I did not attempt to measure "beam distance". This would require defining, and measuring a number of test parameters that I am not equipped to perform. I can only say that this light will project a beam that will match or better most similar flash lights.

May 22, 2014
Answer: 
The beam distance varies, but it is measured by how far the light can reach under clear conditions in a level straight line. On high it reaches about 741 feet, on the low setting only about 246 feet. Also the difference between the 2 measurements is the focus of the lens... If focused to the finest point it will give the maximum light output over the greatest distance and vice versa. 226 meters (741 ft) Read More

Answer: 
The distance is calculated using a standard test (ANSI/FL1). The distance is that at which the illumination falls to 0.25 lux. The only real use of this number is to compare different flashlights that have been tested to the same standard. Unfortunately there are other tests.
When I first tried the HP7 on a dark night, I was amazed by how bright it was.

Answer: 
there are currently two versions of this light. One is black it is the "tactical" version because it has a strobe feature. It is rated at 251 lumens. The non tactical version usually sold as the HP7 Pro is 360 lumens but does not have a strobe feature.

Answer: 
To measure the light output from any light source requires lab equipment, and a controlled set of measurement conditions. It also requires that a defined test and measurement procedure be followed. Also, a number of sample lights would be required for testing, so as to average their results.
That being said, I have no way to know nor measure the light output of this device.

Answer: 
Coast claims their value is calculated using ANSI/FL1 standards. There are many ways of calculating brightness, so that may explain the discrepancy.
Since the human eye responds logarithmically, the difference between 251 and 360 does not amount to as much as it seems. In any event this flashlight is amazingly bright!

Home Depot's website lists it at high - 1 hour 45 minutes; low - 19 hours 30 minutes.
Coast's website lists it simply as a 5 hour 45 minute runtime. Is this assuming a hybrid operation profile between the two modes?

Excellent question! The listed specs on the packaging says 1 hour 45 minutes on max output and 19 hours on low off of standard alkaline AAA cells. ANSI testing standards work like this, starting from 30 seconds after turn on in max output what the 1 hour 45 minute rating actually means is that it takes that long to go from max output to 10 percent of max output. The low setting works the same way but is Read More
Excellent question! The listed specs on the packaging says 1 hour 45 minutes on max output and 19 hours on low off of standard alkaline AAA cells. ANSI testing standards work like this, starting from 30 seconds after turn on in max output what the 1 hour 45 minute rating actually means is that it takes that long to go from max output to 10 percent of max output. The low setting works the same way but is actually able to hold the lower output for many hours before it drops below 10 percent of its low output. Been looking at the Coast site and unless I am totally missing something I saw nothing about 5 hour 45 minute run time.
Best batteries for this light are Energizer Ultimate Lithium AAA's. They crank full voltage until they flat out die. Read Less

Answer: 
The actual run-time depends upon the specific brand of batteries used as well their age and the temperature at which they are used and stored. The standard test for flashlights rates their life as the time it takes to fall to 10% of the initial brightness. You would probably choose to change batteries well before this.

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 67 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great light had long time I've had this light about 6 months. Great performance across the board. It's a little on the large side, and heavy, but it's robust. Run time in medium and low is incredible. However don't leave it in high, it burns out alkaline AAAs quickly, and then the battery life remaining dwindles, and you'll need new alkys. But rechargeable batteries work good, and still, high mode is only good for 10-20 minutes before a violent drop off. But the beam pattern is perfect. Drop worthy, but with such a great lanyard hole I never drop it. A holster is useful though, get one. Low mode is definitely useful for up-close tasks, as is the wide flood when focused in. Wetness won't bother it. Only complaint is you will need 850+mah rechargeable batteries for decent run times and the high-mode is a bit of a farce, for anything other than quick checks. Comfortable in the hand, I added a little grip tape cause it's slippery, and you'll need a lanyard. July 18, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice little flashlight I have to admit that this flashlight pleasantry surprised me, it is very bright and small, so you can take it with you wherever you go. June 21, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by poor quality on/off switch doesn't work properly light goes off by itself. there are hundreds of better options for this price. May 4, 2016

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Super bright I use this flashlight at night to briefly walk my dog along unlit roads in our neighborhood. It provides very nice ambient light and, when focused, lights up distant objects very clearly. Very bright. Easy push button operation. Much better than a mini Maglight. February 23, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Power to Weight Ratio This is a smart little light with a lot of power. Flood light is perfectly soft, spot focus is solid. Three levels of brightness gives it a whole other level of versatility. Can you buy more "lumens" for $25? Sure, but most of them are quite big and don't offer the same options. I think the only way you're going to get more out of something this size is if you go up-market into the 123A battery makes/models (think Surefire, fenix, Olight, Streamlight, etc.). But then you're in getting into a whole other cost bracket. December 30, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Powerful This little flashlight is simply a powerhouse. It far outshines many lights costing much more including a well-known brand from Ontario, CA. It's small enough to fit into a pocket or pack for traveling. As an urban explorer, I need a light that is small, powerful and light-weight. Its ability to focus with a pinpoint or wide beam is a plus. I like this light so much I intend to purchase another to add to the 3 I already have. By the way, this model was an impels-buy and I'm glad it worked out so well! December 29, 2015
