Okay, so those batteries are like $13 a piece or $150 a 10 pack.

That thing takes 5 and lasts how many hours minutes seconds?

Meh. I have 18650's from way back that have close to 500 recharges on them and are still going strong.

Airplane? Your thinking small.
Satellites or maybe even the ISS.

maybe I need one of those
some lights make noise when turned on, bet that one screams

The Ali-Express link shows them using it inside a tent camping!


They are exaggerating the light output claims a bit. From an LED supplier, http://www.led-tech.de/en/High-Power-LEDs-Cree/CREE-XM-Serie/CREE-XM-L-T6-Emitter-LT-1731_120_170.html
Minimum lumen per LED is 280 and max is 975. With 18 LEDs that would give you a range of 5,040 to 17,550 max lumens.


Boredom comes from a lack of achievable, yet challenging goals. If you're bored, it's likely you haven't created new goals for yourself lately, you've become complacent.

Consider what I said above about reflector depth though. Lumens are only half the equation contrary to what Surefire has led the market to believe. If it doesn't make candela like a car headlight, it will only seem bright up close. Lumens would be like a shotgun (spread), and candela would be like a rifle cartridge's round (distance).

If you had a 200 lumen 50,000 candela light and a 500 lumen 15,000 candela light side by side, you would pick the 200 lumen light as being brighter as the intensity is more focused. There's a balance, and most US manufacturers disregard it and sell based solely on lumens, just like with this 20,000 lumen light.


Good info easily explained!

Thanks.
