I use one-digit-dollar flashlights when I was very young and haven't used such a stuff for years. I got interested in flashlights worth dozens of dollars because friends around me often talk about them. I wonder why the stuffs are so attractive to my friends, so registered here for some answers.

Here is a flashlight i found yesterday (http://www.tinydeal.com/led-torch-px29fw--p-5940.html), and the following are my questions:
1. What are advantages of LED material. 2. What does 7 LED mean -- is it a slip of pen? 3. From my friends, I know a flashlight's lightness is denominated by lumen, so please talk about it. 4. The product referred accordingly can be charged with DC 12V and then charge some Nokia and Samsung USB devices, but can such a small thing has this capacity?

The final question is: why do you spend dozen or even hundreds of dollars on just a flashlight? Thanks in advance.

Personally, i like a bright WHITE light. the smaller and lighter the better. not quite sure of the specifics you asked but i can offer you this.

I have never liked the light out of the LED's.
It's just not a natural bright, white light.

Flashlights? Did I hear someone mention flashlights?

I went from 1997 to 2009 with only the 1 Scorpion Light (approx $32 at the time)and a couple of handgun lights (that I later sold) , and had no urge to buy anything else.

I bought a $50 Inova XO3 in the summer of 2009, when I saw pics of people's carry gear, and noticed a lot of people carrying lights (and I remembered a few times when having one would have been handy).... That lasted me until the beginning of 2010. I bought 2 more Inovas for rifle mounting... Then, I discovered Candle Power Forum around April 2010, and then I was done for...

This is what I have now...

Here:





01. Coleman Max 110 Lumen Flood/Spot AAA LED
02. C30 Spot to Flood 110 Lumen AAA LED
03. Solarforce L2m with small bezel - R2 Solarforce Drop-In

Wouldn't you go to a flashlight enthusiast site to ask these type of questions?

Wow. I think you are the first person, that is not a tweaker, that I have met that has that many flashlights.
