Default Battery question

Hi guys, so i recieved my Lyra C5 today from laserglow, and im stoked on it, sick ass laser! I will be doing a review on it like i said but my camera is being repaired atm. I just have a quick question, it says on the instructions to use only alkaline batteries, and i have e2 lithiums that i want to use but am scared to use them and dont want to break my laser, will these batteries be ok to use in my laser? And what would be the best batteries to use in the laser to pump it out to the lasers maximum power?

If you are going to give $60 for a 5mw laser then why would you want to push it farther and possibly lessen the life on it.

You paid extra money for good quality I don't think I would do anything to jeopardize it. I think I would just have to be content with my laser.

It should be safe to use NiCd or NiMH they are lower voltage only 1.2 V instead of 1.5 V of alkaline but they can put out more current.

To keep from voiding your warranty you may want to check with laserglow to make sure that it is ok.

Most lasers(I'd bet all greens do actually.. never heard of a green without it) have regulating circuitry so my bet is it will be fine with lithium's. I've used E2's in my old leadlights and WL executive lasers without a problem before and they've all been fine. The only laser that may have a problem is the WL pulsar because it is not regulated.

I'd say go for it.
