Pros

  • Compact
  • High output
  • Full focus
  • 3 level switch

Cons

  • Not totally waterproof

Range is 750 ft at high beam output, 10-15 ft wide area focus for inside room. Three-way adjustable switch with maximum 360 lumens. Fully adjustable slide focus with just the movement of your thumb. Lockable focus position.

Ideal for use with emergency situations, easily carried in pocket. Grips well when used for personal defense handgun spotting. Solid aluminum construction with lanyard loop slot.

Lengthy battery life due to the low, medium, and high settings. Not waterproof, but is definitely very water resistant.

Heavy duty l.e.d.  bulb ensures rough service and long life.

Definitely priced well and can be found at good discounts.

Perfect staple for my home defense and also the go-bag. Uses 4 AAA batteries and has a rear access on/off switch that is recessed to avoid accidental tripping.

Great find at $19 on sale at local Lowe's Home Center. Runs circles around my 4 D-cell Maglite.

Awesome utility tool.

I just got this light a few of months ago. It has a sturdy build. There are three power settings: low, high, and max (only if you hold the button down). It has a one hand focus which is really easy to use, it slides back and forth rather than twisting which is a little different.

The focusing range of this light is really impressive. The light is clear no matter what focus distance you are at.

The real surprise comes in its power. It boasts 192 lumens and 600 hours of runtime. I expect to cut the runtime in half for full power use. I have gotten about 800 feet of usable distance out of this light. It is also very compact which is nice for packing.

The best part of this light is that it is powered by 4 regular AAA's. Most lights of this power use something like a 123a which is an expensive lithium battery. So instead of refilling for $15 you can refill for like $2.

Overall this has been a great light, a little pricey up front, but save you a fortune in the long run.
