Thanks

Can you “guess” how many lumens does it produces with just 3xAAA (no matter if alkaline or nimh)

Around 100 lumen?

by that graph, at 1a, it will have about 400l, so i would guess after driver inefficiencies, lens/reflector losses, maybe right around 300l on alkaleaks? 

i dont have anyway to measure lumens, just lux 

edit: im pretty sure it will do better on nimhs

Like I did with my F13, I would go with 4xAAA's with a 4AAA carrier.  My F13 was twice as bright with it!

Still need to remember to put one of those in my cart for my next order... It's been 4 orders since we talked about that and I totally forgot about it.

i bought myself a cool multi colored LED light bulb for a night light Cool

nah, but i did buy one for the kids room a while ago. i was pretty excited to see my sons reaction when he saw that his night light had a remote to change colors and would randomly change too... he said "i didnt want that i wanted a such and such"

kids can be so ungrateful. like $50 for a stupid night light and the lamp for it
