  • The ultimate flashlight

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    Firstly, this is probably the most plausible Maglite knockoff you can buy. It looks, functions and feels exactly like a Maglite.
    This flashlight's body feels incredibly strong.
    The "Police" logo on the top is rather small, which for me is a good thing (because some people simply don't understand that it's also a brand name).
    It has a VERY wide spill, and it's VERY bright. I was using this in a fire staircase to check out how well it performed, and it lit the entire place up. I was really quite surprised.

    Cons:

    There seems to be a battery contact problem with the end tailcap. It needs to be twisted to a certain position for the flashlight to light up. I'll be buying some RE magnets from DX to fix this (by providing steady contact from the tailcap coil to the last D battery). Fairly easy to fix so it's not worth an RMA. The light functions just fine so long as you have the tailcap rotated to that particular position.

    OtherThoughts:

    In case you haven't realised, this flashlight looks completely ridiculous when you're walking around with it. After picking it up from the post office, I was getting odd looks just walking through my apartment's basement with it in my hand. Still, it's highly effective, and nobody will complain when you're lighting up a very dark room with it.

    Bottomline:

    The ultimate flashlight you can buy, for a great price. If you're considering getting it, don't hesitate - it will certainly exceed your expectations.
