    Default SMJLED- any have them fail yet?

    I remember there being issues with them being too overdriven. Any issues arise?

    I never used it enough to find out before brighter lights came out.

    How many lights run 40hrs on a pair of AAs, though

    I put a 2C light with PR-2 SMJLED in my wife's car years ago, it still works fine. Somewhat cold (purple) but works fine.

    Nope...

    Use it a lot in my daughter's room as a night light.

    I thought the analysis was bogus as (i seem to remember) it was run at a constant voltage of either 3vdc or 3.4vdc with no battery drain or intermittent usage to reduce overheating.

    I use mine with rechargeables at 2.4vdc anyway. Run them all night for many nights and left on many days to.

    No problems and still seem bright.

    Even have one in a ammo can for EMP protection (just in case).

    Hope it's insulated from the container, otherwise it'll still fry.
    I love my HDS/Ra Clicky... My only wish would be a 5th(accessible thru a 2click press) mode, and a 2AA tube.
