How to keep my high performance 2500 lumen flashlight cool ?
It tends to run hot quickly. My concern the heat will kill the batteries faster and really afraid it could explode from the heat.
@ Mark according to all the reviews I have read it just runs hot because of the capacity of the lumens. I was just wondering if there was any way to make it help maybe stay cooler.

New flashlight takes 12 AA batteries. I am just trying to find a solution so it runs cooler. I had a flashlight with built in rechargable battery stopped charging after two months.

i've read reviews these confangled modern flashlights are 'disposable'. twenty years ago … we'd purchase a flashlight … recharge the batteries when low … or purchase new batteries.
with these new bloody led flashlights … recharging/replacing is a moot factor … they will no longer be dependable. from my perspective … it all boils down to supply 'n demand. they make products that fail … so more products are purchased. people don't complain … so, the cycle of abuse continues.
i purchased a small led flashlight several years ago ($12+/-) … batteries eventually died (after not being used in five years). replaced with new batteries … turned on for five seconds … worked only sporadically from then on. after two minutes … nothing more. piece of junk.
have you replaced the oem batteries? have you recharged the oem batteries? did this happen when the batteries were dead? or … have you replaced the batteries before they died?
imho… as mark suggested … i doubt the batteries would become too hot.

You might have a bad battery connection which will increase the amperage and therefore the heat.
I don't think it will explode like the Lithium-ion batteries on cellphones can do.
