If I remember correctly they have a lifetime warranty as well (except bulbs and batteries of course). I emailed them in the past about a bad switch for my Strion and they shipped me a new switch for free in 2 days.
I have a stinger and a streamlight as well, nothing but 100% satisfaction with both.

Anyone shopping for quality products at discount prices at do-it-yourself centers is only kidding themsleves.

Husky Rechargeable Flashlight


If you are looking for a very bright torch you should get a P7 emitter here is a link to one at deal extreme (modes remove if not allowed) http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.12623 This is not the P7 I have but this one has gotten good reviews on another forum I visit. The P7 claims 900 lumen's (low beam on car 700) but the people that are able to measure that kind of stuff claim it is around 600 or so. Still very bright. In addition to the light you will have to purchase 18650 batteries for it and a charger. Still the total cost should be under $60 when all said and done.

A Q5 emitter is also very bright 180 lumen's (claimed 220) and you can find them that use AA batteries. If you go AA purchase a good quality charger. Cheap chargers ruin the batteries in no time. Fenix is a very good brand, I have one and am very happy with it.

I do not want to disparage mag lights but they have not kept up with the current technology for very bright lights.

One word of warning about dealextreme, the ship from overseas (China) I think and sometimes it takes a while to get your product. I have used them many times without problems other than sometimes long shipping times. Free shipping too.

but Good n Cheap can.

High price does not ensure quality. That is the great thing about the internet; it is easy to do research.

I guess it depends on what you are looking to use it for. I love Mag Lite, I also love flashlights. I have on in the truck , one just outside the garage door, in the nite stand beside my bed, one in my tool bag and several others including in the camping equipment. Most are Mag lite, I have a few cheapy LED from HD but I dont complain cuz I know I got them cheap.

Invest a few bucks in a good flashlight and you will take better care of it.

Remember you get what you pay for.

Yes. You get what you paid for.
Especially in the area of geeks. Designers, producers and so close to the customers.

This is the P7 that I purchased It was $129 plus shipping. You can get much cheaper P7s under $60 that have good quality. This one was made in the good old USA that is why I decided to purchase it. I do not use this as much as I had hoped to when I purchased it; it turned out to be a little larger than I thought (about the size of a c cell flashlight.

The one I carry for every day use is this one

I paid about $60 for it and it is worth every penny. I have had both these flashlights for about a year now without a single problem from either.

I use both of these flashlights when riding my bike (bicycle) they work excellent for that.

go get yourself a "BatteryMaster" charger! then you can recharge ALKALINE batteries AND NiCads all day!
I can recharge eveready and duracell alkaline batteries about 20 times with it! bummer it won't do 9v, but for aaa, aa, c and d's
it works great!

I tried to both google and bing batterymasters; finally came up with a home page for their web site. Site is all but worthless, it did not have any data on any of their products. If you have a web site you could point me to so I can see the technical data I would appreciate it.

This is the one I use and have been very happy with, it does have a refresh option that reconditions your batteries over the course of a couple of days. It also gives you other options for charging rate. Will also give battery voltage and mA capacity,


Danger, you let out a little know secret that alkalines can be recharged (although not as well as other battery types) I would now be worried that someone from the battery company will come looking for you.

I have read on other forums that you can just make up a little "jumper" wire from the positive and negative side of your battery charge to a 9V clip and it will charge them.

I have not tried this myself; but do not see any reason why it would not work.

Maybe I will give it a try. It will most likely be a couple of weeks before I get around to it. I guess I will have to change the batteries in the smoke detectors a little early this year as that is the only thing that I use 9 Volt batteries in. Don't worry I will not put a rechargeable battery in a some detector.

I purchased one of these several years ago and have always had to charge it after only about ten minutes of use. I am not pleased with my purchase and would not advise anyone to purchase any husky flashlight...not what they claim to be...
