Standby current is 170 µA. Two years two drain a 3000 mAh battery.

The tailcap spring resistance is huge, 74 mOhm. No wonder it heats up. Definitely recommended to bypass it.

For reference, that’s 4 times as much as the similarly long spring of the Acebeam EC65.

My guess would be that this stock spring would activate the low voltage protection earlier than necessary giving less running time.

Current is pretty low. I suspect the tailcap gets warm because it’s the only place via the metal battery tube to dissipate heat.

Yeah, been running it at (1 amp which is around what the lantern draws) for a while and it’s not very hot. But does get hot at 2 A. If it’s a constant current driver, the current is higher on low battery. Has anyone done runtime graphs yet?

edit: maybe the heat path of the whole thing is directly connected there, since it looks like the whole bottom piece is part of the same aluminum block. The tailcap is just the only place without plastic molding.

I let the light run a couple of minutes with just the usb power connected (no battery) and the tailcap got warm (hot after 10 min). It’s the led and driver heat flowing there. Combined with the battery and spring heat, it’s no wonder then. The whole battery compartment seems to be the led heatsink as well.

If it’s not too late, I’m interested in 2 lanterns once this GB starts up again.

Hey freeme, is there a new coupon for this? The old one doesn’t work anymore for me (I’ve already ordered one T1 using the old coupon code)

I would’ve gotten another one as well, but the $5 shipping and the coupon not working kills it for me.

Thanks Freeme
