At 400,000 lumens, this flashlight is probably much brighter than any one you’ve experienced before. This is not your grandfather’s camping flashlight.
For one, it uses LEDs, rather than that old incandescent bulb in gramps’ cheap tin model. LEDs are directional, meaning they output almost all their light in a straight line. You get focused beams of light, rather than a weak, dispersed glow.
The XHP 90.3 LEDs emit the equivalent of a 4500-watt bulb. Not 45. 4500. With an adjustable focal length, you can illuminate wide swaths in front of you or focus a beam 500 meters out.
In a tactical situation, that is more than enough to blind an attacker. Those key moments can mean the difference between death and survival.
