I'd be very pleased with 3:15 on my cygolite NiMH HID - I think that's about what I got when it was new.
Point taken. Testing in real world conditions make more sense, anyway.

Edit: As I explain in this thread, my Cygolite died after about 18 months of use. The company wants $100 to $200 to replace the lamp and/or ballast. That's a rip-off.
