    Anyone else into flashlights

    No, NOT fleshlights.....FLASHlights.

    With that out of the way...

    I recently discovered the joys of a good flashlight (it arrived yesterday) and have already ordered two more. Last time i bought a flashlight, it was off/on. The Big features were that the maglite also had the variable "focus", and you could beat someone with it. I now have a headlamp (great for working on cars!!) that's 700 lumen. That's >15x brighter than the 3x D-Cell maglite! And it fits on my head!!! Plus there are modes, menus, even firmware updates for these bad boys.

    One of the next ones (already ordered) is something like 4000 lumens and i've seen a video of someone using it to light their cigar

    Anyways, just wondering if there were any others of you out there who wanted to talk shop!

    (I have too many collector hobbies...but that's a problem money can easily solve! Next one will be a mechanical keyboard, incoming before the holidays, hopefully)

    I'm not into flashlights, per se, but I do have a powerful one that lights up the house at the opposing end of the street. (I don't know exact distance, but extremely far for the naked eye.) I always carry a flashlight on my person as well, a Streamlight Microstream.

    A flashlight powerful enough to light a cigar, though?! Can you please find the video and post it? That sounds... intense!

    Re: Anyone else into flashlights

    Alright, so I carry that Streamlight Microstream, which is 45 lumens.



    I also have about 5 or 6 of these Lil Larry lights as well, which are 250 lumens. (I have one of these mounted on my bicycle.)

    I'm trying to find out now what the name of the large flashlight is called. There's no indication anywhere on the exterior. It has an 18,650 Kanyo long battery inside and is also rechargeable with a hidden, waterproof micro USB port. (I'm jumping through some insane hoops trying to find a picture of it. )

    Dude...you have a camera! It's dark. Go take some pictures! And then one inside of the flashlight itself.

    I now own THREE 18650s and one 18350.

    I can't do that unless I want police showing up at my door. People here are fucking retarded. My street is also a main street where there is traffic cutting through from two other main roads. Here's what you do get, though:

    Wow, well if that's only ~700 lumens and it projects to the other end of the street, I can't fathom what your 4,000 lumens flashlight's brightness is like in person.
