Thread: Protected cells in (zebralights)

    Default Protected cells in (zebralights)

    If a flashlight has short circuit and over discharge protection, like all modern zebralights, and uses only one cell, there is no need for protected batteries, correct?

    In that case, would protected batteries give a shorter runtime or warmer operating temperature because of the Internal resistance of the PCB?

    Part of why I ask is because a protected cell shows up on the zebralight webpage for my headlamp =p

    correct, one cell lights usually do not need protected cells, i can't use Panasonic protected cells (green) in my h600, they are too long.
    as far as shorter runtime, possibly. if a cell's protection has higher shut off limit, but they are usually close, 2,75-3v, as far as temp, no difference.
