    G&P G90 HP 1.2amps. Some people have a 0.8amp version though. (seems the only guaranteed way of getting this one is buying at digilightusa.com and when ordering, specify you are after the high efficiency lamp that draws 0.8A)

    Wolf-Eyes 9V D26 - 2A can't be right. The old 9V D26 and D36 drew 1.34A, and the new ones should draw about 20 percent less. Even the old lamps worked fine on AW's original 17500 protected cells.

    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.

    might consider changing the list a bit..

    list the 0.8A G90, as a DRB-9VHP(high efficiancy version), and other G90s as G&P G90

    My P90 draws 1.18 off of a pair of protected 17500s.

    maybe we can get a page dedicated to this on the CPF wiki?

    keep in mind, that the current draw of the 3 cell type lamps, is going to be different when driven by a pair of li-ions than it will on 3 primaries... The 2.7A draw I see on my P91, would probably be slighty less on primaries... and the reverse would probably be true for very low current lamps... However, this chart will be very usefull for getting "ballpark" figures on common lithium powered LAs.

    Once more numbers roll in, perhaps I should adjust any figures so they reflect current draw on rechargeable cells, since that is when the info is more crucial.....

    Still missing on this list the are Amps drawn by some of the 9V Surefires and the 12V Wolf-Eyes globes.
    Any more info or suggestions will be greatly appreciated
    How much current flows through your bulb?

    I don't know where it fits in on your list above but the Wolf-Eyes(with a long dash) 3.7v D26 is pulling 2.14 from AW's new 17670 battery in my SF 6P.

    Hope this helps in some way.

    Thanks again RowdyOne, I guess with that sort of current draw I better not run one of those on an 800mA R123...

    Nice list!!! Just goes to show even more how much butt the Surefire MN02 and Digilight DRB-9VHP lamps kick!

    Thanks InfidelCastro, yup, after using Quickbeam's database for seeing which lights
    are ballpark similar in output, it's worth knowing how much battery power all that takes.
    It's obvious that there is still development going on with incandescents, the MN02, Digilight's DRB-9VHP and possibly the new Pila lamps are proof of that.

    Surefire P60 isn't producing much more light then Strion if we take overall output ratings from flashlightreviews.com.

    With brand new 123s, measuring 3.2-3.3v unloaded:
    I get 1.13A for the SF P60 as listed.
    Also 1.23A for the TL3, and 1.32A with Wolf-Eyes 9v D26, both very close to the listed #s.
    I just checked those out of curiosity.
    Here's one to add.
    1.21A for the SF N2 LA.
