If I use protected AW li ion 18660 flat top at what voltage does it cut itself off by protection?
I agree with you.So,I sold recently my predator pro& bought a regular viking (warm).I am actually considering offering a trade of my pro for the regular. I really like the flashlight and usually I don't mind twisty ui but it is a little difficult to twist such a big head and it is stiffer than eagletac to twist.
If I understand correctly the ui of predator it is push button vs twisty.
I find programming too difficult and have no need for candlelight mode from such a big light. I tried the voltage check and it said my freshly charged aw 18650 was 3.6 volts. I know it was 4.1
Does this light have a turbo stepdown? Have anyone run into thermal protection that activate to reduce the light temperature?
That's right, I didn't - but then, all my runtimes are done under a cooling fan. Under "extreme" conditions, there may very well be thermal safety features that kick. A number of lights in this class are likely to have this.That being said, it doesn't look like Selfbuilt ran into any thermal stepdown during his runtime tests - judging by the graphs in post #1.
I don't see a lot of talk about this particular flashlight here , is it considered a top contender in it's class ?
Was the test done with the warm version ? Beam looks a bit warmer compared to the other two lights on the first page beam comparisons .
