    Lightbulb The most discussed flashlights of the past 12 months

    "?"-column: q = questionable. kreis105 suggestion has not been 100% fully adopted in the present firmware version 1.05, hmm. therefore suggesting again as kreis106 suggestion for FW1.06.

    here are my test results, learning as i am typing. once i've finished writing this post, i'll and you'll learn if i got the same prob as the op, so let's see:

    #1 : [01]
    spv: "CYCLE 1: 674mAh / CYCLE 2: 674mAh / Capacity: 675mAh"
    "CYCLE 1: -2.46Wh / CYCLE 2: -2.46Wh / Energy: -2.466Wh" (lil bug, all three numbers should be displayed with 3 decimals)
    tov: "mah: 675"


    dex: (D) > C > D > C > D = (D) > 667mAh > -674mAh > 668mAh > -674mAh (and 8mins later in the log: -675mAh wth)
    dex: (D) > C > D > C > D = (D) > 2.618Wh > -2.468Wh > 2.625Wh > -2.466Wh

    perfect energy result. dex calculated energy is the same as mc3k (and as excel). am not sure why the capacity counter went up by 1mAh after the program had finished. will investigate. actually, at the time of writing tov now shows 677mAh

    #4 : [01]
    spv: "CYCLE 1: 438mAh / CYCLE 2: 427mAh / Capacity: 427mAh"
    "CYCLE 1: -1.53Wh / CYCLE 2: -1.49Wh / Energy: -1.491Wh" (lil bug, all three numbers should be displayed with 3 decimals)
    tov: "mah: 427"


    (D) > C > D > C > D = (D) > 476mAh > -438mAh > 451mAh > -427mAh (and 60mins+ later in the log: -427mAh, unchanged)
    (D) > C > D > C > D = (D) > 1.918Wh > -1.538Wh > 1.825Wh > -1.492Wh

    i'll call this also a perfect energy result. The 0.001Wh difference comes from differing numerics in coding (integer, float, double, round). the lcd shows as expected 427mAh, the result of the final Discharge routine, and even hours later the lcd still shows correctly 427mAh.

    I agree I have the EC1 and it is pretty awesome! Was thinking about getting the EA2 or maybe wait for EC2.

    This list must of took a lot of time.

    Some of the ones on the list like the Q50 don't actually exist.

    Any kind of reply is counted? Regardless of topic? ( negative or positive / praises or complaints )
