White light* is made of all the colors of the spectrum.

It's that important.

No, you are.

I used to think these were the shizzle but nowadays they're outperformed by the cheapest of Crees which are far more easy to carry.

Would have to be half the price again to be tempting.

I got one of these in my Baggy of Camomile a few times back. It broke after a few uses, but those few uses were great. We were spotlighting the trees in my back yard for owls.

These looked nice at Lowes. Almost bought 1 there for more than the price of 2 here. Yay Woot! In for one set.

Two 5 star reviews on AMazon. That's a promising start. Not enough to make a clear decision, but definitely helpful.

I do a daily woot blog where I talk about the woot, link to CSEs, find reviews, etc. A few people have told me it's useful. Google "useful linkage" and there it is.

A. Did you want owls to be there?
B. Did you want owls to go away?
C. Are you an owl enthusiast?

Just wondering what the purpose of shining a light on an owl is. Thanks in advance for your clarification of this matter.

Only in pigments.

Light is the opposite.

bright enough for owl shining apparently, though I am still hoping to find out the point of such an exercise.

Google is your friend. Or, um, a physics textbook. In your world, our sun is black.

Anyway, I bought a two-pack (word up), and I hope both of mine arrive in delightful Woot green.

1 watt. 100 of them and you've got a bright lightbulb.

How do these compare to normal flashlights? Are these okay to go for night walks and such? Like what is the difference between a flashlight and a spotlight? When I think of spotlight I just think of a much brighter/bigger flashlight.

Black is the absence of color (and is therefore not a color)

White is the blending of all colors and is a color.

you got it the other way around dude

i'd suggest selling them to owls so they can people watch

I got a couple of these, for about the same price when they were on clearance at Walmart 1 1/2 years ago.

They're relatively bright, but still substantially dimmer than incandescent spotlights.
The runtime on these is far longer though

You can pick up 1,000,000 candlepower rechargeable spotlights for $20-30 at Wal-Mart, Target, and Lowe's. My dad and uncles all have 'em and use them for crabbing at the beach. I doubt these can compare.

I think these will throw a smaller diameter (more long range) spot than a flashlight. So they may not be as good for looking at your feet on a walk, but they'll be better for spotting the bears in the tree line.

I think I'm in for at least two...

Here is what I'm curious about: Do you have to hold the trigger down to keep the thing lit? Or does it "lock" on, like a flashlight?

Obviously you have to keep holding the handle to keep the light aimed, but I wouldn't want to hold the trigger down in order to keep the light from flickering. I've had lots of lights that did that, and it was a giant pain even before I started having grip problems.

1 Watt Luxeon® LED Spotlight beams more than 70 hours of light

Very long operating life (up to 100k hours)

Owls regurgitate bones and fur of digested prey in the form of a little organic sphere of mass, these lights would be great to spotlight that nature in action in the backyard the tree tops, two owls at once.

I'm a bit obsessed with LED's and I'm familiar with luxeon. It is a good LED but the 1 watt will only give you at most I'd guess 50-75 Lumens if your lucky and in all likelihood much less. To put that in perspective, a 100 watt lightbulb is aproxmiately 1500-1700 lumens.
