Unlike LED flashlights, an LEP flashlight uses a laser as its light source. LEP stands forLaser Excited Phosphorand these types of flashlights are extremely bright in the center of the beam, and without any real spill.
LEP uses a blue laser as its light source instead of a light emitting diode (LED) so the output beam or the output intensity increases significantly. On certain LEP flashlights you will see close to 2 million candelas with a distance of close to 2 miles!
Can LEP flashlights cause eye damage?
These flashlights are no more dangerous than any standard LED flashlight. Just as with any strong light source, pointing it directly into anyone's eyes is not recommended andcould result in retinal damage.
Before you purchase a LEP Flashlight check your local/state laws regarding LEP flashlights
