Damn you good. I was wrong.Pany B are great cells, full stop ! For me though they are not the preferred choice for this light or many other modded one. Maybe good for 4.5a or so BUT thats max, the 10a at 5a ask is a breeze and not pushed. What you have to consider is the toll it has on a cell , running pretty much full on................it will shorten its life over the course of.
I kind of dont look too much on the cost(other than crazy premiums on certain branded ones when inside they are an X cell, pay for the wrap basically). So i dont put a cost on them to an extent, by that i mean, if i want a high drain cell from a good manufacturer(LG/Samsung etc etc) then thats what i get. imho the 10a 3500 would be the better choice for this light even though its not a crazy output light. If starting from scratch and have to buy some, it would be the Sanyo's over the pany B's. Better to run it asking 50% of the cell than 100% basically(general comment). If i had a matching 4 pany cells, then i would be fine to use those over buying more..............if makes sense.
But looking at that graph the cycle upperhand the panas had will be gone after 300cycles working harder. And panas not ideal* / not useable# for *7A/ 14A#IIRC the pany may be good for up to 500 cycles, the sanyo maybe 300...............so the B's can still be the right choice in cell for many applications. Just when pushed(any cell) it will shorten its life over the course. Still not sure on the actual drain on this light, would guess around 4-5a ................but its a guess.
Howly sh...aaaaaaat.If you translate the page to english, it is a very thorough review of the K70. Now, scroll to the bottom and it looks like he has a amp probe reading 2.6A on turbo? So if its pulling only 2.6A I went with the protected Panasonic NCR18650 3400 MAH cells that mtnelectronics provide.
So is it now verified that this is setup 2s2p running on a buck/boost driver?
I'm looking for single components for a side project of something with similar characteristics. Where would I find a comparable driver?
Thanks..and yes I signed up to ask this question. If there is some where I need to be directed for a question like this then please point me in that direction.
Sounds cool. Any pics?Trying to attach the lanyard to the light,I understood that the metal hook that the lanyaard has,can easily damage the anodizing of the tail cap.So,I found a piece of heatshrink and adapted it to this hook,so it is not possible to wound the aluminum.
