Some of you who have purchased the C6 Outdoor Flex Camp light kit will notice there's an extra power supply included.  This is a AA battery box.  We recommend only using it when you're using the light strip in the bag in lantern mode. 

LEDs don't function like normal lights that dim as the battery dies.  As the battery looses juice, the lights just work for shorter and shorter intervals.  Before camping, if you're using the AA battery supply with the lights in lantern mode, expect to replace the batteries each night.  The fancy Lithium AA batteries will give you up to 5 hours of use.   If you dim the lights, you'll get longer use time.  

For all other uses, power using a cell phone battery charger, or a cigarette lighter w/ a USB adapter.
