It comes down to how much do you want to spend, what kind of batteries do you want to use and are you willing to invest in rechargeables and charger?
Dec 31st, 2017 9:36 am
Up to 100$ regular price. As for the batteries i know id have to use high capacity ones to get the high lumens. And yes to the charger. Thanks!

Are you willing to learn about lithium ion batteries and take care of them or would you prefer NiMH which are more durable and not explosion prone?

Typically 4AAs a smart charger and suitable light makes for an excellent combination, but you can also go simple and buy a Police brand light from walmart and use any battery in it (rechargeable or not).

Yeah lithium ion need to be carefully treated, no discharging below 2.5V, no overcharging, careful about impacts, when used in series they can reverse charge, protection circuits are not always reliable since they are typically aftermarket. They are enthusiast grade products unless built into a device with the proper circuitry, you become a human battery babysitter.

The Police lights get to lower lumens but are simple and easy to get, you can get 1000 lumen 4AA lights eneloops and a smart charger are ideal, Ikea AAs are acceptable, they also sell some smart chargers. Any NiMH smart charger will work on any NiMH rechargeable and they put out more current and full brightness till the batteries are empty, whereas alkaline will only give a few mins of full brightness and a fraction of the battery life.
Suitable lights are for example Nitecore EA4(1), Thorfire TK4A, Thrunite TN4A, Lumintop SD4A, Crelant V4A (extra bright but not regulated, starts dimming right away) and so forth. You can check for reviews at Budget Light Forum for any 4AA light.
The Thrunite seems to be the only one on amazon but you can probably do better for price elsewhere

I have not used the TN12 but Thrunite has a good reputation, the comments say it doesn't come with batteries which can be tricky to get in Canada, many places won't send them by mail anymore, but they are probably available on amazon but fakes are prevalent. However they are used in vaping so i assume they can be bought (i have not bought any for a few years so i don't know current sources). A;lso the light may be cheaper elsewhere, though when buying from chinese websites some are better then others.FrancisBacon wrote: ↑ How about these lights

And what kind of care would you recommend?
