Not as bright as an OEM automobile headlamp.
Let me start by saying I’m a busy guy and I work long hours which means by the time I get home with the company car it’s often dark. I also really like beer. (No I haven’t been drinking any.) Unfortunately the headlamps on my full sized pickup don’t work because the wiring is bad so I can’t drive to...

36 hour power outage with only that pink thing... Never again.
Great choices! I would also recommend a headlamp. They are super useful for power outages. The Sofirn SP40 is a great budget option.
Edit: Sofirn also sells diffusers for the SP36 to turn it into a very effective lantern.

Awesome Upgrade to High CRI

I need a light to leave in the glovebox of my cars...
The Sofirn SP40 is great and is only slightly more expensive than an S2+ if you buy it from Sofirn's website. ~~It also works with two CR123A's according to the Amazon listing.~~ Apparently Sofirn's website says otherwise so don't do that, just to be safe.

It is unadjustable, and has a permanent bright spot in the middle like a narrow spot light, with a big, much weaker, flood. Held 4 feet from a wall, the spot beam is about a foot across, with the flood beam being over...

First impressions are pretty good, and again (this is my second Sofirn product) it seems like Sofirn has made a product where the right audience can find a high value for money headlamp, however there are some things you need to take note of before deciding on this specific model #1 this is not a "t...
