  • Robust high power Flashlight

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:

    Extreme light emission. Brightness is similar to a single Cree T6 flashlight, but the eluminated surface is 5 times bigger. This is very helpfull when searching something outside or in industry.
    Very rubust and nice housing, if the interior has the same quality, then this is a perfect flashlight. Very positive too, this flashlight does not heat up.
    Explanation below.

    Cons:

    This hight light emision needs a lot of batterie.
    With 3,6 A batteries fully charged at max power, the runtime is less than 2 hours. Measured current on my flashlight is 6,2 A (Advertised 5 A).
    With 23 Watt you can expect 2200 - 2500 Lumen with Cree T6 and not the 4000 advertised Lumen.
    The switch should have a memory.

    OtherThoughts:

    If a Cree T6 is really used with an 2,5 - 2,8 A regulator, it can emit above 1000 Lumen, but lifetime is very short then, because of the heat.
    Therefore I expect a very good lifetime of this flashlight, 1,2 A pro Cree T6 at max power
    = 450 - 500 Lumen pro Cree T6.

    Bottomline:

    If once used, you never want to change back to a single emitter flashlight.
    You should avoid to flash direct into the eyes of somebody, except if you use the flashlight as weapen. If you have unwanted visitors on 2 or 4 legs, this flashlight at surprise has a paralysing effect.
    Perfect if you use it for the purpose it has been built.
