A small very bright tactical flashlight
I had been told that the high output LEDs were brighter and lasted longer. However, your site lists the Xenon as 114 Lumens, and the LED as only 30 Lumens. Is this correct that the LED is only 1/4th as bright as the Xenon one?
Any other advice or other tactical lights I should consider in that price range?
While it is possible to make an LED as bright as a xenon, it would require more power, so if you want the brightest model, a zenon option is usually your best choice. On the other hand, the LED is a lot tougher and less prone to breakage and has a virtually unlimited lifespan. On a zenon or other incandescent, you will need to replace bulbs on a regualr basis.
