1000 lumen torch - Costco

15 ish in the warehouse including 3 D cells.

http://www.costco.co.uk/view/product/uk_ca...1.5/166262

Flood and spot via a zoom.

Got sent this link and picked one up and for the money it seems brilliant. It has various modes 1000, 500, 250 lumens SOS and strobe. Very white light from 4 leds and good reach.

Only downside I can see is its a very square beam at full focus with 'crosshair' affect (i.e. looks like a group of 4 squares). Back off focus a bit and its fine. With 3 D Cells included this well made, known brand torch on its own is effectively about a tenner. Cracking buy for those who want a powerful torch without spending too much

Link's not quite worked there. I'm getting a "page not found" error.

Pun intended?

Costco UK - Feit High Power Ultra Bright 1,000 Lumens Flashlight

That is the same brand they sell here in the USA. I have a few of their LED bulbs, that work okay, but don't fit into my light housing *shrugs*

I've got that one. It's ok, but the bigger one focuses tighter. It's not 2200 lumen either,as it's not as bright as the supposed 1800 lumen one I have.

Still a damn good bit of kit for the money though and very very useful.
