    (Also, the lumen levels of the lights my flashlighting history can be plotted on a graph that looks nearly identical to the chart in your signature (with, of course, time replacing post count on the x-axis).)
    Cheers

    Ok so these lights can be converted to single level. When it's a DIY operation (i.e. Foil / copper insert) what level will it be set to? Or these lights can be sent back to peak to be tuned to a particular level?

    It will revert to the full output level of that particular light engine ... for stock (non-custom) lights, that would be #8 , or maximum.

    No, Peak cannot change the level afterwards, as the electronics are potted.

    Can anyone tell me the resistance of the different levels?
    I want to get one that puts out somewhere between 1 and 10 lumens as a backup light. Will 0 be to dim?

    Thanks, I had seen that after I posted.
    I am working on ordering a subzero el captain and I will share output and runtimes after I get it.

    I just got home from a road trip and my subzero was in the mailbox.
    It came with a kirkland brand alkaline battery inside, like my other peaks. if you might be away make sure someone checks your mail for you as I have had these batteries leak in other flashlights before but I have had no problems with peaks.
    Anyways the flashlight seems to put out about 8 lumens... more than I expected but still usable as it should still give a fairly long runtime and output will drop with the voltage.
    Here it is with the 1.6 volt alkaline next to a high CRI HDS rotary on level 16. I will start runtime test soon..

    I cannot see the image you posted. It probably requires one to login to Google or somesuch for viewing.

    That should be fixed now, google keeps changing settings.
    Anyways I did a runtime test of 36 hours and the battery was at 1.13 volts after. It was surprising as the flashlight was still giving off a fair amount of light and I could not tell if it has dimmed much.
    This should make a great backup flashlight as a pack of batteries would be worth months of light, plus as it has no problems starting at lower voltages it should make a great joule thief for scavenged batteries.
