Impressively bright...but doesn't last very long.
I've had 2. The 1st failed within 6 months. I replace it, and the replacement light failed within 6 months.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by clif5441 Too Heavy
I ordered this for my husband as a Christmas present to replace a different model that he had for years. This light is so heavy I could barely hold it to use. To make things worse it didn't work and we had to return it to the store. My husband said it was bulky and heavy. We ordered a different model from Stanley that was cheaper and not as heavy.

This thing is BRIGHT!!! I have a 6-volt lantern that I thought was bright. When using it side by side with the HID Spotlight, the 6-volt is actually brighter where the light hits. But whereas the 6-volt lights up a small spot, the HID seriously illuminates a couple of dozen times more area. EVERYTHING gets lit up. It is more of a flood light than a spot light. With the 6-volt, you see a lit up spot about 10-15 feet across at 50 yards. With the HID, you see a field full of moths and bugs with a primary spot of about 60 feet across, plus residual light.
The LED lights need to be brighter to be useful, but you could find something you dropped if you had to. There is also a very thin V-shaped shadow in the top of the viewing area of the main light of maybe 5-10 degrees that is slightly annoying, but livable. For my use of locating errant pets or seeing the multiple critters that visit, it is a very good light.
It is hefty but not too bulky, very usable. It could use a stand of some type for hands off operation.

The light is heavy and very bright. Worked great for about a week then stopped working. It will come on then goes off, comes on then goes off.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by buildernyc this is a very powerful light that can illuminate a large area
the light does everything i wanted,it illuminates a large area particularly distant objects. however it is heavy and may not be suitable to carry on long trips on foot.
I use it around my house where its weight is not a factor.
the light is well made with good fit and finish.

I love this spotlight. This is the second one I have purchased. The first one is 3 years old and still works great. The charge usually last about 35 minutes with continuous use and about a week just letting dog out for nightly runs.
