    More details would help people help you. What does “big” mean? Big in size? Output? Throw? What will it be used for? What is your budget? Does battery or charging options matter to you? Etc. Etc. The more you can define your needs, the better suggestions you will get. Happy hunting!


    Edit: Typing at the same time as my friend Arch it seems. Haha

    If you specify a budget range and an output range (lm, cd, etc) , as well as perhaps examples of your intended use case, you may get better advice here.

    The current budget reigning champions are gonna be the BLF GT4, BLF GT94, Astrolux MF05, and the Firefoxes FF5. Most of the smaller lights like you mentioned in the op cannot sustain those high output for any significant amount of time before overheating.

    Magio mentions some truly great lights in the post above.

    Also, I both have and like X45, MF05, MT90, 2 x X65, 2 x HK90, MS18, R90TS, K75, D18 W2, MS06 and 2 x BLF GT94. My favorite is BLF GT94. I got two of them. GT94 has both a very, very exciting beam profile and beam performance.

    Recommended by those in the know, but I don't have yet: X70.

    There are more than a few others. In the past few years, I have build my own lengthy database of big lights. I have organized the list by throw and also by lumens.

    King of led throwers: MF05/MT90.

    King of power flooders: MS18.

    King of power throwers: R90TS and BLF GT94.

    There are many others.
