FYI: I thought I’d let you know of a really REALLY powerful flashlight that I have purchased that out illuminates the competition. Although I admit I have not tested all of the others, just the info provided has others beat.
I was intrigued by an ad by a well known wood tool website (G*) that boasts a 700 lumen flashlight for sale. These are not inexpensive so I thought I’d do a search on what is out there. Glad I did! I found a source from NJ who is a self proclaimed “Flashlight Fanatic” and he has done some work in getting a quality product out.
I chose one of the models that gives out 1000 lumens. The one I purchased is one of the newer models and it is NOT WIMPY! The light is as bright as a car head light and the flashlight only weighs 6.2 oz (w/o battery). They do take a special battery that you purchase seperately, but it’s worth the costs to get a quality item that will last. You can get regular or high performance batteries and they are all rechargeable (You must use the re-chargers being sold, but can use other batteries in this unit). Read the info provided so you understand the product. http://shop.monsterflashlight.com/1000-Lumens-Max-Tactical-Flashlights_c7.htm
Since I have moved out to the woods, things are a bit dark (and creepy) so, now, if someone or something is out there at night or if we have a blackout we’re ready!
I am finding that all the other flashlights in the house are JUNK and will end up in a give-away box as soon as I get them replaced.
