"for indoors, I have never...ever wanted a flashlight more than 100LUM. I really prefer something around 86LUM for indoor use. I cant imagine waking up to a noise in my dark house and turning on a 300-400-495LUM flashlight!?? I would reserve that kind of light for outdoor only. " -- Quote from FireForge.
I actually keep two lights in my bedroom. One is for looking around, and is less than 40 Lum. However; if a stranger is in my house, I don't go "looking around".
The 500 Lum is for a different purpose. It can disorient someone and buy me a few seconds. A few seconds can be a lot.
