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.
Feels like a very strong and well made and well finished product but these torches have an issue with batteries overheating and leaking inside them. If a battery leaks inside for any reason, you will never ever be able to use the torch again. Ever. A simple solution would be to line the interior of the torch with a plastic or silicone sheath, so I don't know why a quality brand product with a great reputation won't do something about this issue ...
Ordered the original Maglite torch for my husband who is a surveyor and has always had this brand in the past as they were reliable, bright torches - good in dark roof spaces and cellars. Thought the batteries must have been faulty at first as the light varied even though it was not being adjusted but new batteries made no difference. Returned item and had a replacement thinking this one would be fine. Unfortunately its performance was just as bad. Very disappointing for the amount it cost.
Awesome flashlight! Feels really good in hand as its heavy and has a nice feel to it. Good for bashing in the skulls of zombies if this virus gets any worse. Js might need to think of other options when it comes to sweet little grandma...she’ll turn first
Definitely the best torch I have ever used. Very sturdy with a great bright light and very impressive range. IMO the LED upgrade is essential as it really gives it a way better look range and battery life.
Very sturdy flashlight. Bought to be kept in boot of my car in case of emergencies. Added the upgrade of LED light to it and has made it super bright. Highly recommend the torch as its super sturdy and easy to use.
