The flashlights are well made and have many features.

Rating: rated 2 of 5 stars
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: about 35-40 dollars

Summary

The flashlights are well made and have many features. However—the long term quality for everyday use is very poor. I have had 4+ units and all have had the same problem of the switch failing. NEBO was good about warranty (sent in 4 for repairs and I received 3 back).
In the long haul—these are OK for occasional use—not for work or real use, but more for novelty.

Pros

  • Magnetic end to support the light
  • Bright light, ultra-violet and green lights
  • Nice design—easy to use

Cons

  • The switches do not last in everyday use
  • The model number is glued on—it falls off after a few days use—so I do not have a model. Their other flashlights have the same sticker.

200 lumens for under 70 dollars is fine in my book!

Rating: rated 4.5 of 5 stars
Price Paid: $20 NAPA Auto parts

200 lumens for under 70 dollars is fine in my book! various modes, rugged design, and compact size make it worth its weight in gold! too bad no lanyard!
