Flashlights ~ Sorting Out The Lumen Lies.
NEBO SOLEIL ULTRA SLIM SOLAR LED FLASHLIGHT #5113
"It has 3 ultra-bright LEDs that put out an incredible 40 lumens of light."
So............I bought this flashlight just as an extra 2nd light for the Mrs. QK Bug Out Bag.
It really was not at all expensive. I "figgered" last ditch ~ Never Needs Batteries...Lightweight, thin, I'll pop one into her bag.
I just let it charge all doggone day long & if that's 40 Lumens...I'll eat every Lumen with ketchup and mustard on them.
Compared to other small LED lights that I own. I'm best guessing 6 Lumens or possibly 8.
How can I tell that? I have a tiny Gerber light that is a single LED 8 Lumen light & it's actually brighter.
It's not like I'm out any big money so that's not a concern & it does actually work fine but, the light output is quite low.
What gives with the extreme, total, BS w/ regard to light brightness/output?
