I have my Surefire E2DL. Fantastic, love it. It is 200 Lumen. I wanted a light that would well out perform the E2DL. I bought a Tiablo ACE 700 Lumen. It should be 4 times brighter. I do not get the holy crap, that is much brighter than my little E2DL feeling. It is a little bit brighter.
Am I looking at lights the wrong way? Ultimately I am looking for a helicopter search light brightness but obviously can't afford the HID's.
