I am looking to change out the old flashlights in my collection (I still have the old rubber coated D battery contraptions that I probably stole from my dad). Anyway, I have been looking at several "tactical" style lights to place around the house, in the car, and near my defense weapons....however, I am curious as to what is standard "look for" in these type lights. It seems you can get basic S&W style LED lights that carry 75-100 lumens for about $25...or you can get 500-1000 lumen lights for about 4 times the price. I am looking at getting 4 or 5 of these and just curious if the lumen power difference is nothing more than illumination dick measuring or if there is a truly practical reason to warrant an extra $75 a pop on these.
Thanks for your help and suggestions.
