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.
This is a very sturdy and well made piece of equipment. However the battery life is nothing short of criminal and at £3 for a pair of Duracell that is a very expensive way to shed some light on something! In fact the battery life is so poor that at first I thought thee torch or the batteries were faulty and returned them for a replacement. Sadly the replacement is just as bad.
On the plus side, as I say, the torch is very well made and it pretty bright for an hour or so until the batteries start to fade and then it's just plain useless. Would I recommend it? No. Would I recommend it at half the price? probably still no.
Such a shame. An iconic design bordering on modern art, let down by a terrible focusing mechanism. Any focus setting apart from a very small window results in a really off-putting dark spot in the middle.
Couple of other downsides: the spring in the endcap is unnecessarily strong making closing it much harder then it needs to be. The led performance is far behind modern flashlights.

Bereits nach wenigen Tagen ging der Einschaltknopf ab und verloren. Statt einfach einen neuen Knopf zu schicken verweist der Kundenservice von Maglite auf die Firma die Maglite in Deutschland vertritt, alternativ auf Amazon, will mit dem Problem also nichts zu tun haben, trotz Garantieversprechen (10 Jahre Garantie). Ergebnis: ist musste mir für mehr als 9 Euro (fast ein Drittel des Preises!) einen neuen Knopf kaufen. Qualität und Service nicht zufriedenstellend!
