I purchased this light as a gift. He used this light twice for very short times and the switch failed. It is totally worthless without a switch. I am dissapointed in this product and in overstock.com for selling this product as other reviews state that the switch is a re-occuring problem. Overstock.com usually offers such quality products, they let this one slip through.
I recieved this item as a gift (xmas 2005) It was very bright but the charge life wasn't great. Not as bad as some of the other reviews. I charge it every few days. My problem is that the switch has gone out, making the tool completely useless. I hope the person I got this from didn't pay retail (49.99)...
When I recieved these, I immediately put them on the charger, excited to see how well they would work. I waited for the required 24 hours, and then found out they only hold about a 20 minute charge. If you're looking for a longer lasting flashlight, this isn't the one for you....but for emergency use, they are terrific so far.
Thought would be different but like all the lights i have bought will not hold charge.Hrd to turn on & off . Gives a good light when it does but onley for a short whilE Tput it aside for a few days will be dead on hext use.drections on useing are very good.
I previously had a 2 million candlewatt light that was MUCH brighter than this flashlight. This flashlight is really bulky for how bright it is. I have purchased several things from overstock and this is the first time I have been dissappointed in any of their products.
Worst product I ever bought from Big O. Waste of money, wouldn't hold a charge and threw it away within a month.
