Nice flashlights... very solid. My purchase was a good one, and our old plastic "D" cell flashlights have now been recycled. We lost power, and were able to set this light on the table facing the ceiling, and opened the light to the "wide angle", and it lit up the whole room. The batteries charge in a reasonable amount of time, and the light itself is very durable. I worried a bit, being this light was less expensive then many others out there, but those worries left me as soon as I got it into my hands. Finally, a flashlight that will be there for us when we need it. I also keep some spare, charged batteries around, just in case. This was another purchase I can put on my "not a waste of money" list!

Fair Price Good Reviews Size & Weight of the Unit
My wife has a Prime Account and I (husband) purchased the flashlight. First off I did NOT get this for free to write a review. So with that in mind here is my take. I did a lot of research and read a number of reviews and decided on this unit. My decision was based on.
Size & Weight of the Unit.
Lumins (A tough call because verification when using is basically impossible for the common user)
Materials of Construction
Charger & Rechargeable Battery that came with the unit.
So I ordered the light, and I can honestly say it preformed as advertised. The light is bright, the adjustment from full field to focused is very good and the coverage distance out preforms any light I have previously owned. In the focused setting it easily reaches 150 to 200 yards.
Had a get together at our house and showed the light to friends, they were all pretty amazed and surprised at the low price point.
I will pick up a couple more as we live in a wooded area and when we let out the dogs we like to have a light at both doors.
First time buying a Netsun product and as a result I will definitely consider them for future products.
As always BTA-MALL Preformed as expected.

Good unit, Good price, Several quibbles
This flashlight is very solidly constructed, and has O-ring water seals at both the battery cap end and the lens cap end. It is considerably brighter than the general-purpose LED model I had bought before, and will help to light up specific targets at a distance. All the modes are useful; bright is great, but dimmer will save battery life; strobe works for cyclists; SOS would help in an emergency. The unit indeed makes you cycle through all of these each time you use it, an inconvenience. There seems to be no way to change this, except to cycle to the previous mode to the one you want before shutting down. Zooming all the way in shows the LED chip in clear focus; it is much more useful to zoom back a bit to get almost as tight a beam with a uniform brightness.
The included charger works, and the fold-out AC prongs make a neater design than a brick & cable charger. The lights are a bit confusing, showing a flashing red for an undercharged battery (why flashing, is there an error?), a solid green for a charged battery, but also a faint green for a poorly-connected battery or no battery at all. The included 18650 battery fits the charger, but it is a bit difficult to insert, as it almost completely fills the charger, and the sliding contact has to be held completely extended during insertion. The battery as received did have enough charge to function, and was fully charged after 6 hours.
It comes in a handy and compact box with foam cutouts for the flashlight, charger, and a triple AAA battery holder which is useful as a power source if you haven't the time to charge the 18650.

So far a great product would be good for car or back pack
This little lite is so powerful Holy crap. Its smaller than my phone. I like that you can change it to flashing and other things for emergency situations.It comes with a rechargeable battery that you will need to fully charge and it does not take long. It does have an adapter so you can use just regular batteries if you like. It took mine about an hour and half to fully charge up. Its a good size for car or for keeping stashed in a drawer. I keep mine in the den for quick trips into the back yard at night and whenever the lights go out. It is heavy and feels very solid.
So far I love it.

This flashlight seems to be a gem. Nice, complete set with battery and charger. Also, the spacer tube is handy when using the lithium battery. Light temperature is nice-white instead of the ones with a bluish cast. Flashlight is bright, although, it is not a 1000 lumens light. But, everyone does this marketing hype... I am ordering a few more of these.

Great powerful, clear white light, for a very reasonable price.
Very bright and completely adjustable: easy zoom from narrow spot to wide (almost 100 degrees) angle.
It has a rubber covered but very easy to use on/off button on back end. My only issue is that it has 5 modes: two steady (low, medium, high power); two flashing (fast and slow). And you have to cycle all the way through to get back to the mode you want (usually steady High power).
There may be a way to avoid the flashy modes, but I haven't figured it out yet.

Excellent value for the money
Excellent value for the money. Sturdy case. The one thing that can be improved is the directions. There's a part inside the flashlight where the charged battery goes that serves no function. It looks as if a AAA battery could go inside it but I cannot find any way to open it. Nevertheless, once the lithium battery is charged, it takes the place of this non functional part, and this flashlight works very well. It has a nice strap that goes around your wrist and the light it gives off is great.

Sudden death while I was hiking at night!!
Seller contacted me and asked charge battery which first thing I did when I came back from hiking.
So seller offered me send another one and it arrived today.
It turned out, old one's battery is dead.
When I put new unit's battery to old one, it works perfectly. Try to charge the old battery with new charger all afternoon, it still won't work so I'm pretty sure old battery is officially dead. This battery could be their weakest link as I saw other reviewer complaints about.
I changed my review 1 star to 3 star because of seller's prompt reaction and if this battery still works at least some months, I'll change my review again.
Worked nicely and was bright. Unfortunately, it suddenly died tonight while I was out hiking at night in Canyonland N.P. Had to use cell phone flash for rest 1 mile.

My wife loves it - powerful but lightweight
Back when I bought this a little while ago, it cost $5.00 more.
My wife loves it - powerful but lightweight.
Asked her if she wanted a more powerful one like mine.
She said something about my offer and the sun not shining.
I guess she really does like it a lot.

Handy size and bright as day!
Only had it for a week, but I'm house-hunting and this is perfect for taking with and looking in corners for cracks in drywall, in basements for signs of damp, etc. It's fairly light and truly can light up an entire room when zoomed out and fairly narrow when zoomed all the way in. Has the rechargeable lithium ion and works just as well with three AAA batteries. Textured grip and loop for wrist makes it easier to keep hold of. Thus far, very happy. Time will tell how long it will last this well, but great thus far.
