Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by manwithtorch Very good flashlight
Pretty good torch
It has a max output of 83 lumens and is easy to use. It is bright enough for just about any type of use a flash light is used for. the beam of light is very bright and can reach out to about 100ft-120ft depending how dark it is.
I have used it for about a month now and the batteries are still good. It come with batteries in a tri battery pack that fits snugly in the torch.
It has five modes.
dim- to adjust the beam of light
Strobe- to annoy people
Nite light- the beam starts strong and then slowly fades away.
Signal- every time you move the light it turns on and when it stops it turns off.
SOS- most likly the most important mode.
When i first started to use this light it was slightly confusing. In order to use one of the modes you must first select the mode you want by holding the light away from you and point the mode you want by holding it towards the sky. Then click and hold the button for about 2 seconds and the mode that you have selected will start.
This torch does not come with a holster like the coast light does, but compared with it for the same price i would take the capabilities of this torch rather than a holster.
The light is also easy to clean and is very durable
Tail cap and the front lens come off so you will be able to clean it.
It is made of aircraft aluminum like all mag lite are and it is very durable
Its is also very nice and sleek in its design. Its is a little fat but I can live with it seeing as the cost light was about the same wight if not more.
I wish that this light was not 40$. I would of like to pay more like 30. But for a light that will last you a life time I consider this product to have a high value and to only increase in price in time.
