I need a minimum of 2500 lumens. I need the light to actually set my adversary's clothing on fire.

Enough lumens?

Don't know much about powerful flashlights, but I know of a powerful handheld pointing laser that will literally set your adversary's clothing on fire.

Jetbeam DDR

300 to 3000 lumen with a digital read out for battery life

Built in charger. Get a good 18650 battery with it.

Picked one of these up a while back, pretty impressive on brightness, throw, and flood.

I agree with something over 2K lumen and you absolutely want a light that runs off multiple 18650 batteries.

THIS is an excellent option and has big power output. The brand has 100% satisfaction and everyone loves everything they put out, including myself.

ANOTHER excellent option if you want something more compact. I have owned this light myself for several years and it's amazing. It's a small compact powerhouse and puts out a wide throw of light equal to the sun! Batteries last for what seems like an eternity before needing a recharge.

When you purchase batteries I would get 18650s in the 3400mha size, they will last for weeks before needing a charge, although considering your usage, I would charge once a week minimum. Don't buy any batteries with "fire" in the brand name, they are shit.

Saw this. Maybe someone can try this and give a review.

Just got a fenix pd32 at work. Runs on 18650 batteries and is plenty bright. They make them with even higher lumens. Only problem is it's so small it heats up pretty quick. Has thermal protection so it reduces output after a set time.

It's like a flashlight, but with less potential bullet magnet effect.

I just got a Nitecore SRT6 Night Officer for my new duty light. It is about the same size as your old Surefire, but way brighter, with infinite variable brightness and strobe. It fits in my leather Surefire holster, so I didn't need to buy any new gear.

Like this:

I got it from DinoDirect for like $75 though.

Anything from Surefire with a 500+ lumen output. Also, bear in mind that output ratings vary from brand to brand, so a 200 lumen light from Surefire isn't going to be the same as a 200 lumen Walmart special.

Great light. I have the SRT7 more bells and whistles great for hunting probably get in the way of law enforcement use.

Excellent construction/durability
Fantastic interface, power modulation
Neutral white (I always require this!)
Bright as fuck
Weapon mountable

I have used the earlier model for several years and it fucking rocks.

I'm holding out for something in a Surefire E2 size package that has the lumens and throw of WWII German air defense search lights.

Thanks--I needed that! LOL

Just got a Fenix PD35 this week. Very bright beam with a lot of spill. Works pretty well for doing rounds in a dark prison dorm. Was looking hard at the PD32ue and the Thrunite TN12 also. Next I will be looking for a dedicated thrower. So far i am pretty sold on the Armytek Predator v2.5 G2.

How does 4000LM for $82 grab ya?



4x18650, 3xXM-L2 U2 1A, T6-3C, or T6-4C tints and 7 modes, including firefly/moonlight!

You no longer have to shoot anybody, just burn their eyeballs out.

when you start looking at the small format lights putting out 2000+ lumens, heat quickly becomes the enemy. They may do the quoted power but step down really quick. Might want to look at lights in the 900-1200lumen range instead. I use a fenix and like it but there are many good ones in that power range. I think you might find that something in the 1000lumen range fits the bill perfectly. Plenty of light to blind someone temporarily from 50 yards and enough light to light up targets clearly out to an honest 200-300yards.

Think I'm leaning towards the Surefire P2ZX Fury.

I like Surefire stuff.

High Intensity Discharge. I vote Firefoxes FF4. 6000 lumens max, 60+ minute run time on the 4000 lumen setting. Very small 4X 18650 light.

This.

How many lumens does it take to light up everything, in every direction, even distant mountains, like gen 3 nightvision does?
Link Posted: 10/6/2014 5:49:20 PM EST
I've had a bunch of different lights, including some incredibly bright, 5000 lumen monsters. I've sold off most because they weren't really practical. I've kept an Eagletac G25 MKII. It's bright as hell, and I've taken it apart completely and it's built like a tank. The biggest drawback on mine was shitty anodizing that chips easily. It is stupid bright for the size. I would also recommend anything by Thrunite, Niwalker and Zebralight. I have a Zebralight headlamp that has survived everything including night snorkeling for crayfish without a hitch. I had a Thrunite TN32 that had flawless construction, really impressive. I hate to say it, but the specialty Chinese light manufacturers are on top of their game.
