Woah! So it’s a whole new model similar to the T1, but bigger that has RGB leds, a clock and speakers in it? Neat. Big Smile

It doesn’t look like it is battery powered? Only AC powered?

This one’s output seems much lower. There’s also a lot less of any one color leds.

Oh, it’s way bigger as well. So that helps reduce heat.

and I thought it was determined that the T1 didnt have heat issues unless using a defective battery …. did I miss something?

Yes, even a ‘bad’ cell (high IR, etc.) will heat up substantially even when charged.

That’s pretty much the case it seems. It can heat a battery to around 50°C to 55°C. Most cells have an operating range of up to 60°C or 70°C depending on the cell.

I worded that badly.

It is still safe and does not appear to go over the limits of any of the components.

It does get unnecessarily hot due to a bad heat path though. I should of asked if this lantern has a better heat path.

Look what I did… TCLO!

After another fishing trip last night where my T1 was half dead before even arriving at the secrete fishing spot cause it got turned on high in my bag I was determined to get TCLO working without use of a paper disk and I accomplished it with ~8” of Teflon pipe tape!

That’s neat…. but I wonder how many screw/unscrew cycles before it needs to be redone?

Even if it needs redone once a month it’s better than the other options [none] and a lifetime supply costs 99¢…

I have 2 and like them, until one started acting up. It turned on by itself and no longer powers off. Neither are used much, couple hours each max total.

I would maybe wait for version 2.0. This one could use a few tweaks to make it better.

That’s been out for 7 months. So it’s a different item.
