Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Krookz Great light
This is a pretty good light. VERY bright and seems well built. It dosnt on say the packaging... but it is waterproof. Its sealed and I tested it. It has a Cree XML emitter on top of some pretty decent heat sinks. It has a simple on-off button, none of that multi-mode junk other manufacturers offer.
I bought one on a whim to see how it was, ended up buying two more the same day.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by hurleydude187 Bright!
I got this flashlight for Christmas after flipping through an AD and pointing it out that I wanted one. Was surprised when I opened it up on Christmas day and shined it outside, and whoa is it bright! I have a Pecan Tree in the backyard, and always have Raccoons, Squirrels, and even Owls who like to scramble about. Shining this light through the limbs is great now because it doesn't just shine the front of the tree, it shines Everything. Have already had to use it inside for a blackout, makes a great lantern when propped up against something and shined on the ceiling. Sturdy, bright, cheap batteries, you'd be hard pressed to find a better deal!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Matt 50% better than my 3-d cell led Maglite
I'm a part time deliver driver, I work most of the time during the night(small county, bad lighting)
Here is my one night experience with this 500 lumens light.
- No fancy feature, simple to use.
- Feel solid, but build quality not as good as my 3-D Meglite. With the tactical head, it makes me feel safe.
- Brighter than my LED Meglite, even though you can't adjust the focus, the beam can let me see house numbers easier than the Meglite
- Smaller and lighter than my Meglite, I sometime scared my customers when they open their door and see my "huge" Meglite lol
- with tax it still cheaper than my Meglite
Very satisfy with this light so far

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by EdH308 a very good light, recommended
This light delivers a VERY bright beam, easily matching or exceeding my non-LED 3 cell maglite (though lacking the adjustable focus of the maglite). This is the brightest LED light I have personally seen. It has a tightly focused very bright beam but also a broader, less-bright beam, so it's like a searchlight within a regular beam--hard to describe, but a good compromise that gives you the best of both worlds despite the beam not being adjustable. Also, according to the packaging it has a lifetime warranty (I think the description online says one year). It is in very short supply in my area (NE Ohio) so it may take some looking or an online order.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by NHIowa Great light extremely bright decent throw
Impulse buy for me but not regretting it. Using it about twice a week in place of smaller lower lumen torches. Throw is about 150 feet before it spreads out so much that it 's not very helpful. I'm sure it would be visible from the stated 230 meters but this isn't a portable headlight for a car. Batteries that it shipped with are still hanging tough so I'm pleased that it's not a battery monster. At 20$ I feel like this was a deal. Build feels solid albeit on the large size (would prefer a shorter light for tight spaces but I do have smaller lights I can use in those cases. Would take this over a D cell maglite in a heartbeat.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JJM3 Nice light for twenty bucks.
This light seems like a steal for $20. Nice white color, doesn't have all of those rings in the beam like many maglights that I've seen. And it reaches out a pretty good distance with usable light. Lights up everything to at least fifty yards. Given it's length, the on/off switch on the side of the light makes it easy to operate. However, I wouldn't be overly confidant about it being water proof. After taking apart, it seems like there are a few spots where a rubber o-ring could have been installed. But for $20, you can't do much better then this.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MrBill250 Bright White light, very solid light.
Unlike so many of the plastic ones, this one is made of aluminum. The barrel has some texture, so it's easy to hold. It has a good solid feel, could use as a small club if needed.
Everything screws together and it has O Rings where it come apart so it should stay dry inside.
A nice simple on/of button (under a rubber gasket). No strobe, just a dependable light.
The light is bright and very white. So much brighter than my xenon bulb Mag-Lite with 4 fresh D cells. Makes it look like a pen light.
At $20, I'm gonna buy another to keep in the car.
