Streamlight does not recommend using rechargeables but I know many of you on here do. My question is is it safe to use 2500 MAH nimh batteries in the Streamlight Lux jr or no?

The 2500 energizers is the only thing I use in my Streamlight Jr.s. The lights seem to run just a brightly, the runtime seems good, will they shorten the life of the LED - I have no idea and may never know.

I use Energizer NiMHs 2300mAh in mine. It's usually on for approx. 15-20mins at a time so it gets slighty warm but that's about it. Current draw from the batteries is a little higher for the NiMHs as compared to a fresh set of alkalines but I presume that is the regulation circuit compensating for the slightly lower voltage of the NiMHs.
