Cree 300Lumin flashlight $1.88US

Deal Link:
Price:
$1.88US
Retailer:
dd4.com
I did a post before about dd4.com and got some bad reviews about being a plant for them. Personally I just like a good deal, that's why I go on Red Flag, & on EBay I sort Items by the cheapest price. This flashlight is cheaper than anywhere else online. Cheaper than ******** (which everyone seems to love) and cheaper than Amazon. Unfortunately shipping isn't as quick as Amazon, but not much is.

Anyhow take a look, good flashlight for under $2.50 CND, if someone can beat that price please let me know.

I have one of these SK68 clones. At under $2 this is a great price, also has multiple modes if you need, altho it does not keep in memory which mode you used last.

Those are exactly worth what they're being sold for. Fine as a novelty/toy, junk for any other use.

Anyone have experience with these ebay flashlights?

How bright are they? I know the website said 5000 lumen, but that's probably VERY unrealistic

You can't beat the value. I don't have a way to measure but I have about 8 of them from 4 years ago, and they all still work and I keep them in drawers in case of a power failure. They are decently bright, the beam is not so wide to light up a whole room, but it's good for small home use. I will definitely buy a couple more now for the $0.99/pc one that someone linked above.

i prefer the single mode one. The strobe mode is really annoying and I never run into a situation where it is necessary

NB> These flashlights take an AA or a 14500. A 14500 is a lithium based rechargeable battery and is over twice the voltage of an AA. So, if you want to archive the max brightness for these flashlights, you will need a 14500.

Of course, there's no way that the flashlight does 5,000 Lm in the first place even with a 14500 battery but that's a completely different discussion.

I got one that was allegedly 500 lumens. It outputs less light than my light and motion bike light set to 75 lumens. It also doesn't have the circuitry necessary to keep the voltage/light output constant so as the battery empties, the light output decreases.

It's a toy, don't rely on it for anything remotely mission critical.

I've been using one for about 3 yrs now with the 14500 battery (I have 2 and rotate them) but always had a spare cree in my bag that I never had to pull out. I suppose it's ymmv like most things.

Yeah, for flashlights, they call it the "Chinese ebay lumen rating": claiming approximately ten times more lumens than the device actually delivers...

Agreed. I bought some of these that were 1 mode. then found a 3 mode that i thought would be awesome. the 3 mode one isn't all that useful anyways, unless you want a really dim light with high run time.
