    Ok if there is one thing that Im completely addicted to besides my truck is flashlights. I have many flashlights ranging in the 100-150 lumen range, but I just wanted something ridiculously overkill!!:D So I have been researching many different flashlights for the past month and decided to go with the JETBeam BC40. For the price ($69.99) there is nothing and I mean nothing that I could find that was even in the same universe as this little light is. This mini sun will illuminate the world with 830 lumens on high with a throw of 344m and 130 lumens on low. Operates off of 4x cr123 batteries or 2x 18650 batteries. I ordered the light from Goinggear.com, and I highly recommend them. Very friendly people with tons of knowledge and very helpful. Now on to some pics!!:D

    I tried to find the darkest place in my house and it just so happened to be a hallway. The picture just does not give it justice. Ill try and get some more pictures tonight but Im not making any promises since all I have is my phone to take pictures with.

    My bad boy is a 675 lumen headlamp for mtn biking from Light & Motion
    But that one has got to kick some arse.
    Batteries though, is there a rechargable option?

    For $70 that can't be beat.
    I may have to pick one up.
    Thanks for the post.

    No problem!! Like I said for the price I could find nothing that could come close.

    This should be interesting to some people. The holly-grail of flashlight reviews!!
