    Almost Awesome

    I got a pair of these lights for my son and I to keep in our camping gear, based on my satisfaction with the larger version. These smaller versions are the perfect compromise in brightness and portability - when they work. The Pros: They are nice and bright, and when set wide, the coverage is very even without the "hot spots" typical of most flashlight designs in this price range. We call them our "Scooby-Doo" Flashlights, because the even coverage looks as if it's right out of a cartoon. Setting the beam narrow can light up a street sign with ease from a few blocks away. The ability to set the light for three modes is a handy feature - especially being able to reduce brightness. My only wish is that its "default" setting was dim, then bright. Also, the "3-point" lens opening enables you to stand it on end to produce a glowing light source. The Cons: Unfortunately, when camping this past January, my light (black) stopped working almost immediately, and the batteries got hot. I estimate that I got a total of 2-3 minutes of use prior to the trip. Thankfully, I always have a backup, and my son's (silver) continues to work flawlessly - so far. This lack of reliability alone took what would have been a 5 star review to a 2. Even if I replaced it, I wouldn't feel that I could rely on it when I need it most. Recommendation: I DO recommend this flashlight, but with the following advice: keep your packaging and receipt handy; keep a backup option available; and purchase with the understanding that you may be buying one flashlight, and one opportunity to contribute to your local recycling program.

    Purchased these flashlights after purchasing the larger Insignia D battery flashlight. I highly recommend that model but sadly best buy no longer carries it. The 6 AA flashlight is also good but a bit heavy and bulky, making it awkward to hold for regular use. Pros: -Light output is great for it's lightweight and small size. Cons: -easily overheats and will randomly stop working at times. It once shut off and wouldn't turn on because i put it in my pocket while it was on and it overheated after a minute. Might just be a QC issue but both flashlights do the same thing. Sometimes overheats from regular use after a few minutes and then takes a few minutes to cool down and turn on. -DO NOT USE RECHARGEABLE BATTERIES!!!! I used rechargeable Dynex batteries (best buy brand, i think). The flashlight doesn't use springs to hold the batteries. It uses a clicking button that creates too tight of a fit for the batteries. The pressure deformed the bottom of the batteries (both batteries because they are stacked) and now they are useless and won't charge after about a month of use. ONLY USE DISPOSABLE BATTERIES, if you plan on purchasing these flashlights.

    I have a lot of flashlights. I have one in every room in case of blackouts and others that are large, can stand, are lanterns, etc. that are good for hurricanes. For this size flashlight, this is the best. I had one of these flashlights I and compared it to my other flashlights. It’s light but easy to grip and has a very strong light, It is brighter than name brands with good reviews that I threw out for being dim. I dropped it on the sidewalk recently and although the metal scrapped in one spot, the flashlight worked perfectly.

    This flashlight really impressed me while shopping, and even more once I got it out of its package. The bright beam feature packs a wallop in dark places, while the low-beam option is perfect for milder needs. The sliding-focus capability greatly enhances the usefulness of this item. Wish it came with a carrying cord, but that shouldn't be difficult to improvise, while it's modest size means that it slips easily into my hip pocket. Used it as recently as yesterday afternoon. The strobe light feature is fun to have, though I don't know if I'll need it.

    I had read all the negative reviews about these lights, but I still liked the size, shape and weight. I also mentioned this to the checkout clerk. (about the reviews) Sure enough, I got to my car and 1 did not work properly (the black one) so I went back into the store and exchanged the whole package. They have worked perfectly ever since (several months) . Not one of the reviews I read ever mentioned returning them for a replacement. It was very easy to do and Best Buy stands behind what they sell.

    This twin pack of flashlights is great and the price is right. I've used them nightly for several months now and they suit my needs perfectly. Actually, I should say that I've used ONE of them for several months. Lost the other one down a ravine, but luckly, these come a twin pack so I had a spare. The beam isn't the most powerful out there, clearly, but it doesn't have to be. It's still pretty powerful though.

    Very good for the price. I've purchased a bunch of cheap led flashlights and this one's the best. Always looking for a torch that uses AAs and this one fits the bill. Good weight and construction. The flashlight has a nice, solid feel to it with good fit and finish throughout. It's perfectly sized: not bulky but just a little bigger than a pocket flashlight. It feels good in the hand. The zoom feature is very smooth with just the right amount of resistance. The beam pattern is clean without hot spots Recommended.

    Bright, easy to use. Cycling through modes is easy via clicking the power button multiple times. When the light's been off for a time (about 30 seconds) it'll go straight to the brightest option instead of the next mode. So when all you want is light you don't have to worry about it starting dim or flashing. It comes with off brand batteries that don't last long. Oh, well it's a flashlight, you're gonna replace the batteries eventually anyway.

    These compact LED flashlights are powerful enough to light your way during a power outage or to spot light a work area where it would require using one. It's made well & has been a welcome addition in upgrading to LED type flashlights. Small enough to carry around if needed or in bedside drawers. I'd highly recommend them as additional equipment items to anyone looking for a quality flashlight at reasonable price.

    Living in the northern US, I like to keep a few supplies in my car in case of severe inclimate weather. I was walking through Best Buy & found this kit was just what I was looking for. Two LED flashlights, one for the glove box & one for the emergency kit in the trunk. Very happy with the construction, solid feel, bright adjustable beam. Smaller than the old MagLight they are replacing. I would definitely purchase again.

    I use these flashlights at night during my pre-trip inspections of my big rig. They are rugged and shine very bright for my needs. I pop the hood of my truck, press the button on the light and BOOM! I believe the radius of the beam output is about 3 to 4 feet. I like the 3 options for the beam. Bright, low, and pulsating for emergency situations. Take it from me these flashlights are a great buy!

    They're pretty bright for the price. Solid construction. It's just a bit annoying that if you use the regular, bright function, when you turn it off and back on however much later, it automatically goes to the dim setting. And the next time, it will be the flashing function. You'll have to turn it off and on again a few times everytime you use it if you want it to be the bright mode.

    The two flash that I purchase on sale were very good for the price. The flash lift only take one AA battery which I found useful do to less waste when ready to dispose. The light for being small is very bright a light weight. I give it a five start because of size and good quality.

    I had the 2 pk. but one conked out after a few months. I wasn't happy about that. Maybe just bad luck. It just wasn't working right and got to a point where it just came apart. SO, down to one which is NOT where I wanted to be! The ONE that is working, I like the light and the fact that the light opens wide and it flashes!

    Flashlight has higher lumen spec than others. Nice feature is that the lens at the front telescopes slightly to widen the beam or narrow it for distance. Pressing endcap to rotate through 3 settings gives normal, bright, and flashing mode, but light retains last mode when turned off and on later, so you don't have to cycle through the modes.

    These work great for a month or so but then the contacts wear out the the light flickers on and off with the slightest movement. Have to tap on it to possible make it flash for a second. Both did this. Put in brand new batteries. Same problem. Threw them both in the trash. Look elsewhere.

    These are perfect for keeping in the car for emergencies. There is a flashing mode that works really well but wasn't described on the packaging as well as an easy to use focus feature. Both were a pleasant surprise. They have yet to be used enough to determine battery life but being LED I expect them to be great.

    These are very cheap and not bright at all. Even with fresh batteries. After about 3 months they both broke and no longer work. Something with the contacts inside because if I shake it or bang on it they will flash for a second and go out again. Waste of money!

    The best and brightest inexpensive flashlights I have ever purchased. Great quality and luminescent. You can adjust the beam to be wide or narrow. There are three light settings (bright, medium and pulse) and lightly pursuing on the button or a full push transfers betwix them.

    First set I received had a defective light. Exchanged in store with no problem. The body of the light is heavy duty and seems quite durable, but the lenses are loose so I don't think they would do well in a damp environment. As a general purpose flashlight they are bright and will serve you well.
