This will be my 2nd purchase of a mcgizmo creation.
I'll be using this light for my final walkaround at night in a warehouse after lights out. It'll be used just before i lockup at night. The wareahouse isn't huge. But when the lights are out it's dark nonetheless. There are certain parts with a slight bit of ambient lighting. (for legal reasons). But the main pretty dark.
The HD45 seems like a good light but it seems pretty big though. Plus I dont see a clip or anything, so pocket or even pants carry is probably too bulky. But it's still a consideration. I feel that the 27lt would probably be a nicer fit for me. Of course then there's the issue of the 3 watt of the 5 watt. I know the 3 watt throws better and the 5 watt has more light, but how much more light does the 5 watt produce and how much throw do you loose? I've never had a 5 watt LED before. So i've got no idea.
Any help on suggestions is appreciated. Feel free to ask me anything else you need me to in order to give a better recommendation. I'm leaning towards the 3 watt 27lt but i'd like to get your opions first.
Also, if i use a 17670 rechargeable instead of 2 primary cells, how much runtime do i loose?
Thanks in advance!
