Never claimed that (the smart bit). Not rich either - definitely one of the 99%

Claimed. The spec says they use the CREE XM-L LEDs and the referenced URL shows the highest output LEDs available from CREE is 280lm. So either there's other CREE LEDs that are of higher output being used (likely), or their numbers are sales-speak and not based on anything real-world.

And I don't either. BUT, I can comment on it, can't I
