Whereas the sun only puts out mere 98,000 lumens per square meter. I'm beginning to think something is fishy with the way these guys are advertising their products. Kind of like those snake oil salesmen of yesteryear...

I don't think that anyone is trying to claim that these lights are brighter than the sun. The sun has way more square meters than these tiny little LEDs have.

Yeah, there's one being advertised on Facebook the last week or so with an ungodly amount of Lumens. I'd rank it right up there with the $150 Oakley and Ray Ban sunglasses for "only" $19.95. In other words, total scam. In fact this morning's news had a feature on all the phony scam products suddenly popping up on social media.
Looks like klhansen and I have the same light, bet he would agree, plenty bright.
