The extra runtime using the battery pack might be a mute point for me if the X45vn gets too hot on 30% for extended run time situations. I would think that this light would run cooler at 30% (7,500 lumen) than my TN30vn50 (7,000 lumen) popcan because of the larger head on the X45, but I am not sure it does. I'm gonna test that out tonight.
I was able to run at 30% for 15 minutes, it got warm but not too hot. Running at 50% got hotter that I am comfortable with after about 7 minutes. It could likely run at 40% for a long time as well.
The SkyLumen site says something about a 30 second turbo burst, but mine did not seem to step down. I will try it again tonight and watch the time closely. Does anyone know what the light steps down to?
