    Default LED: Question for you experts out there!

    New to LEDs and what I want to know is when the batteries (3 Surefire CR 123's) in my new M1X are being depleated will the light dim to let me know I need to change the cells like say a Maglite? Or will I go to turn it on and it will just be dead? Hate to need the light on duty and no light! Thanks.

    Most high power lights will lose power very quickly when they start to dim...

    If you are allowed to use the rechargeables...try 2 18500 lion cells. More power than the 3 123's...keep the 123's for backup!

    Selfbuilt did a test of the M1X in the review section that shows all of the battery configurations.
    Striker VG, SL Scorpion Led, Huntlight FT01, Wolf Eyes 9 v Raider, D-Mini Lumapower, Drumlights, Surefire G2, Dereelight ,Ultrafire 500, Power on Board HID, Olight T 20 Q 5, Zebralight H-30, Nitecore EX 10, Eagletac T10C2, MTE P 7D, Icon Rogue 2

    Thanks lighthouse, I will look into the rechargeables. Try'n to keep the ol' lady in the dark (haha) about the possible costs of my new found hobby but I supose that is in the long run cheaper then CR123's!

    I also have a Jetbeam M1X. Although I purchased the extender and 2 18650 rechargable batteries. Longer runtime and probably more output... I also like the longer feel with the extender in place.
