I just started understanding the difference between "regular" lights and the high quality, purpose driven lights you folks figured out already. I am a CPF lurker mostly, generally because I don't know enough to ask reasonable questions yet. Anyway, I read here about a website (it is apparently Japanese) where they sell a bunch of lights and batteries and a bunch of other stuff, including intimate garments. My question is about the lights, not the garments. The lumen ratings are crazy big on brands of lights that I've never seen mentioned here. They also carry some lights that have been discussed positively here. So, is there an 8000 lumen flashlight for $150? Or are lumens like mens height and belt sizes, where no one ever tells the truth? I would like to own a couple REALLY bright handheld lights, but I don't want to end up with duds. Which I guess leads to the second question, which is in the budget range of the nitecore TM26, is there anything better or brighter that I should be looking at? Thanks for wading through all that, I look forward to your feedback.
