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.
A owned one, loved it, probably an original one bought in the USA and used for a couple years till it was stolen. Ordered another one June 2020 from Amazon, felt cheap but worked a couple times and now it’s dead. With fresh batteries etc the light does not come on anymore. It hasn’t been abused, dropped nor dunked in water and now I have no clue who can fix it here in india! Life sucks!! Here is the serial number if maglite is listening: XL5ACW01055488 and wants to help.
Was from Amazon warehouse and was not new and had scratches and batteries not original ones that came with the flashlight. But Amazon adjusted the price and seemed like a good deal. The batteries were also good. Have not tested the water resistance. Was also a XL 200 instead or XL 50. Would buy again.
Pleased with this except the batteries that came with it lasted about ten minutes of intermittent use and it’s a bit of a hassle to change. Replaced with Duracell, and still working, but I haven’t used it a lot lately.
I bought one of these lights from walmart 8 years ago and its just as good as the new one i just bought on Amazon its an amazing long lasting light i have used this light endless i have beat it up and it's still working amazingly Maglite is the only brand i have owned and has lasted
