Is this FlashLight for real?

Recommended Posts

Mr.Puss
Forgive me that this isnt exactly completely bike related, but I had to post this thing somewhere. Extreme overkill roadside night light? or perhaps melt someone's eyeballs? Yes indeedy sir! Futhermore, what better way to protect oneself from terrorism than with a flashlight? ;)

Never seen the torch in question but some of the led lights on pedal cycles can be a bit painful.
Surprising what can cause damage we had to remove a alarm from work as it supposedly had the ability
to kill if trapped in the room with it, it was painful and no one would stay near it.

I'm a big advocate of combat flashlights. Arguably the Cadillac of them are the highend SureFires although they are very pricely.  The one I like as far as bang for the buck is the Fenix - more specifically the PD35. In low light conditions the PD35 will easily temporarily blind a bad person long enough for you to get away. You can get them at places like REI on discount making them relatively cheap ($60-$70). I've owned several Fenixs - they work well!
 
BTW, for all of you mechanic-type folks, THE biggest reason to have a super power light like these is for when you drop a small part on the floor, and you just can't seem to find it. Murphy's Law dictates that the lost part will prevent you from riding. These high power flashlights light up that floor, and make it SO easy to find that lost part!

Looks just like the $15 ones on eBay and usually "quality" led flashlights has specially designed reflectors and don't use a magnifying glass. I have to agree with Fenix lights being a great option. I've got their 630 lumen light that can cause permanent eye damage.

I happen to be a bit of a flash light freak so you have my attention. It looks nice, good features and powerful but it doesn't say how many lumens it is. If it's no more than the ones I'm about to show then I feel it's over-priced unless there's something I'm missing.

I feel you take your chances with the quality of such lights all over the market that are made in China but the last one I bought for bike riding turned out to be pretty nice.

@beemer Hmmm For some reason I've never really looked into flashlights before and nor have I ever known anyone to claim to be a flashlight freak ;)   This thing was the brightest I've seen. Good links guys! ....yet another thing to research, HEH, guess I got little excited. Now I gotta spend more money. ;-|

No biggie. You probably know a lot about other things that I know very little about. Ever since I used to water the lawn with my grandpa in prep for earthworm catching later in the evening I've been hooked on flashlights since they were so helpful at night. If you get to looking at them a lot you'll notice a wide variety of them for different purposes. I'm partial to the head lantern type because I usually like having my hands free and they shine wherever you look.

Many years ago my dad picked up a flashlight from a co-worker who was a SWAT personnel. That thing was ridiculously bright, like these tactical lights but I guess that's before it was an easily obtainable product.
 
Only drawback was that the lens could get really hot and batteries were some specialty ones that were $20 a pop and it took 3.
 
Still going strong and he still likes to occasionally blind me when I'm not paying attention.

I got one that I use for mountain biking on evening ride. There's 4 settings from 400 to 1800 lumens. The battery is about 2x2x3" in size but get about 4hrs on low setting and 1.5hr flat out.
 
1800 lumens is extremely bright going 20 mph. lol My buddy use one on his handlebars and another one on his helmet.

Actually, I just realized I don't have the Fenix PD35. I have the UC35

Just what I have at home. I keep the Streamlight Strion LED in my wife's car and the Fenix UC35 in my bike trunk. I have another Fenix UC35 at work, and a Streamlight Night Com LED with integrated red laser pointer and UV Black light.

This is the flashlight I bought around 6 years ago. Still works like brand new, great output for its size. They have a newer model with greater output as well.
 
Their website has a lot of cool mil spec gadget type stuff with great quality.
