My wife's grandmother has a halogen version still. Maybe I'll upgrade her to led for Christmas. All jokes aside does anyone actually still use these lights? 35 lumens? I'm going to go out on a limb and say a cell phone led flash is brighter. If you still do use these it looks like a killer deal, the battery alone is worth the price.

I bought a couple of these when they were $4.97.

35 lumens is not very bright and they are quite big. Put them in the donation pile.

I keep one in the basement as a "just incase" for natural disasters and your phone battery is low or want to save it for emergency. These come in handy when you expect it the least (esp. during Hurricane Sandy in the NJ area).

I understand the practicality of a light for storms and power outtages, I have a handful of 18650 batteries and power banks along with a couple of ultrafire flashlights. For this price you really can't complain but for $10 or less you can have a more compact and brighter light that would fit in a bag much easier if you needed to travel with it.

35 lumens doesn't cut it in my world. I like a 100 lumens ceiling bounce which lights up a room pretty decently while still giving decent runtime (in a 2-AA led light). A 35 lumens ceiling bounce would only be enough light to say you're not sitting in the dark. With 100 you might be able to play cards. I would save the $1.24 and put it towards a 2-AA light with multiple modes.

They are $1.18 at a store near me so I ordered 5 of them. The price and the runtime of 120 hours offset the poor 35 lumens output. I'll keep one or two and give the rest away to older relatives.

sometimes you dont need eye searing lumens... these are great for emergencies.. 120 hours of lighting is the trade off and it floats

Or maybe not. So someone from the Lowe's store called me about 20 minutes later and said despite their website showing that had 23 in stock that they really had none and their system says it isn't a stockable item (or something like that). Bummer...

Not so Brite!


I'm thinking being "battery included" makes this a hot deal. 6V monster battery lasting 120 hours.
