I have lived with Maglite "D" cell LED flashlights since they came out.
LED was a game-changer,, the batteries seemed to last until their expiration date,,,
rather than as long as they could power the old filament light-bulb.
The Maglite was simply a drop-in of the LED bulb, so, the light is no where as bright as it could be.
It is great for working under the hood of the truck, but, not powerful enough to shine across a field.
I am looking for a game spotter light, with a 70-100 yard range.
MANY new flashlights are out now,, heck, I have seen forums where they discuss >$200 lights!!
For the heck of it, I ordered one of the new-fangled LED flashlights from Amazon in my price range ,,, $7.
It is easily 2X if not 3X as powerful as the 3D cell Maglite.
I was amazed.
It is inexpensively made,, charges by plugging in my phone charger,,,
It came with zero instructions,, the light seems to have 4 intensity levels,
and it will rapidly flash at any level.
So, I was wondering,, is there a "good" quality light,, at a mid price point?
$7, was a nice price to prove there is a possibility,,
I can not spend multiple hundreds of dollars for a flashlight.
(it is a mental block,, a flashlight should not cost that much!!)
What do you recommend??
