    Long-shot request: Anyone near Cortina Italy with a 7.4v battery?

    Hey all, we're in Italy to run some ultramarathons.
    It looks like Barb is low on battery power for her Glowworm.

    I had thought she was OK, but planned to program her light for lower power for running 2 nights. She wants to run at the stock levels she tested rather than have me mess around with it so close to race day, so it's my bad.

    Anyone know where we could beg, borrow or buy a 7.4v battery in Cortina Italy by Thursday with a Magicshine/Gemini/Glowworm connector?

    Mille Grazie.

    I got the light reprogrammed for long burn times. 300 lumens is lots for running, and should go 10hrs plus per battery. Barb can jump up to 600 or 1200 lumens for tricky bits.

    Light was fine for 2 nights with a 2500maH for night1, a 3500maH for night 2 and a backup 1900maH and 800maH that weren't needed.

    Glad it worked out. Maybe if you order a spare pack from China it might show up in time for next years race..... I kid, sounds like a cool event tho!

    It's an absolutely spectacular race!


    You'll notice most people use piddly hiking lights, so Barb was well lit.
    I did the bunny race, the 50k Cortina Trail Race which covers the last and hardest part of LUT, which took me 8 hours so I didn't need lights this time.
