Ok guys I did the best I could with my camera phone, I set the ISO @200 if that makes any difference......

Good stuff, they don't give you as much of an idea of the differences as a camera with manual shutter speed, but every little bit of info helps. I make out the reflector to be closer to 70mm, but that's still massive; here comes the SST-90 mods..

I tried leaving the ISO on auto, but it overexposed the shots really bad. The shots I posted are still a little overexposed, but you can still see the differences in the output of each light. Overall I really like this little guy, it out throws my TK60 pretty good so I'm pleased with it. I let it run for 20 minutes plugged into the 12v socket and it got pretty warm but no problems with it so far.

A very interesting spotlight. It's ironic, but I was at Walmart tonight unaware of this thread and seen a new waterproof Stanley spotlight that had a XPG in it. It looked to be a little smaller than the fatmax and was rated at 500 lumens. Even 500 led lumens from a XPG has my doubts. Glad I didnt buy it. Gotta buy myself a fatmax now.....

Thanks for the shots! As long as they're all shot with the same settings you get a good idea of the differences.
I have a TK41, so the TK60 shot gives me a reasonable reference point. Very speedy posting too!!:thumbsup:
Fingers crossed for Walmart Canada!

Thanks again!

They already have an XPE, XPG, and now the XML spotlight, all they need now is to release a SST-90 version.:naughty:

Hate the look and it's to big and awkward.

I could justify buying the Stanley HID because Of its lumen output but not this light

Stanley hid pros:high luman output and far throw.

stanley hid cons:its heavy, has an sla battery, 8000k bulb, takes a long time to charge, may not hold a charge when you by it. (my stanley hid lasted about 6 months and died.)



stanley Fatmax pros: high luman for a led light. far throw for an led light, warmer color light ,lithium lon batteries, 6 hour charge time. two output modes, smaller and lighter then stanley hid, cheeper then stanley hid

Stanley Fatmax cons: little top heavy but not to bad, less output and throw the stanley hid,


This is just my opinion on the two and why i think the Fatmax is a better deal. btw i tryed out the stanley hid compact and a full charge lasted no more then 7 minutes. the charging indicator would turn green in 40 minutes when it really was not fully charged yet. thee throw was barly more then my fatmax and deree asphreic so i returned it and kept the fatmax. maybe i just like led's better.

Stanley should just switch to li-ion and stop using the heavy sla's. Heck they already have a Halogen(800 lumen) li-ion spotlight for $30.
