Ivo Shandor: The Flashtorch itself has three power modes and a 18,650 milliamperes per hour battery capable of delivering 10 to 40 minutes of continuous use depending the setting.You fail electricity. "18650" specifies the physical size of the lithium cell, not its capacity. If it were a measure of the capacity it would be mA multiplied by hours, not "per". And before anyone gets too excited about the awesome cooking power of this 100W flashlight, just remember that a 1960s Easy-Bake Oven was 200W.
FrancoFile: Just make sure that you melt the supports to the Quantum II Hyperdrive engine while the Hindmost is catatonic.
taurusowner: Eh I guess that could have it's uses, but I would be worried about the reflected light being too bright for practical uses. Maybe as a long range spot light, but for a handheld that might be too bright. I carry a 5.11 ATAC A1 as my go to handheld tactical light both off duty and on. It's 103 lumens and that's more than bright enough for searching rooms checking IDs, etc. I also carry a 5.11 UC3.300 "Light for Life" flashlight as a larger handheld that is great for searching outdoor, in fields, etc. It's 200 lumens at full power and the best feature is that it can charge from completely dead to full power in 90 seconds. I know there are brighter lights out there, but the 5.11 lights I have are lightweight, easy to carry, charge very very quickly and have been more than bright enough for my uses.This light seems like a neat toy, and if someone let me borrow one I would give it a try for a night or two. But I don't know about dropping that much money on another light. Plus the heat factor is a drawback to me. Having a light on for that long can cause a heat build up and make it hard to use, plus I would hate to turn it on, set it down on something, and end up burning or melting something by accident. Plus as a cop, the brightness could cause undue harm to myself, other officers, and people we come into contact with. That would be pretty shiatty to shine that light on some guy while checking his ID only to have it cause eye damage from being too bright. Again, a neat toy and probably some specific uses, but a little much for my line of work.
perigee: Yeah - overpowered and useless; 10 minutes on high power will get you nowhere. I'm a Fenix fan; TK 45 for regular use and an LD 22 in the bag.

Meanwhile my (now) anemic 60 lumen Surefire E2D has taken almost 10 years of work/carry abuse like a champ.
imfallen_angel: Stopped reading the moment I read halogen bulb.Seriously... any halogen bulb type light with enough power can brand you.
