    Default Want a GREAT led RECHARGEABLE Flashlight

    ADVERTISEMENT
    Looking for a high lumen (500+), multi mode, rechargeable LED flashlight.

    Anyone found a really good one? I tried a couple cheapies (Mastercraft and Rayovac) for $40-$60 and wasn't impressed. They're not bright enough and the batteries, though claiming to be good for 500+ and 750+ charges, performance start to noticeably suffer after just a dozen charges.

    I'm looking for something stellar, and willing to pay the $$$ for it.

    No need to pay big bucks, I bought 1 of these 3 years ago (they used to be $70)

    Every guy I hunt with has one now and guys I've only met once have asked me to order them one. The batteries they come with should be kept as spares as they are crap. Replace them with quality ones and you'll never look back. I have Tenergy and they are good for 4-5 hours easy.

    I don't think you'll find anything brighter in stores, I haven't. This is also durable, mine took 2 trips to the bottom of the lake, the only way I could find it was because the light kept shining.

    You won't regret the purchase....

    My son who works HVAC uses this one everyday. He also used it walking in out of the bush. I was blown away on how bright and long lasting it is. He bought it on Amazon.

    I don't have much experience in the 500+ lumens category, sorry. But, if you find something that works with AA or AAA batteries, I'd highly recommend Eneloop rechargeable NiMH batteries. Google their reviews. You can order them online from Costco without a membership and get free shipping. I've had great luck with them, and if you have a bunch charged up you never have to wait for something to recharge.

    Try this one from amazon.ca.....I know have 3 of them throughout the house and they are great for hunting & traveling...compact but VERY bright with different setting...had Fenix before but IMHO these are much better!

    M,
    There's lots of options out there. Will just give you my personal experience with 2 of them.

    1st has already been linked (Boruit). 300Sniper, glad yours works they are extremely bright. Many don't. They are cheap because they are they are cheaply made. Mine won't turn off unless I remove a battery, many other people have issues with the multi modes. 10 minutes googling them............I knew that ( its like a box of chocolates) going in, figured I roll the dice.

    2nd
    After giving up on the Boruit (got tired of putting the battery in/out to turn on/off) M I bought a genesis from Sail. No complaints, it works as advertised. Allowed me to pick up channel markers 200, 300,400 yards away when heading out to the duck blind in the dead of night.

    Too bad you got a lemon, I know 7 guys with one, I purchased all but one of them, there have been no issues at all over the past 2-3 years, that includes being submerged on several occasions for a few minutes....
