So i'm really liking the idea of picking up a Daytime Red 400R. I would use it in parallel with my regular 400R. I have a 2 cell battery on my 400R, but for the Daytime Red i'm not sure if i should get a 2 cell or a 4 cell ?
The mode i use almost exclusively is "steady with pulse burst" which is rated at 6 hours on the 2 cell for both regular 400R and the Daytime Red. i specifically asked Dinotte to confirm that in fact Daytime Red gets the same run time and they said yes - they said that extra output in Daytime Red comes from increase in efficiency.
by comparison the 4 cell is rated for 12 hours on "steady with pulse burst"
my last 2 rides at night were 3 hours, so 6 hours from 2 cells should be enough for me ... but would you go with 4 cells anyway ?
do you have any thoughts on this ?
PS: Dinotte always messes up their specs - all the specs on the page have changed since i looked at them a few weeks ago, so i would take them with a grain of salt, but here is the page:
