Propably the brightest flashlight there is. I have already the 35 W version (costed twice as much) and that ome was already a laserbeam-like fotoncannon. This 45-65-85 Watt version is more than twice as bright, the prommised 8500 lumens is not exaggerated.
Hid can be more easily collimated (the lightsource itselfe is very tiny) than leds, only recoil ledlamps have that kind of collimatoin but they deliver 200-300 lumens, so 20-30 times less than this HID light.
All the HID (flash)lights become very hot, the glass glows after run so 600-800 centigrades for the bulb makes it a lamp for proffesional users with knowledgment of the habits of HID. More a warning than a con....
The batterypack is not very easy to use and short circuit can easily be obtained. The power of Li Po works fine with the power of the HID, so a long operating time can be reached.
Don't restart the lamp when the HID is not cooled down, it can explode.
A search and rescue-light of high quality. For daily use an overkill. So a good led T60 flashlight and this light for emergency will cover your need for light outdoor. For flashlight freaks and diehards, a must have ant particular this one, because it gives the most in time and brightness.
