You can use this great FM 1794 bulb in two ways with big cells like C size and 18650
after speaking with fivemega I have concluded theres only two options for a good ten hours of 600 lumens out of a FM 1794
Never touch it by the way..you oily skin will burn it out.
1 An Aw soft Start. 49$.
2 if not using a soft start FM INSISTS you NOT charge your black AW LiCo cells above 4.10 (and MDOCOD says this extends battery life)
fresh off the charger at 4.19 volts x2 on a big cell will 99% guarantee an instaflash.
the reason, the bigger the cell the less its voltage sags while the filament heats up and its resistance changes.
Read the guide by MDOCOD if you havent. https://www.candlepowerforums.com/threads/161536
