Like said above ^

Works with Alkaline, Lithium primary and NiMh AA Batteries. Initial output is slightly dimished with NiMh batteries.
Made in the USA!

Note: This is a 5W LED running at approximately 2.5W as the Maglite's plastic reflector cannot handle, nor can the body dissipate, the heat of the LED running at full output. Additionally 2 AA batteries cannot efficiently generate enough current to run this unit at 5W.

you could NOT at all run 2X li-ion, and i would guess that even a single li-ion fully charged might push it over its ability to regulate. which might work great for a While , then nothing. with a 5W led in there, you do not want to push it over, as they do not like that at all.
