    Check out the links Newbie has posted above. It's a Zetex circuit. BTW, the IC has 5 legs.

    Oh Ok, I thought it was just speculation.

    Zetex brand FMMT617 Silicon switching transistor that folks were utilizing back in 2001 with the Zetex circuit:

    Keep posting guys, at this rate, by 2009, they might make it up to some of the old Maxim chips that Dat2zip was using in in BadBoy in 2002.

    Roy, did you fan cool the light during the runtime? I got quite a different curve on the 3AA than you did.

    What sort of curve did you get? Inquiring minds want to know.

    The only fan in use is a 48 inch ceiling fan. The lights sit in the open and get cooled by a VERY gentle air movement.
    Bright...Small...Long Runtime.......You can have any two but NOT all three!

    I directly fan cooled the lights when I ran them, using a 14" fan on high from about a foot away.




    Here's a closeup of the first hour.



    I think the thermal throttling may have had something to do with it.

    Question Re: Run-Time Plot - Mini Mag LED 2xAA & 3xAA

    So you can't use rechargeables in either light?

    They work on the 2AA, should also work with the 3AA model.

    Are their any runtime graphs out there? I'm interested in the 3AA, but it's pretty long. I was wondering what the output and runtime is compared to other AA lights out there.

    Roy,

    Thanks for the runtime plots for the 3AA. I bought one and a pack of Energizer Lithiums for it. I am verry happy. Lithium batts make the light. Thanks again.

    Guess I wasn't clear enough, I was looking for a NIMH runtime graph for the 2AA or 3AA model.

    the runtimes from light to light seem to be pretty inconsistent
