I have a rule of three system that works for me & that is what I aim for, sofar I have two, but I am planning for a 3rd. These lanters are proven on my behalf & they worked to perfection. I did buy quite the arsenal of 14500's but it turns out that although they are high drain, it was still very effective & managable to withstand a significant amount if time on med to high lumens. I did change them out after a few days but still impressed that it took days not hrs. to start alerting me of s power drop.
