I thought my other led flashlight was going to be hard to equal till I received this one and added the batteries and turned it on. WOW!!! This flashlight drowns out the other with light that is truthfully at least 20 times brighter. I love the size, the all metal construction, the watertight construction, the zoom focus and variable intensity. I do prefer a side mounted on/off switch, as to this tactical position, but that’s trivial. This is the brightest light I have ever had, bar none. I believe it will last for years. The sale price for the quality is unbeatable. I may get another 1 or 2 for family. I highly recommend this product.
-Solid metal construction. It’s big. I’ve added a photo of it next to a standard water bottle and a Maglite Mini LED. I didn’t know that simply holding a flashlight could make someone feel so powerful. This one does it!
-The weight is perfect. Just heavy enough to feel high-quality but not too heavy to carry for a long time.
-The body texture feels very nice to hold.
-Moving parts are super smooth.
-Beam can be super wide or super narrow depending on zoom level.
-Easy to switch between modes.
-Takes conventional/rechargeable AA batteries.
-Batteries are difficult to remove from the internal holder/tray.
-Small annoyance but you have to wait about 5-10 seconds after turning off the light before the mode resets to the default brightest setting. Otherwise, it will switch to the mode after the one you were just on (for example, the order of modes is High, Medium, Low, Strobe, SOS. So turning it off while in Low and back on again within 5-10 seconds will make the light go into Strobe mode). Maybe a shorter reset time would be nice.
