First off, prepare for wall of text, but there is a lot to cover. Great light. Use it every night as a night shift Police Officer. While the job is inherently dangerous, this flashlight helps alleviate some of the danger by providing bright light whenever needed.
Whether it is being able to clearly see drivers/passengers on traffic stops, or simply walking around dark areas on calls for service, this light does the trick and it does it well. Another nice feature this flashlight has, is its multifunction button.
2 taps allows for a strobe light, while 3 rapid taps gives a slightly less bright light. I personally use the slightly less bright light for searching bags, or other objects where the brightest setting kind of blinds me or basically makes it so objects arent easily visible due to reflections or simply being too bright.
Battery is more than capable of withstanding 12 hour shifts (which is what I work). I usually charge it when I get home and by the time I wake for my next shift its ready to go. If I do forget to charge it, it comes with a usb charging cable which makes charging it in the patrol car highly convenient.
It will not charge as fast as being plugged into a wall, but it definitely comes in handy in a pinch. My only gripe (which is a bit picky I will admit) is that the carrying case it comes with is a little cheap as it is only Velcro.
Would be great if Streamlight would come out with a sturdy Kidex holder for this light to purchase separately. Other than that I see no flaws so far. At just around 75 dollars this is a perfect flashlight to use everyday.
I once spent 160 dollars on another flashlight only to have it fall off my duty belt and become someone elses light. I wont mention what type it was, but it was also a great flashlight, however, at 160 dollars it was quite a loss.
So for around 90 dollars less this light performs just as good, is a bit smaller and wont necessarily be such a kick in the gut if its lost. Buy this light, you wont be disappointed.
The perfect size for edc, it’s a little thick, but it will fit into just about any pocket you need it to. I carry mine on an rcs pocket shield and the stock clip rides a little low in the pocket, a thyrm switchback put a it at the perfect height.
The recessed button makes it tricky to perform techniques such as the Rogers technique or using previously mentioned switchback, the tailcap can bite your knuckles if you aren’t careful, but this is ultimately a training issue that can be overcome.
As far as the light itself, obscenely bright is the best way to describe it. I have it out when I walk the dogs and it will light up the whole alleyway if I let it. It cuts through photonic barriers very easily, and has a tremendous range, the hot spot physically hurts if shone directly in the eyes.
Ten taps is very intuitive, I switched it to high only and never looked back The light is in and of itself worth the price of admission, but the batteries add a whole new level of convenience to them.
Cr123s may be the industry standard, but they’re a pain to keep stocked. Now I can just charge them on the same cord as my phone and be good to go for a week, the spares I store in my bag so I always have a backup, I’ll probably spring for a cellvault, LAPG, if you were to start stocking thyrm, I would be all over that Overall this is a tremendous value, it’s not the brightest light in its weight class, but it’s access to valued accessories like the 2nd generation switchback and it’s brilliant fueling system make it the perfect alternative to surefire.
I’m a big fan of Streamlight. Anything they make runs like a tank. Throw them, beat them, they still run. This is my second one of these I own. I bought this one for home and my truck. The other is on my duty belt for work.
I trust this light with my life on duty. Its cool because you can use either the rechargeable 18650 battery which lasts forever or two CR123A’s. Still maintains the same brightness. I actually carry a second 18650 in my bag, and a few spare CR123A’s as well.
I’ve never had to use them. The only thing I didn’t like about it was the belt clip. I just took that off. The open screw holes still leave it sealed. I use a round Safariland holder for mine, fit for the Surefire 6P.
Fits fine. This light for its size is extremely bright. Lights up a room, building or a back yard.

This is an excellent full-time carry light. The switch always works, the beam spread and distribution is an ideal compromise between searchlight and spotlight from close in to 150 feet out or more it delivers what is needed.
sure AA batteries are cheaper, but I carry a light as a life support tool, and I want the most power in a small, durable, reliable package, with simple operation. The Streamlight Protac 1L delivers on all fronts.
It is a compliment to my duty light, Streamlight’s Strion, and having to learn one set of switch operations facilitates continuity of training. Are there lights with more functions? Absolutely, but under stress, less is more, and simplicity is your friend.
For work lights, or when my bacon is in the fryer, I use Streamlight and Surefire lights. They’re not the only lights I own, but they’re the ones I grab when needing a light is important, and with the size and weight of the Protac, there’s no excuse to not have a light with you.
I purchased this flashlight for my wife’s car. It uses two CR123 batteries, and these have incredible shelf life. There are five different outputs, three regular brightnesses, strobe, and SOS. Unfortunately, selection is all done from the single button on the rear.
You must quickly (not too fast or slow) repeatedly push the button to set through the settings, and stop when you get the one you want. The three brightness levels are excellent, and battery life is outstanding.
The full size ProTac HL 5-X features a super bright C4 LED that delivers 3,500 lumens of powerful light. This “Multi-Fuel” flashlight uses either Streamlight’s SL-B26 Li-Ion rechargeable battery packs or four CR123A lithium batteries.
TEN-TAP programming allows the choice of three user-selectable programs to toggle between commonly used modes. The ProTac HL 5-X is made with durable, anodized aluminum and is IPX7 waterproof rated to 1m for 30 minutes.
A rubber sleeve provides thermal insulation and a sure grip.
I’ve had mine for a few years, still LOVE it! Yes, as bright as everyone is saying. Seriously bright; when you turn this on to high everyone around instantly knows you are now in charge of lighting. Claims of battery life are subjective: it all depends on the ACTUAL mAh capability.
Use good batteries! My experience has been there’s plenty of runtime. I use high mode sparingly with this model; it’s so bright it’s necessary situationally. Low is plenty bright for most tasks & really extends runtime.
High is true though, not a temporary “turbo” mode – you can use it continually. Heat: your hand is fine. Just do not ever set it down lens down while on. The hand grip is perfect! Switch placement & operation is perfect.
I wish Streamlight had more options for 10-tap. Lots of comments about no integrated charging. Personally I don’t want that. My lights are just that, not rechargers. And no extra cost spent, and no holes to plug securely.
Sure swapping batteries isn’t _convenient_, but it’s much better than parking the flashlight to recharge. Build quality is supreme! Tail cap threads are secure, does not “scrape” or leave any metal dust, and seats with good resistance when getting tight.
O-rings are quality thus far for several years. The hand grip is supreme quality; does not slip around. The switch feels solid & sure, with a tactile & audible click that’s not too loud. I have little trouble changing modes (and there’s such a definite difference there’s no guessing which one is active).
The switch has not changed in the few years I’ve had it. Fair to note my usage is light/occasional. A D-cell belt loop will carry this model, albeit very loosely. I found a nylon belt holster that covers the entire head, holds securely though rigid (no rotation for sitting, Etc.
There may be other options now. This will not fit in a pocket unless it’s as big as the light. It’s heavy but not inappropriately so.
My old go to flashlight was a Mag Lite ML300L 3-cell D that also has momentary and strobe functions. This Streamlight ProTac HL 5-X is smaller and significantly brighter. I like that you have the option of using the provided rechargeable 18650 batteries or four CR123A batteries.
It does feel more substantial in the hand, almost heavy, and you certainly would not want to get hit with the head of the ProTac which is milled aluminum! I have not used it with the CR123A batteries, but the specs say the rechargeable 18650 batteries provide a significantly brighter beam.
The Mag Lite might be easier to carry on a belt due to the handle length when using a ring, so consider that if it matters, but Id feel comfortable using a ring with the ProTac. See pics. The difference in brightness between these two flashlights is night and day.
The Pro Tac has a significantly brighter beam and maintains that brightness with a much wider field of view than the Mag Lite is capable of doing. You might be thinking, that is an apple versus orange comparison, and you are right.
However, I believe the ProTac is definitely worth 2 to 3 times the cost of the Mag Lite.
Great light. Use it for work. Batteries are neat, but you have to open up the back of the flashlight to remove them, then plug both of them in to charge them. Not a big deal, but it would be easier just to plug it in without removing the batteries.
Had it for over 1 year, and so far the Stream Light batteries are lasting. The batteries have lights (red when charging, green when charged) in them. The spring on the back compresses sometimes which makes the light inoperative.
Simple fix is to pull it / extend it a little bit. Otherwise it’s a great high powered light when you need it. Love the option to program the settings (high, medium, low, and strobe).

Reviews From Real Customers
This is a great light for several reasons. I keep one in all the cars with a cr123 in them for emergency needs. They just work when you need them. Nice and small, also carry one on me or in my briefcase.
It takes at least 5 different types of battery that I have found so far. I know that streamlight specifically states not to use Rcr123a rechargeables, but they work fine. Even better is that it runs on 14500 batteries.
Now you do lose the low brightness when using rechargeables, its more like bright and slightly less bright. Strobe still works fine. But it is brighter than using cr123s for sure. Ive done some pretty extensive testing with this and have run into no reliability issues yet.
So you can run off 1AA, 1AAA, Cr123, Rcr123a, and 14500. In my testing a 800Mah 14500 will run bright for about an hour. Then it will diminish from about 280 lumens to about 50 lumens (as unscientificly measured against other flashlights of known lumen output) over the next 30 minutes.
I stop testing at 1. 5 hours, but expect it would just continue to dim and probably give you another 15-30 minutes of useable light. The light gets just as warm as it does with a Cr123 and then cools as the lumens decrease.
The best part is that as compared to my Streamlight 2L-X it has slightly better throw. The 2L-X most likely still puts out more lumens, but it is hard to tell in the dark. They look nearly identical.
This light just throws slightly farther and still has great spill. This light is nice and small and the clip is perfect for a hat brim or a pocket. The emitter is a bit more neutral white, but still a cooler color.
Certainly not as yellow as a zebra headlamp in neutral. It is a nice bright neutralish cool white. I suspect streamlight doesnt advertise the battery capability because they want to keep selling their Cr123 batteries.
That or what Im doing will kill the emitter quicker. Maybe both. Regardless, I have a bunch of these little lights as they have become my favorite. Stash them with Cr123s for emergencies, EDC/ use with a 14500 and carry a Cr123 as a back up.
Ive had luck with this but dont recommend it since you could fry your light. Hasn’t happened to me yet. But just to be safe.
I bought the HL-X. Mounted it on the right side of my 10. 5″ pistol at 90. Super bright. Programming is a great feature, I chose low/high. My issue is the mounting options. Unless you spend another $80 on a Cloud Defensive mount (which only works on a monolithic top rail) you are pretty much stuck with the included rubber mounts or the 3M tape, which isn’t really an option.
The rubber mounts have front to back play which kinda sucks for a $100 light. However, the tape switch has two small holes for screwing it to a wood or plastic handguard. My particular handguard only has 5 slot rails at the ends on top, but is M-Lok across the top.
So what I did was drill out the holes to 3/16″ so I could fit some M-Lok screws and T-nuts. This allowed me to M-Lok mount the pressure switch to the top of my handguard securely with a very low profile.
I was also able to route the wire so it’s protected and out of the way. So if you buy this light be aware you may have to get creative with your mounting solution unless you want to spend addition money.
The new ProTac 1L-AA provides 350 lumens on high when used with one CR123A lithium battery, and will run for 1. 5 hours. Using one AA alkaline or AA lithium battery, you get 150 lumens on high, and 1 hour 20 minutes with an alkaline battery, or 4.
25 with a AA lithium. The ProTac 1L-1AA has an IPX7 waterproof rating and also features TEN-TAP Programming, which allows users to choose from three user selectable programs: high/strobe/low; high only; or low/high.
This is the light that, of my dozens of tested flashlights, has made the top choice of every day carry. Even hiking and camping- youtube ” anything outdoors with steve ” – work, this flashlight is always with me.
Lightweight, bright, long battery life, this little light has it all and the bonus of accepting multiple battery types. The 2. 4v 14500, cr123, AA, AAA sizes, it take them all. I have used “dead” AA batteries in this thing for weeks, to the point where if you turn it off, it won’t turn on again.
Wait a couple minutes and it works for another hour. It just doesn’t stop! For a flashlight in the $50 price range, it is worth every penny. I have purchased 3, 1 was lost to a lucky finder, the other is still new in the packaging- for the next time I lose one.
One lucky viewer got my olight warrior mini that I left in the watch tower at the top of star peak lookout in montana!.
The Streamlight ProTac 1L-1AA is one of my favorite flashlights because it does so many things well. This small light fits well in the palm of my hand and is just long enough to protract slightly when gripped.
It sells for between about $40-$60 and generates a 350 lumen beam with 6,500 candelas. The dual fuel option was a huge factor in my decision to purchase this light. The front and read caps have a semi-aggressive pattern that would be effective if it was used as a striking weapon.
The grip areas of the light was knurled to make it easy to grip. * Construction: The 1L-1AA is machined from aircraft grade aluminum and has a fairly aggressive striking pattern on both the head and tail.
The threads are tight and very smooth and an O-ring provides additional water sealing. * Size: At 4. 5″ long and 0. 95″ diameter (head, 0. 85″ barrel) it is small enough to fit in my pants pocket but large enough to fit with width of my palm.
The diameter is just large enough for my fingers to wrap around the body of the light. * Batteries: A HUGE advantage of the 1L-1AA is it can use either a CR123 battery to produce 350 lumens or a AA to produce 150 lumens.
I use the CR123 but it is nice to know that I could use a AA as a backup. The lower battery contact is spring loaded to accommodate the largerAA battery directly. This feature distinguishes this light from all others that I have seen.
* Waterproof: IPX7 waterproof to 1 meter for 30 minutes. * Durability: Withstands 1-meter drop. * Price: $40-$60 which is a very fair price for a flashlight of this quality. * Features: High/strobe/low modes and Ten-Tap Programming to switch to High/Low or Low/High mode.
* Beam Pattern: 40″ x 7″ at 3′ * Power Fail: No low battery indicator and the flashlight will fail when the AA battery gets to 1. 18v, or the CR-123 battery gets to 2. 83v. If you want an everyday carry (EDC) flashlight then this is normally the one that I recommend.
It is a good size for most people, generates a bright beam, and uses duel fuel. If you have larger hands then consider the Streamlight 2L or one of the longer flashlights. —– Advantages —– This is my personal everyday carry (EDC) light.
I took months deciding which flashlight to purchase and this was my choice. I keep trying to find a better light and I keep coming back to this one. Some of the reasons I really like this flashlight: * 350 lumens on high and 40 lumens on low * Aluminum construction with tactical bezels on the front and back * Small size allows me to easily conceal it in my pants pocket * Large enough to fit all the way across my palm* Double sided clip * Dual battery so I can use an AA if necessary —– Disadvantages —– This is still my favorite flashlight but there are a few minor flaws in this product.
* No low battery indicator: This light will work fine until the batteries get low and then it will stop working with very little warning. If you needed to light in a tactical situation and the batteries were low you may have a completely non-working light.
* Others have reported that the clip will easily lose its shape and not grip the body of the light over time. I have not experienced these issues and have been carrying the flashlight daily for well over a year.
* The light does not tail-stand easily. While this is a disadvantage if you want to tail-stand the light it means that the button is easier to press use to less material on the back of the light. These are minor disadvantages and should NOT dissuade you from purchasing this light.
This is still my favorite everyday carry flashlight.
This light is way better than I expected for $100. The light is more than bright enough, with good spread for clearing rooms and enough focus to blind and disorient. Not nearly too bright that I’m going blind from the bounce, but it can definitely daze you if you hit a mirror.
Have someone strobe you with it in the dark–not fun. Streamlight says it’ll get 6 hours out of a pair of batteries but we’ll see. If it’s even an hour that’s plenty for me to trust it to work when I need it.
10 more batteries was like $12 so it doesn’t matter for me. The spread and brightness make for a pretty minimal shadow when I mount it next to the barrel, but I offset it above and the shadow totally disappears from view.
The pressure switch is the real winner here. It takes a good amount of pressure so I can wrap my thumb over for recoil without getting a light AD, but it activates easily with confidence anywhere along its length.
I see people using the included zip ties to mount the switch and I can’t imagine why–the rubber pic clips are tight enough that they’re hard to take off if you wanted to. The wire is a good length so it cleans up easy without a lot of extra that needs to be taped up like other switches.
The mount is a little bulky but it just barely misses my front sight so I’m happy with it. Everything could be smaller and lighter, but not at this price and not enough that it’s worth paying more. 100% good value.
Extremely powerful, incredibly versatile and compact enough for everyday carry, the ProTac HL Tactical Flashlight with White LED from Streamlight is an essential addition to tactical professionals, first responders and outdoor adventurers’ gear.
Featuring Streamlight’s innovative Ten-Tap® Programming technology, users can choose between three programming options for a customized lighting solution in any situation. Three variable output levels, with a peak brightness of 600 lumens and a range of 253 meters, offer the varied illumination needed to handle everything from search and rescue missions to reading a fuse box when the power goes out.
An optimized energy system regulates power output to deliver an impressive 18 hours of run time. The multi-function tail switch allows for one-handed activation and cycling through light modes. Built to withstand the most extreme conditions possible, the ProTac HL features a waterproof, impact-resistant aircraft-grade aluminum construction for maximum duty life.
I want to brag about Streamlight brand flashlights. I bought this a TLR-1s about 15 years ago and recently when i turned it on the light was super dim. So i replaced the batteries and still had the same issue.
I created a service order through Streamlights online customer service and mailed it to them for repair. Well i just recieved a brand new updated model TLR-1free of charge since they no longer made the model i sent to them.
They also sent extra Streamlight batteries and extra parts. I am blown away!!!!! This is 100% customer satisfaction and this model is twice as bright as my old one. I definitely recommend this company to any sportman or tactical gear head.
The only reason surefire can charge so much is because people are willing to pay insane prices for anything that gets a military contract due to the implied prestige and the feeling they get LARPing as their favorite DELTA operator.
Anyone familiar with military contracts knows that the highest bidder doesn’t get the contract. It’s often a mix of cheap and reasonably reliable and even then not always. Surefire is not the best light manufacturer.
They’re great lights to be sure but they’re overpriced by 300%. The streamlight is high quality and most LE or civilians won’t put this light in military use conditions. Though streamlights likely would survive the same use surefire does.
If you’re willing to pay the premium to pretend you’re Pat Mac then go with surefire. If you’re a reasonable and frugal civilian who still wants great weapon accessories then buy this light with confidence.
All hype and marketing from the other light manufacturers aside, this Streamlight HLX is the best long gun light there is at this price range and feature set. Period. Why. Pay. More? Light: The options and 10 tap programmable features are a win.
I prefer the low/high setting. This light is bright AF on high. The low setting is great for indoors and training. Tape Switch: Personally I really like the momentary tape and constant on button option.
That’s definitely a win. Picatinny light mount: The mount is just OK. Slot it where you need it, twist it down tight, forget about it. For a better mount option, go with the Arisaka brand picatinny Gear Sector Offset Scout Mount.
They also make M-Lok and KeyMod mounts as well, all for.

The Streamlight Survivor is an incredible flashlight that has provided me with more than substantial brightness in the dark. It can shine light on things that are very, very far away. I’ve had it for about three months now and the battery life has endured through heavy usage.
It’s durability is exceptionally great, it has withstood a few bangs and drops and still works perfectly. I highly recommend this light to anyone looking for a new 90 degree flashlight or a flashlight for your backpack.
Streamlight flashlights are the best made. I was a full-time firefighter for over 30 years and had a Streamlight on my coat and in my hand. Their lights cut through smoke better than others, and the distance the light is thrown is incredible.
Can check power lines almost a quarter-mile away with a good Streamlight. There’s a reason Streamlights are found on most fire trucks and departments.
When I first received this flashlight I was not really impressed with the output and thought that I had bought another underperforming light. I can say after using this light a few times this light has every thing I was looking for in a flashlight.
This light has a nice throw and can light up an impressive area. I like the ability to keep on the charge for power outages and general needs around the house. Bought a second light to keep in my truck replacing my standby truck flashlight that I have used for years.
No issues with battery or charger other than the incredibly long charge time. I found that by pushing up on the battery door you can relieve the pressure on the battery door latch and reduce the wear and effort opening the battery compartment.
Open-Box — The Stiletto’s slim design allows it to be drawn and activated from a pocket as fast as a knife. It is a rechargeable, high-output handheld flashlight – ideal for anyone’s everyday carry kit.

Reviews From Real Customers
The light functions well, throwing a well focused, even large beam in three different levels of brightness. It fits well in your pocket and seems to be made of durable materials. The clip is functional and retains the light securely where you clip it.
On the negative side, I have activated it accidentally while seated while it was in my pants pocket, not a big deal, but a waste of battery. The other thing is the toggle on the tail end requires a good amount of pressure to depress.
Although the package appears robust, I can’t speak to the long-term reliability of the product or whether the lens will become scratched over time since there is not much of a bezel to protect it.
It’s a surefire, not really a need to say much else. The main reason that I didn’t go for the pro model is because of battery life. I’d rather have working hours vs lumens. Guys, get the membership! Save some cash on your gear.
As advertised, the real deal (but this is sportsmanguide not amazon), fast shipping as always and a great price plus my membership discount. I have no regrets.
TL,DL: Great light, I’d buy it again This light has all the characteristics of Surefire production, its construction is literally flawless. Fit, finish both perfect. The controls are solid, well placed and intuitive.
The beam is outstanding, not a thrower, but a perfect, floody area light. It’s a bit large, compared to competitive EDC offerings, but the unique shape of the Stiletto makes for very easy carry. What I’d change? I’d add “press and hold” functionality.
Currently, if I’ve had the light operating on “low” for a bit, then want “medium” output, it requires me to click the light off, turn it back on to low, the click through to medium, 3 clicks of the switch, one of which puts me in the dark for an instant.
On competitors’ lights, from low, I merely press and hold to cycle through lighting levels. I would also appreciate a very low output option, so-called “firefly”, or “menu/map”setting. With a lower price point, this could become the general appeal product that Surefire could sell a million of.

Nothing too special here to note. The G20 has a unique inspection beam which is basically just a narrow perfectly circular even beam of light. It has no hot spot in the center. Although, for me, it is a bit too dim for my applications.
For me, the HP3r is a much better fit. The G20 is nearly identical to the HP4 interms of build, size, and operation. The only differences being the HP4 being much brighter and having a Bulls-Eye beam pattern with a hot spot instead of the inspection beam pattern on the G20.
Overall, it is a well built pen light that is rather affordable.
Purchased because my normal HP4 flashlight looked like it was a couple of weeks away and I need a flashlight daily. The G20 is an inspection light with a well-defined very crisp circular pattern that works well for closeup work.
Unfortunately, it doesn’t work well for MY needs. After comparing with the HP4 that I received one day later, I noticed that the G20 has a bluish color as opposed to the warm white light that I am used to.
I also found that the G20 is not as bright as the HP4, and that I needed the wide beam of my HP4. It would show contrast better if the G20 had the same color spectrum as the HP4 (I have to identify wire colors on a regular basis).
I love the bright blue case and Coast customer service is fantastic. I will be buying more lights from Coast, just not the G20, though it may work perfectly for your use. Coast is a great company and shipping even during the Christmas shopping season crunch was incredibly fast and you can’t beat their warranty process.
I don’t regret my purchase, and I now carry both flashlights daily.
Flashlight itself is high quality aluminum and has a nice feel to it. Perfectly sized, fits in a shirt pocket made for a pen. The beam is well defined. This little light wasn’t made to brighten a room, but in an engine bay, wheel wells, or working on the interior of a vehicle, it is outstanding.
There is an available rechargeable battery (not included womp womp) which leads me to it’s only drawback: The rechargeable battery must be removed in order to recharge it. Other Coast products that have an available rechargeable battery have the ability to recharge the battery *without* removing said battery.
It might seem like a small inconvenience, but it makes all the difference. It’s the line between it being “great” and “perfect”.
Fenix PD32 V2. 0 is a 1200 lumen compact torch which offers incredible beam distance in an every day carry package. With a Max beam range of 395 metres, PD32 V2. 0 punches well above its size. This Tactical Torch is ideal for rifle mounting, reducing size and weight without any reduction in reach.
The torch is operated by a single large tail switch which controls momentary / constant on functions plus 3 brightness levels and easy access Strobe Mode. A memory function activates the light at the last used brightness level for convenient operation.
Three power levels of 30, 350 and 1200 lumens offer a useful choice of beam distance / run time combinations. The powerful 1200 lumen High Mode is temperature regulated to protect the LED and circuitry, reducing output as the torch heats up.
Maximum power can be re set once the light cools. Fenix PD32 V2. 0 can be powered by an 18650 rechargeable battery (not included – recommended) or a pair of CR123 primary lithium batteries. With maximum beam distance in a compact package, Fenix PD32V2.
0 LED torch is ideal for Tactical Operations, hunting and Search and Rescue uses. It will also find a home with dog walkers who appreciate a lighter torch with great beam distance.
I just bought a couple of the Fenix PD32 V2. 0 Compact Flashlights. Looking for a good, solid small flash light and this fit the bill. These flashlights are used to get around manufacturing/warehouse in case of power outage and other various disturbances.
I am not using for search and rescue so they are more than bright enough to get you through the aforementioned places, a campsite or parking garage. I have decided to go 18650 batteries for convenience.
I am not a fan of flashlights you plug in, much easier to just change the battery out. Plug in to recharge ones seem to introduce a weak point, it is that little rubber piece, did I put it back on right or worse break it.
I think the magnetic attached ones at least address that weakness. Unfortunately I don’t want to have to hang around till it says charged, so I can place the flashlight back. Think either way still just switching the battery takes a sec and letting them charge on a good charger like Fenix ARE-A4 I can do four batteries at once and go change them out.
I like that the UI remembers last mode used. I didn’t notice it in description so it was a plus find it. The three light modes are more than enough. I am a firm believer in the military’s belief in K.
I. S. S. The S. O. S. feature is present also. The UI is straight forward, easy to navigate and use. The “click” for the tail cap switch is a deep throw, but does give room for a more generous momentary on without possibly accidently gong to full on.
The tail cap does allow it to stand. A third leg would have made it less tipsy, but would have also made using the tail cap switch a bit harder to use. I believe it was a good trade to use just the two legs.
Rounding things out we have a crenulated bezel that will show just enough light out to let you know you left it on. I am not sure why Fenix omitted this in their description, though it is visible in images, as it is an excellent feature.
The Fenix PD32 V2. 0 has an IPX68 waterproof rating. They do have a “Hunter’s bundle” available. Unfortunately it should have their 2900mAh cold resistant battery instead of the cheapest one they have.
Someone needs to inform them that a lot of hunting is done in cold weather. I almost went for it but for the 2600mAh over the preferred 3500mAh just irked me, at least the weaker cold resistant one would have made sense.
While we’re talking batteries I was a little disappointed I couldn’t get a 3500mAh LRB-18-3500 battery with my first order, with 20% off first order code, as they had none. They now have all the batteries in stock and sent me another 20% code which I took them up on.
So showing a promising customer service department. The package does include a holster. I wish it was MOLLE type so I could mount one on my backpack, though it is quite nice if you wear belt. They also include a body clip which works well and is very handy for someone like me who hangs out in gym shorts not wearing a belt.
They also have in the box a lanyard and an extra O ring. Bottom line is I will probably get a couple more.
I was hoping this flashlight would be a great “low cost” alternative to other high lumen/high candela edc type lights. (Modlite PLHv2, Cloud MCH). The UI is really simple and I like the functionality of the 3 modes.
But the button is WAY too mushy. It is very hard to tell if you have actually pressed the button all the way or not and I am constantly switching between modes when I do not intend to. If the tail-cap switch was similar to the other PD lights this would have been a home run.
But it is pretty bad so this light is only SO-SO and the fact it doesn’t come with an 18650 starts to make it not so great of a deal. I would not buy another one.
This is an awesome flashlight! I have this strapped to my hydration pack shoulder strap for when I ride my bike or walk at night. It’s perfect to give you just enough light when needed to see your way, be visible to traffic, or as a task light.
I love that it has a red-light mode to not ruin your night vision and it charges fast! This is my second LD15R, I had lost my first one and missed it so much I had to get another! This flashlight has become an indispensable part of my outdoor gear.
Cordless Flashlight, Voltage 12. 0 V, Battery Included / Bare Tool Bare Tool, Lamp Type LED, 100 lm Lumens, Focus Fixed, Light Output Mode High, Series CXT, Use With Battery Mfr. No. BL1021B, BL1041B, Water Penetration Rating Not Rated, Number of Batteries 1, Beam Distance 3 ft, Lamp Life 20,000 hr, Replacement Lamps No, Switch Type Push Button, Special Features Compact Size, Tool Length 3 in, Tool Weight 0.
What a great product for the small 12 volt CXT battery by Makita. I took all pictures in my home. I noticed that in complete darkness in interior spaces it gives great lighting as the light can bounce around an illuminate more.
Where as in outdoors some of the light is lost because it has nothing to bounce back from as is with all lights, so it is spread out more and obviously less illumination. But still, out doors in complete darkness it is a lot better than a cell phone light.
My guess is this can be around the house useful in an emergency or any typical use if need be. But I have a feeling that it can also be in your toolbag for the average tradesman. Although from my experience most professional tradesman are using the bigger 18v LXT batteries for their tools so I doubt this will be a choice for them.
I bought this because I am a painter and sometimes need a light to look for small imperfections on wall surfaces. And this light does the trick exceptionally. It so happens that I have two batteries from a makita drill set that I do use on occasion for the lighter type drill work around home and job site.
My only drill set to be exact. So what better way than to get more use out of my batteries. The build feels great and quality is exactly the same is material used on drills. Hard plastic with the soft feeling black rubber for grip.
The only button, the power button feels snug with a firm press it turn on and off. There is also a small cut out so you can loop a lanyard or something you can tie on for hanging or storing away. Only thing can’t quite comment on is battery life.
I only have the smallest 1. 5ah battery but according to instructions it’s plenty of life for me. Plus I have two batteries so not worried about that at all. Definitely not a replacement for a wired work light or battery powered light like the ones using bigger batteries.
It’s a great light for tradesman who wants something lighter than bigger battery lights out there to carry in their belt. But as mentioned earlier I doubt that the average tradesman will be carrying the 12v batteries.
But if you happen to be a professional with some of these batteries around and don’t need 1000 lumen of light this is something to consider.
As a compact light, I prefer this, the Makita ML-103, to the two-level (Hi/Lo) third-party copy. The Makita’s beam is warmer (less blue) and the interface is simpler. I keep my ML-1-3 by my bed. When my alarm rings, it’s 5:50 am—pitch-dark outside.
So I reach over, grab my ML-103, prop it on my stomach, turn it on, and aim it at my face for 10 minutes to help me wake up! I still recommend getting the third-party version that doubles as a CXT battery charger, especially if you buy a 12VDC cord to turn it in a vehicle charger.
Many of my Lithium Ion lights are too bright. I don’t always need that kind of power. This light fits the bill especially when working inside electrical enclosures (industrial electrician). Also, this light is tough.
Fenix PD40R v2 is a super bright 3000 lumen flashlight that reaches 442 yards of throw. The 2nd version includes a high capacity 5000mAh 21700 battery and an adapter sleeve to use with 18650. With an impressive runtime of up to 88 hours on 30 lumen, it is ready to go the extra mile with you whenever you need it.
Via its fast charge USB-C port, you can fully charge the light in only 3. 5 hours. The PD40R v2 offers precise control with its mechanical rotary switch without worrying magnetic field interference. The rotary switch smoothly transitions among four brightness levels and the strobe mode.
Compact and lightweight, it fits right in the palm of your hand while still easy to carry around. Combining its tail stand capability with its robust construction and premium quality, PD40R V2 is an ideal duty light for professionals like law enforcement, inspection, and security.
It also makes a great companion for outdoor excursions such as camping and hiking. Take it with you everywhere!.
Fenix please fix this light’s design flaws in v. 3! □ TL;DR: 1. Shoddy firmware and design oversights frequently prevents charging and locks out turbo mode. 2. Lack of a positive terminal spring cause the battery not to charge properly and the flashlight to “reboot” if bumped when on.
■ Long: I really want to love this light; I infact have bought two of them, one as a gift for my dad. The trouble is I cannot give it more than 2 stars: one for the decent material quality and one for the decent high mode longevity.
When I first recieved the light the turbo mode was fantastic!. for exactly one charge. The trouble is the flashlight does not recharge the battery to the proper voltage, and takes the reading of the voltage at the lowest registered point, on or off, not the floating voltage; ie.
the controller won’t allow you to use turbo if the voltage dropps below 4. 17v at any time, and you need to disconnect the battery for a second for it to re-register the real float voltage instead of the voltage under load.
It is clearly a firmware fk-up because the turbo works fine if charged externally and the turned directly on to turbo mode, but if you take it out of turbo mode or use any other modes first for even a few seconds, it will lock you out of turbo even on a brand new battery.
The flashlights internal charger will only peak charge to around 4. 17-4. 18 so most of the time if you try to use turbo mode, even fresh off the charger, it will not work. Secondly, the internal charger is the most fragile charging state I have ever seen.
The charger monitors the battery and if it disconnects for even a millisecond is won’t charge untill the battery is removed and the charger is unplugged for 2 seconds. The reason why this is a lethal design flaw is the positive terminal does not have a contact spring, so the absolute gentlest tap or bump causes the charger to not detect the battery and cease charging.
Setting the flashlight down on the counter *gently!* after plugging it in is enough to stop it from charging. This is not a one off problem; this issue is quite common on this model. This issue is extremely frustrating to the point I don’t even bother with the USB charging, I remove the battery and use a 3rd party [****] charge the cell to 4.
20v. The issue of not having a spring on the cathode terminal also has a detrimental effect of whenever the flashlight is jarred slightly in use the flashlight “reboots” for about half a second before turning back on.
Presumably the circuit is reading the position of the rotary encoder switch and checking the voltage because for all it knows you just inserted another battery. ◇ Two more wishes that aren’t really “problems” but features it should have had: it needs a Low/moonlight mode.
It’s “low” setting is many flashlights high. While it is nice that it is that bright, it’s WAY too bright to read by. You absolutely have to reflect it off something or put your thumb over the lense to not blind yourself.
Secondly; a tailcap switch is a dearly missed feature. I love the twist ring, it’s very handy to select the brightness, but I have been tempted to modify it to incorporate a switch in the tail. Overall I wish I could pop it open and modify the firmware because I think 90% of the fatal flaws could be righted with a few lines of fixed code.
So sad. It has been frusterating enough to nearly make a grown azz man cry. I love the light, but it has too many critically bad design components that after a year of using it I would not buy it again.
I love the light, no complaints at all with the light. The cheap nylon holster is why I knocked off a star, I probably should have knocked off 2 stars. It’s shamefully cheap and Fenix would do better to not even offer a pouch instead of this thing.
The pouch started to fall apart after less than a week of use. I found a different holster that held the light, but the cheap velcro flap didn’t secure it very well. The light fell out of the other holster at work the other day and is now lost will little hope of anyone returning it to me.
There’s a good chance I’ll buy another PD40R in the next few days as a replacement, but I’ll find a better holster first. My favorite feature was the twist switch. I’m not a fan of tail switches as they always seem to get pressed inadvertently while the light is in my pocket.
My second favorite feature is the USB-C charging port built into the light, no need to remove the battery. Now Fenix just needs to make a better quality pouch. I have an older Eagletac flashlight that came with a very nice form-fitted pouch.
It would be nice to see Fenix step up their game and include something like that.
The PD40R V2. 0 is a very serious flashlight. At it’s lowest setting, it functions much like a typical high quality flashlight. As you click up through the settings, you will find that on turbo, it fills a typical room with white light and if necessary, immediately blinds even without the strobe function.
The battery on turbo does get hot, but unless you are working with it for an extended period, not dangerously so. The main problem with the flashlight, and it is a serious one, is that the battery case twist is directly below and in the same direction as the brightness selector.
More often than not, rather than turning on and selecting the brightness of your flashlight, you will end up loosening the case and disconnecting the battery. This is not a concern for me because I am using this casually, but if you expect this to function quickly in a critical situation, it is not the flashlight for you.
Fitted with the Cree XP-L HI V3 LED, this light delivers a maximum 1000 lumens at a distance of 873 feet (266 meters). Turn the light on and off with the tactical tail switch and cycle through the six lighting modes via the newly designed metal side switchwhich also has a built-in battery level indicator.
You can achieve an incredible 800 hours of runtime when using the new moonlight brightness level. Compact and built-tough, the UC35 V2. 0 flashlight is IP68 rated; dust proof and waterproof underwater to two meters.

I bought this light a little more than a year ago and keep it at my desk or in my backpack almost all the time. I like the range of brightness options, and because I use mostly the low settings (taking out the trash at night, making a midnight bathroom run, looking for stuff in a dark closet), I’ve only had to charge it once or twice.
It has a good feel in hand and in general is a pleasure to use. While I sort of worry the built-in charging port could be a point of failure, so far it’s worked just fine. A few small gripes: First, it’s been frustrating that the rubber switch protrudes such that you can’t set the flashlight on its end.
In a pinch like a power outage, I sometimes just shine a flashlight at the ceiling, but I can’t easily do that with this light. I also wish the clip were double-sided so you could attach it to the bill of a cap, etc.
, although it might be on the heavy side for that. The LED is also a particularly cool-colored light — which is plenty functional but seems pretty harsh to my eyes compared to some others on the market.
I have been carrying the PD22 for the last 8 years. I needed a new switch for it but they are not available so I upgraded to the PD25. I am an AWS welding inspector and carry this light more than my car keys.
It is small comfortable in my pocket even for the pants I don’t fit in anymore. The light is bright versatile as the adjustable brightness allows to see profiles of welds handily. In addition, as an avid 1911 fan the PD25 is more than capable of lighting up gods little creatures (night targets).
At this lights reasonable price I can afford to buy one for all of my friends. As an inspector I don’t have friends so I’m buying me a another one. Really, this light is bright, small, and capable. I bought two rechargeable batteries beats buying a 30 pack of batteries.
There are a lot of things I love about this, but there is one thing that is a great inconvenience to me but might not bother others. The size and weight are great. The build quality is great as always with Fenix.
It’s bright and it also has a great moonlight setting for low light level. The battery lasts long. My only major problem is that I can’t find the side button with my finger. You turn this light on with an endcap, and then you adjust brightness with a side switch that is flat and not distinguishable by touch.
The side switch does light up for a few seconds after first turning on the light, but then it’s gone and you can’t tell where the button is. This is a dealbreaker for me and I need to find a way to make it stick out so I can identify it with my finger in the dark.
Fenix released the E18R v2. 0, an ultra compact and high performance rechargeable flashlight designed for everyday carry enthusiasts. It is equipped with a Luminus SST-40 LED that delivers a 1200 lumen beam with distances up to 159 yards.
With five brightness levels plus Strobe, the E18R v2. 0 is suited for everyday carry, hiking, camping, emergencies and everything in between. At 2. 64 inches long and weighing only 2 ounces, excluding the battery, easily carry this flashlight on your keychain or using the removable pocket clip.
Upgraded to fast and reliable USB-C charging the E18R v2. 0 is better than ever. Powered by a new Fenix ARB-L16-700P battery, the E18R v2. 0 can achieve up to 200 hours of runtime on low. To prevent accidental activation and save battery power while traveling, the E18R v2.
0 offers 2 ways to lockout and secure the light. Double tap the side switch to LOCK/UNLOCK or physically lockout the light by twisting the pocket clip over the side switch. Constructed from aero-grade aluminum and rated IP68 for waterproof and dust protection, the E18R v2.
First, about the seller: Fenix-Store is, without question, the best seller of Fenix lights. Their service has always been exceptional. The E18 has been very disappointing to me. The advertised turbo level of 1200 lumen is a joke.
That 1200 lumen level lasts less than 5 minutes before the light starts to rapidly ramp down. Within less than 8 minutes its down to about 700 lumen (There is a line graph that demonstrates how fast the E18 ramps down in the manual but I didn’t see that graph until the E18 arrived.
You’ll notice that Fenix doesn’t include that line graph in their promotional brochure). The light has turned on in my pocket 3 times in 3 weeks in spite of being “locked”. The 2-way clip is great and I guess I could use the clip to cover the button so the E18 doesn’t turn on in my pocket but that is a nuisance.
I like the battery status light. I’ll keep the E18 but the fact that it only delivers 1200 lumen for such a short time coupled with the problem of turning on in my pocket will keep me from using E18 as my EDC.
I’ll go back to carrying my old reliable E15. Someday Fenix will fix the “Lock” problem. Don’t be fooled by the “1200 lumen for 30 minutes” misrepresentation as I was. It’s nothing close to 30 minutes.
I believe that Fenix-Store should include the line graph from the E18 manual in their promotional data for the E18 so people can make an informed decision about the capabilities of that light. I will do more research before I purchase another Fenix light.
Again, let me say that Fenix-Store is a great seller. They allowed me to modify my review of the E18 and their return poilicy would have allowed me to return the light had that been my desire.
Overall I feel this light is a useful EDC light with several very useful features & lacking a couple features I would like to see. I like the battery level indicator led in the main control switch. Magnetic tail cap is great.
1200 lumen Turbo mode is a great option when needed as is the 1200 lumen strobe mode. The control switch lockout option assures the light isn’t activated unintentionally while in my pocket. However, I find it more convenient to just loosen/back off the battery cap ~1/8 turn.
Now for my wish list to make this an even better EDC light. The memory mode of this light turns the light on to the power level the light was last used prior to being turned off. However if the light is shut down in Turbo mode (1200 lumen) the light will come on in high mode (350 lumen).
Not good! That’s over 3x less than full power! Not effective for emergencies or possible tactical uses. Light then requires another bump of the switch to jump to Turbo mode. I like the easy direct access to the strobe mode (hold down the switch) but wish turbo mode was just as accessible.
Also, the 5 power levels could be better. 1 lumen, 30, 150, 350 & 1200 are the 5 lumen levels. I love the moonlight low mode, but I feel the gap between 350 high & 1200 Turbo is too much. I can’t find any specs on this light using CR123 primary lithium batteries, not sure why, but this info should be easily obtainable but I can’t find it.
I’m so happy with my purchase of the E18R V2. 0. I bought this to replace a PD36R that I’ve been everyday carrying in my cargo shorts pocket for a couple of years. What I found with the length of the PD36R, the crown (?) of the flashlight rubbed against almost the bottom edge of my cargo pocket, causing a hole to be created.
Not anybody’s fault (but hey, Fenix, do you guys make rubber cap to maybe mitigate against rub damage like this? Just a thought), but if I wanted to save all my other cargo shorts (so far 3 of them have this little “Fenix kiss”), from a similar issue, I needed an alternative and I thought that I would try the E18R.
Rechargeable? Great! A bit smaller? Great! Almost as bright? Close, but still great! Magnet in the tail? Wow, how awesome is that! I bought two: one for my pocket (let’s see how the cargo shorts handle this form factor, but so far so good), and one for my garage stuck to something metal.
I haven’t found the ultimate spot for it yet, but right now it’s stuck to a stand next to where I smoke cigars in the evening. If the lights ever go out when I’m in the garage or I ever need to go investigate something in the dark back or front yard, I know exactly where it is! So far, I’m really happy with these “little” lights.
I may have to start handing these out as gifts to family members, they’re so easy to stow in a pocket or a purse.
Specially designed to meet the needs of law enforcement professionals, the SureFire G2X LE is a higher-output version of our best-selling G2X Pro that leads with high output on its first press or click.
It features a high-performance LED that generates a max output of 400 lumens of blinding white light focused by a parabolic reflector into a versatile beam with significant reach and ample surround light for maintaining good situational awareness, crucial in law enforcement.
At its lower output the G2X LE produces a useful 15-lumen beam that provides extended runtime on a set of batteries, for tasks that don’t require as much light. – A click-style tactical tailcap switch controls the light’s output—simply press or click to unleash all 400 lumens in momentary- or constant-on mode, an important feature for law enforcement applications where instant access to maximum output provides a tactical advantage.
Return to off and press or click again within two seconds for G2X LE’s lower-output 15-lumen beam. – Featuring a lightweight, durable Nitrolon polymer body designed for a secure hold, a Mil-Spec hard-anodized aluminum head, and O-rings and gasket seals to keep out moisture and dust, the G2X LE is as rugged as it is functional.
It makes an ideal duty light for anyone who wears a badge—or a perfect everyday-carry light for anyone who demands a professional-grade flashlight that’ll take on just about any situation.
The lightest & probably also the most durable in its class. I have the tactical as well as this Pro now. I run this with the thyrm 2. 0 switchback ring. Love the low & high future. For a daily carry flashlight or Duty flashlight you cant go wrong with this.
On low its great to look for keys or use while the rest of the house is sleeping. Use to find stairs etc. on high you get great light control. If trained with & used with your non dominant hand, On high its produces plenty of candela(we all know how many lumens this has) to create that hotspot necessary to disorient an assailant to buy you enough time to switch to your weapon with light if necessary.
I bought this light to replace an old incandescent SureFire G2 that I had mounted to a carbine. This light fit the same mount perfectly, and while you aren’t going to light up a whole football field at night like some of the 1K+ lumen lights, this is the perfect brightness for indoor and close quarters use, especially with the high and low modes.
The momentary/click switch is solid and easy to use, and I like that I can still use my old light’s momentary-only switch as well.
I own both the Surefire G2X Pro 320 and 600 lumen versions. Yes they are both bright and I won’t disagree on that. But the difference in brightness is not as significant as I expected. The 600 does not seem close to being 2x brighter that the numbers indicate.
I would rather opt for the lower-priced 320 lumen version again if I need to get another one in the future. Since they’ve been phasing out, you can almost get 2x 320 lumen versions for the price of a single 600 lumen version.
Whichever you get, I still think all Surefire flash lights are great products, even better that they are MADE IN USA, and I will continue to buy this model and all it’s upgrades as time goes by.
The Stiletto Pro is a pint-sized powerhouse that takes the Stiletto’s already legendary performance and durability to the next level. SureFire’s proprietary MaxVision Beam reflector delivers 1,000 lumens of smooth, shadow-filling LED white light in high-output mode, with a 300-lumen medium output and a 25-lumen low output to suit a variety of tasks.
It can be programmed to set the output sequence from low to high or vice versa, and you can always access high output and strobe capability via its tail switch. Its Melonite-coated, reversible heavy-duty spring steel pocket clip keeps the light secure whether you prefer bezel-up or bezel-down storage.
Its precision-machined, Mil-Spec hard-anodized aluminum body is sleek and slim for tremendous durability. The Stiletto Pro fits comfortably in any pocket, and it can be drawn and activated with ease.

As a property inspector, I have used this flashlight daily since it was introduce. I have to say it’s the best by far. Three light intensities and very bright on high, it is indispensable. Had a seller “misplace” my light a few weeks ago and ordered another that afternoon.
This LED flashlight is a very durable feeling flashlight very comfortable in the hand. And very bright! Ordered her Christmas came without any delay as promised. The most important thing product is as expected.
Ive carried a streamlignt for years. I switched to this because it lays flatter in my pocket and the clip is a much better design to fit over pockets with a thicker ridge. It has multiple brightness levels and is rechargeable.
A compact light with the output power of a full-sized torch, the Streamlight ProTac 1L-1AA LED Flashlight is an easy-to-carry tool suited to a wide range of professional, recreation and personal use.
It comes with a CR123A battery, which provides a peak brightness level of 350 lumens, and an alkaline AA cell, which powers up to 150 lumens. The 40-lumen low-power setting saves energy but still emits enough light for many tasks, and there’s also a strobe for disorienting an adversary or emergency signaling.

I purchased this because I thot I had lost my other Streamlight, found i,t but I always like having a spare and THIS is the go to flashlite! I don’t know how many times Ive dropped my 1st one but it always makes it thru the ordeal! Now I can have one always in the car and one at home, the BEST BY FAR of any small handheld flash Ive ever owned.
Would really recommend this to all and any who would like the best light around. My ONLY gripe is that it doesnt focus but it’s so bright it doesnt really need it anyway. I can see to the top and to the bottom of my neighborhood and see things bright! I walk my neighborhood early morning hours and to have this light is perfect not just to see critters but possibly unfriendly faces! These WILL blind a foe so you can srtike while they are stunned.
At 70 I need every advantage there is! Get one and you will be happy. durable, lasting now 3 years so figure why not get another! My 1st is 700 lumens, this is 1,000 so Ive VERY anxious to see the difference!.
This is a tool that lives in my pocket and gets used every day. I am the mechanic for a fleet, and I inspect / repair several vehicles each day. This may be one of my most used tools, and it gets serious abuse.
Only someone in my line of work would understand, but anything that lasts over 3 years is incredible. This light is just that. I dont know how it is still kicking.
I had bought the stream light protac hpl usb flash light to replace my stream light strion wich I loved and lost it. I like the protac hpl but nothing replaces my strion. I want brighter but hpl is to bright for a neighborhood walk.
low doesn’t seem to be Brite at all. I didn’t think 2 inches in size would matter for me I guess it does the flat spots on the head does not stop it from rolling. to turn it to different settings you push button on the end a certain amount of times and pressure to change settings wich gets confusing.
the end with that button is sharp and it starts to hurt your finger from pushing the button over all I love stream light just wish I could return it for the strion.

I ordered these in February and they didn’t work. I notified the appropriate source but never got a response. I have been unable to use them — I couldn’t even get them to turn on. I got sick with Covid-19 for a month and wasn’t able to continue following up.
I’m on a limited budget and can’t afford to waste $38. Tell me what my options are. I’d like to return them.
I purchased this flashlight for my husband. I have a small one I like to keep on my nightstand, but when I need it it’s never there. When we received it my husband checked all of the features it has and was really impressed with all it does.
This would make a great gift for for anyone. My daughter has been doing a few things around her apartment and this would be nice for her to have in her tool box. I will be telling my friends about this.
I have this flashlight and several others. My job takes me into places with a complete absence of light and this one is the best balance of brightness and size. I have brighter lights but they are harder to carry and take three or six of the 18650 batteries.
The long battery life is a nice bonus on this light. I get more life out of one battery than I got from my previous light that had three. The previous light was brighter but it was cumbersome. I recommend getting a high quality 18650 battery and charger if you’re going to use it a lot.
Very few people will need a brighter light than this one. I carry this light on the job every day.
Well, amazing to me anyways, because it’s THE one and only flashlight i have owned that met my expectations w/o spending a fortune. First, single mode. i have been looking for that for years and this is the first true single mode i have found.
Quality. i can’t truly speak to this till i have had it a long time. There are reviews that say the switch broke, but only a tiny fraction and if you look at ANY flashlight or any product for that matter, not one is w/o a small percentage of those reviews.
But it;’s probably the most solidly built light i have =owned to date. No doubt there are as good for $40 and up but this was 1/2 that. The 1/2 press for momentary on is a big plus. Beam is adjustable and unlike others i’ve had with that, there is NO ply/slop in the head when u move it and it has a friction that feels very quality and keeps it from accidentally getting moved.
I cannot speak for battery life just yet but it is nice and bright and i will use rechargeables once the alkaline is dead. All in all, to say i am satisfied is a vast understatement. If you want a single mode small light thats very bright and built like a tank, this is it.
And if you want single mode it’s probably the only game in town unless you go cheaper and but one of the dozens of junk lights i have owned over the years. I believe this will prove to be the best i have owned by far.
Bought this flashlight at a big box hardware store. I was looking for something else when I was leaving I passed the display I saw other flashlights probably the ones the customers were going to buy.
At the price I couldn’t see more in there but next yo the display there was one sitting right there I didn’t ask if someone put it there to buy I grab it and got in line! I probably buy any where from 5 -8 flashlights a year.
I got a coast HP 7 a few years back worked good until it would only work when it wanted, I didn’t want to destroy the thing so I went online to see how to take it apart couldn’t find anything then I came across Coast website only to find out it had a lifetime warranty but i received it as a gift.
I emailed them this was on a Monday within a couple of hours they responded saying that wasn’t a problem just take a picture and say what’s wrong with it. I did that Wednesday I received an email saying my replacement was on the way! Friday afternoon I had it in my hand, that’s customers service! With that in mind and that price I bought it, this was a few months ago since then I only bought one more light it’s a Coast headlamp I’m sold on this product and the customer service, my next light will be a work light and it will be a Coast!.
The conclusion of flesh light for men is that it is an amazing product that provides incredible pleasure. It is also very easy to use and clean, which makes it even more enjoyable. Overall, the flesh light is an incredible product that any man should try at least once.
