CPF is a drain for people like me. I like buying all the low cost ones to test. -_-

would be great if these used AA. i have so many AA NIMH.

if there was a costco closer to me -- i'd be all over this.

Addiction to light darkness? venture at candlepowerforums and you be surprised on the compulsive.
On a serious note, I have a pretty huge backyard thats dark at some areas, walk the dog nightly, like to work on car engines and so on.



about 6 hours runtime on low mode, 2 on high

At our Costco the 200 lumen ones are $12. So, $4 each for 3 AAA duracell bateries AND a kick A$$ little flashlight. I may or may not have bought 10 packs.

There's nothing wrong buying the low cost lights. I have tried modding some but it turns out it gets more expensive with time and money. Now they are better and cheaper.
cree posted here is a darn bright light: downside is the battery if you are not into 18650's

Light emitters on flashlights is the way to go now a days.

Why would you use a flash light everyday?
Only one word: burglary! EEK!

I have bought the same set last year and I use one of them almost everyday. Nice enough to have around the house and for emergency. They may have improved the switch button like mentioned above. Will pick this up if I am in the market. Sure are brighter than my e2dl surefire but not as well build.
Do you know if you can use an 18650 battery in this flashlight?

Does this flashlight have the parasitic drain issue?

The last 3 pack I bought from Costco had an issue where the batteries went dead in <1 year from the circuit that monitors the switch.

They are? The packaging says "weather resistant."

There is no little red light so the monitoring feature appears to be gone.

Do the eneloop last longer under heat/cold conditions when kept in the car?

I have never read anything indicating this. When I was in very cold weather for long periods, i would keep the batteries inside my down jacket, hence body temperature. Then when needing them, pop them into the light/camera, and get much better time out of them. I think that the more expensive lithium batteries are the only ones that seem to deal well with extreme temperatures.

I bought about 6 a few months ago. I love them.

Edit: I have the 200 lumen version.

I'm on my first round of eneloops and they don't seem to last that long. Do they need a few charge cycles before they become "normal" use?

I actually went back and checked for you and took some much better pictures.

High Mode: 1 Hour
Low Mode: 4 Hours

Thanks OP. FYI, my store (Coleman Ave) had them by the camping equipment, not in the tool area. There were lots of the Feit 2 packs, also.
