  • Good design let down by poor build quality

    Uses AA's.
    Floody light pattern.
    Really cheap.


    Awful build quality, a burr in the battery holder tube makes the battery holder difficult to insert and remove. When I first put batteries in it didn't work, the battery holder was the cause so I disassembled it, used some contact cleaner, reassembled it and it worked after that.

    Unfortunately it had two modes of identical brightness and a strobe (meaning one click on, three clicks off).

    The battery holder wouldn't output power with rechargeables. Also, due to the tight fit from rechargeables being slightly larger I had to pry the holder out with a screwdriver.

    A tad heavy, plus the strap is too tight at maximum length (as are all lights that share this common mount).


    Has unfocused LEDs, and relies upon the reflector to concentrate the light. Results in a good 180 degrees of light which makes it feel like the whole area is lit up.

    Seems like the 67-LED one (sku.8834) has consistent quality so I'd recommend that one over this despite having too many LEDs and being more expensive.


    Try your luck, you might get a good one.
