| Here's a HID flashlight from Surefire that's brighter, although I'm sure the one from Umnitza is a lot cheaper:
The HellFire target illuminator is designed for use on .50 caliber machine guns , and can also be used as a vehicle-mounted or hand-held spotlight (vehicle mounting hardware sold separately). Its shock isolated 35W HID lamp has an output of approximately 3500 lumens, and is powered by either the included cigarette lighter/power plug adapter, or two 5590 military batteries. The machine gun operator can select between momentary and constant-on activation by using an included hand grip which replaces the trigger grip on the machine gun handle. Because of its small size (8 inches) and light weight (10 lbs.) HellFire also can be used as a portable, hand-held light by detaching it from the included mounting sleeve and using the integrated carry handle. HellFire’s runtime when used this way (and powered by two 5590 batteries) is approximately 8 hours. HellFire’s body is built from an aluminum alloy with a hard-anodized MIL-A-8625 type III finish. A 5mm thick multi-coated Pyrex® window protects the HID lamp, and an amber filter on a pivoting mount protects the window during severe weather or while in storage. HellFire’s aluminum comes in a hard-shell storage case that is weatherproof and lockable.
