Questions & Reviews
do you know what the weight of this is with the battery and strap?
I can run it primarily on low, with many times bumping up to high (1.5hrs on high within 7hrs total) for 7 hrs.
Two batteries are nice but one will last till the sun comes up unless you are on high for hours and start at sunset. But that is just silly.
