    47 lumens. Review on Candle Power Forum. Will not fit into molle like the predecessor Pentagon light. If you want to stick it on a metal refrigerator, it would make a fine area light. It doesn't have outdoor throw capability.

    One size doesn't fit all in this world. Sometimes you need a lantern, sometimes a handsfree headlamp.

    My intent here was to offer a "heads up" on a bug out gadget, not suggest that it is better or worse than anything else. Its a smallish taks light, no doubt. :dunno:

    I like the idea of a flashlight with a magnet attached. It has uses just like an led lantern or a headlight approach.

    I was simply quoting from the Candle Power website some of the comments.

    And, as someone said, the prices range wildly, with Amazon having the best price.
