40 lumens, 10+ hours; would be curious to see if that was a flat regulated portion, then declining output after that ?
Personally, I /love/ 40 lumens - I still recall the "glory alleluia's" in the Malkoff subforum when we got our 'M61N 4L' GB deliveries.
I haven't looked into output & runtimes recently for 1xCR123, is that good or just reasonable these days ?
Edit: Honestly; the more I think about these, the more I realize how great they would be for lightweight 'stash lights' here&there in outdoors gear.
Am totally cool with the 1xCR123 fuel source, functioning as high-capacity backup lighting.
It appears that the ratings are pretty much unchanged- I remembered or read wrong. These new colors look great, I will likely pick up a couple soon. I do think maybe the landscape has changed a bit since I bought my first ones though; I feel there are a lot more options now for good quality budget LED lights. The Splash Lite might not be as competitive as it was as I've found a few good budget options over this last year. Still, it's a known quantity with a good track record so I'd have plenty of confidence keeping them in my kits.
