It is capable of melting plastic, lighting paper on fire within seconds, and if you like, fry an egg or a marshmallow on a stick. See a video below that shows how the flashlight burns up a pile of paper.
At 4100 lumens, The Torch is 100 lumens more powerful than The Polarion Helios (Update 02/07/08: Polarion claims their PH40 has closer to 4,200 lumens, we are looking further into this), the former most powerful flashlight.
