When someone asks for an affordable, high output light the JETBeam BC40 is the one that I mention almost every time. The performance is amazing at its very modest price, which is well under 100 dollars.

Using a CREE XM-L and 4 CR123 batteries the BC40 can spit out 830 lumens on the max brightness setting. Performance like that is mostly only seen in high dollar lights which are 4 to 5 times the cost of the BC40. The version in the video uses a warm tint LED which will represent colors with higher fidelity. The warmer tint means that greens and browns will still be green and brown, without having a blue tint cast over them.

With output that high and a price that low, there is a reason the BC40 is one of our most popular lights. If you’re in the market for a mega torch that won’t break the bank, then look no further than the BC40. Seriously, it’s that good.
