Based on listed run times it will be about 288 Lumens on High and 120 on Low. Maybe slightly better than that IF the claimed maximum Lumens output is any where near the truth.
Many LED light makers seem to grossly exaggerate their output light levels however. They base their Lumens output listed on LED manufacturers maximum output ratings but do not drive the LEDs at the full current required for full light output and do not account for losses due to actual LED junction temperatures in their devices or for losses caused by reflection from lens surfaces.
