* Thermal regulation on Turbo setting. This setting will typically operate for up to 1 minute max (from cold !), and for as little as a few seconds (from warm !) before thermal regulation will step power back to 350mA 'high' setting in order to protect LED from over temperature operation and damage

 

** Petzl Modu'led 14 (producing a distinctly 'blue' light) is rated at 67 lumens at around 350mA

 

*** When fitting with Gecko Spot module, discard original reflector. When fitting with original halogen bulb then it is necessary to retain reflector. If replacing a 5 LED array or bi-pin bulb then the original reflector will require modification. 14 LED reflector does not require modification
