  • Bright Lighr!

    I came home from an evening out to find power out in our neighborhood. We live in a fairly wooded area on edge of town, so it was dark! I grabbed my new flashlight. So awesome! Lit up the whole room. My husband was so jealous that Im going to get him one for Christmas.

  • Why Did It Take So Long.....

    This item was shipped directly from the Manufacturer in New Jersey. I LIVE in New Jersey and it took a while for it to reach me. When it finally got here, the box was battered, the envelope was torn up and wrinkled, and the flashlight had scratches. For the price I could live with the scratches and especially after I put the batteries in, everything worked just fine. I like the item, I like that it is a "defender", and all of the different light phases are awesome.
