NiteHawk K2 vs Dinotte 200L

Just curious but does anyone know the lumens the K2 puts out?

Also which is brighter?

K2 (scroll down)

200L


If James is here or someone can hail James I'd like his opinion on this as well.

Thanks.

NiteHawk was rather stiff lipped about the brightness in lumens when I asked.

If the K2 in NiteHawk can infer a Luxeon K2 emitter then the light output will be at best 140 Lumens.
The Dinotte 200Ls probably use Seoul Z-LED P4 ( 240 Lumens max ) to get their quoted 200 Lumens output.

On a related note, I was just looking at the K2 on the weekend. The power switch was almost impossible to push.

The Seoul is approximately twice as efficient as the Luxeon.

I never could figure out the manufacturers that spec a switch that's hard to push -
are they making the user think twice about using the light?
