It's very intetesting to look at "warming" of alkaline cells.
These batteries were cooled down to some degrees below 0°C (32°F) in my car for a week.
Shots were taken each 5 minutes, as current warmed up the cell.

|Lithium cells require no warming.|
It is clearly visible that Nitecore D10 brightness on 14500 cells is significantly higher (about 180lm) than on alkalines (about 130lm).
So we can say that manufacturer underrates outputs (it is declared that these flashlights output 130lm max.)

We were impressed by Icon flashlight: It can really throw to 50m. That's unusual to professional headlamps.

Fenix Headband equipped with two Fenix LD20 flashlights is a really usable device.
For close distances, it is also some sort of shadowless light.
400mW laser beam is also clearly visible.

|Three 1W LEDs in Camelion flashlights should give 3 watts total :)|

|GP Discovery is a big 4xD-batteries krypton flashlight. Focus is cool, but light is almost unusable due to its size. Similar "Kosmos" flashlight have a 10-watt halogen that, we can say, throws to 50m. But that weird dark spot in center makes this light unusable also.|

|We didn't really planned to shoot Maglite Solitaire, but here it is :)|

|Huge krypton lamp labeled "300 000" candlepowers. Brightness and focusing make it usable for far distances. But that weight and size makes it completely nonportable :)|
