Somebody pointed me to a datasheet (Not on Panasonic website):

As can be seen on the numbers and on all the curves: alkaline batteries does not handle a high load very well.
According to specifications, these batteries are much better than anything Panasonic has sold before, but looking at the curves they are not very impressive for flashlight usage.
Being the first alkalines I test, I cannot say how well they compare to other brands.
