    Default Why is it...

    That even with my SureFire 3P 260 Lumen Q5 LED light(with a warm R2 dropin on the way), I still find it more fun to carry and play with my Leef 4PD with a Lumens Factory E0-4?

    Hmmm....maybe the output? Isn't the Q5 about 60-80 lumens more output?

    Yeah, the E0-4 is rated at 190. Its bigger, hotter, more yellow, yet oddly satisfying!

    sometimes incan light is just more pleasant, more inviting, more immersive. Depends on the person.

    Incans provide a better color rendition outdoors at night for some people (like me).
    That is, of course, highly subjective so YMMV, etc...

    Practically, my eyes hurt from working outside with a low output led (and by that I mean anything lesser than a 200 torch lumen one) within a few minutes. Turning an incan on afterwards feels almost like a relief after enduring washed out colors, singular shades of green and grey-ish whites...
