Customer ReviewsWrite a review
First off I couldn't get it to charge but the very helpful customer service rep Amber told me to twist the lens end to activate the flashlight. That fixed it. This flashlight is beefy and puts out a tremendous amount of light. But it is also adjustable to whatever light you need. I would recommend this light to anyone that wants a high output flashlight. Thanks for a great product.
What a great flashlight! I can’t believe how much you get for so little. It has a very nice beam pattern with just the right amount of throw and flood. It’s big enough that it can handle turbo for a good long while and man is it ever bright. But not so big that it won’t fit in your pocket. I use it every night to do my chores.
Solid quality at a bargain price.
This is a must have for someone who is just starting their flashlight collection. Its affordable, simple to use and yet so powerful. I have purchased flashlights in retail stores that cost the same and isn't even as bright as this one. The user interface is very simple and easy to understand so you cant go wrong. I would definitely recommend this flashlight to family and friends. Well worth the money!
