How often do you need that much light? Light up that much area?
IMHO, most use for this kind of light is for illegal hunting.


Those are great for hunting. And not all night hunting is illegal. I suppose if you were night hunting illegally, you might not want to use that much light, and it would be better if it were red.

I would think night vision tech would greatly reduce the need for powerful light night hunting.
But one thing I would change if elected god would be replace all the yellow door lights with red. I know some times an places red light outside the door can indicate issues. But red will let you see the area you need to, and let you see what is in the shadow better.

I have a handheld spotlight with 1,000,000,000 candlepower not sure how many lumens it is but it will light up a football field...only problem...is it plugs into a cigarette lighter.
I wonder if they make a 12w volt batter pack that would handle it. The Sear Diehard is just too heavy.


Back in the day, when I was a boy, I had a friend who had something like that. He plugged it into the Cigarette lighter on my wore out 1964 Chevy Biscayne. After awhile the light went out and flames started to come out from under the dash !!! (The dash was made of metal so it didn't hurt anything) I had to slide under the dash and blow the flame out.

The lighter never worked again.
