First problem is they are Leaper's flashlights. Check those batteries a little closer they are probably more like 3.4+ volts instead of 3.0.

they read 3.0v but i tested them on volt meter and it read 3.3 to 3.5 i think the voltage changes on rechargables in fact i read on label charged 3.5 down to 2.4 drained... guess thats it hmmmmm

'Leapers' is loosely translated from the Chinese word meaning 'junk'
