1200 Lumens, as bright as car headlights if not even brighter. Brightest of, all along with flashlight number 2, but this one is focusable, requires 2 18650 batteries, 5 modes.
Output is the same as flashlight number 1, it is smaller, non focusable, requires 1 18650 batteries, 5 modes.
300 Lumens, very focusable, waterproof, comes with adapter for 3 AAA batteries, but it can also be used with one 18650 battery. Beats the Nebo Readline both in brightness and ease of use.
220 Lumens, comes with the 3 AAA adapter, cannot accept 18650 batteries. Focusable, 5 modes.
Everyone should have one of these. 300 Lumens, really bright, small and focusable. Only one mode. Works 30% better with 14500 battery, but it gets hot and drains the battery quickly. It is really bright with a standard AA battery as well, last at least 10 hours with the standard battery and it does not get hot.
