Curious...
Are CR123 cells "safer" when used with low current draw applications?
Has anyone had Lithium cells explode in an X5 (for example)? This light is often used as a cell vampire, whats the real risk in doing that if the current draw is that low?

A lot of the reported CPF explosions seem to be centered around higher current applications... or am I way off on that?
