    Default New LED Flashlight

    This 500 LED flashlight will be great for inspecting attics and crawlspaces. With it you could probably inspect the roof of a two-story house from the ground at night. Not sure if it is gonna fit in my tool pouch though.

    This is is a joke, right? Why would you carry (lug) a light this size when you can get the same performance from a xenon one the size of a large cigar?

    I use a "Wolf-Eyes" Xenon M-90 with rechargeable batteries for all my inspection work.
    It's worked great for two years now and still on the same set of batteries.

    Mag lights are a joke! Big, heavy and crappy pattern and throw. Good for knocking out the occasional angry dog or Realtor though.

    That's one hell of a light. A novelty but cool.
    If you want a great light for crawls or attics try the Streamlight Vulcan LED or Litebox Models. I have the Fire Vulcan LED. Amazing penetrating beam and overall light, very, very lightweight unit with shoulder strap.

    Maybe it's not appropriate in this thread, but I bought two-on-a-card 180 lumen single LED 3-AAA-cell flashlights at Costco for $20 recently. Then, last week, I saw them on sale for $15. They really are bright when compared to those boasting even 80 lumens. But when I put it in the toolbelt with the switch down, the pressure turned it on--client told me my light was on pointing straight up. (:-) Sorry, I can't show them to you because they are not on the Costco.com website.

    Awesome flash light!! But this would have been bright flashlight if it hadn’t used bargain bin LEDs with a very low lumen/watt output. I’d be willing to bet you can buy a $60 6LED 18watt that is brighter.

    I didn't believe it until I bought one myself out of curiosity. Found this site when researching flashlights. I've been using Maglites for years along with an 18v Ryobi rechargable. In fact, client brought a Streamlite into a crawlspace with him and this little Led Lenser blew it away - best $45.00 I have spent in a long time. Good for 8-10 hours of run time. Heres the link:
