For years I used the big 1 million candlepower lights (fairly bulky) until I started exploring Streamlight and the like.

I found a TrustFire (basically a clone) for $30 plus $10 shipping on eBay. Find it from several vendors and you will get a price like that or similar.

It is 1,000 lumens which is perhaps a better measure than candlepower.
By the way, the little led lights you see for $3 to $5 at places like Harbor Freight and such are 100 lumens. Get the difference between a $3 light and a $40 light? It's substantial.

The TrustFire is rechargeable right in the light. You rotate the shaft and it exposes the female plug for the included power supply that plugs in the wall. Holds charge for a long time.

I have owned the pistol shaped light Alan uses, and it can not compare to a TrustFire or similar light. The small black TrustFire and others that are 1,000 lumens are like the ones the CSI guys use on TV (and in real life). Police officers and other responders use similar lights.

In a dark hallway locker this lights up the back like you wouldn't believe. Put yours in there while someone is using a regular flashlight and you'll be amazed at the difference.

I am NOT a TrustFire seller.

I looked at your website. Do you actually have time to go to storage auctions?

I use that workforce flashlight on the top. It is pretty good and the battery lifetime is ok. Way better then a Stanley flashlight i had.

My workforce last me almost thru a whole day of auctions. If there is many lockers then i have to charge it between locations. But normally it last me around 25-30 min non stop. That is almost a full day of auctions.

The only thing i don't like about it is that it feels cheep, because of the cheap plastic. But as long as it works i am game on this one.

Ohh, and i always bring 3 flashlights with me. 2 are backups. One in the car and one in my pocket, (small LED type)

It's been a year or so, but I THINK it was a Stanley. Seem to remember getting it at Sears.
When the switch was clicked once it went to the leds and a second click took it to a regular bulb. Never
could figure out what that was about. It was rechargeable and came with the home adapter.

I BELIEVE that a lot of the lights  of that general kind are made in China by one or more manufacturers who
brand it with the name of the chain that buys it, Sears, Lowes, HomeDepot, etc. If Sears bought a 100K or so I'm sure the mfg wouldn't mind stamping it with Craftsman (or whatever their next line down is).

The TrustFire borrows (I think) on the SureFire name and technology.

I use a 500 LED, high intensity discharge, bazooka light which has an internal particle accelerator. I never have to recharge it. It even comes with a shoulder strap.  Just Kidding...The photo is for real though.

That is a big A$$ flash light. lol, I use this one I use
http://www.walmart.com/ip/Stanley-1M-Series-Spotlight/14560017

I like it because it is bright enough, does not cost much, I can shine it quickly or for long time (helps keep other people's eyes off my light beam :) ) and I can charge it in my truck.

How about this one ?



Two thoughts on the lights:

There is the old American marketing pitch:  Bigger is better

There is the furniture designer (Mies Van Der Rohe) pitch: less is more

This one has the advantage of a bright SureFire light and a tool to help eliminate the competition all in one package.
