  • Very poorly engineered power on/off location only reason for 2 stars
This is a absolutely a great very bright flashlight with both red and green LEDs, along with white and flashing capability, it is very competitively priced and solidly built, which is why it pains me to give it two stars. I’m giving it two stars because the location of the power button is the absolute worst design flaw. It turns on by itself constantly in many situations. Anything from in my pocket not even touching it, in a bag, moving it from place to place. It also turns itself off when using it for the same reason. To function and qualify as a true tactical flashlight, I can not have it come on and off in the field whenever it sees fit. It has to be able to turn on and off ONLY when I need it to. Period. Otherwise I am exposed as a target when i don’t want yo be by accident, as well as potentially having the battery drained when I need it most. For this reason I can’t use it as a tactical flashlight. Period. Therefore the two star rating. Fix this one issue. Put it on the back of the light like so many others or a flip cover and you have got a winner here. ... show more

  • made in china
batteries supplied with the light were corroded and unusable. doesn't give me a good feel for the quality of the unit. The movement from 180 degrees to 90 degrees is very smooth and easy. In fact it is too easy as a casual touch can cause a shift in the light. If there was an index dimple at the 90 and 180 degree positions that would give a bit of security to the light direction it would help tremendously. on the positive piece a person with a weak or arthritic grip the easy movement from 90 to 180 degrees could serve them easily. ... show more

  • Side switch location not so great if bumped light will come on
Use is to hunt fish camp. Great size ,love the conversion to angle head. Not used to on off switch being on the side , seems hard to locate when you need it ( like in the dark). I have a 200 lumen light that seems brighter then this 250lumen,not sure why , maybee the 200 lumen led is a cree.Seems to be tough time will tell. ... show more

  • Not Bright
I have a few, and have gone through many flashlights of this size. Right out of the box I thought something was wrong, or that I was doing something wrong. Bottom line, even on the brightest setting, this light isn't nearly as bright as my other lights powered by 3 AAA's. The light also has a yellow tint. ... show more

  • Best flashlight I own!
Very durable, high grade housing, extremely bright, powerful magnet, and versatile angles to position light! This flashlight is well worth the money!!

  • Not much light and no UV
There is better options available there with brighter light and UV lights. Other than that it is Okay. UV light could become handy to detect car leaks. But this one does not have one. Certain things from Klein are overrated.

  • Bigger than anticipated
Originally purchased this to use at work. With the pivoting head and magnetic base it was going to work great for those hard to see dark places that required two hands to do the job. However the body was bigger in diameter than expected and did not fit my tool pouch, so I can't give an accurate review as I have not used it for it's original purpose and it is now in the drawer with the rest of the flashlights I own. ... show more

  • Poorly Designed Features
Weak beam, for a light of this size. Too big for EDC. On/Off button too easy to accidentally trigger in a bag or pocket. Swivel is too loose. Clip isn't tight enough. Magnet is the most practical feature. Guess it's going to be an emergency/power outage flashlight :/
