Finally got a high lumen light

This blows my modded maglite away, made by micro beam. 100 lumens, and cheap to, it comes with a neat lantern attachment, link at bottom.

Great peace of gear you got there  :salute: :tu: 100lm out of AA sounds good.  :salute:

I'm after 4Sevens Quark 123x2 Tactical with 230lm...

Now get a 2xAAA or 1xCR123A light ;) much higher output, and the CR123A lights are sometimes smaller than the single AA lights

Btw, I can almost guarantee that light isn't 100 lumen. Very few sites list actual OTF lumen count, and since that website doesn't even mention emitter type etc it's almost guaranteed to be highly overrated

Personally I have no need for higher output than the 132 lumens for my urban life, so enjoy your new AA light Agent X68..  :tu:

@edc gear, good luck on the hunt, nice light you are after.
@Andreas, I don't care about the lumens so much as long as it is as bright as I need it to be, which it is. It is definitely much brighter than my 30 lumen maglite.

Looks like a good quality light there for a decent price too.  I think 100 lumens or thereabout is just fine for most purposes.  I don't plan on flagging down aircraft with it or anything  :)

When do you plan on flagging down an aircraft? What do you plan on using? :D

Yeah I agree, the iTP A3 I have is probably only 50-60 lumens and that's engouh for me. I just mentioned it in case you were going after brand name lights in the future so you would know that a 80-100 OTF (out the front) lumen light is probably brighter than this one

Tint is much more important than output anyways IMO

I think 4sevens allways gives OTF lumens which is a lot brighter than bulb lumens given by other manufaturers

The only manufacturer who I know that does it is Surefire.

Indeed, 4Sevens also advertises OTF lumens.
