are they regulated i.e. stay bright right till the battery dies or do they get dimmer?

I expect you would get a period at max brightness and then they would fade.

The internal circuits dictate a lot.. I doubt max brightness would last longer than half hour (if that) but the dimming tends to be quite slow from there on in.

Could be way off, but that's my experience of LED tech thus far..

Even regulated circuits behave the same, my Peli flashlight (high quality, relatively pricey), runs on CR123A's, does..

But AAA batteries are only 99p a dozen at the 99p store ;)

My Peli is a few years old (but is over £100 with the upgrade :shock: )..

Tech moves on I suppose..

What batteries does your dealextreme run on??

comes with rechargeable pack (consists of 4 batteries wrapped up and a lead). Best light I've ever used. For that price I thought if it lasts a winter I am happy, but it'll be heading into a 2nd winter this year :D Link here: http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.25149

we all bought one each in the East Mids group and used them all winter - rain, snow, -8 deg C, dust the lot - no problems at all.
