I got some rechargeable 123 batts recently. I put them in my insight M3 light and the bulb went poof.burn the baby out. I measured the voltage of the rechargables and the were 4.0 volts. Oviously too much for a regular bulb.

I am thinking of getting a light with a LED. If I use the rechargeables in the LED one,will I get the same result? as in poof???Burnout??
