I bought 20 of these exactly

I bought 20 of these exactly one month before xmas and they did arrive in time. I am sure there are many different vendors on Amazon. I think I got them for about $2.95? I put batteries in all of them before giving them to the kids and they all worked. I kept 4 of them and they dont show any signs of the switch breaking like some people have commented. I dont use them that much but my kids have played with a few of them and everyone knows that kids can tear stuff up with ease, they are still working. I think its a great cheap light that you dont have to worry about losing. Expect to see them being released with a 3 way (high-low-strobe) switch in a silver finish because the company that i bought them from sent me a sample of the new light. They didnt say how much it will sell for but i like the 3 way switch.

If you want the 3-mode light,

If you want the 3-mode light, you can get it here. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00E5Y5QH4/ref=oh_details_o00_s00_i03?i...

I wanted to try one out quick so I ordered through Best Fire since they are fulfilled by Amazon and I got it for $7.99 with free super saver shipping. It was delivered in about a week.

The 3 mode light does not have a memory so if you turn it off in High Mode, it comes on the next time in Low Mode...etc. No big deal as I just cycle through until I turn it off in Strobe Mode, then the next time is comes on in High Mode.

The 3-mode capability is in the circuit board that the LED is mounted to... not the actual switch. There are two different switches I've received... both orange but one is textured and relatively firm while the other is smooth and kinda loose. I put my preferred textured switch on the 3-mode since I'll be using that one more.

Honestly, the standard on-off version is a better buy for the price. The modes are kinda fun to play with but the light isn't really shockingly bright enough to make the strobe mode effective.

I also bought the lights at

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00547SCXG/ref=oh_details_o00_s00_i00?i...

and

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00934M9YO/ref=oh_details_o00_s00_i04?i...

from Bestfire. I received the exact same lights for these two orders. I really think that the light output is similar to this little one using a 14500 lithium battery and I prefer this small light with the option of AA battery backup instead of these that take 18500 batteries or two CR123 primaries.

Hope that helps!

** UPDATE **

The 3-Mode version of this light will always start in High mode if you wait an hour or so before turning it back on. Apparently, there is some residual current lurking in the circuitry that will simply advance to the next mode if you immediately turn it off then on.

Example: Turn it off in High Mode... it will turn back on in Low Mode. Turn off in Low Mode... it comes back on in Strobe Mode.

Disposable product. You're lucky to get 2-3 months of light use before the switch goes out. But that's the world we live in now right? I have 4, oops no 3.... the switch just went out on another one. Crap!

I'm sure these are sourced

I'm sure these are sourced according to whatever the lowest Chinest bidder is at any given time but I've had three of these for 6 months of fairly rigorous daily use with no issues whatsoever. I use a regular AA battery in one of them and 14500 lithium batteries in the other two.

Just for kicks... I tried a torture test on one of them today: I threw it at the side of my wooden shed as hard as possible a dozen times followed by dropping it on the concrete several hundred times from a height of seven feet. The thing still works! The switch is fine, the lense is uncracked and unscratched, and nothing rattles. The finish is a little beatup but I wouldn't expect anything to make it through that unscathed.

Don't expect premiere flashlight quality or light output here... but it is definitely worth a roll of the dice. I'll be buying another few. If you don't want to wait 6 weeks for the Chinese slow boat, buy ones that are shipping from the US or fulfilled by Amazon... you'll have them in a couple days for a buck or two more.

As said, Harbor Freight doesnt have any Cree based lights, just the cheap standard LED array lights which arent even comparable.

Harbor Freight doesn't sell any flashlights with a Cree LED... at least according to their websight. Do you have a part number?

If you bought LED array flashlights, there is no comparison to the Cree LED lights... even these cheap chinese ones.

I went on Amazon to take a look, saw another option for under 9$free ship you can order a light with 1600 lumens output. It uses a different battery(3v) search eBay 'lowest price' for rechargeable battery/ies go with highest MAH available, but since I already have these and a charger I bought for a similar light it's no problem but a lot more $ for my other light! you can cover with green cellophane and rubber band for night hunting if you do that.

Bought three of these on

Bought three of these on 4-7-13. They arrived today (4-22-13) even though the shipping notice said I would receive them the end of May. Great deal for six bucks. They have three modes including a strobe. They take one AA battery. I read on Amazon that if you buy these real expensive batteries they're 300 lumins. I don't need that from a six buck light. These are more than bright enough for emergencies.

Bought 2 of these back in

Bought 2 of these back in January. One in the gunsafe, one in the Jeep. For $6, its the best Mini-CREE value out there.

The fact that it accepts standard AA batteries is a big plus in my book. It may not be as hot as a Surefire, but it gets the job done better than a MagLight and you can buy 8 of these for the cost of a decent LED Mag.

Dont have any 14XXX batteries on hand to test luminosity with, but AAs work just fine.

I bought two of these a few

I bought two of these a few months back and they shipped from china. for what it is i think its a great backup light. i have it strapped to the shoulder strap of my hiking pack with a proven reliable light strapped to the side of the pack and the clip perfectly fits onto 1 molle band. good luck getting it off though. the clip is very hard to release, however i find it a good thing for my application.

people have to stop expecting something for nothing. facts is: its bright, inexpensive, has 3 modes, anti roll. it will probably fail at some point and will not stand up to $20-$30 lights. imagine that.

Even if the light is 1/2 as bright as advertised.....its a good deal compared to all the LED trash sold in stores.
I find it hard to believe its 300 lumens.....we'll see,
I bought 2 and a few 14500 batteries with charger.

LOL. Some peoples kids.

Did you pay less than $6 for your foursevens? I didn't think so.

I bought an amazing EagleTac D25LC2 Clicky that blows everyone away that I show it to. It's incredible. Over 700 lumens of intense durable light.. It makes $180 Surefire's look as limp and pathetic as the chumps that buy them.

Regardless, it cost $63 and is no where near the deal these cheap lights are. Plus if it's ever lost or broken, I'm out a 5 spot and change.

These inexpensive but effective little lights have many places, just not in comparison to units costing 10x or more their price.

Just the concept of that kind of comparison is stupid.

What happened to people? When did we become a society that would rather brag about being taken, than brag about getting a real deal?

I bought 2 of these. They were so great I bought a 3rd. They beat all of the other flashlights I own including a similar leatherman monarch 400 that also uses only 1 AA battery that I paid $40 for. Wish I had found this before the leatherman.

I received mine about a week

I received mine about a week ago.

Grade: B-

Summary: I think it's a decent mini torch, for a decent price. Because of it's low price, this torches lack of features are negated when it is used in its appropriate field: Best used in glovebox, center console, bedside, attached to home defense shotgun, in toolbox, junk drawer, in camp bag, etc.

Pros:
-Cost ($5.25)
-Size
-Adjustable focus
-Decent battery life

Cons:
-Belt clip was too tight. I loosened hastily with a screw driver bending the metal back a little bit too much. Could have used a thinner more elastic metal/build for the belt clip
-One mode. I was unsure if it would be one mode or not, as different comments may suggest they are all multi mode. Mine is not (received 10/11/12)
-Magnification lens is cheap material, and was covered with debris from the factory. Removed lens, cleaned, replaced. Feels like it will scratch and ultimately dim with use.

Just a quick update. It appears that these are newer revisions of this flashlight. My previous one purchased from TomTop had only one mode. Flashlights that I received from this Amazon seller have 3 modes, Hi, Lo and Strobe, pretty awesome and they cost less than from TomTop.

I just got mine too, $5.69 or so, took more than 20 days for delivery, but it is worth every penny. Just ordered some 14500 batteries, can't wait to get them and max out the 7W LED, should be at least 20%-30% brighter.
