Lights In The Darkness (Flashlight Thread)


Yeah they’re great. Some very budget items, plus some with features like USB recharging. I own a TC12 that’s great (1" diameter “tactical” light), and they’ve got plenty of other good models


Got the Emisar D4s in recently. While technically not much brighter than it’s baby brother, the D4, it’s much throwier. This one is 4x SST20 5000K (neutral white) emitters, and about 4000lumens (so actually slightly dimmer than my XP-L HI D4).

Same Beamshot as the others, trees are probably 30+ yards away.

And another 70 yards away.


Oh and realized I never posted the little D1, or a Beamshot of it.

Another point of reference, my patrol car’s spotlight.

I thought I’d collected all the Emisars, but now he’s released the D18, an 18 SST20 emitter monstrosity. Still fairly compact, just thick (3x18650s), but outputs 10000lumens (with warmer 3000k or 4000k emitters, that also render colors very accurately) or 14000 (with 5000k or 6500k and less color accurate emitters). Can’t decide which, I do like the D4s and it’s 5000k SST20s, but 4000k is a really nice tone and has no glare.
