500 LED Extreme flashlight
Homemade 500 LED extreme flashlight. I made this flashlight back in 2008, of course LED technology has much improved over the years. But it still outputs around 3250 lumens! Around 45 watt of LED power, don't underestimate it, despite his age :) Sorry for the lack of music or voice over. I never expected this video to go viral, And I cannot update the video to make it better. I created a new extreme flashlight that will be uploaded soon, a high quality video with 3D animations, music and voiceover. Subscribe so you won't miss my latest creation. Check for more info
