LEP Flashlight for $150-$170
Until the latter part of 2020, LEP flashlights on the market have been in the $300+ range. A price, that many can't really afford for a flashlight. Most people think that a $100 dollar flashlight may be overkill, let alone a $300 flashlight.
Flashlight have come a really long way in the last decade. Back in the day, when Maglite was the norm, flashlights were producing less than 100 lumens. These days, a flashlight with less than 1000 lumens isn't getting much attention.
Flashlights with over 25,000 lumens is getting most of the attention. But, within the flashlight community, things have usually been around brightness (output) but also about intensity (throw). There are basically 2 strong camps. The lumenmonsters and the throwers.
White laser flashlights have become more and more popular, and I think this is going to be the next 'big thing' in the flashlights world. The problem, however, has been the price.
Finally, it has become more affordable with the coming of some no-name LEP Flashlights.
