OK. Did not realize they dropped that much underload. Quite surprised. I would assume that if a battery was designed to be regulated at 3 V, it should output 3 V. Regardless of the load. Within reason.
That battery will not drop to 3 volt because of load. It's electronically dropped to 3 volt without load or 2.5 volt under load of 1.5A very similar to primary CR123A
BTW, primary CR123A has nominal voltage of 3 volt without load. It will drop to about 2.5 volt under load of 1.2 Amp (P60) or about 2.2 volt under load of 2.4 Amp (P61)

No. I mean it's electronically regulated at 3 v. So it should be 3 v. Regardless of load. Until it's maxed out. My a2 aviator is regulated to 4v, regardless of current draw. That's how I would expect a regulated cell to behave. Otherwise, it's not regulated
I know you've brought this up quite a few times before. But I have never seen anyone else say this is how these cells works. Where are you getting this info from? In all my research of these cells, they work like I said they should. And people have popped p60 bulbs immediately on them. Or claimed a very white and flat output. Telling me they are indeed outputting 3v.
I know this is off topic. But I don't want people blowing bulbs because they're under the impression that these are a direct rechargeable replacement for primary cr123a cells. In a led with some voltage overhead they will be fine. If they fit.

Based on my own use the 3v rcr123's have a very flat output with a p60 until the protection shuts the cells off. I only used one particular p60 with these cells, it started out a brand new unused lamp and probably only lasted a few hours of use with a few cell recharge cycles (rough estimate) before it flashed.
