    what specs do you look for in an LED flashlight for purchasing?

    I bought from one computer surplus...it was a pair of 9 "led flashlight" for about 9 bucks.

    I thought when hearing 9...that would seem bright, but after getting it and trying it wiht the 3 triple A's it asked for...the lighting was soooooooooooooo weak...i thought that leds in general are supposed to be bright, but with 9 in a small 2 inch diameter lens.....the lighting is sooo faint.

    So with that in mind, i guess what you pay is what you get, but how do you figure out the bargains and which one's really do shine out well a mile down the road?

    Look for the lumen or candlepower rating. Thats the only real, trustworthy measure of brightness.
