I'm planning on popping an L92 into my streamlight microstream and leaving it in my truck in case of emergency. I understand L92 because have similar characteristics to 3 volt cr123a primaries. I could be wrong though. Resistance to cold, leakage and a long operating lifetime are specifically of interest to me. I've also heard that the operating voltage can be slightly higher than an alkaline cell. Any thoughts? Will this cause problems, and has anyone used L92s in their microstream before? I know its only a 15 dollar light, but it's one of my favorites.

My experience with them in both the Microstream, and the Stylus Pro has been great. No problems at all. Statements from other members are similar. In fact, they have every advantage over Alkalines that you've mentioned, plus a flatter discharge curve, meaning the light's output will hold up better throughout the battery's runtime. You may notice the higher initial output as well.

I believe there's more than one graph on these batteries around here, but start by checking out member/moderator Silverfox's data.

Even better than one L92 in the Microstream, if this is to be stashed in the truck for emergency use, is two of 'em in the Stylus pro. Excellent combination of performance, and low cost. Really nice output for this type of light, and much longer runtime if needed in times of trouble.

In other words... highly recommended! :thumbsup:

I have used only lithium cells in both my SL Microstream and Stylus Pro since I got them about a year ago. No problems at all.

Thanks guys. I just picked up a pack of enegizer lithiums today. Works great. I am very confident with the performance now. Thanks again.
