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 light is built like a safe, and I like that. he swivel head and magnetic bottom are genius, so far. The magnet can be a double-edged sword, picking up things you don't want to. What highly disappoints me is the lumen claim. It isn't 800 lumen, not even close. My Streamlight Strion 275 lumen is much, much, (did I say MUCH?) brighter than this. That takes a lot of stars out of this review. It was delivered so quickly I think they knew I was going to order it. And it was packaged quite well. Instructions are straight forward with only a little bit of language error. But I'm pretty sure that if my cell phone light had a narrower diameter beam, it would be about as bright. Seriously. If you're looking for brightness, look elsewhere. If you are looking for a good, medium bright light, this is the one. Well, it could be. If I paid full price I'd send it back, but I didn't so the value works out OK for me.
But it busted after a few uses. The flashes on/off consistently (similar to what others say) even with fresh batteries. Do not recommend it as many others have noted the same issue. I would have been with the brightness but the constant on/off makes it unuseable.
I get that some lights have a strobe effect, but this thing will randomly start flashing then shut off. For something I wanted strapped to my chest while running, that didn't really work. Also, it's heavy. Maybe this works better as a more stationary light. For that reason, I'll give it two stars instead of the single star I wanted to give.
