i recently acquired a WE M90 from RichS that came with the LF EO-9L and LF HO-12, as well as the LED tailcap for looooooong runtimes and lower light output

its lighting up the EO-9L at full power using the special high drain Emoli IMR-18650's...... love the output in a slim package


i have a couple of AW's new IMR-16340's (which can easily handle ~5A current draw)

i'm gonna power up the HO-12 using 3x IMR-16340's and a dummy
...just wanted to know what the current draw for the HO-12 on 4 primary cells so i can estimate its runtime on the AW cells (rated ~550maH)

i know it'll be a short runtime.... but i've got another backup light on my duty belt (plus the LED tailcap when the cells cant power up the bulb anymore)

looks like the HO-12 doesnt work well with 3x rechargeables and a dummy

:poof: there goes $20 :lolsign:

Those IMR16340 cells hold up to high-amperage amplications VERY well, a lot better than normal li-ions or primaries.

Worth a try though and now everyone knows not to try that setup out! :laughing:
