Easy? Chinese Lumens are never a constant figure. LOL

Damn, I made mistake when logging in your blog and now I’m blocked Facepalm

I was going to make the guesstimate of the amount of lumens, but I would say that it would be like… some “lumillions” or some gazillions of lumens coming out of those flashlights Big Smile Impressive collection Shocked

I am in, and thanks for the GAW Martin! Wink
I will do the guesstimate later, when I’m unblocked Tired

EDIT (2018-08-06): estimation submited Big SmileCool

Nice question Martin! Thanks for the giveaway

“I used to think that top environmental problems were biodiversity loss, ecosystem collapse and climate change. I thought that thirty years of good science could address these problems. I was wrong. The top environmental problems are selfishness, greed and apathy, and to deal with these we need a cultural and spiritual transformation. And we scientists don’t know how to do that.”   (Gus Speth)

I don't have enough relevant knowledge to accurately guess the number of lumens, so...

Congrats on 3000 members!

Thanx for the interesting giveaway, quite a unique entry method.

How about for bonus points, how many fall over if the GT is knocked to the left. Smile
Nah, couldn’t ask you to do that.

BTW it’s prize, not price.

Beam me up!
