I agree or shut them down, I know several people that went out and spent $10-$20 to get what they thought was a high lumen light only to recieve a cheap $2.99 clone.

To be fair, I’ve see some non-english sites where they really did mean to type 800 and goofed and typed 8000. But yeah, most of that really does make me laugh.
I’m working on a “Real World Review” of a headlamp that made those sorts of claims right now. Much to my surprise it’s turning out to be a pretty decent headlamp, but no 8000 lumen barn burner.

Some light make outrageous claims… and then turn out to be okay and I find myself wondering why the manufacturers aren’t just proud of what their light ACTUALLY does
(case in point)

Tonights forecast, 100% chance of dark.

Well, I think that’ll be a good match for those “6800mah” ultrafire 18650’s

Edit: Forgot the smileys. Big SmileSilly

Do 18650 false claims max out at 9900mah?

(I think that's the highest I've seen.)

Looks like GTL managed to squeeze out a few more milliamps (not really):

I think they meant to put a decimal after the zero 120.00mah but someone in the printing department didn’t do their job. Angry
