People these days will not believe that when I left home at 17, there was still no electricity connected to the family home. We relied on a couple of Tilley pressure lights in the kitchen, and a wick kerosene lantern in the bathroom. Dad was a light sleeper and kept a Big Jim torch beside the bed where he could immediately put his hand on it if one of us kids moved. I think that's where my fascination with torches began and I've always had a good torch with me.
Lately though my obsession has grown. Black Friday sales are in full swing and when this torch was offered at $200 off I bit the bullet this morning. It's a Olight X9R Marauder 25,000lumen monster.

Beast of a torch, been eyeing one off for a while but the Minister for Finance has advised that if one arrived I'd find it firmly entrenched where it will never get to shine (unless I bend over).
I highly recommend the Marauder 2 as a smaller alternative for massive flood and spot. If thats too big, the Warrior 3 is a good mix of flood and throw.

What a monster. I was only just using my Warrior X Pro an hour ago, thinking it's so powerful, it doesn't actually get used all that often. You could almost light up the moon with that thing. (y)

I wouldn't even like to imagine that amount of heat in there... :eek::eek:

My most-used torches are your Perun headlamp and the Warrior Mini.

I'm looking forward to the Weekly Razor Review when you use this sucker to BURN your stubble off! Efficient, yes; Smooth, wellll....; Lots of balm needed after that shave!

My most used is currently the Lumintop FW4A, 3600 lumen pocket monster closely followed by the Olight S1R Baton II
