and 18650 won´t fit anymore ! Pila 600s works if inserted via the bezel end---sleeve may need to be removed on newer U2 models. Output is the same as with CR123As.

    Well, is there any hope of seeing the chart again?

    Or, does anyone know of any similar links to compatabilities of flashlight and batteries?


    Hmm, just checkin.

    The latest page before vandalism that I can find is this page but I cannot revert the main page to this information as it has been locked. And the Protected Page information that it directs you to for information has also been vandalized.
    They could have locked the page... but why lock it with only a message about vandals? Perhaps they did not know how to revert it back to a non vandalized version ?

    Here's one fairly extensive Pila battery compatibility table hank:

    And here's the forum thread that got me to the Pila table:

    Here's an older post by greenLED that contains a link to what is probably the forum thread on Pila battery compatibility, but the link is invalid now:

    Here's the invalid link contained in greenLED's post; I couldn't decipher it, but perhaps someone else can:

    I'm building a new one in a thread (link in sig).... I'll keep working on it as I have time, I'm technically on vacation out of state right now, so I'll get back to that when I am home and have my dual monitor setup in front of me!
