    Do you guys think these are suitable for powering the 5000 Lumen 6D Maglite?

    They are probably the best known battery brand here in the UK.

    Hi Mick,

    You could use those, but alkaline are a very expensive way to power a light like this. They also can't drive the bulb to full power because they sag too much under a load. I suggest using NIMH rechargeable cells. I use Tenergy centura.

    Hi Vesture, I'm pretty sure those duracells are NIMH - or am I being mental?

    thanks

    No, it was me being mental. I apologize. Those D cells could work. Just be aware that they are proby a "dummy" shell with a smaller AA sized cell cased in the center. The capacity of only 3000ma would indicate that is likely the case (typical D nimh cells are 8,000ma capacity). How well they would carry the load is uncertain. Duracell makes a good AA cell. The prechared AA with a white ring on the top that are made in Japan are A++ grade. They also package a cell that is not great in the same wrapper, black ring on the top made in China. Whats in the center of that, who knows?

    I know you guys really get burned on import taxes in EU so I see why you want to find cells there. I must say after search ebay and amazon EU it's a very shallow battery pool. If you can manage a set of the Tengergy precharged cells you wont be sorry though.

    I hear you, but I am spending a lot on hosts and bulb upgrades so I don't want to shirk on the battery. If you are recommending Tenergy NIMH D-cells then that's what I'll try and get. Even if it means ordering from the USA.

    I'm going to be running the XHP-50 drop in on 6 Tenergy Centura NIMH cells. Any idea of the runtime on high?

    Thanks!
