The new CREE XM-L LED is a breakthrough in the flashlight world. The XM-L is a bigger LED which puts out a higher volume of light than previous version LED’s.
To get a good benchmark of what to expect from different lights which utilize the XM-L, we did a comparison video using 4 different torches which feature that LED. The beams are all different even though all 4 lights use the same LED. Many factors play a part in determining how the beam looks, so comparison videos like the one below are a valuable tool which allows you to choose which light is best for you.
