    Default Quark AA Titanium Question

    I recently purchased an AA Titanium Quark.
    How many levels did they have?
    This one has 2. My regular Quark AA has 3 or 4 levels.

    Will it handle a 14500?

    Thanks.
    I choose to carry a flashlight because I am often kept in the dark.

    • Modes: Regular has 8 output modes (2 with tightened bezel, 6 with loosened bezel). Tactical will also come in 8 possible output levels, but in a single programmable mode for each bezel state.
    • Regular has a reverse clicky switch, recessed to allow tailstanding. Tactical versions with have a protruding forward clicky
    • Regular comes on Moonlight (bezel loosened) or Turbo (bezel tightened) with no mode memory.
    • Quark AA: Uses 1 x AA alkaline / NiMH rechargeable / 3.7V 14500 battery (0.9V~4.2V)

    The above explanation is from one of Selfbuilt's reviews. -#1

    The Quark you purchased is a regular. Try loosening the head and giving the switch a few half presses. I think you'll discover the answer to your question.

    Enjoy.

    Addendum: There's always a possibility you have a regular tail-switch (flush not proud) attached to a tactial head. Some of these lights, sans numbers, were constructed from spare parts. Mine has a tactical switch and a regular head.

    Never point a flashlight at anything you don't intend to illuminate! Never buy a flashlight you have to make payments on.

    Flush tail switch.
    Blue button.
    No Serial number.
    Head loose, low. Head tightened high.
    Does not respond to half presses with head tightened or loosened. (I have a aluminum Quark AA, so I am familiar with the operation.)
    If it is a tactical, would that just be low and high controlled by tightening and loosening the head only?

    Edit:
    It is a tactical. I found programming instructions.

    Yes on the 14500.
    Max voltage is 4.2V on the Low Voltage Quarks

    I hope my efforts to assist you proved somewhat helpful.

    Yes you did help. It led me to determine that it is a Tactical head with a regular switch.

    One strange thing about it, with the head tight, I can only program it to low or medium. With the head loose, I can program any mode. So I set it up tight is medium and loose is turbo. Backwards from my regular, but whatever works I guess.
