Got mine in August, the next one in September, the next one in December........I get pretty good results using the Battery Station lithos.

I think they showed up around June or July.....

Here's the battery discharge analysis chart I made for it on 08-22-04.
Runs for 1 hour 40 minutes to 50% intensity, and 3 hours 30 minutes overall (to 1.5% intensity).
A Streamlight brand CR123A cell was used for this test.

My Q3 with an SYOJ emitter doesn't even come close to running 90 minutes. I finished a runtime a couple of minutes ago. With a fresh rechargeable CR123A with 650mA capacity I got a runtime until empty of 33 minutes. If you do the numbers then my Nuwai is running a average of 1182mAh...almost 1.2A.

The Q3 is brighter than my stock Longbow with a Lux I and Longbow with a Downboy 1000 and a TXOJ emitter. Both of those are also running single RCR123A cells.

Runtime I don't have a lot of but brightness...yes!
