You do know that there is a forum dedicated to lights and other dedicated electronic gadgets, right? However, if you plan on using this light to locate poop, perform house inspections, give Rube some extra light while he's overhauling the motor on the kitchen table, or offer to use the retina searing beam as eye bleach for those unsuspecting folks who fall prey to Chipcom in a dress...

some odd things in the notes:
Quote:
7. Strongly suggest using the battery with protecting board, so that it can avoid over-change and over-discharge, and protect battery and prolong its service life
8. While using 16340 such kinds of rechargeable lithium battery, you should avoid over-charge and over-discharge, it means that: charge at it once when the light of flashlight remarkably dimmed
9. Avoid direct sunlight
10. Insert the batteries must be based on the mark to position the positive (+) and negative (-) terminal
7 and 8 suggest it doesn't shut off to prevent over-discharge. 10 means its not protected against reversed polarity.

9 means its made of carbon fiber

Newest one claims 3800 lumens but it is just 3 xmls t6 and with 12 volts is only pulling a amp and a half so id guess more like 2000 lumens it will be my new bike light
