Solid flashlight that works - but not as bright as the listing claims. I knew that the lumen ratings are usually highly exaggerated, so no surprise there. Bought this for a friend who is a home inspector - and he likes it a lot. Small enough to carry around, but not so small that you lose track of it. Nice that it takes the AA instead of odd-sized batteries.
This review is for the Darkstar 10W CREE XM-L T6 LED flashlight.
Shipment: the product came on time and in good condition, no blemishes or scratches.
Product: I'll go through each of the claims in the description.
Super Bright: CREE XML T6 LED with a lifespan of 50000 hours,this led flashlight has a light output of 500 lumens (Max). Ideal for camping, hiking, workshop both outdoor and indoor use
- I have not been able to use it for 50 thousand hours, but it has been about a week and a half of staying on (switching batteries every so often). The flashlight is still going strong. The light output is definitely high. Think your iPhone's flash light function and go 2 times brighter.
Five lighting modes: high,medium, low,strobe,SOS;features smooth reflector makes this handheld flashlight has 500 feet beam distance
- I love these lighting modes. They are extremely useful to switch in between...
STROBE - What an idiot option on a flashlight
Outside of that... Awesome light. Has some decent heft to it and has been working fantastic.
