China made one also good BUT sure not those RM20 from pasar malam one.
I bought more than 10 CREE 8 torchlight from Beijing since August..

still happy with it, mainly for my cycling purpose but now also carry it along everywhere I go (used to be one small maglite for past 10 years)
the distance? more than 160m! tried and confirmed :-)

price? get from online there hence cheaper..i think most important i make sure all using 18650 rechargeable battery.

If ever I would buy a LED flashlight, then I would choose the same like what you have. I bet that flashlight is very useful in foggy nights. Just let me know where I can find one.

I m not the flashlight dealer & i dun have any stock with me . High Lumen Flashlight battery runtime usually not good .Depend on wat battery u wan to use ..
2) im keen to go into dark place and usually i brought along my headlight but find it difficult since it only light up a very small portion of area like a tunnel, u can see very smal area n not very far..
I suggest u bring more torch as back up maybe 3 or 4 torch . one for throw , two for light up wide area & small one for backup .
so wht brand you suggest me that can brightiest up very wide area and very far and can last long.. how much it cost?
For reliable torch , i suggest Made In USA Torch . Example : Surefire , HDS System , Malkoff .
But they are using CR123 battery tat is expensive to buy from local .
China Make Torch , i will suggest Olight . Although their torch design not so attractive but their torch quite reliable & steady .
They have many battery option torch for your need .

I Dun have shop lol :mrgreen: but if u are interested to buy then i can recommend u where to buy .
Enjoy the GPS’s life!
