To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I ordered this for my brother in law for Christmas who loves all things camo. I just received this flashlight today and it looks more like big camo coloured pixels than a camo pattern, not what I was expecting. Of course from far away it looks great, but not so much up close. The flashlight itself is fantastic. I guess when it's dark you don't see the camo anyways.
They don't make then like they used to. This is my 2nd LED 3-Cell D Maglite. The first one stopped working and would always flicker out. I thought it was a fluke and ordered a new one. The new one is also garbage. The slightest bump or rattle causes the light to flicker or turn off and you have to tap it, smack it or shake it to turn it back on. The LED is bright when it works but these new LED lights are not nearly as durable as the old school versions that you could beat the heck out of. I would NOT recommend the new generation of Maglite to anyone. If you need something reliable, look elsewhere.
Das Wichtigste vorweg: Die Lampe ist unglaublich hell, der schneeweiße Leuchtpunkt fokussierbar und der Stromverbrauch des Leuchtmittels sehr gering.
Das Gehäuse ist aus Metall, von hoher Qualität, allerdings mit Batterien auch entsprechend schwer. Deutliches Manko ist allerdings, dass Ihnen die Lampe, einmal flach auf den Tisch gelegt, schnell herunterrollen kann. Sie ist nämlich kreisrund und aus der Schalter kann das Wegrollen nicht verhindern. Bei einer solchen Lampe erwarte ich schlicht, dass sich der Konstrukteur auch darüber Gedanken macht.
Der Ein- und Ausschalter ist eher schwer zu betätigen. Unter der Gummierung muss man den Schalter manchmal regelrecht ertasten. Alles in allem hatte ich - auch angesichts des Preises - mehr erwartet. Mit den genannten Verbesserungen hätte ich ansonsten gern die volle Punktzahl vergeben.
I've owned this for about 1.5 years now. Still works and is bright with the original batteries. Since purchasing, it will commonly flicker and become suddenly dim until I tap it a few times. Seems to happen when the flashlight is held horizontally. I'm disappointed with that given the history this brand has. A positive is that it recently fell from a 6 foot ladder onto a concrete floor and it still works, flickering and all.
Honestly Maglite, for being such a popular company, I expected more. For the same price as this item, you can buy another brand light which has a stronger brighter longer lasting beam. Not sure why people pay so much for these sub par lights... they look cool, but the beam is weak and yellowish. I returned mine, very disappointed.
Feels and lots like the real thing but after minimal usage I discovered a defect,that is there must be a short. The light us bright, if you can manage to keep it on without tapping it a bunch of times. I have tried numerous different battery brands and the song remains the same. I should have returned this. Its only good enough as a hand held weapon.VERY DISAPPOINTED.
