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.
Very bright, great distance too, only Downside is when the spring has been compressed for so long it allows the batteries inside to move around which can affect performance. Nothing that a little stretching can't fix though. It's been dropped well over 100 times and still works great.
Provides a very good adjustable beam width light over a huge distance - 50ft no problem outside. The aluminium case will no doubt dent quite easily if dropped etc but it is otherwise very robust. Blue colour is an extortionate price compared to others, and the overall price is far too high anyway for what it is. The G*cchi statement handbag of the torch world and a cheap multi led torch from a supermarket would do a sufficiently similar job if we are honest about it.
Bought for winter dog walks, good bright light (age old annoying dead spot in the middle of the flood beam as per all Maglites). Also havy enough to be used in self defence if required... confidence building in the dark and forboding woods...
A very well constructed torch that should stand up to a fair few knocks without complaining. The led lights give a bright beam but I cannot comment on the battery life yet. Slight moan about the difficulty in screwing on the end cap after fitting the batteries. This has quite a shallow depth so you have to compress the spring very forcibly to allow the thread to engage with the body. This would probably be very difficult for anyone who did not have the requisite physical strength. That apart, a good buy in my estimation.
This torch is a natural upgrade to the standard 2 cell maglite. Whilst not at the cutting edge of light output from this sort of torch it still bests the std bulb edition.
Also included with this light is a std bulb in the tailcap as well as the installed LED. Interesting enough this must be a recent edition as a 3-Cell LED maglite I bought about a year ago didn't have this option.
I always prefer the silver version of these maglites as they are much easier to find in the dark.
Arrived on time and in excellent condition. Reason I gave it 4-stars was nothing to do with lack of service, just that the item would have been more handy if it had a loop or clip to hang it up. With batteries it's extremely heavy and, if you have small (female) hands, quite chunky to grip. On reflection, maybe I should have chosen a smaller, lighted model. On the bright side(!) it is excellent at illuminating the way ahead or dark areas.
Very impressed with the power and range of this torch. Helps massively on an evening dog walk and doubles up as a cosh for any would-be mugger so can't be a bad thing. I wouldn't say it's bulletproof as I've dropped it a couple of times and it went through a period of flickering and me having to knock it in my palm to get it to work but it's been working lovely for a while now so I'm most impressed if I have the world's first self healing torch!
Torch works well and a quality item. Lifetime guarantee a waste of time as it involves sending it back to USA and paying a15$ admin. fee which when added to the postage costs will buy you another torch. If it goes wrong in a reasonable time suggest return to Amazon quoting Sale of Goods Act 1979.
This product is extremely sturdy and somewhat heavy for a torch, which is a good thing because a lighter torch would be easier to drop. Very easy to grip therefore, very nice feel in the hand, very powerful beam. Only grouch, battery life is not excellent. After maybe 3 Scout Camps, battery was done, however this was with extended use, so probably down to users own fault. However, depending on how you intend to use, very powerful tool, very nicely built and extremely useful.
