    ThruNite Neutron 2C V3

    I am trying to get ThruNite Neutron 2C V3, how can I get one in New Zealand? I tried YouShop but seems like they don't accept batteries. Anyone know shops that will import it in for a reasonable price?

    There is a lot of BS there. To output 1100 lumens an XP-L needs to draw about 6A. Running on a to quality 18650 that is going to give you about 1/2 hour runtime.

    That's not correct. An XP-L needs about 3A for 1100 lumens, and around 3.5V. The battery is 4.2V at full charge, and the light uses a buck driver, so at full charge the load on the battery is 2.5A plus whatever inefficiency the driver adds. That 2.5 hour runtime surely assumes that it will hit the thermal stepdown though. Also take into account that when the battery hits around 3.7V, output will start to decrease. Not exactly by design, but because the driver won't have enough voltage to give the LED to sustain full output. This is fairly typical in 1xLi-ion lights unless they have a boost driver, which usually costs more.
