Hey there friends I gotta tell you I have no knowledge with lights so I can to the pros, you guys!
Looking for a torch that has 500 lumens that can last for 5 hours. I am not looking for an EDC light I'm just going to put it in my car for any car issues at night.
Cheers!
James

If possible I want the torch to not be a big bulky thing, maybe 7 inches if possible and I have no price range just throw everything you got at me!:laughing:

A Maglite LED conversion comes to mind. Except that it will most likely have to be longer than 7 inches. But with the capacity of D sized NiMh cells being what they are you could hit 5 hours of continuous 500 lumens. Just remember though. 500 lumens at initial start up does not equal 500 lumens after 5 hours of use. More like 300 or less lumens due to heat and loss of capacity. A pair of 2S lithium Polymer packs wired in parallel and a short fat bodied light would have more than enough capacity but it would need to be a custom build. No one offers those that I know of.
