Thats one Hell of a "flashlight."

I am looking to upgrade flashlights in all my vehicles, barns and home. THIS is ridiculous!HID Flashlight - Dual Mode - 7000' Beam - 4700 Lumen - 35/50 Watt HID - Larson Electronics

Melody Ranch... Is Texas big enough for a Turbo HID Flash Light? You are literally playing with White Lightening in a canister.

My wife is the culprit. When she sees the flash light lumens increased on the shelf at the impulse section at Costco... another flashlight. I do not know if I can handle anything brighter than a 1,000. I am afraid to open up the sealed pack. When does a flash light require a Concealed Flash Light permit?

You can never have too many LED flashlights or lumens ... especially when boondocking. I recently bought one that is rechargeable or CR123... it is great.

Love the Headlamps

Gave up flashlights awhile back. Headlamps with lithium batteries last forever. Some come with red lights which conserve battery and don't blind the people you are talking to. Like the versatility vs. flashlights.

Way off topic - sort of...
Why oh why do some campers ruin the velvety darkness with blazing porch/side lights at night? Please tone it down and direct the light FOR YOURSELVES.
And this is not from Streamers, I know. It is typically the 5ers and other campers with the sun on at night.
Thank you and now we return you to your thread topic...

ok, ok, now this is a big deal, flashlights are great but as a few others have posted, for we trailer peeps who need our hands to work, here is what I got in Oct.:


Here is the link for the "shootout"

Beam Test Comparison of Headlamps - OutdoorGearLab

It was not the brightest lamp in the romp but it has an overall feature set that is excellent. Red light, campsite setting- flood, hi setting- spot, uses standard AA batts and is waterproof.

Melody Ranchero, just get you one of these and you can wear it in all those vehicles! They might think you a miner or a Borg but hey, you certainly will have the light!

I never leave home without a variety of flashlights and headlamps. Mostly led's. I prefer the red lights, and like to have lights only as bright as necessary. However, I still carry my old Coleman lantern. It's an old hand-me-down from my dad. I think it's from the early '60s. It's inefficient, dangerous, and difficult to light, but it ties me to family camping trips when I was a kid. I'll never get rid of it.

This little baby is small, uses AAA batteries, and you could seriously land a plane with it, it is that bright.

Found this one at a marina, but they are widely available, for about $10.
