The HD lights are cool, but will eat through batteries fast. I highly recommend checking out the Ozark Trail 1000 lumen work light at Walmart instead.

1. It's rechargeable (ignore the description, it's inaccurate as it was for the old version)
2. It's twice as bright, and has a low setting too.
3. It has a USB power port so can pull double duty as a power bank (4400mah capacity)

It does cost a bit more at ~$22, but you'll save the difference in batteries pretty quickly.

This deal is for handheld flashlights. Your suggestion is for a worklight.

Sure, they both provide light, but they are intended for very different purposes.

It's not? I guess I'll stop walking my dog with it and using it to light up dark spaces. Thanks for the tip!

Do they need a receipt or some type of proof of purchase?

Thanks!
Logically no because it's lifetime warranty

How 'bout using rechargeable batteries (like eneloops) and you won't have to worry about buying more batteries and eating through cash?

Also, what happens when the built in battery pack (on the Ozark) starts to die out...is it replaceable...and if so, at what cost?

And that light is nowhere near the same as the handheld...why would you even substitute one for the other? Confused And I have had Ozark trail stuff before, usually the quality is crappy, def. prefer the quality (and warranty) of Husky any day...

Lastly, there is two of these and only one of the Ozarks...does that not matter at all?

First, I already said the HD lights were great if you need two flashlights. I'm not bashing the deal in any way at all. If that's what you want go for it and enjoy.

Second, Eneloops aren't free - they're an upgrade, and you're going to be tying up four of them per light. 4 Eneloops = ~$10. The value is the same whether you have them or have to go buy more for this or the next thing because you're using the ones you had in this. So for comparison sake you're at $17.50 per HD light in that scenario.

Third, as per your question the batteries in it the Ozark are 18650s, so for me they're both replaceable and upgradeable. For others, maybe not so much. As for cost two 18650s = ~$10. Or buy the 3 yr extended warranty for $3. Or just buy a new light. For <$25 I'm not really concerned about longevity past 3 years.

But honestly man I don't care what you buy. I'm just sharing another idea for people interested in lights and looking for a brighter light and longer run time that also provides more utility. At the end of the day the purpose of both is to produce light from a handheld portable device and I've found that having a bright broad beam is way more useful for everything I do with the bonus of it being USB rechargeable, having a stand so I don't always have to hold it, and also having a USB port for powering a multitude of stuff. Other people seem to understand and appreciate knowing about it, so my post was for them - not you.

Actually, you never stated the "HD lights are great if you need two lights"...Unless that was in another thread. Second, you said "I recommend this instead". Instead to me means don't buy this, buy that. Not "buy this too", so yes you weren't sharing just to add, you were encouraging one over the other. To me, they are completely different in every way, so your suggestion was asinine. And please don't get so defensive, it's not very apathetic of you....

I was just looking at a 2400 lumens light at Sears for $33 with $30 back. I've never looked at these types of flashlights before, but it seems strange the one at Sears would by rated at such a greater lumens? Is there some sort of scam or deception as far as calling it a "2400" lumens when it really isn't that effective?

Two pack of 3000 lumen flashlights for $15: https://www.amazon.com/Military-L...B073VZZKK5

What is up with the ratings? Why buy a 500 lumen 2 pack when you can get a 3000 lumen 2 pack on Amazon for the same price?

I see, so you have to be careful on lumens claims. From Amazon reviews:

Quote from Amazon :
"I can only answer that by saying that I already had a 1000 lm flashlight, and with batteries fully charged on these two, as well as my old 1000 lm flashlight, these two were no brighter. So no, from what I can tell, they aren't anywhere near 3000 lm."
Wonderful...

You are comparing 2 handheld spotlights/flashlights to 1 COB worklight/flood light/area light that I suppose you could carry in your hand if you needed to but is designed to be set on a surface and illuminate a wide area.

I'm glad that you like your Ozark Trail work light, but the two options are designed for completely different uses.

500 lumens. Sure.
Agreed, I doubt the validity of that claim. It's possible mind you, just doubtful. I own a legit 1000 lumin flashlight and it is blindingly bright as in self defense bright

it's a bit brighter then the lux 320 that I got last year. so, about around 400ish. They are decent flashlights for their cost. the 8 AA batteries are worth $2 themselves so I paid about $7ish for each flashlight.

since these are energizer batteries and prone to leaking and ruining things, make sure you check your batteries at least once a month.
