This is a comparison of powerful, portable, self-contained throwers, modded as well a stock. The luminous intensity (candela, "lux@1m") was carefully researched for each light and is usually the (highest) value measured in the longest distance. The Thrunite TN-42 as the current best stock LED thrower can be considered a bechmark for all the other lights. The maglite 6D and the older Olight SR-90 are included for additional reference. The diameter of the reflector or optic of each light was also researched, but some values required an educated guess based on the bezel diameter and pictures of the lights. The names of the lights include a link to where the luminous intensity was found.
