I originally purchased this “flashlight” intending it for a novelty item to scare the neighbors and show off to company. Little did I know this device had the ability to not only scare the neighbors but it could very well scare my friends in the UK if I was standing on the eastern shore of the US. Upon receiving this scorch torch I admired its well thought out components and fully charged this behemoth. I first turned it on in my apartment. Upon pressing the button I was nearly certain that at the exact same time a nuclear blast had occurred close by as a blinding brilliant white light shown all around me. My cat was so startled by the display she transformed into a bat, flew into the bathroom and hung upside down from the shower curtain rod and generally refuses to get down unless it is completely dark. I learned my lesson somewhat to never turn on this unholy beast inside of anywhere, except for maybe a football stadium in the event of a power loss so the game may continue. For my next test I went to the middle of a field in the darkest of night. I engaged the warp drive that is this flashlight and suddenly night turned into day. The power of the sun was in my cold shaky hands as if I could summon the power of a star in any general direction I wished. Ra himself looked down on my from the sky and we exchanged a look of affirmation and a nod. This was interrupted by a 747 closing in as it had mistaken my light as an entire airport. I quickly doused the lux machina and waved an apology to the pilot. We are good friends now and have brunch on Saturday afternoons. Long story short be wary and responsible with this lumen shootin doohickey otherwise you may end up starting world war three.
