Imalent MS18 100.000 lumens

Currently, the brightest flashlight in the world is the Imalent MS18 with its 100.000 lumens. This beast uses 18 Cree XHP70 2nd LED bulbs powered by a built-in battery pack consisting of 8 21700 batteries. Recharging the flashlight is done with the included charging cable. One battery pack is included in the box, extra battery packs can be ordered online if you need to use the flashlight for a long time. The Imalent got both range and floodlight, with a throw distance of up to 1350 meters / 4429 foot, illuminating everything around and in front of you. When running on max output, it’s 50 times brighter than car headlights, no wonder this torch is on top of the brightest flashlights list. There are 8 different brightness settings to toggle between, from 700 lumens to 100.000, plus a strobe function. Now, all this brightness comes with a price, the flashlight is huge and noisy. You can’t exactly fit this in your pocket, and to prevent it from overheating, a fan activates that makes a loud buzzing noise. Is this a handy everyday carry flashlight? Far from.. Is it like the coolest thing ever you can buy and show off to your friends, YES. If you got over 600 bucks to spare..
