This is a 6-LED flashlight sold by Eddie Bauer; it comes in an almost all-aluminum body, has six 5mm white LEDs in its head arranged in a triangular formation, and uses two C cells held in the barrel to power those LEDs with.


To use this flashlight, install the included batteries first (see directly below), and then you can go to town.

Press the button on the barrel firmly until it clicks and then release it to turn the flashlight on.

Press and release the button the same way to turn the flashlight off.

There is no momentary or signalling mode available when the flashlight is off, but you can blink it while it is on by pressing the button more gently than you would for turning it off; press it and hold it BEFORE it clicks. If you don't mind the backward or reverse feeling of this, you can blink the flashlight this way if desired.

To change the batteries in this flashlight, unscrew and remove the tailcap, throw it in the crapper, and flush it away...O WAIT!!! YOU'LL NEED THAT!!! So just set it aside instead.

Tip the used cells out of the barrel and into your hand, and dispose of or recycle them as you see fit.

Insert two new C cells in the barrel, button-end (+) positive first, then screw the tailcap back on.
Aren't you glad you didn't flush away that tailcap now?

Battery life is advertised as being "up to 40 hours" on the package.

Current usage measures 87.9mA on my DMM's 400mA scale.
This equates to 14.65mA per LED.

This flashlight seems at least reasonably durable, in that it shouldn't just fall apart through normal use. I administered "The Smack Test" on it (ten whacks against the corner of a concrete stair; five against the side of the bezel and five against the bottom of the barrel near the tailcap), and found the expected damage. There is some minor gouging on the side of the bezel and barrel where it was struck. No optical or electrical malfunctions were detected.

This flashlight is splash- and weather-resistant at absolute minimum, but it is not submersible. So please try not to drop it in creeks, rivers, ponds, lakes, oceansides, docksides, puddles of Kodiak bear pee, slush piles, mud puddles, tubs, toilet bowls, cisterns, sinks, fishtanks, dog water dishes, or other places where water or water-like liquids might be found. A little rain or snow probably wouldn't hurt it though, so you need not be too concerned about using it in moderately bad weather.

If it fell in water and you suspect it got flooded, disassemble it as you would for a battery change, unscrew and remove the bezel (head), dump the water out of the barrel and bezel if necessary, and set the parts in a warm dry place for a day or so just to be sure it's completely dry inside before you reassemble and use it again.

If it fell into seawater or if somebody or something peed on it, douche all the parts out with fresh water before setting them out to dry. You don't want your flashlight to smell like seashells or urine when you go to use it next. Besides, salt (from seawater or piss) can't be very good for the insides.

There are a series of longitudinal rubber inserts in the barrel; these serve both to enhance the flashlight's appearance and to aid grip.

The light output is a very slightly bluish white; this tint is quite normal for 5mm white LEDs though and is nothing whatsoever to be concerned about.

Measures 67,700mcd on a Meterman LM631 light meter.
This is a little less intensity than I expected, but it isn't horrible and awful.

Product was made in China. A product's country of origin really does matter to some people, which is why I published it on this web page.
