12 lights in a drawer; mostly ignored these days...

Mostly ignored, but at least together they aren’t lonely… Today I checked all the cells.First time some have been held for about a year.

I’m sure you would have moor if you looked. Smile
How did the voltage hold up on the eswitch lights?

Oh yeah, there are several  many more larger lights in the cabinet below the drawer, plus some on a cabinet shelf in the shop, some still packed in like new boxes. Facepalm One in my pocket. Smile

 

As for the e-switch lights, I cheat and leave with the tailcap loosened when placed into storage, except for the Sofirm C8F, Supfire L5-S and the Q8 that are on an upper shelf ready for immediate use. When placed into storage the lithium cells were all around 3.9 volts. That was March 1, 2018. Today those cells were mostly between 3.5 and 3.6. One of the 14500's was at 3.3 volts. The AAA lights all have gen. 4 eneloops which were all above 1.3 volts after sitting the year.

Interesting what this hobby does to us… I also have drawers packed with electronics, batteries and lights. They just accumulate and fall asleep….
Cool lights you have there.
