Boo hoo hoo I've lost my favorite flashlight: a 3-C 9-watt (Three 3-Watt bulbs) model that went with me everywhere.

1. Lumens, Candlepower & lux confuses the heck out of me, and
2. It seems apparent that not all 3-watt bulbs are equal.

I want to stick with LED - and I prefer a 3-C or 4-C as far as body size goes... so what should I look for?

I'm looking at this 400 lumen 4-C model but wonder: Can I find brighter?

... is there a brand that is on the cutting edge of LED lights that in the flashlight industry "just can't be beat".

Any suggestions?
