With 6 cells, it would be configuredlol I'm so confused my enbrigten only uses 6 cells. it is the 550 lumens model how long wil it run on medium ? with the 6 cells it takes?
2x(parallel) 3 in series, so that you get 4.5 volts. and double the capacity of a single cell.
You need to know the capacity of a single cell in mah
and the number of ma the lantern pulls on medium
then divide the mah by the ma and that will give you hours.
since you have 2 sets of three in parallel, you can multiply your answer by two.
That will give you a rough, but decent estimate.
Using stereodude's readings from above:
H - 0.476A
M - 0.261A
L - 0.053A
Medium is 261 ma.
