I have one anker flashlight and it's not terrible, but I don't really recommend it. There are much better budget options out there for around the same price, or just a smidge more. Lumintop, sofirn, wowtac to name a few.

Illumn.com is a great flashlight site and has a july 4th 25% off sale with code JULY4. Much better than this!

Don't waste your money...on a full charge it maintains peak brightness for all of 5 minutes before going very dim. Coast makes much better flashlights - you get what you pay for here

I'm genuinely curious, how exactly are these other flashlights you are suggesting better than the Anker flashlights? Are they noticeably brighter? Do they have significantly better battery life? Are they more durable? I own several different models of these Anker rechargeable LED flashlights and I love them. I think they are fantastic, and they are relatively affordable, so I find it hard to believe that there will be flashlights in the same price range that are markedly better then these. However, I am not very familiar with many other brands; so if you feel like replying and elaborating on this, I would appreciate it. And if you could give some specific recommendations/links about the other flashlights that you think might be better options, that would be great, so I could check out some other flashlights.

I have the Anker LC40, the LC90 single cell, and lots of Coast flashlights.

A simple review of the LC40:

LC40
Pros:
- really compact and small
- impressively bright
- battery lasts for a while
Cons:
- has no focus control.
- button the end cap can be easily pressed accidentally if in a bag or mixed with other stuff
- gets hot when run on max mode

Can someone actually offer a better flashlight at a comparable price?

If you already have 18650 batteries, Thorfire VG-10S is much better budget flashlight than this for about $17. It has low/mid/high, memory setting, and moonlight mode (along with emergency strobe but does not require cycling the button).

Pair this with either Panasonic, Samsung or NCR 18650 batteries. If you want to go cheap route on 18650 batteries, you can salvage them from laptop battery (it will be non protected but often can find Samsung 18650 battery from Dell laptop battery).

Thanks, currently $17 but there's a 20% click coupon bringing it down to $14.

I wrote a fairly lengthy review of the lc90 zooming flashlight when I got it and that light may have issues that are specific to it, but I found it didn't have a great beam profile, the spacing between brightness levels was not great, the tint was ok but not great, and it didn't have mode memory. The brightness was not quite as high as advertised. I don't think it's terrible honestly but I think you can do better.

For example, I just ordered this light: https://www.urlhasbeenblocked.com...rehouse=CN

It should be almost as bright as the LC90 2 cell, have much better tint, be much smaller, and it has mode memory which a 14500 cell. It has an orange peel reflector which is a preference but I personally prefer. The button is on the side which I kind of like. I also have a hunch it will just be a better quality light. Anker has very good customer service though, that's definitely in their favor. Also does not come with a battery, but that's like 4 bucks. NO built in charging either. So you could definitely make the argument that they aren't totally comparable price-wise. If you like flashlights though there is a good chance that you already have at least a charger.

Hope this helps!

Also check out illumn.com, they have a 25% off flashlights sale for the holiday with coupon code JULY4. Tons and tons of great lights there. Could probably get a nice nitecore or olight for a very similar price to the anker. I would suggest starting with the olights since they are total systems like the ankers (battery and charging included).

Sorry for the essay, I'm a bit passionate about flashlights.

Hey, I have not read your entire post yet, but I browsed through it and I wanted to say, thank you very much, for taking the time to reply and share such a detailed, thorough response. I, too, am passionate about flashlights; but I haven't ever taken the time to learn quite as much about them as you apparently have. Plus, I usually don't have nearly as much extra money as I'd like to have, so that prevents me from owning more flashlights than I already do. With that said, I appreciate you taking the time to reply and share some helpful information with me. And I plan on reading your entire post, after I post this reply. So, thanks, again, for the nice gesture.
