Wow, 3000 "LUENS". :D

Nice price of less than $100! The stats on your website say 3000 lumens for 1.5 hours, but the runtime graph on the same page shows 3000 lumens for a minute or less. Which is correct?

Graph is kinda disapointing.
This huge flashlight cannot sustain 1000lm+ for more than an hour unlike other competitiors. :(

Thank you for catching "luems." :)

We have sent the question concerning the runtimes to the Fenix engineers. I'm sure they have a explanation for what the graph is indicating. We will post their answer here.
Thanks!

Here is the answer from the Fenix engineer:

"This is a common question. For those compact sized lights with high lumens, we have to find the balance between the lumens, heat dissipation and runtime.

We had a notice on the specs graphics. At the bottom of that page it says "*The Turbo output is measured in a total of runtime including output at reduced levels due to temperature or protection mechanism in the design." And all the specs we put meet the ANSI/PLATO FL1 standards.

The reason why 3000 lumens won't stay around for long is that the heat generated at the level of 3000lm will activate the built-in heat protection mechanism that automatically reduces output.

Please let us know if you have any additional questions."

Thx for the answer but my concern was why HIGH cannot stay 1000lumens at least throught battery life (LVP)?
Turbo is reasonable but competition won’t drop bellow 1400-1600lm after temp step down.

I bought this flashlight, tonight I made some clips and merged them into a video.
I have compared the PD36R with the new PD36 TAC I think this comparison could be useful to understand the differences in the beam of these two models.
Sorry, this video is not professional, the audio is in Italian and I have no software to write text in the video but it is easy to understand when I use the TAC version, it is the brightest one and has the flood beam.
