Hello All. This is my first post here, not sure if it should be in the LED section? I bought this flashlight at Cabela’s years ago and didn’t save any packaging or info on it. I cant find it on Cabela’s or LED Lenser’s site. Does anyone know how many lumens it is, or have any other info on it? It is the first “serious” flashlight I’ve owned, and really like it. It (to me) is hugely bright, and the adjustable beam is really handy!
TIA, Greg.

Also, it takes a single 18650 flat top battery, which has to be removed to be charged in the USB charger.

Thanks Guys! I guess I should have looked on the Cabela’s US site instead of Canada. They list it as using two CR123A batteries, but mine came with a single 18650. I imagine that the flashlight itself is identical…just the batteries and charger would be different. From my limited research so far I believe that two CR123A’s can replace an 18650, but not necessarily vice versa, due to the diameter difference correct?

18650 is 18mm od. CR123 are 16mm od.
18650 usually put out 3.7 to 4.2 volts.
CR123 put out about 3 volts each.

If the pictured battery fits……well. 😂

two CR123A's will FIT, but their combined higher voltage may destroy the light.
Some lights can handle the higher voltage and also run well on the lower voltage of a single 18650.
I don't know if there is a way to determine if your light will handle 2X CR123's

When the battery gets low, the light will flash a couple of times to warn me. It will stay on at full brightness until the battery is too low and then will shut down. Is that protection circuit in the battery or the flashlight? Sorry for the stupid question, I am new to this field.
Thanks!

If this is your light fuyume posted about, then considering that there was no mention of being able to handle 6 volts, ie 2 x CR123 batteries, I would not try them.
Most of my lights will only handle the 4.2 volts of a single 18650, and I am fine with that.

Regarding your question about voltage protection, the blinking is a warning from the light. Shutting off can be either the light, the battery, or both.
