Finally a rechargeable light that's worth having
This flashlight is great. It's sturdy, (tactical grade aluminum housing, impact and water resistant), bright (1000 ft distance), light weight (won't weigh you down, but substantial feeling when you carry it), and most importantly very functional, in that COAST made it very easy to keep this charged.
COAST makes great flashlights and this is one of them. It comes with two rechargeable batteries and a sheath that you can use to load alkaline batteries in for back-up. The light also comes with a

sheath, car adapter, and car mount.
What I like about this is that you don't have to rely on a specialized wall wart to charge it. It recharges through USB, so I can use my phone charger to charge this, and I can charge the extra battery when it's out of the flashlight.
Other than these features there's not much to say. It's a great light that will take a beating and is bright enough for most indoor uses, camping, fishing, hunting, and around the farm.
If you're looking for a rechargeable flashlight that you will use regularly, you should give this one great consideration.
Best Flashlight I've Ever Seen
This flashlight is every bit as powerful as my big one that runs on D batteries, but fits in my pocket and weighs nearly nothing. It works great up close with the beam adjusted to a flood, providing a nice even wash. From a distance, the beam focuses so narrow that it almost looks like a laser. Moving between the two extremes is smooth and easy to adjust by sliding the ring around the bulb in and out.
The flashlight comes with two battery packs, plus an adapter to allow use of batteries (which

are included). I have used the flashlight for hours, and have not managed to drain the first battery pack yet, so two fully charged batteries provides a seemingly infinite amount of use.
Also of note is that the light does not seem any dimmer in cold temperatures, and the flashlight is still easy to grip when cold and wet. I haven't found much use for the strobe mode yet, but it is really fun to get my dogs wound up for some excercise!
If you can get past the initial price tag, this really is a great value and an incredible tool that is worth every penny!
