Whether it's during a power cut, a hunting trip or a searching mission in the basement, a powerful flashlight is a useful tool to have. As battery-powered torches prove more costly to run, a rechargeable flashlight is generally seen as the better alternative to buy. There are many flashlights on the market, but some are much more powerful than the rest.
Wicked Lasers' 'The Torch'
Currently under review by "The Guinness Book of World Records," 'The Torch' is an extraordinarily powerful flashlight capable of starting fires and frying eggs. At 4,100 lumens, it has to be equipped with a heat resistant glass lens to stop it from shattering as a result of the extreme heat. Unfortunately, due to the intense power of this flashlight, its custom-built rechargeable battery only has a life of about 5 minutes.
Sure-fire B1R Beast
Available in rechargeable and disposable-battery versions, the Beast is fitted with a High Intensity Discharge (HID) lamp, which is the same type as those found in street lights. At 15.5 inches long and weighing just 2.04 Kilogram, the SureFire Beast earns its name not through its size, but through the sheer power of its stunning 2,000-lumen HID lamp, which is further enhanced by an LED array. The rechargeable version as a 2-hour battery life for the HID lamp and a remarkable 32 hours for the LED array.
This range of flashlights has been popular with law enforcement agencies due to their immense power and durability. Weighing just over 1 pound and armed with an unbreakable polycarbonate lens, the Ultra Stinger possesses a powerful beam equal to approximately 75,000 candlepower.
According to its manufacturer, Streamlight, the Strion is the brightest, ultra-compact rechargeable flashlight in the world. Globally renowned for its pioneering work in rechargeable flashlights, Streamline has produced a flashlight that is almost as powerful as the lower-end Stinger models, but is only half the size. At just 5.3 inches long and weighing 0.132 Kilogram, the Strion has a battery life of 70 minutes.
24W HID Ultra High Power Rechargeable Flashlight
This flashlight lays claim to being "The Most Powerful HID Flashlight on the Earth" according to the All Battery website. Encased in aluminium alloy, this flashlight produces a bright white beam that is an excellent illumination tool for law enforcement officers and hunters alike. It is also a useful weapon for self-defence purposes, as its powerful beam can disorient an attacker when shone directly into his eyes.
