After some problems with my vehicle being broken into and vandalized, I moved it to a location where I could see it from my apartment, but recently, the street light above it has become intermittent, being off as much or more than on. I spoke with the apt. management about it, and was left with the feeling that what I got was lip service about replacing it.
Since I have not had any luck with getting a night vision serveilance camera working, I'm considering buying a handheld spotlight, so I can at least take a look if I hear anything suspicious. I have found a few that are affordable, but was surprised at how expensive some are.
Not having any experience with these, I get somewhat confused comparing them, because some only specify a wattage output, and some in candle power, like this one: 1-Million-CP Spotlight - Hand-Held, Cordless - Rechargeable w/ 6-Volt DC Charger - Yellow Optronics Lights GR-100Y
That sounds like a lot, but the price would seem to indicate less that it appears. I want a light that will brightly illuminate an area of ~ 20ft or more at a distance of 100-125ft away.
Most lights do not specify this in a fashion that I understand. Is there a way to evaluate this for my purposes?
