I bought this on a lark when I was ordering something else as it looked like it might work well based on the “bigger hammer” principle.
Just used it on an inspection for the first time… and though it IS kinda funky looking it turned out to be an amazing flashlight: lightweight, runs 10 hours + (I was curious, and left it on overnight) off 4 standard AA batteries and it puts out a very bright white light - it easily illuminated an 80’ long basement all the way to the far end.
Construction is just OK, and I would not want to get it wet, but at this piece I can afford to forget, lose, drop, drown or whatever three or four for the price of a Streamlight and charger, AND I don’t have to worry about run time as my both cameras also take AAs and I always have plenty of spares in the bag and four in my pocket.
I think this is gonna’ be my new attic, dark basement and dry crawl light.
(You can find them various places around the net.)
On caution though: it’s ***blindingly ***bright - you don’ want to accidentally look into it yourself, and you don’t want to to point it into someone eyes.
