Old Dinotte Specs - help with red/green indicator
I have inadvertently purchased the original version of the Dinotte 3 watt 80 lumen Lithium Ion lighting system. Endurance Series Three Dual is the correct name,
Anyway, at least i got new battery packs with the system but no instructions about just what the "red" light means when the system has been on for a while.
What I want to know, if the red light means the battery current has dropped below a prescribed threshold, what happens if I continue running the light. Is there another current "threshold" gate/switch that will shut the system down before damaging the battery due to over discharge?
The way I understand it - it's a no no to deeply discharge Lithium batteries, yet I think I am supposed to do that for my lap top every couple of weeks....
