SabreLite 2020 vs 2010 burn time

Postby JimBob on Wed Oct 22, 2008 6:29 am

The SabreLite 2020 claims to have technology to increase its burn time as an improvement over the 2010; however, you list the 2010's burn time as 50 hours and the 2020's burn time as 6 hours.

Should 2010's be 5.0 or should 2020's be 60?

The specs are correct and match the Pelican website. The 2020 has a voltage regulator so it produces full power through the entire range of battery life. You have full power for 6 hours. The 2010 does not have the voltage regulator. It may run for 50 hours but it is only full power for close to an hour before the light levels start dropping. At 35+ hours, you have usable light, but not full power.
Best regards,
