I just think we need to appreciate what they’ve done with an XHP50. Maybe when prices come down on XHP99 emitters, we can all enjoy a megalumen zoomer.

This should be a really good one, 4 stars after 323 reviews.

A 999900000LM Zoomie…

Looks like the record has been broken by an order of magnitude or 2.

Over 999 million lumens!

Ok, according to random person on the internet’s math there are 17.5 million trillion lumens that hit the earth from the sun.

(There’s many times more lumens that fly off into space, so the sun isn’t very efficient and could do with a reflector or TIR for better run time. There’s also no lumens at night.)

Compared to the world’s brightest flashlight (officially 999 million lumens according to this thread),
17.5 million trillion lumens from the sun is still 57 million times brighter!

Maybe in a few years LED technology advertising will advance and we’ll have flashlights brighter than the sun.

Edit: I wonder if these flashlights emit more lumens than the amount that hit the earth reflected off a full moon.

Not lumens, but I found something from Home Depot with an unrealistic claim.

I wonder how many lumens a space shuttle launch was. They were very bright at night.

Reminds me of when I bought a 5 megawatt laser pointer for £2. Turned out they meant mW, not MW.

I present for your consideration the 90 trillion volt stun gun flashlight. Imagine the turns ratio on that transformer.

It's a good thing it's called a Terminator, because a 90 trillion volt stun gun would kill you!

I think the person handling the taser will die/fry too. Voltages that extreme will most likely arch to the hand of the one that holds it.
Most likely only the person that holds the taser will die because the power draw is so extreme, the battery will overload and explode in a split second when turned on. Smile

A typical lightning bolt is only 300 million volts. The clouds got nothing on a chinese stun gun.

12000mah


I believe it’s from a HKJ review.


Looks like a rewrap of this cell which HJK rated “very bad”. Harsh judgement if you ask me, because it delivers a whopping 45 mAh at 5 amps Smile
The brand name is the best of it all. In my language GIF means poison Smile

I’d be interested in this if there’s a 18350 tube.

Interested. Can you get get an 18350 tube for this light?

But assuming it doesn’t explode in a fireball when I turn it on, when my idiot neighbor saw it he’d have to get one too and I’m afraid he’d set my house on fire trying to see in my teenage daughter’s window.

On the plus side, it probably would stun your attacker. I know I’d sure be stunned if the person standing in front of me suddenly combusted in a thunderous explosion.
