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 my 3 or 4th maglite. I keep buying them not because they break, but because they are the best. All Maglites I have still work as when they were new - they have scratches, dings, etc., but they still going. This one is no exception. Very bright light, as advertised, very well built as usual, solid unit made of quality materials that will last for a long time. Simply the best. An old Volvo commercial comes to mind when I talk Maglite - "don't buy it, it will outlast you!"
There's not a lot to say about this except it's really really REALLY bright. The only thing I could criticise it on is that when you turn it to "flood", it's not really a big flood or light - more just a slightly wider "spot". But when you have it turned to "spot" it really is a "spot". The amount of brightness you get from the 3 x D Cell batteries is insane. Even when you press the button to put it in ECO mode, it is still very bright and is enough for most applications where you would need a torch. All round a well built, solid torch - as you would expect from Maglite.
Don't underestimate the power of this torch it is brilliant. In pitch black country lanes this provides more light than a car on full beam. Hard to believe but it made me laugh when I used it the first time on a winter evening ramble. Don't be put off by the price it's worth every penny.
Excellent quality, good distance and strength of beam, the eco setting is perfect for dog walking extending the battery life when the full power of the torch is not needed. Very pleased with this purchase. It’s too big and heavy for long distance walks but perfect for searching fields and woods for lost pets, farm animals etc.
