Polarion claims World's most powerful Flashlight with 5,000lm

It was only a matter of time until Polarion-USA would hit back and claim the title of World's brightest Flashlight again. About a week ago Wicked Lasers introduced "The Torch" Flashlight featuring 4,100lm brightness.
The Polarion Helios PH40 and PF40 have 4,000lm. Ken Good, founder of Polarion-USA, told us today that the PH40 and PF40 searchlights actually have close to 4,200lm, they just never cared to specify the exact brightness and just stated 4,000+ lumens.
To paint a clear picture, Polarion-USA ups the ante with the release of the new PH50 and PF50 Flashlights that deliver an astonishing 5,000 lumens raising the bar for the most powerful Flashlight by almost 1,000 lumens.
Polarion-USA once again has the World's most powerful flashlight.

The new PH50 and PF50 have the same form factor as the PH40 and PF40 torches. With 50W power compared to 40W the current models use the battery life decreases by 8 minutes (current battery life: 80min.), but new higher capacity batteries available soon will level that again.

Polarion High Intensity Discharge (HID) portable searchlights are used by rescue teams, SWAT teams and the military. The Polarion Searchlight can throw a beam up to 1 Mile (~1.5km).

The price for the new Polarion PH50 and PF50 is currently set at the same level as the PH40 and PF40:$2,195 MSRP.

The Wicked Lasers Torch is selling for only $299.99, but now it is not the most powerful Flashlight anymore. To own the World’s brightest torch you need to pay the price of a professional tool.

I had to ask Ken Good, if his Flashlight can make fire. I heard him chuckle through the email saying that as fire-starter their lights will not compare. He explains: "There is energy in the battery. The energy is converted into two things, light and heat I will take the light.
We are more concerned about how much light we are putting out downrange rather than heat. In fact we try to pull heat away through heat sinks. We don’t want heat."

More details about Polarion-USA can be found on their site.
