AELight’s Xenide flashlight doesn’t look like much. Slapped into a blisterpack in a big-box grocery store, slung up next to cheap Maglight knockoffs and overpriced clockwork LED models, shoppers might well walk past it, unaware of its lurking, immemorial power.

But this thing is $500.00 USD. Why? Because it packs metal halide lamps similar to those used in fog lights, and projects 900 lumens almost a kilometer away.

Powered by a rechargeable Li-Ion battery pack, this overpowered torch weighs a stiff 8 pounds and has a fixed-focus lens and water-resistant casing.

For your money, you also get a bundled AC charger, shoulder strap and travel box.
