This review is from: Sunwayman D40A Cree XM-L2 980 Lumens LED compact AA Flashlight
I didn't buy this from Amazon, but wish I did,as I paid over £25 more from a uk retailer and that was with a discount!
This is one of the recent generation of torches using AA batteries that can put out huge amounts of light and match torches powered by expensive lithium batteries. The torch runs best ( and of course is cheaper to run) on rechargeable nimh batteries but you can use standard alkalines.
The torch has a wide range of lighting levels from an ultra low moonlight mode to a high mode which can light up a dark lane for 100s of metres. I find having such a bright torch on narrow country lanes tends to makes cars slow down more. It also has multiple flashing and strobe modes which I don't use but could come in handy.
With 4 AA batteries inside, this is quite chunky in the hand but way smaller than the maglites of yesteryear and easily fits in a coat pocket or you can use the supplied belt holster. Build quality is excellent.
One of the best and most highly rated high output torches currently available and a great price here on Amazon.
