Thread: Is there a better light for my needs than the Wolf Eyes Storm?

  1. #1

    Default Is there a better light for my needs than the Wolf Eyes Storm?

    My first requirement is a 100+++ hour run time on a single charge with a usable amount of light. Think 5 day+ camping trips. This is the most important.


    I also want a seriously bright high mode that lasts for over an hour. I had an Ae xenide 25w. That was too bright. Maybe 500 to 800 lumens.


    Size is irrelevant as long it is hand held.

    I'm not familiar with the Wolf eyes storm...

    However I know it's not the only flashlight that meets your requirements;

    The Fenix TK40 (8 AA batteries)

    2 Modes, 8 Total Outputs
    • Primary Modes (in order)
      • Turbo - 630 Lumens, 2 Hour
      • Low - 13 Lumens, 150 Hours
      • Medium - 93 Lumens, 20 Hours
      • High - 277 Lumens, 6.8 Hours



    The Olight M30 Triton; (2 18650, 3 rcr123a's, 4 cr123a's, or 2 18500's)


    • Output and runtime (2x18650, to 50%): High Mode 700 lumens/1.5 hours,
    • Medium Mode 120 lumens/9 hours,
    • Low Mode 8 lumens/90 hours (close enough)


    The Jetbeam M1X;

    Output & Runtime:
    CR123*3
    Max Output 450 Lumen(Torch Lumen), 100 mins
    Min Output 10 Lumen(Torch Lumen), lasting for 150 hours

    CR123*4
    Max Output 450 Lumen(Torch Lumen), 130 mins
    Min Output 10 Lumen(Torch Lumen), lasting for 200 hours


    18650 Rechargeable Lithium Batteries
    Max Output 450 Lumen(Torch Lumen), 3Hours
    Min Output 10 Lumen(Torch Lumen), lasting for 300 hours


    The Jetbeams lumen ratings are in torch lumens, which is rated brighter than emitter lumens, which the tk40 and the M30 triton use to rate their brightness. What I'm trying to say is though the Jetbeam appears to have less lumens on paper, all these lights produce roughly the same amount of light.



    Here is a decent video review of all three:

    I have both a TK40 and an Olight M30, both have pros and cons, both perform very well overall. I haven't put either through to much torture yet - other than a drop or two, but they're both solid quality lights.


    This guy, however, did torture his TK40;
