Can I ask a question.....which has intrigued me for some time? Why do people ask for opinions on tackle after they've bought it?

lol , i dont know myself , i presume for a sense of confirmation that they have "done" the right thing hence i hesitated to run the product down or wee on fireworks but there you are :)

Have had the Coast HL27 for about a year now, been fine with no problems, not sure about the claims of over 300 lumens ( my 200 lumen princeton Apex is brighter) but bright enough

May have dodgy wiring and the Lumen count is wrong.. Other than that a good bit of kit.. Me thinking 90 of your squids, 5 cheap Chinese ones.
Hope it's a good bit of kit Vw..

"Lumens" are the amount of light over a given angle. So comparing claimed lumens from one lamp to another is really meaningless.

Here Gulp.
i would like to take you up on the Lumen count mate.!!!!. I have a couple of the Chinese torches and they ARE! 1800 Lumen (said so on the packet!).. I counted em one night as it was getting dark!! Oh and what is wrong with good old candle power??? I got my old million candle power torch in the cupboard. I was trying to test this out for accuracy but after 30 candles i got bored.
I would like to hereby state, i have noooooooooooooooo idea what a lumen is, though i guess it's some measure of light emitted?
Cheers Dave
