akan datang... the i1r2 eos. what i find strange is that although it pushes 20l more, it seems to be a downgrade from its predecessor in the sense that:

(i) smaller battery capacity (70mah vs 80mah);
(ii) lesser throw (40m v 54m)
(iii) lesser light intensity (400cd v 730cd)
(iv) less stamina (@ max 15m v 20m; @ 5l 6h v 7h)
(v) fractionally heavier (13g v 12g)
(vi) fractionally bigger

so what gives???  confused.gif

(waiting for rookiedaddy's enlightenment)

my best guess is they've fixed the issues i1r had of it just dying...

wasn't that due to the possibility of overdischarge, tho? confused.gif

are the batteries replaceable with v.2? hmm.gif

possibly...but with such short run times on high...and no battery indicator...well...could be...
but then again there is no reason for them to just change the battery if thats the case...even more so to a lower capacity one which reduces the runtime on high by 25%....
so i still say v1 has battery issues...

waiting for more hands-on review of this... but it does appear that the battery is still not replaceable. and you may be right that v1 probably had some battery issues... but even so, why go with a lower capacity replacement? hmm.gif

v1 and v2 diameter largely the same, just v2 is longer by 3mm...so maybe the LED is also longer...so need to reduce batt capacity abit more? just a guess...wait for someone to go dismantle it tongue.gif

i'm more curious on the new nitecore tiki...its a sgd39 light...so probably be slightly cheaper once it reaches here.
