The turbo level on hotrod lights like the D4 is mostly just intended for burst use anyway, not sustained use. So, ideally, it should only be used for short periods before the user manually sets it back to a sane level. It only takes a moment to see what’s off in the distance, or to make people nearby go “wow”.

Flashlights have reached an odd point in their development, where “brighter” is no longer synonymous with “more useful”. For general daily purposes, usually a couple hundred lumens is enough… and beyond that, the most important traits relate to the size and shape and interface and quality and stuff like that.

Has anyone measured how many lm does D4 make with 18350 tube and XP-L HI?
