    Question Anyone have this light?

    Is it REALLY as bright as advertised? It looks interesting, especially for the price. They claim it at a whopping 700 lumens!

    If anyone has it, let me know what you think of it.

    Thanks, Sigmanluke

    "8-hr. continuous run time on 2 lithium CR-123 batteries"

    I am no expert but I do question the claim of 8 hours run time. Are there lower settings than the 700 lumens?

    The description seems a bit odd.
    "Indestructible 700-lumen Cree® bulb shatters shadows"
    and
    "Coated optical-grade glass eliminates filament ring shadows."

    As far as I know, Cree only makes LEDs. There should be no filament ring shadows to eliminate.

    Sorry but I don't buy it. I love good quality lights and have some surefires and some others. Frankly, there's no way this light does 700 lumen for 8 hours straight. On a low setting led's can run a day or more but that's in at 10-20 lumens, or at least in that neck of the woods.

    A true 60 - 100 lumen light is only going to last an hour and some minutes if even that. Some are getting close to 2 hours but then a lot of those aren't really as bright as you might think becasue there are different way of measuring lumens. A 60 lumen Surefire will typically be brighter than a 100 lumen cheap Chinese knock off. (Don't get me wrong, some of the Chinese lights are good values).

    So something is definitely wrong wth this add. Just too good to be true and I believe it must be.
