  • a torch comparison will be better if you know your needs. do you want a torch that can penetrate and have a tight, focussed beam? or a diffused beam for video/focus work?

    Depends on your budget you have and your willingness to spend.... there is no minimum or maximum brightness required...

    For reference....
