The original was listed at 137 lumens, then they are currently listed at 145 lumens. They made a few that were 250 lumens. I have one of each, and I don't see the 250 lumen ones anymore, so it might have been a limited run. The ratings are listed on the packaging.
We love these lights. Lumen ratings can be deceptive when considering the distance range of the light. Reflector design is more important when seeking cleanly focused beams and tight enough focus to reach out to long ranges. These lights all beat lights rated much higher when it comes to reaching out. One simple indication of whether or not a light is a 'thrower' (one that has a long reach) is that the reflector will be smooth (not orange-peel textured), and most likely deep. That doesn't mean the orange-peel, and shallower reflector lights aren't any good, it just means that they are usually more 'floody' and better for shorter ranges, even if they might be technically brighter.
I highly recommend these Coleman lights.
