Brightest Spotlight?

I need a BRIGHT spotlight for my place out in the country.

I had a Cyclops Thor but the battery died. It was too big and bulky anyway.

I would like to do an Imulent Sr 32 but the $600 price tag is too much.

What are my alternatives are there?

Thanks

I need about 600-800 yards to see hogs out in my vineyard.

Hogs eyes don't shine very good, so I need to see them.

My budget is about $150- $200

Thanks!

I have one of those. I can mount it on any of my guns.

I need to be able to scan the field and vineyard.

I suggest night vision scope. There are videos of them in use on youtube, and the result is very good. Pricey, yes, but a superior tool, I think.

Convoy lights are a super value.

this in 6500K or 5000K:


..and four 26650 batteries from illumn


total cost under $120

add: 800 yards will not happen unless you use a dedicated/high quality LEP
I agree with Convoy being ideal. Not sure on the throw of the XHP70.2 I'd probably go SBT90.2, i.e.

Does anyone know anything about the BUYSIGHT or YIERBLUE. Both claim to have 1 million lumens.
LEDs currently top out around 250 lm/W, dropping down to perhaps 150 lm/W or even lower if driven hard (needed to get the small source required for a narrow beam). So to get a million lumens, you're looking at north of 5000W to the LEDs, which isn't realistic for something handheld. If, instead of a million lumens, we assume it's a million candela, you'd be around 10k lumens assuming an optical system that gets you 100 cd/lm (about a 4 degree beam). That drops you down to 100W to the LEDs, which is possible for something handheld, but not for very long.
And HID sources can drive more lumens into a smaller source than LED (good for bright, narrow beams), but are a bit less efficient at turning electricity into photons.

Thanks guys. This has been helpful.

Let me know if you have a suggestion.

Just last night, we had something or someone trigger a motion detector light out near the woods about 600 yards away. I did not have enough spotlight to see what it was.
