Jim, how do you carry the battery, the shoulder strap or did you buy the belt clip? do you turn your light on/off or just leave it on? I am finding that I get maybe 1-1.5 hours of bright light out of the battery then it dims .. (?) .. maybe I should condition my battery?

PAG 6 Light and Battery

I use the shoulder strap. When I am not using the light I turn it off since it can get annoying. Eventually the light starts to dim so I need to change batteries. Two will last me few hours as long as I don't keep the light on for too long.
I use a 20W lamp. The 30W lamp gave me better light but ate through the battery in about 30 minutes.
