The battery lock system on a divide + 250L LED flashlight stops battery drain, so you’ll have the power you need when you need it most. On a normal flashlight, there is always some residual drain as long as the battery is connected in the circuit, even when the light is off. With a simple twist of the bezel, you can completely disengage your batteries, so they can be stored in your flashlight for years (up to their inherent shelf life). You’ll also reduce the toxic corrosion that can damage your flashlight. The strong, lightweight aluminium construction is impact and water resistant, while the single button makes operation of your flashlight simple. No matter the situation, from power outages to roadside emergencies, a flashlight with the battery lock system is ready, even when you aren’t.

I was initially trying to order an additional Coleman CT20, of which I already have and continues to be reliable, but it was unavailable. Bummer.
The Divide flashlight comes packaged in hard plastic that is definitely not frustration-free packaging. You will have to destroy the packaging to get the flashlight out of the package. Included are two AA Duracell batteries and a small instruction sheet. There is also a wrist lanyard on the end of the flashlight that is not depicted in the product photos but is installed on the light right out of the package. It is easily removed if desired. The instruction sheet offers very little information. It really does not do a good job of telling you how to orient the batteries. There is a small graphic printed on the side of the flashlight that shows the battery direction, but even that is not very clear. You unscrew the bottom cap of the flashlight and install the two AA batteries with the positive terminal going in first. The cap screws down against the negative (flat) end of the battery. The construction of the flashlight feels very solid and sturdy. It is all metal and feels like it is made of lightweight aircraft aluminum. I'm sure it was designed to be able to stand up to punishment.
Operation of the flashlight is straightforward and largely intuitive. You press the button on the end cap of flashlight to turn it on or off. The flashlight turns on with the brightest setting by default. You can dim it by pressing the button a second time. A third press of the button turns it off. There is no strobe function with this particular flashlight. The brightness of the flashlight's CREE LED is low to medium in intensity. Unlike many other similar flashlights, the beam is not adjustable. It is not the brightest light you will find in a compact flashlight, and there are many other similar products with much brighter output for similar cost. This light is not intended to be a self-defense flashlight, so its brightness is adequate for duty around the home, to keep handy in a toolbox, or to keep in the glove box of a car. In my case, I plan to keep in in the saddlebag of my motorcycle.
What sets the Divide flashlight apart from other flashlights is the ability to easily disconnect the batteries from the circuit to prolong battery life. This is done with a simple twist of the front end of the flashlight. When twisted so the red band is showing the flashlight cannot be turned on. The flashlight can be turned on or off this way, too, so if you don't want to have to push the end button you can turn the flashlight on or off by twisting the front end. It remains to be seen how well this will prolong battery life. I'm sure it reduces some of the drain, but the batteries are still sitting in the flashlight end to end, so there will always be some drain on them.
Overall, I like the Divide flashlight. It's compact size is just right for storage on my motorcycle and would be handy to keep in a drawer or toolbox around the home. It uses inexpensive AA batteries, which is a plus. It is bright enough for most uses around the house but would not be a good choice for a self-defense flashlight or for those wanting maximal brightness for usage outdoors in the dark. Compared with other flashlights that are comparable in size and much brighter, this product is expensive. What you are mostly paying for with this product is the solid construction, the ability to conserve battery life, and the Coleman name.
The housing is 6 1/2 inches long and 1 1/4 inches in diameter at its widest point. The housing is made of aluminum and so it is lightweight. The button to turn on the flashlight is recessed at the back end of the flashlight. The button is deep enough and rigid enough that it is difficult to press it with your thumb while holding the flashlight in your hand. The button could have been done so much better. My Maglite XL200 flashlight has a similar setup, but the Maglite is far easier to press.
Pressing on the button the first time turns the light on at its highest setting. Pressing the button a second time reduces the brightness. Pressing a third time turns the light off.
The batteries are disengaged to save battery life by twisting the front of the flashlight. Twisting the front end reveals a red colored section of the housing so that it is easy to see that the battery lock feature has been engaged.
The flashlight comes with a strap already attached to the housing which is a nice touch.
This is a flashlight which is going in my car for those times when I need a flashlight. With the battery lock feature, hopefully the batteries will last for a while. For this purpose, I think that the Coleman Divide+ 250L LED flashlight will work well. But, I wouldnt use the Coleman flashlight as the light I take with me when I go running at night or when I am out geocaching at night. The Maglite XL200 is smaller, as bright and more comfortable to use for these purposes.
As for its flashlight abilities, it is super bright and has a two position switch that varies brightness and power usage.
So when you need just a little light, you can click the switch and get that, saving battery power. For that pierce the gloom power, the switch clicks easily to get that... And it's really bright! But it really cuts into battery life.
Another few thoughts. First, it uses inexpensive AA batteries instead of very expensive, hard to get 3Volt batteries that power other super bright units. Next, it has a lanyard. I think it makes using it around water (drop it into the lake and it's gone) safer. Finally, it doesn't have an adjustable beam. The factory setting is perfect and that's how it should be.
Need a nice flashlight, at the right price, this is it.
