Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Michael Amazing Brightness and Amazing Battery Life.
I have not had this flashlight long, so I cannot claim how good it is longterm. However, it has amazing battery life and is extremely bright and dwarfs all other flashlights I and most people own in brightness.Granted, it is a lot more expensive than most other flashlights however, the build seems solid and assuming it is long lasting and as durable as it seems and the batteries continue to be sold by Ryobi, I expect this flashlight to be the only one I or most people will ever need. My main concern would be how long the special battery lasts and if Ryobi will continue selling them for a long time or not. For anyone concerned about the cost of the batteries, it really is not much more than regular batteries for a flashlight and these last a lot longer and a lot brighter and can be recharged. I highly recommend it.

This light has a very good output and the price was good. I just wish that the tek4 line was more successful. I like them but it seems they are winding down the line.

At first I thought the price was a bit high but after using it for several months I am sold on it. I belong to the local CERT (Community Emergency Response Team) group and requested the whole team be supplied with this flashlight.
I have already bought two more for Christmas gifts.

I was outside late at night this past weekend in a rather dark, heavily wooded area with some friends, attempting to get a bon fire started. This flashlight, BY FAR, out shined the others, one of which was another LED light. Excellent product!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by EGinCA Very Bright, Good Run Time
I've been using this light for a couple of months now. It has great run time for the little 4v batteries and is very bright. I just wish the switch was easier to find without looking at it.

Advertised as a "high beam" and that is a very accurate description. Purchased this in addition to the smaller Tek4 light and am very satisfied with both. This light has a far and wide path of illumination. Great for late night trips outside with the dog - no more worry about what I can't see.
Battery recharges quickly and you can tell when it needs a recharge. The other night I noticed that it wasn't as bright as usual, I put the battery in the charger for a few minutes (I was in a hurry) and was pleasantly surprised that a few minutes did the trick.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by larri3 I liked this flashlight so much that I gave one to my son and two sons-in-law. Very bright.
I love this flashlight. It's amazingly bright and makes it so much easier to see things under beds, in unlit storage rooms and outside. I could have bought one of the many other models of LED flashlights that are carried by Cabela's or Sportsman's Warehouse, but those rely on alkaline batteries, and the really bright ones go through batteries fast. I bought a spare battery and seldom need it. The switch should have a bump on it or something to make it easier to find in the dark. Or maybe a glowing switch.

Good bright lightweight flashlight. I have had zero problems with this unit but have found the on/off button is hard to find in the dark.

Brought this light for pedaling my trike at night. The side glows when its on, giving added visibility. Nice broad beam, lights up the stop sign over a block away. I usually take short trips so the 1 hr. run time isn't a problem. Real deal compared to bike lights.

This light is super bright and can take a beating. Between going up windturbines with me and now being dropped 16 plus feet onto concrete three times, this flashlight just asks for more! Everyone should have one of these lights !

Can't go wrong with the Ryobi brand. I have nothing but Ryobi tools and I work in the overhead crane industry. I use and abuse them and they all hold up.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by ratbitten only ok
On-off switch is flush- very hard to find if in a dark area, especially if you are scared and want light fast. Ryobi should have considered an end-cap switch or at least raised the existing switch. No option to

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Dontworryboutit Don't waste your money..
I work in industrial hvac and plumbing and need a super bright light to locate repairs in low light areas so i thought i would pick this flashlight up, it took a hour to charge and lasted 20 minutes in the field and it died. It says it produces 220 lumens but that is far off, dont get me wrong it is bright but not 220. I should've known better than to buy anything made by ryobi, their products are subpar. Needless to say the light got returned the next day.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by bigndn This flashlight is super for the price
Purchased my flashlight to use at work. We drill pier holes in the ground for concrete placement. I needed a very bright flashlight to be able to view the bottom of the hole. This flashlight did the trick. I keep it in my truck, and we have used it quite a few times for other things. People always ask where did you get that bright flashlight? I bought a couple for Christmas gifts also.

This flashlight is compact, gives off a very large and bright beam and is easy to use and very sturdy. Just started to use it so I can't rate as to how long the rechargeable battery will last between charges and overall during its lifetime.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rick Great flashlight for the money
Very durable, one of the brightest for the buck and has a great non adjustable beam for my use. My other tacticle lights are 3 times the cost and I can't say their a whole lot better than this one. Plus it's larger size has eliminated me accidently loosing it!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by leo50 Great little light and super bright
Everything people say about this light is right on. Its great and bright, last for over an hour if never turned on. The On button is a pain if you are in the dark trying to turn it on. You just have to figure out where it is, but its difficult. If the button was easier, 5 stars.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jimmy Join the Bright Side!
It has been a little over a year now, a reasonable endurance test before review. It comes with the flashlight, rechargeable battery, charger, and owner's manual.
My first impression of this flashlight was, "WOW!" This flashlight made every incandescent flashlight I have ever own to bite the dust. I can confidently say that it has 220 lumens, color of the light is neutral white, it has about an hour of runtime (bright), an ON/OFF switch settings, it is light (0.45 lbs.), feels good to grip, impact resistant, protruded rubber feet to prevent scratches on the lense, and it is waterproof! No more disposable batteries, burnt out filament bulbs, and when it is dirty, I could just wash it with dish soap.
There are three reasons why I rated it 'Good' rather 'Excellent' on Quality and Value.
- At the time of my purchase it cost $50, so I paid an extra $20. (Sad face) Still worth.
- It takes an hour to charge the battery, or you could cut the charging time in half (36 min) by purchasing the "Ryobi Tek4 4-Volt Rapid Charger with 4-Volt Lithium-Ion Battery".
- The tailcap cracked a little, thus, it is no longer waterproof. Would be nice if they improve the quality of tailcap on their next batch or version.
In summary, I am very satisfied with the TEK4 5W Flashlight; it has exceed in brightness, durability, water resistance, and eco-friendly, over many flashlights in the retail market. I highly recommend this flashlight.
P.s. I will post a picture of its ability to illuminate and the flashlight's condition when I get the chance.
