All,

I really would like some help deciding between the Acebeam Tk18 and the Fenix LD30

Both seem great have good stats, but obviously the TK18 is better (Lumens and Candela).

I just wonder are the numbers true and does the reputation of Fenix outweigh the performance of the Fenix.




Thank you! This is my first thread, so take it easy. haha

Hello and welcome to CPF

Your post above has been approved, but the thread was moved to LED Flashlights

.... This is my first thread, so take it easy. haha

I realize that you are new here, but the following comment is meant for others too, who are starting new thread topics .... please try to use the most specific applicable subforum for a topic, whenever possible.

If your topic applies to LED Flashlights, use that. If it is about incandescent flashlights, use that. If it deals with inexpensive "budget lights" well there is a forum for that, too.

Otherwise, about 99% of the threads here could end up in "General Flashlight Discussion" which would be a confusing mess.

Thanks and cheers ! :)

Not sure if I'd agree that "more lumens and more candela" are necessarily better, even if true. That would depend on the specific purpose of your illumination .... What do you plan to use this to see ?

Your closing question(s) are reasonable, and others here may be better able to address those than I.

I'm sure you will get plenty of advice on that soon ;)
