In the list below, you will find the results of our measurement tests. We have measured the light intensity in Lux at distances of 7.5 and 12 metres and using fully-charged batteries.
On the basis of the measurement at a distance of 12 metres, the distance is then calculated in which the light intensity is 2 lux and 0.25 lux respectively.
In our opinion, 2 Lux is a usable amount of light. According to the ANSI standard, 0.25 Lux is still a usable amount of light. We have included these so that you can compare our measurements with the specifications of the manufacturer.
We measured the light intensity in the middle of the beam. In some torches, the light surrounding the middle is somewhat brighter (the so-called doughnut). However, this only differs by one or two per cent.
New: Torches that produce (virtually) the same light output using various types of batteries only appear once on our list. Torches where the light output is affected by the type of battery used appear more often on our list.
In conclusion, please note that we have not tested all the torches. However, we believe that we have included the most important models.
This list of the most powerful torches has been compiled by us and is based on a selection of torches in our range, using our own tests.
Defects and inaccuracies in measuring can lead to errors occurring in the list. Additionally, some models may have changed making some of the information in the list outdated. However, we have done our best to ensure that our list is as accurate as possible.
