    The original 005 (serial number through 100) with the DownBoy converter is limited to primary batteries only. If you have one of the later models with the STFu controller in it, then yes, you can run any rechargeable battery that will fit.


    Cheers

    Yes, if it was upgraded by dat2zip to the new STFu converter board you can run any set of batteries you want. It is easy to tell that because it will have all the power-up modes.

    The voltage limit for the STFu is over 10V.

    Cheers

    It has the dat2zip upgrade with the new converter.
    Why would you want to run rechargeables in a light?
    There is a type of perfection that transcends the quest for lumens. Buying a $250 1-cell light for "lum factor" is like buying a $250 single malt Scotch for the alcohol content.

    Is there a way to tell which converter board is in one of these SPY005's?

    With the LuxIII Led you have the older board with a max. of 6V and if you have the newer SSC P4
    build in, you have the newer StFu board with a max. of 10V.
