It's really big!!
It's really big!!
It looks like a really deluxe spotlight! It must have a laser like beam. This HID spotlight looks neat too: http://www.cabelas.com/prod-1/0057352518098a.shtml

That sunforce looks pretty cool with the unique design but dang it also looks almost unuseable with its size!!!!! Thats rediculous.....lol you'd bout have to pull that thing on a cart. I cant believe how big it is. I wouldnt want it personally. I like the size of the pob. Most of the others are way too big for what I need a spotlight for.
thats the first light ive seen to use a "exaggerated BS lie" 40million candlepower rating.
you would need a wheelbarrow to transport it around.
I agree flashanator, wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy too big to be practical and wayyyyyyyy too expensive too.
my mega illuminator + 4.2kg SLA I put in 4 longer runtime is way heavier then this light & about same size.
Need to the Hulk to hold it.
I was going to buy the 40mcp, but I decided to get the Coleman 530 lumen LED Spotlight instead, and it is amazing. It has 3 CREE XR-E LED emitters, each with their own reflector, and has a VERY impressive beam!
That light looks awesome, I really like the spotlight/stand configuration. But yeah it is pretty HUGE. I wonder what the quality of the reflector is like.
I have another sunforce model and the reflector is very good quality.
Did anyone notice the cable going from the reflector housing to the battery housing? It begs to get lost or tangled when in use.
Yeah i noticed the cord. didn't like that either. Need a trypod to use it looks like lol.
I looked at this light at CES last year -interesting concept but it was just SO big and heavy and the power cord connecting battery to reflector section needed to be plugged in for it to operate - it was just too unwieldy.

Sorry for bumping an older thread....
I was just looking at the picture on the website of the person holding it and it appears that the light is actually slightly in front of him and at a side angle to the camera, so it appears much larger than it actually is (just my observation). I just went and simulated this with my Pro's Favorite in front of the mirror and it actually looked larger than the Sunforce 40mcp.
The 40mcp Sunforce does look like an awesome light and I just thought this was an interesting find about its possible size.

Any idea on the color temp of the bulb on this? I think I'd stick to BatteryJunction's Mega Illuminator but it's always good to see what else is out there.
1) Neutral white, it's the new black. Heck, it's not even "new" anymore.
2) User Interface... KISS.
3) Proprietary cells and battery packs - Just say NO!
In the picture where it is on it appears blue like 6000K.
I agree Xeray,
And why even bother with this joke, when the Ti Mega is such a genuine product.
Ah yes the "miracles" of modern nonsense....errr..."science"....
I think my 800,000,000 CP light is accurately rated. Well, maybe a little off due to the reflector being less than 100%.
