LED vs Incandescent? Answered

Is it just me, or do incandescent torches generally have more throw than LED ones with the same power?
P.S : I recently found a 3V, 0.3A xenon torch globe. Would you say that it would be brighter than a 2.4V 0.7A torch globe if they are both run off 2 AA batteries?

LEDs and discharge-tubes are more efficient than filament-bulbs in producing light from electricity.
So your answer is: power-to light: LEDs are better, but the design of the device might make better use of light-output, depending.
