batteries for Fenix L2D

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Sanyo Eneloops. Less self discharge...and a little less capacity...then regular NiMH. Circuit City has 2 with a charger for around $20. They also carry 4 packs of them for around $12 without the charger.

Any rechargeable or nonrechargeable will work, if you want longer burn time look for higher mAh ratings on NiMh batteries.

Absolutely! +1 Work perfect in my L2D...and don't have to charge them up every couple months like the "normal" NiMH.
