For those that have a flashlight fascination (like me,) I’ve posted a review of the ProTac HL 3 flashlight from Streamlight. This is a CR123A-powered flashlight putting out 1,100 lumens and 36,000 candela. I do a drop test, submersion test and more. The review is a lot longer than the reviews in the past – […]

The Streamlight ProTac HL is an incredibly high power LED flashlight that is remarkably affordable for what you get. The street price on this torch is about $70-80, which might be more that you consider a bargain. However, it throws 600 lumens (!) and is smaller than any of those “D” cell lights you had […]
