This is a first look at my new 7 x Cree XM-L T6 LED Torch.
It’s painfully bright, the documentation quotes 10,000 lumens.. I can’t verify the numbers but I can say it’s VERY bright.. painfully if you happen to glance at it on full power.
It run’s from 4 x Li-ion batterys (18650) that take a fair time to charge via the supplied charger.. we’re talking maybe 10 hours a pair !
Colour quality and range is excellent. The light is very white and looking at surrounding colours they all appear pretty close to daylight colours.. blues, reds, yellows and greens are very clear and sharp so a broad spectrum light.
I bought mine through eBay for around £40 inc p&p, mains charger and batteries.
