I have a Convoy S2 with an XM-L2 T6 3C on copper with a 3A two mode Qlite driver and AR coated lens. AWESOME light for its size. Fantastic output and great quality.

I checked various Datasheets they often state -20°C-60°C as operating temperature.
Cell voltage is a lot smaller on colder temperatures, capacity also. But that’s a problem with every batterytype…

Storage seems no problem as it is stated -20°C-50°C
On minus 10 and below a linear driver will fall out of regulation very quick because of the cell voltage.
But that’s just theory now someone needs to make a discharge test in refrigerator…

I have the 4AAA C8 style lamp in my car with a 3AAA holder with lithium primaries in it…
Not sure how energizer lithiumAAA behave in cold temperature as there is nothing stated, really nothing. But I guess it will still be 1000times better than the old 2D plastic Incan with 10 years old batteries…
Never use these anyway as I normally carry a bigger light in the can holder to play…

Just need a flashlight for our old car this winter. Fasttech has many choices in the convoy line. I like this model:http://www.fasttech.com/products/1601/10002364/1457701-convoy-s8-cree-xm... What does everyone think? I will not keep it in the car once spring rolls around. Thanks

I own a Convoy M1 – real 600+ lumens. Perfect for winter as it will toast your hands at the 8 minute mark and fry an egg after 10-12 minutes. Excellent for cold climates Smile – not so good in Florida. Bought it from the good guya at Illumination Supply.
