This is a 3-AA cell 4-LED flashlight that I was directed to by a Candlepower Forums member.

It comes in an all-plastic body, feeds from three AA cells, and has four white LEDs in its business-end to produce its light.


To use this flashlight, feed it first (see directly below). Turn the bezel (head) clockwise (as if tightening it) to turn the flashlight on. Turn the bezel counterclockwise (as if loosening it) to turn the flashlight back off.

There is no momentary or signalling mode available on this flashlight; please do not look for or expect to find one.

To change the batteries, unscrew and remove the bezel (head), and set it aside.

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

Slide three new AA cells in the barrel, flat-end (-) negative first, and screw the bezel back on. Unscrew the bezel slightly when your flashlight springs to life so you don't waste those brand spanken new batteries.

Unable to measure the current draw due to the way the flashlight is constructed.

The flashlight appears to be reasonably sturdy, even though it's made entirely out of plastic. Ordinary flashlight accidents should not be enough to do it in. I administered that terrible smack test on it (ten whacks against the corner of a concrete stair; five good whacks against the side of the tailcap and five good whacks against the side of the bezel), and surprisingly, found no damage whatsoever. No optical or electrical malfunctions were detected either.

The flashlight appears to be mildly weather- and splatter-resistant, but not waterproof or submersible. There are no O-rings on the barrel where the bezel screws over. So please try not to drop it in creeks, rivers, ponds, lakes, oceansides, docksides, puddles of rat 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, dump out the water 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 seaweed or potty when you go to use it next. Besides, salt (from seawater or piss) can't be very good for the insides.

The beam of light that comes out of this flashlight has a pleasant icy blue color and is free from artifacts, but is dimmer than I think it should be.

Measures 33,600mcd on a Meterman LM631 light meter.

Test unit was purchased on www.surpluscomputers.com on 04-27-05, and was received on the afternoon of 05-02-05.

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