These flashlights are just as many before me have said when you get a good one they are very bright - but my first one was a dud....that being said Thankfully CBC stands behind their products and were very nice and quick to respond to me when I sent an email stating the first one came and was completely dead. CBC gave me various options on how to fix the problem and I ended up opting to try another flashlight - which is nice & bright.
Everyone commented on how small these lights were, but when we turned them on, they were quite bright. They loved the carabiner clip. The only drawback was that the metal loop connecting the stronger carabiner clip to the flashlight itself was very weak and pulled off for a couple of my kids. It would be a five-star light if that loop was stronger.
