Just curious about something. I know the high setting for the Tri EDC is 700 lumens. But can anyone tell me what the Med and Low are rated as? Thanks.

So 700, 140, and 35 respectively. Nice range indeed. I realize that you can never actually leave it on high long enough for the batteries to drain due to heat. However, I'm assuming that's not the case with the lower settings. Anyone know what the run times for Med and Low are?

From a Ultrafire 18350 I got ~20 mins on high (in 4x5min bursts). Theoretically, you should get 5 times that in medium, or 50 times that in low. So 1hr 40 mins in medium or 16.6 Hours in low.

I'd go with round numbers and think of it at 20 mins, 1.5 hours and 15 hours.

Hello mvyrmnd. I agree with your numbers.

FYI, my runtime tests on high with 7x3 minute bursts achieved over 21 minutes using the Ultrafire 18350s. At the 22 min. 44 sec. point, the light started flickering and I shut it off right away. My rather unscientific estimate of usable battery capacity for such uses on high = 900 to 1000 mah. For my use as an EDC, this is exactly what I want --- start out in high; followed by me clicking it to medium if I want.
