This flashlight is so bright you will think there is an airplane landing in your living room. Use it to look under the couch and you will find things you thought you would never see again. I found a button from a cardigan I lost in 1982 when my brother and I had a wrestling match in my living room.

This ArmorMax 3C LED flashlight is much more than I had expected! I own a couple other LED flashlights that are pretty much stored in a junk drawer because the amount of light they produce is pitiful. This flashlight, however, is extremely bright and well built. The light can go from spot to flood with the turn of the light head. I shined this light down the road to a friends house a couple of blocks away from my house and it had no problem lighting up their yard. The included rubber housing pieces help it withstand damage from a fall to the ground. I intentionally dropped mine from head height and it continued to shine with no damage done to the light at all! Because this operates on 3-C size batteries (included) it does come with the weight of those batteries used to power this light. I do not mind the weight as it feels more sturdy in my grip. Another solution to the weight, if one did not want it so heavy, would be to use rechargeable C size batteries as they weigh far less. It does come with three light settings: High, Low, and Strobe; and can be toggled through the variations with the click of the rear power button. I could see the strobe come in handy if I found myself broken down on the side of the road to alert oncoming nighttime motorist. I ended up putting this in my truck glove compartment for that reason, as well as, just wanting a bright and dependable light source within arms reach. If I had any complaints about this light it would not pertain to the flashlight itself but rather the blister packaging. As anyone can attest they are a pain to open. Tucked deep inside the blister package was the little folded operating instructions and warranty information. I had almost tossed the packaging before even noticing this included information.

Turned the thing on, laid it down and it went out... because the LED had come off the base inside the light... very poor quality (but it was bright for a few seconds)...

Rated 5 out of 5Â by HowieZ The Defiant ArmorMAX 3C is bang for your buck
This is a great flashlight for the money. I've purchased several LED models of several brands from many sites, and this has been the nicest from a quality/performance/price perspective. I only dislike 2 things, the rubber caps, and the focus or beam adjustment. The lens end cap fits a bit odd, and maybe after was stretched on, it was misshapen and it will come back around, very minor quibble. The focus or beam adjustment does not seem to work as well as I'm used to with my old light. That may be reflector style or brand functionality, and not a deal breaker. Other than those minor points, this light throws out a TON of beam. On the low setting it's nice usable light, on strobe, I don't see much application. On high, I can light up an object over 100yds away easily.
