Anyone Know Anything About Torches?

Recommended Posts

What does Lumens mean?

 

Looking at a led Maglite which says 134 lumens, then looked at some cheap Chinese shit that said 1000 lumens at half the price :hmm:

Which is brighter?

A lumen is the unit of light flux. Basically it's how intense the light is. So the higher the lumen the 'brighter' the light.

No problem cheers.

Was just wondering with the price difference if the lower the number the better :blink:

Depends how accurate each of the quoted figures are. I'd put money on the Chinky one being a bit of an exageration.

 

Also beam width, if you only have a real tight beam not a lot of power is required to get that bright because all the power is concentrated in a small beam.

 

What about build quality and battery life? Usually the batteries where the value is.

Was the cree torches that said 100 lumens. Ive had a few before, they are bright but build quality is shite, go through a couple a season.

So was looking at the maglites etc for better quality.

 

Don't want to spend 30 odd quid and its a heap of shit :laugh:

I swear by the Chinese makes they are so much better at a cut of the price cree is the make of the led not the torch so bear that in mind pal and yes they mainly use 18650 battery's which are better too
