I've been playing with a few circuits that will light a red T1 LED mounted in a Mag 2D just above the switch when battery voltage drops to a specified level. My question is : what voltage should I set it to for a 6AA NiMH driven 5W LS? I was thinking 6V for turn-on of the indicator, but maybe I should let the cells run down to .8V each (4.8V). But I don't think I'd be getting any useful light at 4.8V. Any ideas?
