Rated 5 out of 5Â by alti Compact and Powerfull
The HP7R Rechargeable Focusing Flashlight is compact and very powerful. This Flashlight is my new go to item. I take it with me in the car when I travel, I use it in my travel trailer and at night it is next to my bed on the night stand. The light is powerful enough to take a dark room to light in seconds. The light has the power to shine up to 1,003 feet. The packing that came with this light is as strong as the light itself. The box comes with three battery packs, two are rechargeable and the other comes with Alkaline batteries. The Flashlight can be charged using AC,DC or USB power. Very convenient to use any where at any time. With a smooth focus pattern it adjust quickly. I would recommend this Flashlight to anyone looking for an all in one easy to handle Flashlight.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by dcmikez 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.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Texas Top notch flashlight
For such a compact flashlight, this has a fantastic lumen level and range.
The manufacturer claims 1,003 feet, and I can verify that claim. Our driveway runs over 1,000 feet from the ranch to the road, and the flashlight illuminated the unlit street just fine at night.
The LED bulb ensures you are not going to have a bulb failure if you drop the flashlight.
The flashlight comes with three battery packs, yes thats right, three! Two are rechargeable, and one takes 4 AAA batteries (which are included). There is no excuse to ever be with a source of light.
Focusing the light is as simple as sliding the head backwards and forwards, and changing between high output (201 lumens), low output (22 lumens) and a SOS strobe effect is all done with the single, rear mounted, power switch.
You can charge the rechargeable battery packs outside the flashlight with the supplied mini USB charger, or inside the flashlight with what the manufacturer calls their 'Pro-Tek' charging port. No fiddly rubber gaskets to close over the charging port on the flashlight, the base of the torch slides backwards to reveal the port and snuggly closes when not in use to ensure water resistance.
The light comes with a car mount, speed clip, and heavy-duty sheath.
You can adjust the beam from a focused narrow spot beam to a wide flood beam, and anywhere in-between. See my uploaded videa for some idea on beam adjustment, low and high power mode, and SOS flashing strobe mode.
This aluminum constructed flashlight feels very durable, and is perfect for everyone from law enforcement to the home user.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by dcline 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!

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Benniman Just what I was looking for...
I have been looking for a rechargeable, rugged, flashlight with a beam I can focus and this does it all. The flashlight has a micro USB that it uses to recharge. The other end is standard USB. It comes with adapters for home and car and being that this is such a common connection, I can use several options to charge. The battery is a removable cartridge and it comes with two as well as a cartridge that takes regular batteries. It even comes with regular batteries. The charger connection can be protected when not using by sliding the metal end over it. Flashlight is all metal. The beam can be focused from wide coverage to a direct beam. It comes with a belt mount and wall mount. Unfortunetly, the wall mount I got looked like it was for a smaller flashlight. I was able to pop the clip off the belt mount and use it to replace the small one on wall mount so I could use wall mount. That is the only problem I had and why I gave it 4 instead of 5 stars.
