    I think I've asked this before, but can't find the responses?

    1. What's the stock runtime of a fully charged MC?
    2. What's the stock runtime of a fully chaged MC with the WA01160?
    3. The output of a stock MC is comparable to ______?
    4. The output of a MC with 1160 is comparable to _______?

    TIN,

    1. I dunno. I swapped the bulb with WA01160 right away. But the manual sez 1.5 - 2 hours.
    2. I measured this 3 times. Average out to be 35 minutes full bright white light output. At 38 minutes it started to yellow but still a lot of output. At 40 minutes it's so dim and yellow-orange as to be useless.
    3. Stock MC brightness is about 50% brighter than a surge.
    4. Output of MC with 1160... I am left speechless. I have heretofore not owned any torch as bright as this one.

    Interesting note: I had thick fog tonight and took the MC w/1160 out for a walk. It was like holding a very long bright light sabre. The fog made for a very cool effect. Like a laser except bright bright bright.

    Oh the output of this MC w/1160 combo is about 20 watts and 456 lumens which I looked up is equivalent to a 40 watt A-type bulb. If you shine the spot on the back of your hand about 6 inches away, you'd feel intense burning, I couldn't hold it in a single spot for long!

    Nascar, there is no easy mod like the 01160/MC for output; it's the King. "Easy" meaning: drop in bulb replacement, recharges internally (no removing AA's, etc), uses all stock components that come with MC. You can add higher capacity batteries for increased runtime (35/stock, 50-55 Powerstream, 65? Wilkey pack)

    Be advised, my friend, that you will get an unattractive Mag beam from this light. It will, however, be bright. Personally, I love this combo. I am pursuing a Perfect Mag Reflector from Otokoyama to smooth out mine. He is also working on a 3" "Magdaddy" head for even more smooth throw. This light glows and throws like... nothing else short of a specialty incan mod. Or spotlight.
