    Uploading via CPF doesn't work for my either. Think something I use in my browser blocks it. Used Tinypic before, but can't fill in the anti-robot text anymore. So have to do it via Photobucket now.

    But that Superpower does look awesome!

    You are 110% correct about being practical or easy to carry around, however the reason i snagged one was for the WOW Factor of a HUGE MEGA PORTABLE FLAME THROWER. I just wanted one "Just because"..

    Just fantastic. Love too see a picture of those lights being held in the hand. You definitely got your moneys worth with that beast.

    You're going to have to hire somebody too take and post beam shots.

    I imagined it was big.. but this big!? OMG!

    Think that Lupine light is just as tall, as the Superpower is wide

    With the Czech VAT of 21%, which is the same as in the Netherlands, the Superpower would cost me about €2960. And that's without shipping.

    Thats just about exactly what it just cost me in USD. The dollar is at a all time high against the Euro and a great time to shop in Europe...

    Please contact Petr @ Lemax in the Cz Republic as they just built a fresh batch of 500 of them and I am sure he has one with your name written all over it..

    Question about how this light is not practical...I was thinking, would this light do the trick if you wanted to play tennis at night? Or drive golf balls at night, or play Wiffle ball, etc? Or is it too narrowly focused? Also, it might be impractical for such a task because it might be too blinding. Maybe it would work driving golf balls because you would point it out and you wouldn't be looking in the direction of the light. Or maybe it is like a setting sun, just like you aren't supposed to look into the sun maybe you could lay the Superpower on the ground 50 feet off to the side and play some night tennis, but just like the sun make sure you don't look into it??

    Well it really serves no practical use what so ever to me but just the fact of adding another "Handheld Portable HID Light" to the arsenal of Flame Throwers...

    Surefire DOES NOT provide you with a battery charger for either the Arc2-8C or the Hellfighter5, however Lemax sure did..

    Hello Petr,

    Thank you for making this effort. I received the text you sent and I have since replied via email.

    Btw my comment 'not yet replied' was not serious, just me poking fun at myself.

    Interesting light!

    But has anybody measured the candela of this light? The manufacturer claims that it can throw 4.2km, which is translated into 4.4MCP.
    Somebody has modded a Sanmak SM5500 (comes with 13" reflector!) with 100W HID system and it has over 3MCP.
    13" reflector is much larger than this 8" reflector, and yet this 8" light can produce even higher candela?

    Anyway if I have 3000USD I would buy the Maxabeam - 12MCP (3x more candela than this Lemax) in a much smaller and portable package and still left about 1000USD for some really good food for 1 month, instead of spending 3000USD for a huge and heavy light like this which only has 1/3 of the candela output (although much higher lumens output).

    But still an interesting light and thread, thanks for posting.
