    This flashlight is the real deal. Brighter than a PD30 and most Surefire models by far.

    Of course, the build quality/weight does not make it a good choice for a mounted light. For a handheld/car light it is A++. It really IS 400 lumen. Takes CR123s (2) or AAAs (4).

    A Chinese slave worked hard to make this the least you can do is buy one or two.

    OK I had to try it. Had a 30mm ring that fit it. So for about $12 invested. This crazy thing is like a car halogen headlight. Heavy, yes. Too big, yes. But wow - the light this thing throws, adjustable beam with easy to access dial. Sorry for crappy cell pic.

    Vs TLR-2

    $10 on right plus has adjustable beam; on widest beam coverage it is still as bright or brighter. If you drop it or break it who cares.

    You cheap -o.......but that's the theem for that kel. Looks like a great deal but I'm skeptical, every cheapo light I've had failed. I'll peep yours out. And test vs the Gerber recon 2, surefire 6P/200 lumen bulb, surefire 952, surefire defender and TLR-1.

    can you share with me the battery life of the 10$ flashlight?
    I am interested how often I would have to swap out the CR123a's.

    SVT - some people aren't rich like you - spoiled spoon fed!!! LOL Let's get out to the range. I am hoping this week.

    Seriously the light is just too big and heavy for a desirable weapons light. It sure is worth $10 for a grab and go light though. Somehow you get the thing in less than 4-5 days all the way from China. I would say the life is 1.5-2 hours most likely. I'll bring you a freebie, bought four myself.

    Thank you for your help with possible run time.
    I will look for another listing from the seller, and give it a go.

    Here's another seller. I am convinced they are all listed from the same factory. People are getting wise, so the price is creeping up. I didn't realize they take THREE battery configs - 3 AAs, 2 CR123s, or one 18650 battery - that is nice + you can get them in rechargeables.

    Once you get it, tell me that thing isn't the brightest small flashlight you have ever held. It is impossible to look into it - I tried of course.

    i've been playing with that for a few months. it's not 400lm projected. the zoom lens is
    a bit laughable. better buy is the 3 pack at Costco using CREE's for $20 pack.

    I bought one of those three packs and the light was anemic. Maybe it is a different one now.
