These were mentioned in another thread ("Surefire whore") but the guy now has a very professional website and regular production.

www.blackbearflashlights.com

Very well crafted, modified Maglights.

1050 lumens, 45 minutes runtime, $260.00. 3-d Mag body.

He also has smaller and larger sizes for various applications and runtimes, but the Borealis 1050 is his brightest. He also has a torture test video in the "Support and Documentation" section, but I couldn't get it to play in my Mac Camino browser.

Streamlight UltraStinger 75,000 cp / 295 lumens:



Surefire M6 500 lumens, expensive lithium disposables, 20 minute runtime:



Borealis 1050 lumens, 45min runtime, rechargeable NiMH AA's widely available:



I have no connection at all, just figured some whack job light nuts here would like the info. :D

yep - it is!


A Controlled Experiment Demonstrating the Raw Power of the Borealis Flashlight
At Black Bear Flashlights, we believe that with power comes responsibility. Because of the sheer power of our lights, we

encourage safe and responsible usage. Never leave your light turned on and unattended for long periods of time. DO

NOT look directly into the beam of your light. The Borealis is suitable for illumination through heavily tinted automotive

windows, in huge indoor structures, and for hundreds of yards outdoors.

thats with the Krypton White Star bulb - standard on most maglites*

you can get the upgrade of Xenon Magnum Star bulb with 124.3 lumens for 10-11 hours*










*peak beam power, lumen output and battery life continuous on time are approximate and may vary between flashlights, lamps and batteries










taken directly from the maglite spec page

Huh... I wonder what the hell is wrong with ALL my maglites... I have the 2, 4, and 6 D cell models and ALL have failed me in terms of battery life. I've upgraded two of them to the LED models and battery life has increased MAJORLY, but the old standard bulbs SUCKED the life out of the batteries. I guess you can always beat someone and take their batteries... hehe.
