Any thoughts?


Take a gander at the Sure Fire P2X Fury.

Topped off the cells last night and did a quick side by side of CR123s, RCR123s and 18650 @ 3K mAh in the PD 32 @ claimed 315 max lumens....bottom line, indoors there does not appear to be any remarkable difference. I'll take them outside after the sun sets and check throw. I know it takes a good jump in output to be easily decernable, I didn't really notice that indoors.

Thanks Carl,

I switched over to the Candlepower forums and straight away found a thread comparing the torche I'm thinking of buying with three of four others.

Here is another possible consideration: http://www.candlepowerforums.com/vb/show...SHOTS-and-more!

Just one caution: Consider battery life and rechargers. At such high output, these things eat batteries like snacks. I have some high output lights that I use in a momentary operation ....just bursts of light, rather than full "on". That preserves battery life ...or extends battery life. There is nothing worse than a dead-output (formerly high-output) light when you need it.

Good luck, anyway......:)

I was going to reco. CPF as an info source but didn't know if it was PC to do so. That forum often comes up towards the top of most Internet flashlight searching, so I figured it to be an easy find.

I too use momentary over most constant-on...look for when purchasing or set my lights up for momentary-on if its a programmable light.

Batteries---recharables are convenient as long as you don't see keeping up with them and buying the charging system as inconvenient. Some say that's a hassle and replacing with disposables is easier for their needs. A few lights on the market recharge in a cradle, that's convenient or cumbersome depending on how you plan to use the light also.

I also am trying to keep this conversation easy to follow for flashlight neophytes. CPF can get technical and quick.

Flashlights are no longer a simple matter. They are very high-tech ....unless you just want an aluminum tube to store dead batteries. CPF, though technical (Like SRKW) is for junkies of the subject matter ...but good data can be had.

Ian, any luck finding one?

There's a brand available locally called LedLenser. They have been getting good reviews, I have one on the way.

A fella in Tassie on another forum has P17, something like the old MagLight baton/torch, for $70 posted on a local forum. It's not small, a foot long, 800 grams but has a beam range of 330 meters.
