Is The Repulsor Flashlight The World’s Most Powerful?

Repulsor-Flashlight

There may be times when you really need to light the path in front of you. For those times, we’d like to recommend the Repulsor. Clocking in at 7,911 Lumens, it’s allegedly the brightest of any production flashlights of similar size. It’s brighter than a car’s headlights, even. But to call it a flashlight is a bit of a stretch. It’s a 2.8lbs contraption with two bulbs, which is worn around the waist or firmly strapped to something like a bike. A 1 hour charge gives it between 90 minutes and 115 minutes of runtime, depending on the capacity you select. The 60 degree beam angle means there’s really not much in front of you that won’t get lit, and with a beam throw of over 2,300 feet, you’ll be able to light up things you won’t even be able to make out. It’ll cost you a $175 pledge to order your own, as part of a Kickstarter project that hasn’t launched yet.

15,000 Lumen LED Light Cannon Will Blind You, Efficiently

By David Ponce

There are more powerful light sources on the market. But what stands this one apart is that it’s self contained. And has LEDs. So the XM18 light cannon (it’s kind of hard to call this thing a flashlight, though I suppose you could try) houses either 32 or 36 Lithium batteries and has a cooling fan, because even more efficient LEDs still get hot. It has three power settings, the highest of which will output 15,000 Lumen. And the hexagon shape means you can just keep buying more and more of them, easily chain them together, and compete with the sun. But that sort of enterprising spirit will cost you dearly as even one XM18 fetches $2,500. And they’re made to order so expect to have to wait a bit for yours to arrive.
