    Flashlight's over 1000 Lumens - Anker LC90 led flashlight

    Does anyone know where to buy this or the Anker LC130 led flashlight in Hong Kong? I am doing a lot of night fishing in reservoirs and it gets pitch black. I have bought 2 flash lights, but both were Chinese products and the package did not state the lumens. Turns out they are both about 50-100 lumens.

    Is there a shop where they sell over 1000 lumens flash lights?

    Save yourself some time and just order something online, this one is waterproof and brighter as an example:

    I don't know of any shops selling anker and unsure as to why you are focused on this brand/model when there are so many comparable or better brands readily available.

    Apliu St in kowloon has plenty of shops selling major brands like Nitecore, Fenix, Klarus etc.
    All these brands have models with high lumen output to about 3000 lumens.

    On the island, there is a good little shop on northwest aisle of 2nd floor of the computer mall 298 Hennessy Rd.

    The only problem with banggood is that is really does take 2-3 weeks shipping time, even from China to HK that you naturally assume will be quicker. So be prepared to sit and wait.

    I was pleasantly surprised to try aliexpress for the first time a few days ago, also said 2-3 week shipping time, but I was shocked my order arrived within 24 hours. I actually got the email that says "Your order has shipped!" after the box was already sitting on my desk.

    I've had Aliexpress stuff arrive next business day (Friday-Monday) and other stuff take 4 weeks.

    On the subject of cheap flashlights- I wouldn't believe any of the lumen figures on those things. Including the Anker. The good thing about buying at a store is you can test it first. But for walking around in the dark in HK, lumen figures are not a big deal.

    Another option for technical stuff, Gearbest.

    Here is actually a list of China shopping sites that do not scam:

    OK I admit it Im a flashaholic (addicted to flashlights since a kid).

    I have way more flashlights then I could possibly justify.
    I have big and little lites with high lumen and/or big throw but my favourite EDC lite is a tiny Nitecore EC11, 900 lumens and 190 meter throw in a less than 3 form.

    I usually buy the big brands but two of my best lights are an AceBeam L16 (expensive, 2000 lumen, 600+ meter throw)) and a Haikelite SC01.

    Sources I use in order: Aliexpress, Banggood, Gearbest, Aplui St.

    Have not bought flashlights, but have had good experience shopping on DX.
