Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by granola Bright, great in candle mode
These flashlights are very bright, as noted in other reviews. But here's a great additional feature: remove the front part (containing the reflector), and you reveal a tiny bright LED shining equally in all directions! Stand it on a table and you have a great "candle" light. Traditional LEDs shine in one direction, and you need weirdly shaped reflectors to try and spread the light around for candle-style illumination. Not here.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Flashaholic Great Value! Closer to 250 lumens than 100 Lumens! 3 hour runtime.
These 2 lights are EXTREMELY bright! The packaging and specs are a little misleading/confusing. The packaging says 100 lumens and a 7hr runtime (350 mah calculated draw ). The site says 100 lumens 3hr runtime (doesn't work mathematically). This is brighter than the Coast 210 lumen light I have, and these lights have a Cree XB-D led driven at a measured 1.1 amps. According to Cree, this should be around around 250 lumens and this looks about right. With 3 AAA batteries at around 1000 mah each, that gives 3 hours of runtime. This is a great price for 2 250 lumen lights, but don't expect 7hrs of runtime, 3 is about all you will get.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 318Live Best 100 lumens value
Light output is impressive for such a compact size. The led is deeper than the mini maglites, which results in a better lighting distance. Low price means I can have enough to store around the house and in the cars. The only quality dislike I have is the on/off button, which feels cheap because the rubber is a lot bigger than the button that is underneath it. I'd recommend this product, but go and test it out at home depot if they have display models(mine did). Beware of low batteries on displays, because mine was much brighter than the display.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Chiroman Best flashlight with 100 lumen below $ 10 pairs
Bought two pair of flashlight today and try it out at night. Wow, it is very bright with 100 lumens. It will blind someone eyes easy with very strong bright high power LED light. Yes, this is HPLED, not cheap low power led bulb. For the qulaity, performance and the price, you won't go wrong with this pair. But it doesn't come with lanyard, so I have to make one by myself. Hurry, I think it will be sold out fast in the store. I highly recommend this to anyone who want a light weight, good quality and super bright led flashlight.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by disenchanted Incredible quality and brightness for the price!
This year Home depot has a couple of "winners".
If you can't afford to give everyone on your Christmas list a 550 Lumen defiant, HD SKU# 115 235 for $19.99 then give them one of these.
1. solid construction - all aluminum I believe.
2. single CREE LED (no el cheapo multi-LED on this light).
3. common batteries - uses fairly cheap, very easy to find, AAA
4. the "whiteness" of this LED is very good.
Many LED or LED retrofit kits have lights that give off white and some degree of "yellowishness".
This LED is almost completely white.
Just a very very small degree of yellowishness.
1. has not been on sale since they came out earlier this month.
But even at the full price of a 2-pack for $9.88, it still is a great value!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TowTruckDriver And there was light. Lots of LIGHT!
I have been using flashlight for work for the last 20 years and these guys take the cake. I would compare them to flashlights that are three times the cost and these would come out on top of some of the more expensive flashlights.
The size is small, operation is a breeze. Single button on/off easily accessible. They fit in a pocket or tool bag without a problem. The battery life is not an issue, and the fact that it uses AAA batteries means you can go into any nearby store and get fresh batteries, unlike some of the dedicated batteries that require you to charge overnight.
The only thing that I would to to these flashlights is, make the finish a little coarser for better grip. They have a smooth finish, nice but maybe a little too smooth in some situations.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by realworldreview Defective out of the package
One light worked, the second did not. It appeared the LED of one of the lights had a small piece torn from the lens of the LED. The LED of the light which did work had a discolored hue. Overall, the build quality was extremely poor. No O-ring seals, and the body of the light was a very loose fit. With one defective light and the poor quality construction, this product was promptly returned.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Trapper50 Awesome product for the price!!!!
Very bright. As bright as my Fenix 258 lumen and almost as well built. I live in the country and It will light up out to 100+ yards. I have one in every vehicle and a couple in the house. My local Home Depot is always out of stock. I will buy several more when available.
