now i know at least a few of you are Flashaholics here.  I have always liked to have the most powerful fashlight, but those cost money. all the years i had them 10000led flashlights, but they are not very bright, and cheap as hell. then i got one of those costco 160lumen lights, pretty damn bight, but the build quality was only on par with a chinese made car.  few weeks ago i asked about getting a light, and i did. this thing is crazy, 830 lumens. i can light my whole block, 200+ meters, lol

here's the light

That looks like a great light but I didn't see anything about how much it was. I was also wondering about battery availability.

I'd be interested in the rechargeable one, but does it work on US 110?

Ha, I got one of those for Christmas yesterday actually. Its a pretty sweet flashlight.

I also got two 18650 rechargeable batteries (and charger) to go with it.

I like that it has full on mode and eco mode.

I think my wife got it for something around $70 on Amazon, and I am pretty sure $15 was the exact price for the charger and batteries.

How wide is the beam? Does it light up a wide area well, or just a long distance?

It has more distance than panoramic lighting, but because of the amount of light it puts off, the peripheral areas are still lit.

Also, you can't adjust the beam, which is the only drawback to the flashlight.

I can't stand using adjustable flashlights.

I would argue otherwise.



I have three of those 4 battery cop flashlights. Their name escapes me at the moment.

it has good flood, (area it illuminates), and throw, (how far it can project the light(think spotlight)). this light can do 200meters no problem, 300 kinda works
