Which 14500 battery is better in the Fenix LD12 flashlight: the ARB-L14-800 or the ARB-L14-1600U?Updated 2 years ago

PLEASE NOTE: The following information applies only to the current model of the LD12 flashlight (round, plastic side switch). Older model LD12 lights cannot use the 14500 battery; only powered by AAs.

If you're wanting the full output of the Fenix LD12 flashlight, then we recommend you use the ARB-L14-800 due to it's higher voltage. The ARB-L18-1600U is convenient because of the USB port but its lower voltage does not allow the LD12 to achieve it's full brightness level.
