    3.6v is the right battery for the GLV not the 3v

    So I finally got some Ultrafire Protected 16340 1000mAh 3.6 volt batts, and measuring the voltage at the atty connection shows as 8 volts (OK, 7.98 volts) This seems a bit high for a 5 volt mod? Any fix?

    nope thats right you should get 8ish ...the atty will drop 1 1/2 volts ..ish and the resistor will do the same = 5-5.5v

    Oh, cool then! I thought that the resistor would drop the voltage before it got to the atty connector. Thanks for the info!

    I have on hand 16340 3.0 volt 880 mah batteries and rcr123a 3.0v 750 mah lifepo4 batteries? Will either of these work? I know the 3.6 volt are recommended but hoping I don't have to order additional batteries.

    Check the label on your 16340's. They should be 3.6V. Mine are and they are exactly what you need in the GLV.
