    LED CREE battery life?

    Well look like I'm the only one having issues with Led Cree, my 3 rides old battery suddenly died on its face after being fully 5 hour charged, only worked 15 minutes and the display button was always green.

    The thing is that whenever I plug it to the charger it works so it looks like it's no holding charge, now many hours does it supposed to be charged?

    I have a Cree XML T6 from China. I charged it about 3-5 hours (manufacturer recommendation via email). It last about 7 hours over a 3-week timeframe. When it did die, though, it just went black. No warning, no change in button light color like the Magicshines. I charged it yesterday and will take it out again tomorrow. If I have any problems, you will hear about it here.

    Do you have a link to which light you have? Cree makes a lot of different leds. Plus it would help us to identify which battery you have.

    However most of my batteries, from single 18650 cells, to 4 cell packs, usually take 4-5 hours to fully charge.

    Well mine was fully charged and just died after 15 min, even when I love the light don't feel it very reliable now, at least not the battery

    The one I got has the same plug than the Magicshine I already tested with mine
