There is likely resistance that needs to be improved as it should be brighter on Max. So the Protected Manker is not very high drain.
First off, thank you for taking the extra time to put this together. That test was amazing! I've never had a LED light that hot before and stopped at 180F. Granted, I didn't want to destruction test it either. It's great that it kept going!
1) Did it still output the same lumens after the light cooled down and new cell 30T installed? Yes. I checked and all as original. (I'm guessing it retained the same output)
2) Did you open up the light and check for any heat effects/damage? No. I only check for operation and output. I want to leave the driver & LEDs as is to see how it continue to hold up through all the tests.
3) Would you mind checking the output numbers with a 50E as that will probably be the capacity I'd be looking for. There will be About 50 different light engines to choose from. Lets save the performance to each cells test later.
It's nice to know what this light outputs on the various cells.
How will resistance compare between clicky and twisty?
