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.
First off, I love Streamlight flashlights. I have ProTacs on all of my long guns and they work great. I've also been carrying the regular micros for years and had no trouble with them. I don't know if it's just this particular model, but these have been very unreliable. This is the second one I have owned and it doesn't even work. I tried numerous batteries and no luck. The last one I owned worked for a few months and the just stopped working. I think I will just stick with the original micros from now on and save my money.
I’ve had other stream lights before but this one I feel like I constantly need to be recharging it. With camping it’s not always that easy. Not sure if there’s something wrong with the one I got. My fiancé has the red one and lasts longer.
After using this flashlight for an EDC, It’s not dependable. Today, after a year, I charged it up and it acts squirrelly. I press the end and nothing happens. I wait and then it works for a few seconds. I need consistency.
i’m not going to lie, i’m pretty bummed. i got this light to keep in my purse for walking home after dark and after only using it a handful of times it’s flickering non stop, won’t hold a charge and will just shut off at random. what a waste of 40 dollars that i definitely couldn’t afford to waste.
