Hell, I got a sunburn from looking at the ad.

Slathering on the Noxzema as I’m typing this…

Don't forget, it's the upgraded 2021 version if you want the full 125 billion lumens, not the 2020 version

Good point. If you order this and it only looks like 99 million lumens then they probably tried to use up old stock and gave you last year’s model.

You can double check with an integrating sphere: turn the flashlight on and point it at the sphere from 6ft and make sure the sphere has evaporated fully.

That’s not bad, 999 billion lumens from a Xml-2 emitter… I’ll have to pick one up for taking out the trash at night.

The other one has an XHP120 though…this is a tough choice.

Almost there. Just a bit more lumens, thanks.

The only thing better than 8 minute abs is 7 minute abs.

Why bother? Just light it up and incinerate it in-place.

Amazing, too, the miracle of modern science…

They manage to squeak out “9999900000000LM” from a “Powerful 1200 Lumen LED”.

Mind = blown.

Act now and we will double the offer. These prices are so low we are practically giving it away.

That's exactly why one has to be careful not to get fooled into buying old stock. We need to make the noobs aware of this so they don't get confused.

Just shy of one trillion lumens, not good enough.
