So I do not have pricing or warranty information about this flashlight.




The Favourlite Super Tiger (the name reminds me of the early 1980s Stern Electronics coin-op arcade video game "Super Cobra"), model # ZF801LED, is a small light that has three white LEDs in the business-end, powered by three AAA cells in the body. A spring-loaded clip on the tail-end of the Super Tiger allows you to clip the light to a hat, coat collar, or any other appropriate location up to approximately 0.5" thick.

This is the marquee from a Stern Super Cobra upright:


It comes in a black and translucent blue plastic case.

VERY IMPORTANT!!! Four other flashlights are also named the Super Tiger. One uses three D cells and has nine LEDs in its business-end; another uses two AA cells and has four LEDs; another uses two AA cells and has an incandescent light bulb in it, and another uses three AA cells and has six LEDs. Please do not confuse them with this Super Tiger.


 SIZE



This flashlight comes almost ready to use right out of the package. You'll want to feed it the included AAA cells first (see below).
To actually remove the flashlight and batteries from the plastic package, easily cut open one side of the package with a pair of heavy-duty household scissors or use a knife or razor blade if scissors are not available.

Grasp the light by its barrel with one hand, and turn the bezel (head) clockwise (as if tightening it) to get light. Turn the bezel counterclockwise (as if loosening it) to not get light.

It comes equipped with a spring-loaded clip, which you can use to affix it to hats, coat collars, or any other handy object with a thickness of approximately 0.5" or less.



To change the batteries in this flashlight, turn the tailcap counterclockwise approximately 1/10th of a turn, pull it straight off, throw it to the ground, and stomp on it with spiked golf shoes...O WAIT!!! YOU'LL NEED THAT!!! So just set it aside instead. ;-)

Tip the battery carriage out of the body, and if necessary, remove and dispose of or recycle the three used AAA cells from it as you see fit.

Insert three new AAA cells in the carriage, orienting the flat-end (-) negative of each cell so the spring in the chamber for it in the battery carriage receives this end first.

When the battery carriage is full, orient it so the two copper contacts on it go in the flashlight barrel first. Insert the carriage into the barrel, turning it until it goes in.

Place the tailcap on the barrel, orienting it so the embossing near its edge is just to the right of the two lines marked on the barrel. Press down on it, and then turn it clockwise approximately 1/10th of a turn until it stops turning.
Aren't you glad you didn't stomp on that tailcap now? ;-)

Due to the way the flashlight is constructed, I am not able to obtain a current usage value.

The Super Cobra - er - Super Tiger is at least reasonably durable. I smacked it ten times (five against the bezel, and five against the tailcap) against a 30" steel rod, and did not cause any visible damage or cause the light to malfunction.

The Super Tiger is water-resistant, but it is not waterproof or submersible. When the tailcap and battery carriage were removed and that dreadful suction test was performed, some air leakage was detected. This wasn't a BIG leak, but air got through nonetheless.
So while foul weather or shallow-water landings probably won't kill it, please try not to drop it in creeks, rivers, ponds, lakes, oceansides, docksides, puddles of squirrel pee, slush piles, mud puddles, tubs, toilets, sinks, fishtanks, dog water dishes, or other places where water or water-like liquids might be found.

If it fell in deeper water and you suspect it got flooded, remove the tailcap, battery carriage, and batteries, 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 Super Tiger to smell like seaweed or piss when you go to use it next. Besides, salt (from seawater or potty) can't be very good for the insides.

The clip on the back end of the Super Tiger can be rotated a full 360, because it is mounted to the flashlight with a ball-and-socket joint.

Light has a very slight bluish tinge to it; but if you showed the beam to a group of people and then asked them what color it was, very certainly the vast majority of them would holler out "WHITE!".
