If there was any lingering question, this Redline flashlight from Nebo is a testament to how far LED technology has come. Gone are the days when LED flashlights put out only a fraction of the light of incandescents. This compact flashlight, 4 3/8 inches long and 1 3/8 inches in diameter, puts out 220 lumens of white lights and has 5 modes. You can use it at 220 lumens, 110 lumens, 22 lumens, SOS mode, or strobe mode. The SOS (Morse code) and strobe might be handy for emergencies if you carry the flashlight in the car.

First, using a "real" tactical light, it shows features found on a typical tactical light that is widely used in tactical situations. Granted, the sample light costs several times more than the Nebo and that the reality if you are looking for a light that is tactical in more than its name.The second part of the video provides a beam comparison between the Nebo and a...

This has to be the best light for the price range. You can always find something better but your going to pay 2 to 5 times more. At 220 lumens and if the air is calm and not dusty I could to almost see up to 200 yards. For the money and what I received I am 100% happy and would recomend to anyone.
