This flashlight is okay but I would have liked a more powerful beam. I live in a rural area and walk my dog at night. There are no lights on my country road and I cannot see where I am going so I asked for a flashlight with a powerful beam on my Christmas list this year. I received this flashlight and tried it out right away. It does give me light where I am walking but I would have liked a more powerful beam and a longer beam. I will keep it because it does meet the purpose of what I want but if I was buying it myself I would have chosen a different one.
