Bought this about a year ago and hasn't even shown a sign of failing. I'm in the electrical industry and use it almost daily. With the led bulb it rarely gets hot and it's tough as nails. Just the other day I dropped it off a 12 foot ladder and nothing happened light was still on after bouncing across the floor. Picked it up and went right back to work.

Amazing brightness in the night or day.
This single LED light has an amazing amount of light for just one LED. Most lights won't penetrate the darkness of night but this will. I was apprehensive about the lumen rating when I bought it but if you want a light that definitely will light up the night then get this light! A really great light. I definitely recommend this product.

Great Multi-Purpose Light
I just wanted a nice heavy duty flash light option and this one filled that need. It’s durable and heavy enough to stand up on its own for hands free use. Great product!

good light with 20v system
Got this in a combo/promotional deal. It works, but has a cheap feel. No beam focusing, just one setting

nice light but burnt out after 3 years of minimal
used for just over 3 years at home, not much use. I turned it on and it just started to smoke. I feel it should have lasted longer.
