    I will not go anywhere without this little light in my shirt pocket.In my house for all kinds of situations of either looking for things in a closet or safe or drawers and for reading small print or finding something in the attic. This little light is great. In your vehicle or looking under you hood, so many uses for this light. Once you start keeping this light with you, you will find it is so useful. Even if your electricity goes out this little light will do you proud. Batteries last a long long time. A very good item to have and the quality is very good. I keep several on hand and every where I go this little guy is in my shirt pocket. Lights up a room like a big light but it is so small and dependable . Love it !!!

    A lot of these cheaper lights have a weird fucused beam that has little to no spillage. This is just floody enough to not sacrifice throw. I’m always taking it with me because of the quality of the beam and the low price. I took it to a SEC football game that was played at night so I could light up the ally’s on the way back to the car. It’s also useful sl drivers can see you as a pedestrian. When I first turned it on I think the crowd around me thought I was a cop due to how quickly they all turned around. The clicks end cap is very snappy, thought the rubber cover on the button and the pocket clip leave a lot to be desired. But again this was a few bucks on deal of the day. I would get another couple in case I make the mistake of offering a flashlight to someone again.

    This little light in my opinion is the perfect size, and is pretty bright for the price. The light was less than $10,and operates on 2 aaa batteries. I really like the light,but the bulb and lens assembly came loose and rattle around causing the light not to work without a good shake. If you are in need of a light for daily use I would not recommended. If you need one for a just incase situation it works. I used the light for about three days pretty frequently before I had any issues. I'm an auto mechanic and kept it in my pocket. Clip was good I didn't loose it, just got really aggravated with it not working when I needed it to.

    Working in the medical field, I have bought countless penlights, and they all end up not working by the end of the week. More often than not, the culprit of the penlight genocide is falling out of my pocket onto the floor. Other times, they just stop working out of nowhere; probably the victim of some evil vodoo swamp magic, which is the only logical explanation. Anyways, I recently purchased this Insignia light, and it works perfectly. Wicked bright, it can light up an entire room practically; almost blinds my patients when i do neuro assessments, but I like it! I've also dropped it a bunch because curiosity gets the best of me, and it still works! ;)

    A LED spotlight Pen is a perfect solution

    I purchased this LED Penlight because of a BB Deal of the Day. But let me tell you, this has been my go to solution when I need a quick portable light to read, walk down the stairs, or the kids want a flashlight to build tents. I love that it fits in your pocket just like a regular pen would, its a bit bigger but not much. The battery last a long time. I've had mine for months and its still on the same battery upon installing it. The reach of the light from the pen is about 20-30 meters as described. It does the job well. Its a great answer to those that need a quick pocket/bag light solution.

    Love this pen light! I bought 2. One to keep in my purse and one in my glove box. It lights up pretty bright. I tested it out in my 2 car garage with the lights out, and it lit up the garage nicely, giving me more light then my old fashioned non-led hand held flashlight. It lights up your path very nicely and is a great light if you are in need of one. Doesn't take up much room at all in my purse or glove box. It's made of nice metal, all back with a black rubber "clicker" on the head of the pen and also a clip if you want to clip it to a shirt pocket, purse pocket, etc. I bought it at a discounted price, totally worth it!

    When I first saw the Insignia LED Penlight I thought to myself "probably as bright as a night-light". However, I was pleasantly surprised at the brightness and "crispness" of this penlight - especially considering the <$10 price tag. Although the body is not made from the nicest/strongest metal, it is still strong enough to weather a few bumps and drops from the tops of ladders . If you need a cheap but dependable penlight, then look no further!

    The flashlight is light,efficient and very handy. I always have it with me - especially when going for a short walk at night, or when walking my dog in our area. Recently, we had a flat tire on our way home from an evening service,and it was so handy, and efficient to use. My wife had requested me to buy one for her( to be kept in her truck). I am very pleased to have bought it at Best Buy.

    I bought this light as just one to have in my council of my truck, as its compact and built very durable. To my surprise this little pen light is very bright., almost blinding. Compared to some bigger flashlights this one is one of the brightest. The easy push button to turn off and on is easily reachable with one hand so you can have a free hand well working.

    Nice Compact Light

    I purchased this light as a back up to my normal work light. This is a very handy little light to have on hand. At 45 lumens, it's not terribly bright, and in daylight it can be hard to see, but for inspecting in dark areas, this light shines bright. I have been using this light on a daily basis for the last 2 weeks and it has held up great and worked like a champ. Sure this light could be better, (whiter light output, brighter) but for the cost and size, it works just fine.

    This little flash helps out in low light areas up close when you need it most. It's bright enough to get your tasks done without being blinded by reflective glare. It is about the size of a magic marker, and has a clip on it like a pen would have, just more sturdy. Being it was on sale $10 I think it was well worth the price. AAA batteries are included so you don't have to buy any.

    Use this for work everyday. Will probably pickup another one for the car or tool chest. I move the pen clip so that I can clip it to my hat (like a baseball hat) when my headlamp goes out. I don't have to worry about accidentally clicking it on like my other flashlight on my belt does and turning it off/on is still pretty easy. No malfunctions after almost two months on the original batteries. I'm a tech, so I use it everyday.

    Best Penlight ever...

    This penlight works well and the LED light is so bright that I could use this penlight almost everywhere from work in the clinic to home. It has a good battery life with 2 AAA size battery that last long. I haven't change the battery since I bought this 4mos. ago. This penlight is pricey about $7 plus tax but it's all worth it. Durability and reliability it's all what I'm looking for a good penlight. There you have it, good penlight at last.

    I bought 2 of these. One for Mom and one for me and after my sister seen them, she wanted mine ! They put them in their purse so they would have a light handy when they needed it. Now I have to buy me another one. I was surprised at how well they were made and how bright they were. Excellent price too.

    I purchased three of these when it was the Deal of the Day. What a bargain. Not only is it bright, easy to activate with the push button top, has a clip, it also came with the batteries! Definitely recommended if you need a small flash light for your car, purse or kitchen drawer. I've been using it when I walk outside at night to see my way and signal my presence to an occasional passing car.

    The light looks good and it pretty bright, but turning it off is comical. Not once has it turned off with one click. In fact it usually takes 5 or 6 clicks on the tail cap to turn off this absolute piece of junk. If it wasn't for the $5 I "won" in their last promo, I'd have taken it back. Save your money and buy a maglight or a surefire. Both are much better quality than this.

    I bought the Insignia LED Penlight approximately a year ago as an emergency flashlight. The Penlight is very durable and provides a strong beam of light. The battery life lasts longer than other flashlights as I have not had to switch them out in the year I have had it. I highly recommend the Penlight for anyone looking for a smaller, durable bright light.

    I purchased this product since it was on sale and I use flash lights a lot because of my work, I like the size and the fact you can carry in your pocket but the only thing sometimes it doesn't wanna turn on, so I have had it so far for 4 days I'm gonna give it couple more days to try if it's still doing the same I might have to return it

    The first device I bought was defective and had to be returned. Check the light soon after buying to ensure reliability. No problem exchanging for another of the same kind. It is a strong, light and very adequate device for your simple lighting needs.
