Don't forget - the visible light we see is actually being produced by phosphors being stimulated by the actual LED emitter. I would guess that, due to variances in the phosphor makeup, some of the phosphors are slower in giving up all their energy than others after being hit for a while with 1,000 lumens. I have noticed the same phenomenon on my TM16. It is obvious the LED is off, but there is a dimming glow for about a short second.BTW, did anyone ever figure out why the TM16 takes so long to turn its LEDs off? 1 of the 4 LEDs in mine takes noticeably longer than others, but they all basically dim out instead of just turning off.
