    Runtime on P7 in Medium mode?

    Could anyone tell me what the run times and are on multimode P7 flashlights?On high it's about 60 min per specs.
    What is the approximate lumens as well? Based on other posters on high the best lumens is maybe about 500-600.

    more than 2hrs, more like 400lumens since 'high' is actually around 600~700lumens.
    Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)

    What kind of output are you getting in the Medium mode. I am try to figure out if the light output on the p7 medium is greater than my fenix l2d 180 lumens.

    Medium on my 5-mode is not very bright. About equivalent to L2D turbo or slightly less. I'd say 150lumens. The high is about 4 times brighter but shorter run time obviously.

    L2D high, turbo, MTE med, high

    It may vary depending on which P7 you get, but on the 8-mode (13060), it's brighter on medium than the L2D on turbo. You also get a longer battery life.

    How Much longer?

    I guess my only concern with getting the P7 over another fenix ld2 is run time and having to deal with a different battery and charger. I like fenix in that it uses traditional AA ni-mh. With the fenix I get about 1.50min run time which is all i need. I would only be using these lights for moutain biking fast fire roads. I am not sure if it's worth having to carry two types of batteries if the p7 is used in medium mode.

    What do you recommed?

    With regard to time, I got at least 3 solid hours on medium before it started to dim. At five hours, it was still on, but not nearly as bright. The battery and charger are only a big deal if you make them. I bought two batteries and a charger. I switch batteries every few days. I let the battery charge and unplug the charger when it's done. It really isn't hard.

    I really like 18650 batteries and might sell my Fenix L2D to get an 18650 based Q5 light.
