Yeah, after the normal LVP kicks in the power drops off really fast, which is why I am not bothered by the early LVP. If I really need the light on that long, I would rather extend the time I have it for vs a little longer at max power. But to each their own, nothing wrong with your setup if that is what you like.
I use VTC6, 30Q, HG2. VTC6 give best performance. I have enough high drain batteries, still have 20+ new batteries unused. So I am not getting any battery soon.
I have thicker wire but they are not rated as 200 degree c. I am using silicon wire that can withstand high temperature better. That’s why i squeeze 4 of them there. Springs are not bypassed, what i afraid bypassing spring will cook something because the current will be very high.
Silicone wires are really the best for our mod i guess. Inexpensive, soft, high flexibility and temperature resistant. I bought a few meter of black and red color many years ago and can’t finish them at all.
There are pros and cons to each. The Teflon insulation is thinner, so you can get more wires together without adding bulk and it can withstand higher temperatures. You see it used in high temp appliances like stoves, dryers, etc… the down side is it’s stiffer.
Silicone can’t handle the same high temperatures and is thicker, but it’s much more flexible.
It’s definitely better than the average low temp wire insulation you see on cheap wire.
