In The Lab: AE Xenide HID Flashlight

Hot on the heels of my review of Wicked Lasers' Elite Series 150+ green laser comes the AE Xenide flashlight. The Xenide utilizes a High Intensity Discharge system similar to the HID/Xenon headlights found in newer cars. This is no pedestrian flashlight by any means. I'll be writing a full review with many pictures (as usual) when I clear out some time with final exams and everything, but here are some photos.

The particular demo unit I have on hand is the 20 Watt Xenide flashlight, which is a mid-range offering compared to their other 15 and 25 Watt Xenide models. It's extremely rugged and bright. While I don't recommend doing so, I was able to light up a building in downtown at least a 1/4 mile away. I can also imagine the Xenide would come in handy whilst chasing Sasquatch through the forest at night.

This just might be the thing to get that geek that has everything this holiday season.
