I own this light and a similar Pelican 2600. Both lights are great and very bright. The Pelican does not zoom to a spot light like the Flashin does but offers a flood light with a bright spot in the middle. The Flashin when zoomed in to a spot light is brighter than the Pelican and the light is a brighter white while the Pelican is more of a warmer yellow light in comparison to it, though looking at the Pelican by itself you wouldn’t know that. I own lots of Flashin products and they are all solid. Flashin’s customer support is top notch. If you have any problems with any of their products they will make it right. This light is no different than their other products in quality and at less than half the cost of the Pelican it is a great value.
I own about a dozen LED tactical flashlights and lanterns ranging from $10 to $130 and this Flashin flashlight is now my favorite. It's a medium sized flashlight with a durable aluminum body. I've dropped it a few times without any issues. The light output is very bright - about 900 lumens! It has 5 modes (High, Medium, Low, Strobe, and SOS). The unit comes with a rechargeable 3350mAh battery, which makes this a great deal! My favorite feature is the fact that the flashlight has a built-in micro USB charging port. So, instead of taking out a separate charger, you can charge the flashlight directly. I love this thing!
First one didn't work properly because I could not switch between different modes no matter what. Contacted Customer service and received prompt reply. The following communication was friendly and smooth.They sent me another one without requesting to send back the defective one. The second one works perfectly. It's easy to switch between the different modes, very bright, and easy to carry around for its compact size. Overall the quality of the second one is very good. Haven't tried to use it for tactical purpose and hope never do so.Flashin is known for its electronic products, and making flashlights might be new to them. Hope they maintain their excellent customer service and continue to improve their QC.
So far I'm very impressed. Good quality fit and finish, much better than most of the Chinese flashlights on the market (not certain where this is made). Very bright, with a flawless light circle and the best adjustable beam I've seen. Smooth push pull action goies from a tight beam to wide angle with just the right amount of resistance, solid feel, and no flaws in ghe bram shape. Honestly, the light output and beam shape are better than mt surefire light with the same stated output - and this light cost 1/6 as much. That said, it's not quite as bombproof and not made in the US.Love the usb charging capability. LED turns from red to green when charged. First charge took about 6 hours, and the battery had juice in it from the factory. Battery seems like a nice quality unit - not the generic rechargeable you might expect to be included.My one complaint- changing light modes is unintuitive from the tailcap. Very easy to get a strobe when what you want is a solid beam, and it took me 10 minutes of fiddling to be sure I had it on the brightest setting.Overall, very pleased. Dump the strobe - this is not a tactical" light. Simplify the switch. Flashin has a winner
This is the brightest flashlight I've ever had. Just about to bright. When I first got it I let it charge over 8 hours until the red light turned green. Then I turned out the room lights and when I turned this light on I actually started sneezing like you do if you look at the sun. I was going to use it to adjust our therostat but its so bright I have to point it at the ceiling or floor and let the light reflect onto the thermostat. It's very bright. And it has different modes, one being a strob that will drive someone nuts. Well worth the money. Well built. Probably better outdoors than in. Don't look at the beam. You'll be blinded for minutes.
Really worth the discounted price for a compact and very bright flashlight. It is too large for my pocket (I carry a single cell AA LED in my pocket always) because it uses the 18650 rechargeable lithium cell. It is 3/4 longer than most good 18650 based LED flashlights because it has a built in recharging circuit. This is really nice. Any micro-USB will charge this sucker right up. You never have to remove the battery for charging. It loos well made and water resistant. I haven't tested it to see if it's fully waterproof
As is my experience with nearly all of the Flashin products I own, this is an exceptional product. The upsides are: very bright, super easy charging with a standard microusb cable, well made and durable. The downsides: I don't like that the front of the light slides forward and back to adjust beamspread. This results in the beamspread setting changing by simply putting this flashlight in your pocket or bumping it on something. I prefer that a twisting motion be required for this. Also, I'm not a fan of having 5 different brightness settings that are controlled by how fast you push the on/off switch and include strobe and SOS settings. I mean, seriously, has anybody ever used an SOS flash setting?? All in all it's an exceptional product and it has traveled with me to many countries and states. Its standard carry equipment in my carry-on bag and I don't leave home without it.

Being very legally blind ,one eye totally blind I depend on light which my retinal disease can no longer produce.I have to be able to see my dog when I let him out at night or early morning. But this flashlight has become more than just dog purpose. It helps me in my home in much of my activities. This flashlight is amazing , easy to zoom , very bright , rechargeable,fits in my pocket. Also 18 month warranty - thanks Flashin for that. These flashlights will make great Christmas presents ! Great reasonable price. So easy to use for a senior ( over 65 ) I appreciate this more than I can say. Thank you very much !

Like all Flashin products (I have a few) it is very well made and very well packaged. Very bright out of the box. I'm charging them now (just unscrew the end cap and plug in the micro USB cable). The LED shows red while charging and changes to blue when charged. It has the flashing options that some other flashlights have (High
I am a huge fan of Flashin products! This flashlight is very bright and handy, until you drop it. It was a great until it fell out of its cover from my waist to the floor. The problems then began. It seems to be completely dead now. However, when charged the battery seems full. I thought it was a fluke...I bought a second one; however, in less than one month the newer one died also...Update: what amazing customer service! The Flashin product team got back to me since I was still under warranty. I received replacement flashlights. This has been one of my favorite flashlights. I work in a detail oriented position where lighting is very important. The brighter lumens will aid you in detecting defects. Thank you Flashin team for your support
This is an extremely bright light for its size. I can light up the side of my neighbors house which is several acres away from me. It produces a square beam that is super bright. I use it regularly around my property and have only charged it a couple if times. I bought another one for my truck because I need a bright light available that isn't too big and bulky. This is a very, very bright light. I actually used it to blind an opossum until I could walk up to it and pick it up to relocate it down the road and keep out of my garden. My wife couldn't believe I did that! I highly recommend this light.
This flashlight is very nice. The battery can be updated easily if you wanted to but there really no reason to. Charge time is a little slow but it's very very bright. Some reviews have mentioned it gets warm after extended use. I noticed that too at first. But I had it on for an hour or two straight the other day (granted, I wasn't holding it) and when I picked it up it wasn't warm at all. I like the zoom function, though occasionally some dirt can get in the slide and will cause it to feel gritty. Overall a very good compact light. Also, this is the fourth product I've bought from Flashin and I have yet to be anything but extremely impressed with the quality of their products especially for the price
Very solid flashlight that has some good weight to it. The LED is very bright and being able to adjust it from spot beam to flood light works very well. It's great that you can charge it so you aren't always replacing batteries. The button is a little tough to push in but you get use to it. You can half press the button if you just need the light on for a second then when you let go it turns off. I really like that it remembers what setting you have it set to and turning it off and on only requires a single button press instead of cycling through all the modes like this other one I have at home.
Best flsglight I own. I wont bother upgrading to a nitecore or other high end model because this light is great. Use this daily for inspections on construction sites. Drop it regularly with no issues. Battery life has proven pretty true to spec. It is a little less bright after running it all day on high, but still very bright. Beam adjustment is great. Ive had it in heavy rain with no issues. Only drawback is that it is very slippery. Extra stipple or a slightly slicker surface would go a long way. It's easy to drop.Update: we have now had 10 or so of is usong these for field inspections at work for quite a while. They get dropped of lifts onto bare concrete amd regularly abised. They have all held up well.
I love this flashlight it is very bright and sturdy. But recently after usimg it for like 10 minutes it keep going into a slow strobe which i think was the low battery warning, but it does it even after having charged it for hours. I am not sure if something whent wrong with the light itself or if the battery went bad. Ive had it for a little over a year and i dnt use it too much so i tought it would last me more than that.Update: Flashin contacted me and sent me a replacement at no cost and didnt even have to go through the hassel of sending the old one back. You really can not get such great customer service from very many companies these days!
This flashlight is tremendous. It delivers very bright, very white light. I could do without the strobe and SOS features, but they are pretty standard on LED flashlights these days.I love the rechargeable battery. Remember to fully charge it before you need to use it or you’ll gripe about battery life.Read the users guide to learn how to get the flashlight to remember its previous setting. I was getting annoyed clicking through all the options and never seeming to get it to remember the “medium” brightness. My fault and it behaves just the way I want it to now. Evidently I can be taught.
Have not had the light long, so I cannot say for durability but first impressions were great. Anything I have bought from Flashin has been great so when I saw this light I quit looking at others. If you need a good flashlight for general purposes than this is the best light for the money. The build quality is great for the price, it looks like a more expensive light (tactical), and the removable 18650 battery is great because it can be replaced when it no longer holds a charge. This light is very bright and is great to have around. I have already recommended it to 3 people in less than a week. If you are looking for a flashing that is bright and rechargeable than this is the best bang for buck.
Awesome flashlight! I need a very bright flashlight for my job while pre-flighting airplanes at night. This does the job perfectly and at a great price!I like how you can switch between different brightness levels fairly easy; turn off then half click button to cycle through (high, medium, low, strobe, SOS). I have found it inadvertantly cycling to the different functions though which can be annoying to get it back to the one you want.Build quality seems fantastic which has come to be expected from Flashin. It just has that solid, high quality feel to it. I also like how it uses a standard rechargeable Li-ion battery and easily replaceable if needed.I expect this to last quite a while but if I need to ever get another one, I wouldn't hesitate to buy this again as opposed to a $150 Surfire or streamlight where you're just paying for the name brand. They use the same LED and batteries.
This flashlight is the best. I have charged it once at this point and have yet to need to charge again since purchase. This is with nightly use to watch my dogs in the backyard at night and my 3 year old playing around. Very durable material and I love the versatility of being able to adjust the light aperture. You can not go wrong with this and I look forward to using it for camping, electricity outages, etc. Would also make for a great flashlight for evening delivery people to see addresses, which is difficult. The beam shines very bright and very far.
I totally dig this flashlight, it’s very bright for its size and it just overall has a terrific build quality. I ordered 5 to replace all the hand held lights we have with these due to this light also coming with a rechargeable battery. One light wouldn’t focus, probably just a bad collar from the factory where it was assembled. Flashin customer service immediately took action and remedied the situation. Great customer support, terrific product, I will make sure to look out specifically for more products from Flashin going forward.
Very bright and once one gets acustommed to the 5 modes it is easy, and nice that it holds the last mode. Another quality product by Flashin. I was a bit skeptical about the 900 lumen rating at the price point of $22, but it didn't disappoint, and the focus feature is useful, it helped me tu find a large stray dog stalking me in a very dark night in woods at about 40 yards, lit him up like the sun. Low and Medium are perfect for normal uses when you don't need to blind everything. Brighter than the FENIX 750. Flashin is headed in the right direction and I will continue to buy their lights, bluetooth headphones, USB CABLES and more!

Ok I'm not one for writing reviews but I differently read reviews prior to buying products and it has help me make educated choices in the past and this light was no different so I hope this helps you too. I purchased this light to keep in my truck so I always have a light that is charged and ready for use. (I leave it plug into the USB port all the time) I had to use the light for the first time in an emergency situation that lasted about 5 hours in the back county where it was very dark.... this light was awesome!!! very bright and lightweight easy to hold on to and battery lasted during the whole ordeal....can't say that about my $100 Stream light Stinger that I also had and was using too. I was so impressed with this light I have purchased a second one to put in my other vehicle. the only Con.. is changing setting on the light takes some getting use to but try it a few times and it gets easier, it does have a memory of the last setting and goes back to that each time its turn on I like that aspect. For the money I am very impressed and would recommend this light.
This is a relatively small flashlight with one rechargeable battery. The light produced is very bright and surpasses the light produced by another flashlight we own that we have been very happy with. Have only used this new flashlight a few times, so far, but the battery shows no sign of getting weak yet. Time will tell how long it lasts. It charges by unscrewing the cap on the handle and plugging it into to a USB charging port with an included wire. This was a gift for my wife and she is very pleased with it.

Very bright and very well made. I should have purchased more!I was skeptical of it being a rechargeable flashlight (requiring recharging via a micro-USB connection. However, it lasts quite a long time and takes only a couple of hours to recharge to 100% using a USB outlet or via my laptop. I also have a solar charger which charges this while I'm out on hikes/backpacking. Works great! The adjustable focus beam is very smooth and works well. This isn't a pocket-sized flashlight. It is quite large, but isn't as big as a D-cell Maglite.
I love Flashin products and this flashlight is no exception. It's very bright and the battery life is great. It will sit for days or weeks before I need to use it but it is just as bright as when I first charged it. This is my second purchase of this flashlight and this one seems to be slightly different than the first but the same great quality.
Just wonderful. I've had this flashlight for about three weeks, so far it's doing great. I use this twice a day, early morning and late evening, for a total of about an hourwhile walking my dog. Before using this rechargeable flashlight I was spending a tidy sum on disposable batteries. Not anymore! I recharge the unit about every 5-6 days. The light is very bright, just what I wanted. If this unit lasts 6 months it will still be far cheaper than buying batteries.
Very bright and easy to use flashlight for the price. I ordered 2 and one was missing the battery. I received a replacement flashlight the very next day and Flashin followed up to make sure both were working properly. The customer service was excellent. I have purchased multiple Flashin products and been very happy with them all. This is the first time I had any kind of issue and was impressed by how quickly it was rectified.
Super bright when focused to a spot, but does get a little dispersed when you make it focus out. Still very bright and for the price with this being rechargable (you will save so much money on batteries!) you can't beat it from Flashin - who I trust because I have many of their other products. The support is great too as I have had to have a product warrantied once under their 18 month warranty with no questions asked! Another great product.
I've been using this light every night for over a month now, it is very bright and reliable, I love that it is USB rechargeable, I live on 4+ acres and use this light every night to make sure there is nothing on the property to tangle with my dog when he goes out, I also am very happy with the Gearlight S2000 and find the Flashin and Gearlight very similar as far as light output, but I love that the Flashin is USB rechargeable and saves me a lot on batteries, I would not hesitate to buy another Flashin flashlight.
Fred from Tallahassee
Just received this flashlight a few days ago so I have only used it for 15 minutes so far. My limited impression so far:1. It is nice looking and feels pretty good in my hand. The weight evenly distributed and well balanced.2. I like the button feel and the functionality of putting it into Strobe, SOS, Blinking, and standard on is pretty intuitive.3. It is very bright. The throw on it is really impressive even when the focus is set to cast a large halo.4. I like the way the end cap is separate from the cap holding the battery in place and containing the charging port. I was able to stand the flashlight up on its bezel and plug the micro USB in easily.So far it seems like a very nice and well made flashlight for the price. I may update this review later once I have had a chance to test it more thoroughly.
Awesome! This is just like any other item I order from Flashin in quality and specifications. It is very bright, well built, I love the rechargeable functionality, and the size is just right. I carry it with me on the outside of my travel backpack on my business travels (airplanes, hotels, rental cars, etc.) and I use it all of the time.The adjustable zoom is awesome and I don't have to worry about weather or water. I haven't had a chance to test the length of the use before recharge yet but I am confident it will not be an issue (you unscrew the end cap and insert the micro USB cable for recharge). In my opinion, another great product from Flashin.
I’ve come to really enjoy Flashin products and this flashlight stands up to the quality I’ve come to expect from them. Bought this to use for work because I was tired of replacing batteries every week in the cheap flashlight they provided. I love that it’s rechargeable and the battery life is excellent. On many occasions I’ve been working under a sink or in a tight space and had to go find a tool or part and left this on while I’m gone and yet it’s still as bright every single time. Even with heavy use I still only need to charge it maybe once a week. It’s very bright compared to other flashlights I’ve used. A coworker at my last job even commented that it was brighter than a $120 light he bought and used all the time. As for durability I have no complaints. I knock this thing around on daily basis and have yet to do any damage to it. Honestly one of the best tools in my tool bag.

Amazing metal build quality. zoomable, rechargeable, and waterproof, what else do you need. Very bright. One thing about this flashlight that really stood out for me was the way it is recharged. You just unscrew the top cap where the button is and plug in the cable. Charges like a phone. Other rechargeable flash lights come with a standalone charger so you must remove the battery from the flashlight and place it in a charging cradle. Has a bright LED where charging port is turns red while charging and green when done.
Wow! This is an awesome flashlight. I’ve bought several rechargeable flashlights in the past similar in price to the Flashin, but none have been near as good of quality and functionality of the Flashin. On/Off switch is intuitive,well placed, and easy to use. Charging is an easy process and the flashlight holds it charge for a long time. This flashlight is VERY BRIGHT and stays bright for a long time after a full charge. This is a MUST BUY if you’re looking for any type of flashlight. I love, love, love it!!!!!
Very bright, nice features. The medium and dim settings are bright enough for most of my needs. I haven't run one of them down yet, so I don't know the actual run-time. Recharging is easy. And I like that they come on at the same setting that I last used. I've had other flashlights that always start on high
I'm a service tech and it's very important to have a flashlight on me at all times. Very bright and long lasting. I have Flashin power banks and have always trusted that company for battery-oriented items. Once I saw they had a rechargeable flashlight, and at a reasonable price, I quickly got one. I WILL buy another one, when needed.
Derek J. Nadeau
Seems like great quality and it's very bright. I do wish you could access the USB port for recharging without having to unscrew the cap, but so far battery life has been very long and recharging is not something I've had to do very often.
Purchased primarily due to the easy to find 18650 cell, great battery life, easy to charge, protected cell, very bright, multi modes are nice, stays cool.I kinda wish they had different color lenses for it, but it's just about as easy to get custom ones made.
Great Flashlight, and very bright. My only complaint would be that when you set the focus tight it does give you a good spot beam, but there is too much light still casting a wide flood pattern. Don't get me wrong, it is a great flashlight and I love it, but I have cheap less bright LED flashlights that will focus a much more refined spot beam. It would be nice if there was a different way to plug it in to recharge, like maybe a base or something, so that you didn't have to partially dissemble it to charge.
So far so good. Very bright, and good features. Not too heavy and has a solid feel. Good customer service. The only minor complaint is that the instructions are not readable with the naked eye. Need a good magnifying glass as they are TINY!
I have purchased many Flashin products and I am always very happy with them. Their packaging reminds me of Apple, very nice. The quality of their products is very high too. This flashlight is about as good as it gets. Very bright, rechargeable, not very large or heavy. I highly recommend it.
Great price. Very bright. Pull and push zoom. It's hard to find a flashlight with a simple on/off button that doesn't force you to cycle through all the modes just to turn it off. With this flashlight you press the button once to turn on and off. You double click to change modes. The brightness is amazing for the size. I'm a cable tech. I've been through a bunch of flashlights and headlamps.
I love this flashlight. I’ve owned pelican, mag-lites, FENIX, and the rest of them at some point or another and I still jump to this little light above the rest. The light is very bright, feels robust in nature, and hasn’t failed me yet.My only gripe is that the 18650’s rattle a little inside the case. I assume I misplaced a spacer at some point, but I’ve found a notecard does the trick.
I've waited a year to post this review. I use this light ALL the time. It's worth every penny. Love this light. Small and very bright. Top quality. Solidly built. You can read the description to see everything it does, which is a lot!! But the best thing is... I can just plug into a usb port to recharge it.
I already have enough flash lights
This flashlight is small but very bright. I loved that I have the option to focus the light to one spot or illuminate a whole room.I have not had it long enough to test the battery, I've had it for 2 weeks and used it here and there and its still as bright as it was after a full charge. Considering its made by Flashin I feel comfortable of the battery durability.
I'm surprised every cop in the country doesn't carry this flashlight. Compact and very bright with an adjustable beam. I'm a flashlight afficionado and will get at least 1 more.
I was looking for a rechargeable flash light for my boys. They are constantly asking for batteries. Found these and have been very pleased with them. The batteries last a good long time and they are easy to charge. They are also very bright.
The light is very bright as described. Lights up my whole backyard. It is sturdy and has good weight to it, so it’s not cheaply made. I love the convinience of the built in charger. The only issue I have is that the on/off switch is not very responsive to just a simple click. I think the rubber cap end is pretty thick so it takes a little more effort to turn it on, and I don’t like cycling through 3 options if you over shoot the standard flashlight beam. It’s no big deal though. If you need a compact, bright light I would recommend.
Very bright flashlight, with some nice features. And cheaper than a competitor’s flashlight that I’d previously bought. Recommended. I’ve generally been pleased with the quality of Flashin products. I also have purchased several power banks and other Flashin items.
Haven't used it much yet so I can't speak to the durability. BUT, right out of the box this light is AMAZING. Having been a cop for 24 years, it takes a VERY BRIGHT light to impress me, and this is the brightest small-size handheld light I've ever seen. I'm truly astounded. It's a little inconvenient to unscrew the tail switch to charge the light (my on-duty light has a side-access charging port) but for the money it's absolutely incredible. Hope it lasts well....
Hard to find a good flashlight, glad I finally did! The zoom is a great feature. Very bright. Absolutely blinds people so just be cautious. The lanyard was crappy and broke first day - I just used some old paracord as a replacement, good to go!
Only had this a couple of months, but the light is very bright, and covers a wide area. Charges well, havnt gotten to see how long it holds the charge though. Ive always been pleased with Flashin products
Great, durable and very bright flashlight. Worth every penny. I see about 4% of customers complaining but if you write to Flashindirect within the first 12 months, they will send you a brand new item. So don’t get caught up with the reviews, the customer service is pretty good at Flashin I must say. Good product and good customer support hands down.
As usual Flashin has provided a fantastic product. This flashlight has proven to be well constructed and well-thought. I love that it comes with chargeable batteries that can be charged with usb. It is very bright and durable. Nothing bad to say about any of the Flashin products I've purchased, and I've purchased products from across their product range. Fantastic private company, I'd own shares in the company if I could. Thanks again and keep it up.
GREAT flashlight. very bright for indoor & outdoor use, multiple brightness settings & a less useful but entertaining SOS" & strobe modes.rechargeable battery is a plus
I use this flashlight for work and recreation. It sits in my tool belt most days and endures dropping and rain like a champ. The light is very bright so much so that you don’t want to point it in anyone’s eyes. I dunked it under water a few times while wading in a creek and though it got a little water inside it still operated fine. It was easy to take apart to clean the water out. The flashlight recharged on USB— same connector as an android phone.
Very bright and sturdy, have not needed to use it yet but testing it, it seems to be very bright and compact. Just wish it had a battery charge indicator, don't like having to guess how much charge is left of if it needs to charge. i bought this for work and emergencies.
Nice and compact, very bright and being rechargeable is even better. Having an Flashin battery charging pack makes it a worthy purchase. Good construction and the zoom feature is a nice touch.
This flashlight is by far the best we've ever had. It is very bright. Rechargeable is definitely a perk. It shines a great distance. Not very heavy. Worth every penny!!
Great flashlight! Perfect for riding my electric longboard at night. It lights up to 30 feet in front of me which is necessary to ride when there are no street lights. I like how you can change the concentration of light to cover a wider are or be very bright in a smaller radius. Super useful and very durable!
I use to follow my dogs at night. Very bright. Has distance. Light weight. And small. Really good beam of light.
For the money you can't go wrong with this flashlight. I absolutely love almost all of the Flashin products I have tried and I have used a lot of them. The quality is good and the value even better. This is a very bright light light that holds a charge for a long time and is easy to charge when you need to. You can't go wrong with this flashlight!

Love it so far. I had Streamlight flashlight before, which was great, but very expensive, so i can compare what is good tactical flashlight. I think Flashin did good job with this one and the price is right. Beam is very bright, gives good distance, can be adjusted from spot to flood. I like the color of the light, little bit more blueish, probably 5000-6000K. I definitely recommend and i would buy again.
Very bright, charges with a usual phone charger. The strap broke the first day and i dropped it on the concrete, but it still works great. Wish the company would have spend a few extra cents to buy better straps, but the flashlight itself is amazing and deserves the 5 stars.
I really like this light. This is the second one I bought. Good battery, charges well, very bright, and lasts a long time. Flashin make great products.
Great product. Metal body, is perfect for carrying in rear jeans packet, body is smooth so doesn't get tangled in Jean's fabric, yet is heavy duty, compact, and very bright. Plus is rechargeable.Highly recommended A+++
Have had this one for a few weeks and it ticks all the boxes, albeit quality and fit is not top notch, however, given the price it’s hardly anything to complain about. Light is very bright and good focus that is not too narrow and opens up quite wide. Light is also less blue than some other cree knock offs. All in all it’s a great flashlight but only time will tell regarding reliability.
This light is very bright and lasts a long time. The size is reasonable compact and easy to carry and use.Only down side is the button on the end is pretty stiff. I would buy again, however.
Flashlight is very bright. It also charges from a Micro USB cable, so most people will have the correct cable already. If you don't, that's OK - there is a cable included in the package. The aluminum case feels very sturdy.
Nice light, keeping it. I like the USB charge a lot. Very bright too, focusing is pretty good, some of them really don't focus the light well at all.
Was hard to figure out at first how to put it together but then I got it charged and it is very bright and I think worth the money.
Bought this on a lightning deal and not disappointed at all. Very bright. Many different strobe light settings. Worth every penny.
This flashlight is very easy to assemble and use. The flashlight battery is charged using the included USB cable. The light function selection is reasonably easy by using the correct pressure on the top button. The flashlight is very bright when zoomed out to its narrowest diameter beam. This flashlight should satisfy almost all home, car and camping activities, and the price is very competitive.
Very bright flashlight! Charges quickly. High quality construction with nice anodized finish.
Very bright. Exceeded my expectations. I was a bit skeptical but I’m happy I bought it. My brother has a $150 flash light and we compared them. This light was just about the same brightness.
It's the best flashlight I owed so far!It's light weight and very bright. Rechargable battery makes a huge difference since I use it a few hours a day.
Great flash light, very bright. Overkill for walking dog, very well built can handle drops. Can also serve well in tactical situations as well. It does have different light settings, strobe and SOS. I just keep it on high all the time. It lights up the area great.
This flashlight is reminiscent of my previous ownership of Brinkman incandescent flashlights. High quality, very bright and feels substantial in your hand. I have only had it for one day but definately pleased with this product.
It's a very bright light and I like the charging cap I dropped it in a pool and it works like brand new
Great little light if light. I’ve bought 2 of these for different properties. Very bright light and holds a charge for a Lon while.
Very bright and compact design helped me on my hunt in total darkness. This flashlight alone lit up the mountain pathway for me and my hunt partner to make the hike to our vehicle in the cold snow
The product is very bright and well made. I highly recommend it. I initially had a problem but they graciously replaced it.
I bought this day and it works well very bright. The wrist laynard broke off and the flash light hit the ground unexpectedly nevertheless still going strong. Great battery life i think ive charged it two or three times maybe four at most. It takes a bit to break in the button to switch modes correctly. With regular use you should have no problems.
I use this to do pre/post flight inspections on airliners and it’s the perfect tool for the job. Very bright, and the zoom feature lets me focus light up at leading edge surfaces up high, and then transition to wide and/or closer areas instantly. I’m able to operate the zoom and hold the flashlight with one hand which is perfect. Although, I ordered another one of these for my wife and the zoom is quite a bit stiffer than mine. It’s also great to be able to recharge the battery with a simple micro usb cord instead of worrying about having alkalines in hand, spares etc. Overall I’m very happy with this flashlight and hope it lasts a long time. It does seem quite durable.
This is not a pocket flashlight, but with that downside, you have a VERY bright light with the convenience of recharging. I have a bit of a problem buying too many flashlights, and when I saw this one on sale, I jumped and am glad that I did.The housing seems strong and durable, and the switch has a good, solid feel to it. Where it shines (sorry), is the brightness, which is excellent and exceeds most other lights that I have. I doubt that it's comparable to high end brands like Surefire, but when you consider the cost, you could probably have ten of these for the cost of one high end light. For occasional use to light up the backyard or take on a weekend camping trip, it's a very good option.
Amazing flashlight. I have been using MagLites for years as I always hear people saying how great they are or read reviews about them being the best flashlights and I just didn't get it. Those flashlights are humongous and I was having to change out the D batteries regularly. Even when they were brand new the light wasn't very bright. I live in Southern California (coyote country) and often have to take my dog out or for walks when its dark out. This flashlight is so bright I haven't had a single coyote get remotely close to me or my dog and I don't have to worry about whats in the dark spots on the other side of the street because everything is visible. Its so small that its significantly easier to carry around and I love the no batteries/usb charging thing. I am on the computer quite a bit which makes charging a breeze and even if I'm not I can plug it into my iphone charger. Great product.
Full disclosure - I received this as a gift from Flashin as I had purchased another of their flashlights previously, as well as many other products from the same company - so you could say that loyalty begets loyalty perhaps.So, while I believe this to be a good company, with well priced, quality products from my experience, this review is not influenced by that, but is about the flashlight only.The good - compact, very bright, good battery life, easy to use, fits in my carry-on / briefcase as an emergency item when travelling, and seems sturdy and well built - I have dropped it onto hard flooring once, and it left a mark on the floor, but the item undamaged.It is a little fiddly to get to the charging point, but I don't see this as a huge issue, considering it only needs to be charged infrequently, and it's fiddly because it is also well sealed against weather, dirt ingress etc., so not really a drawback, but maybe as expected.Overall very satisfied with the product and would buy again for both myself and others.
The light is very bright, with a decent UI. I like that it remembers what setting it was last on, but I'd love it if there was also a shortcut to the strobe, or to high". E.G. double tap to go straight to High
I bought it on Oct 22, 2018 for riding my bike at night. It served me well for the few weeks of near daily use. Very bright and long lasting
Very bright. The selection switch is a very difficult. The wire on the cap for the charging port appears flimsy.UPDATE 10/05/18 I recently reviewed this flashlight,shortly afterwards I was contacted by Flashin’s customer service representative. I was given instruction on the operation and function. I at first thought that it was just a follow up. The representative then apologized because I was not ecstatic about their product.Due to my review. I Was asked if I would like another flashlight. I thought that they wanted to exchange it for another one,however I was told that they were sending me another light,free.I didn’t mind.I was not asked to do anything.I’m an avid Flashin fan,I really like most of their engineering,materials,battery charge time,and how long the charge lasts, and functions along with their ability to handle rough use. This company’s customer service is AWESOME! I was not asked to change anything,however I’ve given two more stars for CUSTOMER SERVICE.
I'm an urban explorer and a proud Search & Rescue Volunteer. This flashlight is awesome and very bright. I have dropped it a couple of times and it was just fine. I have also used it in freak rain storm and it works just fine even though it was soaked. Another thing I like about it, Is that the handle gets warm while using it and since it gets warm, it keeps my hands warm. During a Search & Rescue mission, the temperature dropped down to 30 degrees Fahrenheit and weren't supposed to be out that late so we were not prepared for cold. I used the flashlight to keep my hands warm by wrapping my palms around the lens. I love Flashin
I have purchased a couple of Flashin Bluetooth speakers and several sets of Flashin USB-C phone cables. My impression is that Flashin sells excellent tech gear at affordable prices. So when I went shopping for my first USB rechargeable flashlight, I thought I would give Flashin a chance. I am not disappointed. The little LED torch is super-bright, easy to focus, and easy to use. The beam is a bit wide, more like a flood than a spot, but when properly focused the bright spot in the center is -very- intense. I took a walk around the block late one night to test-drive the Flashin and the spot can reach waaayyy out! I have a 500 Lumen MagLite (very nice light BTW) and the Flashin is obviously brighter. It is also much more compact than the Maggie--it slips easily into my pants pocket. Build quality seems good. Recharging is quick & easy with a regular micro-USB phone cable. The price is right too. I really can't think of anything negative to say about it. If you are looking for a sturdy, cheap, compact, and very bright rechargeable torch--this one is a safe bet.
