    Achesalot design with Dinotte Battery?

    I am planning on making an Acheslot light using three Cree XRE Q5's and the bflex UIB2 from taskled.com. I plan on running them at 1A. Can anyone tell me if I can use one of the batteries that came with my Dinotte 600L (the large batteries)? I can't find any specs on these batteries.

    Is there any reason I shouldn't?

    Thanks for the help. I'm a newb at the lightbuilding stuff.

    I just found the spec sheet here in Adobe format. It looks like it's a 7.2v battery. That means you either need to use a boost puck like the MaxFlex or Fatman or use a different battery (13.7-14.4v nicad or 14.8v lithium) to get enough forward voltage to use the bFlex with three LEDs.
    Train 'til you puke. Cheat to win. Party like a rockstar. We miss you, Jan!
