LUX VERDICT: ★★★

If you’re looking for high output in a small package then this is your baby. The well-engineered Hurricane 50 can be mounted in a 100mm diameter format and has an innovative liquid-cooled heatsink that gives up to 1,000 lumens with a decent efficacy, a respectable CRI and a warm colour temperature.

WHAT SPECIFIERS SAY:

ACDC Evolution Devil Cree XPE (9 LEDs)
The ACDC Evolution is the first I have seen that begins to match the quality of light produced by tungsten halogen. Colours are well rendered and efficiencies are good. The only downsides are the depth required to accommodate the heat sink and the cost.
