    I measured the current draw of this light as well as the Lumintop Worm, and Lumintop Copper Tool. I found that all three light drew close to the same current on high, but the Maratac draws about 8% more than the worm on Medium. I would expect about 8% shorter run time.

    I recall running a test on the Maratac also and found the data:
    On medium mode I found the Maratac to start dimming around 3 hours 40 minutes, while the Worm starts dimming right at 4 hours. Looks closer to 9% shorter.

    91 lumens for 40 minutes is much more in line with what I expected. Thanks for the graph.

    If anybody has one of these things, an Android device and a desire to make graphs without having to take manual readings every few minutes, there's an app for that.

    you're welcome

    standard eneloops. I have the white ones and some green ones that I found in the recycled battery pile . . . They seem to work just as well as the white ones I purchased. I don't recall which ones I used for my test, but I do recall I did it twice and go the same result twice. The test I ran twice was to run the worm and Maratac both powered by eneloops (mixture if whites and greens) on medium until I could observe with my eyes a dimming of light. I don't have a meter, but I will likely investigate the app mentioned above for future tests. ..

    The tint of the E01 is blueish.
