You gotta get the military flashlights. They don't strobe, its either on or you half press the button for 1 single short burst

As mentioned already, most Lumen claims are wildly inflated. They usually say something like "300 Lumen LED," and when you look, the LED is rated for 300 lumens, but at 5 volts, while the light in question runs it at 1.5 or 3 or 4.5 volts, which necessarily produce far less light.
Some high-end flashlights do have voltage converters, so they can run at a higher voltage with a single AA, but that's not so common at or near this price point.
So, does anyone know how many lumens this thing actually puts out? Inquiring minds want to know!
I'm supposed to buy something? But we're having so much fun with things as they are, I don't want to ruin it!
