In response to the reviewer who said it was "garbage and will break where the threads connect": Will break or did break?

Because I've had mine for six years, taken it with me to Prague, Maine, LA, Alabama, Florida, Rome, London, and through the woods on weekend overnights. This light has never let me down.

I'd be more worried about the clip than the plastic body, but that part's help up, too.

The optical lens fitted over the single LED bulb means this light delivers an awesome cone of light at night, and that single bulb means the light lasts.

If you want a bright LED flashlight without buying a $200 Surefire, this is the one you want.

Price Paid: $24

Yes, plastic and lightweight, only bad thing was after three years of abuse the bulb finally began to strobe--looking for a new one now. Loved it, used for work and personal everyday use at work/traveled with me on numeous bicycle trips. Excellent for reading at night or finding your way to the little room. You'd have to jump on it to break it, dropped it 12 ft from boiler room ceiling made numerous banks on the way down and still worked. Only thing I ever broke on it was the clip. Got it hooked on something and not realizing gave it a yank. Batteries would have less than a volt apiece and light was still bright.

Price Paid: $10 on sale

Garbage plastic. Will break where the threads connect.
