CANDLEPOWER EQUALS AUTHORITY — AN UPDATE. Reader Mike Cullison writes:

I took your advice and went with the 1000 lumen LifeGear model. What a beast. I can light up every square foot of our 3 acres from the house. Sure is a big monster, though. Weight isn’t terrible since it uses 6 C cells instead of Ds, but it’s exactly 18″ long.

Seems to be as well made as a Maglite, which used to be my go-to light.

Yeah, I meant to blog a followup, as I swapped my 700-lumen model for the 1000-lumen model. I took the latter outside the other night, and the beam is noticeably brighter — not only does it reach farther, but it seems wider. It’s quite a flashlight.
