FTC Disclosure

Life is complicated enough without getting into hotwater with federal agencies so: TAKE NOTE Many things I review I got at no charge in exchange for an honest review. Consider this as informing you that ALL things I review may have been gotten at no charge. Realistically about 60% but in order to keep things above board just assume that I got the stuff free. I do not collect information on my readers. If cookies or other tracking stuff is used on my blogs it is due to BLOGGER not ME. Apparently the European Union's new rules state I need to inform you if cookies are being use. If they are it isn't byu me, consider yourself INFORMED.
Words like, “sponsored,” “promotion,” “paid ad” or even just “ad” are clear ways to disclose that you’re being paid to share information and links so BE AWARE that some of what I write can be described as an AD by the government. BTW I will NEVER say a product is great, super or even acceptable if it isn't, whether I got it free or NOT!

AYL TC80 4-In-1 LED Flashlight

Roughly two weeks later: The vendor replaced the flashlight.  The new light works just fine.  Obviously, I got a defective one.  It was cumbersome to get a replacement. I finally figured out how to message the vendor through Amazon messaging.  Sadly I did not know how to do that prior to this experience or perhaps that is a good thing.  I would advise the vendor to put some kind of contact information on their box or on their instruction sheet.  It was very frustrating trying to figure out how to make contact with them.  Flashlight should be five stars now but the difficulty to making contact forced me to ding them a star for poor communication.  Once communication was established it went just fine.

Interesting flashlight from AYL but sadly it failed immediately.  I followed the diagram to put batteries in the flashlight and I had a functional flashlight for less than 5 minutes.  It stopped working.  I thought perhaps I had old batteries and I tested the batteries with my battery tester.  They showed just fine. I replaced the batteries with a new set anyway and still no light. I thought perhaps I was reading the symbols incorrectly so I reversed the batteries, still no light.  I then emailed the vendor to see if they had a solution.  I did not get an email back.  I could find no contact information on the vendor on their Amazon page in spite of their Limited Lifetime Guarantee.  The flashlight seems like a high quality build.

  I guess it just is a bad unit but since I don't have another one to compare it to I am forced to write a less than stellar review.

I did receive this flashlight at no charge in exchange for an honest review. 

If reviewing a product, it may have been received free of charge. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
