can be carried out in less than 10 minutes using a small flat blade screw
driver, full instructions are provided, no soldering or permanent modifications
The lifetime of
the unit is well over 20,000 hours, so bulb changing becomes a thing of the
past. Light output is from 70 to 400 lumens with even the lowest setting being
bright enough to use underground. Mode changing is carried out by turning the
cap switch on and off quickly.
The RETRO XP provides full performance
with voltage inputs from 2.3 - 6.0V. It will also work with single cell NiCD /
NiMH's / Alkaline batteries at reduced light output. If used directly with a
standard Oldham 4V 16Ahr battery the run times for the RETRO XP are
approximately: Mode 1 (70lm) - 90 Hours, Mode 2 (185lm) - 42 Hours and Mode 4
(400lm) - 19 Hours.
