    I think that is respectable!

    BTW, an update on mine: Has been shut off [other members of the household] twice for an unknown period time, each less than 10 hours. Otherwise, has been running continuously for ~190 hours. 465 hours sounds excellent, though
    I love my HDS/Ra Clicky... My only wish would be a 5th(accessible thru a 2click press) mode, and a 2AA tube.

    That's why i stick with the legacy models. I use low alot for camping and stuff. It's so convenient to be able to leave the light on during a night with virtually no impact on runtime, so you or others can get up without waking others they would stumble upon in total darkness.

    That is amazing! I am surprised the 100 went so long. That is significantly longer than my newer 140 or 200. I can't quite understand it.

    As stated in this thread the legacy models are (much) more effiecient on lower models than the current Versions (ACME).

    Just for clarification, do you mean legacy, as in Pre-Novatac? OR the older gen. Ra Clicky series?

    Maybe because the battery was a 4sevens.

    We should do a comparison on a setting that is approximately 6lms.

    I have a Legacy 120 modified with an XP-G that I started yesterday. I am not expecting much difference in run time...we will see.

    Sure thing, I'll do whatever you guys want.

    Which Clicky, which setting, which cell? (older SF, newer Battery Station, new Ti Innovations)

    My 140n is still chugging along. And will still do the full 10 second Burst [haven't let it run longer than that as i want to see how long it will ultimately run]. I'm honestly surprised by this. I started on the 8th, and it's the 27th, so after ~18 days of continuous run time I wouldn't have thought the cell would be able to provide enough current to light up "burst" setting.
    I love my HDS/Ra Clicky... My only wish would be a 5th(accessible thru a 2click press) mode, and a 2AA tube.

    Nice!
    I assume this is a previous generation light?
