Need quick advice on floody multiple AA.

A friend is asked me for a recommendation but I haven’t been up to date with lights for about a year or more.

He wants something multiple AA powered with a floody beam.

It will be used to look in tanks and silos at his work.

It just needs to be simple to use (no complexed UI as multiple people may need to use it).

I’m not sure what the budget is but if people could make a few recommendations under $50 and over $50 it would be appreciated.

I’ll be going there in 3 hours to give him some options so hopefully I’ll have a few replies by then.

Thanks.

Thanks for the link, although its not what they are after.

I think they are after something 1000+ lumens, perhaps like the Nitecore EA81.

Or maybe a 4xAA

Thrunite TN4 hard to beat for the price and ease of picking one up. I've got one in NW, excellent light.

Thanks for the replies.

Just showed him some of the lights here, his budget is around $100 AUD ($70 USD).

He’s keen on the EA81 but will let me know tomorrow if his work will buy it for him or if they think its too much.

If I am not too late at this, Your friend may want to take a look at the Streamlight Propolymer 4AA model; there are two models, one with a single LED,and the other, with multiple. They both have a good reputation for light production, long run time, and are industrial rated. (I think)
The single LED is the thrower, and the multiple LED one is floody, so I hear. Rugged and inexpen$ive. (This is the Budget Light Forum, right? Smile He could buy about two of them for the price of another light.

That model used to come up a lot in the discussions, back when I used to lurk the CPF forums (circa 2009)!

Haven’t seen it mentioned lately. Has it been updated since then? Glasses

Probably too late now but it seems most of the 4AA lights seem to feature more throw than flood.

If you like, I have some diffusing film (designed for office windows) which I've fitted to a couple of torches for use as bike lights.  It's probably not DC-Fix quality but it seems to work OK.  I don't have a proper way of testing for transmission losses.

I'd be happy to cut a bit off and post it to you if you want to try it.

Yep, that’s when I was on CPF a lot. I kinda doubt it’s changed…it wasn’t broke, so, Streamlight didn’t fix it! Smile I was about ready to buy one, then I got a deal on a $25 Jetbeam PA40, :bigsmile: and didn’t need it any more. Buuuut….maybe I could use just one more light! :8) Honest, I can quit whenever I want to!

Flashlight designers should look at lighthouses and pottery.
这些谁设计的手电筒应该看灯塔,以及在陶器。
