I don't know if anyone else has been looking at these, but I have been watching the market for some time now waiting on small powerful LED flashlights to become reasonably priced. I have had a couple small, cheap, weak ones, but wanted something to use where I normally have been using Maglites. I have several 3 D-cell Maglites around, and in my cars, but they are heavy, and take up space. The good Luxeon LED lights have been pretty expensive. Many of the smaller ones used CR123 Lithium cells, which are pretty expensive and not always available when you need them.
This evening I just happened to be in Sam's Club looking for something else, when I spied a display of small 3 AAA cell LED lights, carded two to a package for just over $24. Worth a shot thought I!
Oh Yeah!! Palm sized, use 3 AAA batteries, machined aluminum, and they put out more light than my 3 D cell Maglites! Much brighter white light, and the spot is very even, not with the rings and flares of the Maglites. Do Not look straight into them! If you do you will see spots for a while. At least that is what I heard.
Gonna go get some more, keep one in each car, and 3-4 around the house.
Sam's Club #906023, #24.38 per package of two.
