Currently I have a DB 917 lux III running on a L4 body. I would like to revert this light back to stock with the McE2s two stage tail cap.
What I would now like to do is replace the 917 with something that would run on an E1e body. I currently have the KL4 head running on this light but would like to move it back to the two cell body where its value can be more realized.
I need suggestions on a BB milliamp value that would be best for a one cell operation!
Brightness for me is perfered over run time as long as that runtime is over 30-45 minutes.
I've found that a BB652 gives around 45 minutes or more regulation hour runtime on 1x123 if using a Lux III J bin Vf. If I had an H bin Vf I'd go up to a BB694. If I had a K bin Vf I'd run it on a BB611.
These suggestions are all based on using a Badboy rev 4 and aiming for as bright as possible but still having the light regulated for around 45 minutes. I'm not sure why KJ's chart shows only 30 mins regulation, but my own graph of a BB667 rev 2 using TV0J achieved over 40 minutes regulation.
