IMALENT MS18 100000 Lumens LED Flashlight
IMALENT MS18 100000 Lumens LED Flashlight is one of the strongest LED flashlights on the market offering light that is ~100x stronger than the typical home LED or incandescence bulb, which usually features 800-1200 lumens.
Of course, such output power cannot be maintained for a long time despite an active cooling system, but even when reverting to "weaker" light mode, IMALENT MS18 100000 Lumens LED Flashlight still offers impressive 25000 lumens.

IMALENT MS18 Flashlight Features and Specifications
IMALENT MS18 Flashlight features one of the strongest light beams thanks to 18 CREE XHP70 2nd LEDs organized into two circles in a somewhat wider flashlight head.
CREE XHP70 2nd LEDs feature a lifespan of 50000 hours, ensuring a long lifetime of the flashlight itself, at least regarding the LEDs.
The light output of the CREE XHP70 2nd LED is incredible for the handheld LED flashlight, although IMALENT MS18 Flashlight is anything but a small, compact and lightweight LED flashlight.
For example, in the Turbo light mode, the flashlight provides 100000 (100k) lumens and 458000 (458k) candela, with a beam maximum distance of 1350m (~1500 yards!) - that is ~0.84 miles!
To protect the flashlight from heat damage, IMALENT MS18 Flashlight also features an active cooling system based on the heat pipe radiator and low-noise fans, which could, IMHO of course, be quieter.
When the battery pack is fully charged, IMALENT MS18 Flashlight can operate for up to one minute in the Turbo light mode, after which it automatically switches itself down to 25000 (25k) lumens mode where it can operate for up to 52 minutes continuously.
60 seconds of 100000 (100k) lumens doesn't sound much, but the light intensity and strength are like a small sun - again, it is literally as strong as 100 typical home 800-1200 light bulbs.
After switching to 25000 lumens mode, IMALENT MS18 Flashlight can operate for up to 52 minutes with a light output of 25000 (25k) lumens is also an excellent feature, making it one of the brightest flashlights on the market today.
Obviously, IMALENT MS18 Flashlight is NOT a flashlight for kids and irresponsible adults - such output can blind a person or animal and even cause permanent eye injury!
IMALENT MS18 Flashlight features 8 light modes and one Strobe mode:
- Turbo Mode: 100000→25000 lumens, run-time 60s+52min,
- High III Mode: 60000→25000 lumens, run-time 70s+55min,
- High II Mode: 30000→25000 lumens, run-time 3.8min+60min,

- Low Mode: 700 lumens, run-time 14h 52min.
100000 lumens and 458000 (458k) candela require a large battery pack.

IMALENT MS18 Flashlight can be also used as a defensive weapon.
The body is made of aluminum and the flashlight head features a bezel (but not the aggressive one) which combined with the flashlight's size and weight allow the user to use the flashlight like a club or bat - if the attacker is able to reach the user since the flashlight can blind and disorient practically anything or anybody that comes toward the user.
Note: again and again - in the hands of an irresponsible person, this flashlight can be dangerous. After all, it can even start a fire by simply pointing the light beam toward the very dry and flammable materials - don't try this, please, not even without using a glass bottle bottom to focus the light a little bit!
IMALENT MS18 Flashlight comes with a 5-year limited warranty.
