This is a very nice, well made, very functional Flashlight, especially for the $25.00 price. It appears and works like a flashlight costing 2 or3 times what I paid. The swivel head is a very nice option, along with the strong end-cap magnet This allows the light to be attached to a metal object for hands free use. The high mode light is bright, but won’t blow you away. The switch location takes a little getting used to, but definitely not a game changer. I will update this review if I have any difficulties, but don’t expect any at this point.
I do like that this has a magnet. I keep it stuck to my fridge ready to grab, and it's helpful when working on cars as I can shine the light right where i want it. That being said, the battery life is so atrocious that it's barely useable. I'm lucky to get maybe an hour per set? The last few months we only have used it a minute or two at a time to take our new puppy outside at night and just with that usage I've had to replace the batteries several times.
I expect this light to be handed down in my will, it’s that sturdy. The two step switch would be better if the second is very dim, instead of just a bit lower. But after giving one to my son, I bought another for me. Sturdy, bright, the 90⁰ head, the magnet and the switch location are great features & this light is a great value.
Great light output, smooth swivel on the rotating head, and the versatility to take a rechargeable 18650 lithium ion battery or 3 AAAs make this a pretty good daily driver of a flashlight. I ended up picking up some rechargeable streamlight batteries after trying to use this light with AAAs because its can chew through them pretty fast, that's the only suggestion I have if you're going to pick up one of these.
Probably works good using the AAA adapter, but I bought it to use my 18650 batteries, which fit way too losely, if the flashlight is joleted hard enough, it appears the battery loses connection between the spring and positive terminal and won't turn on, have to remove the cap and back on to make it work again. Also the flashlight was too thick and long for my preference.
I bought this flashlight to use at my job as a technician at an arcade/bar/movie theater/general entertainment center sort of place. It's been extremely helpful! It's very bright for its size, and the swiveling head and magnet allow it to be mounted and aimed where you need it while your hands stay free to do your work. Good size too. It fits perfectly into my tool pouch on my belt.
I keep this flashlight on my duty belt and utilize it for many tasks. It is bright enough for dark rooms and dark parking lots. The double angel head allows me to carry it in different positions depending on needs. I have yet to use the magnetic end, but it is strong and I am sure it will come in handy some time.
I would have loved it if it came with batteries for the price. Given that this is made in China, I am sure batteries could have been included. Build quality is definitely good. Feel light and good to hold. The quality of battery you put in will decide the amount of lumens it will throw. So use good quality batteries.
