    I've seen an AE powerlight and they are AWESOME!!!! Since I can't afford a $400 light I got a 'Power on Board' HID from Sams Club for $99 plus tax. For the $400 price range the AE light would be your best bet.

    HID stands for High Intensity Discharge. Its like the car headlights that are blueish. My HID will light up trees at over a mile away. While blackbears borealis is an awesome light and is perfect for intended purposes, it just won't throw as far as an HID with a bigger reflector. I had a G&P Scorpion R500 (same as Cabela's 500 lumen light) and would go with the Borealis before that. Deffinately a better brighter product.
