This is definitely one of the cooler flashlights I have seen. The flashlight aspect is very bright without a lot of spread. I got decent visibility even at 100 feet distance. Within 10 feet it was very bright. The lantern aspect also worked very well. I was impressed with that as well. The flashing red led’s are excellent for a road side situation or to signal distress. The magnet on the base will hold the flashlight to a metal surface but only in the vertical position. I tried a variety of metal surfaces, stove, fridge, car fender and the magnet is not strong enough to hold the flash horizontally despite their photo showing it horizontal on a car. I don’t feel that is a drawback to the light. It would be a nice additional feature but not necessary. This flashlight will replace the current light in my car’s glove compartment. (does anyone actually keep gloves in there?) I recommend it. I received this light for free and was asked to do an honest review, frankly I always write what I think but it doesn’t hurt to point out that fact. Despite being free, I really like the flashlight.
If reviewing a product, it may have been received free of charge. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
