Thread: long-range flashlight

    Default long-range flashlight

    Good morning, everyone,


    I'm Sam, I need your advice to find THE perfect product. I live in a small alleyway with very little light and as I am very lucky I live at the end of it.


    I'd like to buy a lamp with a really wide light focus (but without the camera itself being huge to fit in my bag). Do you have a product to advise me please?

    I was thinking of going through a shopping guide like (meilleurtest for my purchase but having live advice always helps.

    Oops, I thought about the camera on my phone as I was writing the message. And it didn't even shock me when I read it again.


    I meant the flashlight

    I brought the precision of the small format because I have a huge one here at home, like a lantern lol

    The acebeam e10 is a fun option. The entire light can just about fit in the palm of your hand. It throws light really well

    Here's a good resource. Look up click on "intensity to get an indication how well it throws light forward. The bigger the number the better it tosses light forward. Slide the bar from left where it says 0 to about 20,000 and it'll show you lights that throw fairly well to great.
    Sometimes you don't need a whole lot of lumens to see at a distance if the light has a high cd rate vs lumens.
    Say a 500 lumen light says 8000 cd (candela) and another 500 lumen has 15000 cd, that one throws better.
