Re: Pill Life

I don't know which pill I have - it is not marked. It is a two battery set up. Does this help? badsworth Sorry to put a downer on things but the 2 battery torches are about as useful as an ashtray on a motorbike for NV hunting. What sort of NV setup are you using, giving as much detail as possible ...
