I have to say in review, this little flashlight is pretty great overall. It has some impressive pros, such as being incredibly bright and having a long battery life. It also feels quite sturdy and looks nice if that matters to you.
There are a few nitpicks, however. The head does make some noise when moved around, but it’s not enough to impact my rating. Additionally, cycling through the different modes can be a bit tedious if you accidentally switch them.
On the downside, I strongly advise against relying on the included wrist strap to keep your flashlight secure. The hole in the flashlight that the strap goes through has sharp edges that will quickly chew through the strap, causing your flashlight to fall and potentially become damaged or lost. I learned this the hard way, as my own strap broke after just a month of light use. Thankfully, I was holding the flashlight when it happened, so it didn’t fall or get damaged. But it easily could have, so I definitely don’t trust the strap.
I think the manufacturer should consider rounding off the edges on the strap hole to prevent this from happening. However, if you’re more interested in the flashlight itself than the strap, this is a great buy, especially for the price. Just be careful not to shine it in your neighbors’ windows, as it is incredibly bright.

What is “900-lumen”?
900-lumen is a measurement of the total amount of visible light emitted by a light source, such as a flashlight. It indicates the brightness level of the light, with higher lumens indicating a brighter light. A 900-lumen flashlight, for example, is very bright and can provide a strong and clear beam of light, making it suitable for a range of activities, including camping, hiking, and outdoor work.
Is that good for a cheap flashlight?
It depends on what you consider a “cheap” flashlight. In general, a 900-lumen flashlight is considered to be quite bright and powerful, and you may expect to pay a higher price for a flashlight with this level of brightness. However, there are many affordable options available on the market that offer 900 lumens or more, so it is possible to find a reasonably priced flashlight with this level of brightness. Keep in mind that the quality and durability of the flashlight may also be factors to consider, and it’s important to choose a reliable and well-made flashlight that meets your needs and budget.
