Very Well Built, But Obsolete

  • Summary: This flashlight brings back great memories, but it's great build isn't enough to make it a great buy. First, it doesn't take conventional rechargeable batteries, neither 18650 or RCR123A 3.7V. It takes only the standard CR123A and RCR123A 3.0V.

Inova X5 Spotlight Flashlight

  • Summary: I bought the flashlight as a gift for a paramedic. So after Christmas, and he uses it for awhile I'll let you know. However, out of all the flashlights out there, I chose this one. The price was right, on his job he can have gear go awry very quickly, and needs to be replaced.

I have no title

  • Summary: This flashlight is very solidly built and the craftsmanship is very good. But, and this is a very big but, it is not very bright. It has two setting a high and a low. The high setting is barely adequate and the low is worthless. As much as I want to like this flashlight it's too dim to be useful.

  • Excerpt: A truly beautiful design. Has quickly become my 'go to' light for indoor illumination. Bright clean flood has no distracting hot spot and suppresses shadows wonderfully, unlike more intense torches. This is a shining example of 'less is more.

  • Excerpt: Simple and robust LED light that utilizes 2 CR123 Lithium batteries. Pros- Small diameter, machined aluminum body, and not super bright. Works great for animal tracking in the dark, as the weaker flood really highlights the tracks/sign. Can be used to read with as the "splashback" is minimal.

  • Pros: Bright Light, Small Package, Fair Price

Good UV light for Field Work

  • Summary: I bought this LED UV FLashlight in order to search for scorpions as part of ecological research in Puerto Rico. The flashlight is small (I can fit two of them in the cell phone pock of my zip-off pants), has good battery life, and does a reasonably good job at illuminating the area.
  • Pros: Small, Powerfull, Good Battery Life
  • Cons: Too much visible light, can't use rechargeable batteries...
