    I think my VC4 is special...

    Yes, these cells are from older productions, I started using them ~6 months ago and noted on the high resistance. I was surprised that VC4 being a pretty good all-rounded charger, was unable to terminate and keep (wasting energy) trying to put charge into the cells. My other NiMH chargers, all...

See below pic. yup, Standard battery is right, no worries for your purpose. that "IMPROVED!" wording is a sticker, so you may still be getting the latest version even without the sticker. More importantly, the downloaded L91 datasheet PDF properties says it was last modified...

    Updated Energizer L91?

    first post updated with 1A discharge results: thanks for the feedback mate. :thumbsup: yes, cell age does play a part in the discharge difference. Of the 30+ L91 cells that I've tested for past 6 years, so far have not had one that exceed 3100mAh even when fresh (within 12 months of their...

    Updated Energizer L91?

    Saw this 2-pack Energizer Ultimate Lithium at a pharmacy, I'm immediate intrigue by the sticker word "IMPROVED!", but what exactly has Energizer improved? No idea!

    Eneloop (SANYO) Customer Service Thumbs Down

    sorry to hear that you have problems with the batteries... i've had exceptional customer experience with Sanyo Asia previously where they replaced my batteries (2700mAH) with no question asked. I am using Eneloop in my TK40 too... and until I read your post just now, it's been in storage...

    mine works like this... when full or freshly charged when time to recharge/half-full (actually, more like anything below 85%) when low (it's red) when battery is empty, the LED would flash red once and turn off...

    thanks for the kind words, troelskc. I do not have any equipment other than the actual flashlight I'm testing with, no lux meter, no logging. I make sure I'm always at close proximity or carry the light with me when I'm doing the runtime test. I do the following test planning... based on...
