This is an excellent light for medical exams. I tried a bunch and this one really had the best focused beam without being too diffuse at the ends or too bright to be annoying. I highly recommend it. My first lasted 4 years then the clip broke but the bulb is going strong. I'll bite and order another to replace just for that reason.

The usual price is $2.97, good price, but not really a deal.

Frontpage a couple months ago with 100TU
https://slickdeals.net/share/android_app/t/14079899

Personally don't think it's an amazing sale/value, but SD disagrees.
price trackers show its been this price (basically) for months.
180 day average price $3.05,
90 day average $3.02
so...saving a nickel. Frontpage here we come?


To the seemingly many that purchased last time- thoughts? Buying again/more?

The light is awful, it's not bright and pretty useless.

Since it a Ray-O-Vac product, I would expect some light leakage. Put in a Ray-O-Vac battery and that will leak too.

Check out budgetlightforum , you can get WAY better lights for the same price. I like the Meco AA, because runtime is a lot longer than with AAA, but if you must have AA get a hugsby or something. Nothing this cheap with a brand name will be a good light

Bought this recently, not worth the $3 in my opinion. You can get much better mag lights

Sure they are more expensive, but these lights are really nothing special. If you have a cellphone with a light, these things are much weaker than those.

I can't imagine any medical professional using a toy like this. The light output is abysmal and the the CRI has got to be horrible too. If you're really using this for exams, then you ought to do a bit of research and "invest" more than $3 for this type of tool.

Even for the average user, this kind of crap is worse than useless. People ought to see Rayovac as a reverse brand, something that conveys the absence of quality.

Actually I am a medical professional and use it every day. Some of the other penlights out there have too bright of a light or too wide of a beam. This is focused so as you check pupil constriction, the wide part of the light beam does not cause slower constriction. It is not too bright to be irritating. You don't need a super bright light for exams, but the focus of the beam helps the constriction happen as you are bringing the light over the pupil and not before.

I guess you only use it briefly, but LED lights are damaging for eyes, and skin(but I don't know how long and how strong it has to be to cause damage). I believe even using LED lightbulbs are damaging to good eye Health long-term

You might want to look into something better. All these cheap lights use a cheap emitter that's cold, non-uniform, and low CRI. Even the disposable ones that come in 6 packs are better. For checking pupils, it's probably not going to make a huge difference but a warmer is easier on the patient. The big advantage on a better light is higher CRI, which can make it a lot easier to see variations in color. Look for a Nichia 219 or Samsung LH351D emitter.

The Lumintop IPY365 is good. It starts in medium and requires 1 press to get to low.

The Nitecore MT06MD is widely considered one of the best. Plus, it starts out in low.

Umm... NO. This is 100% myth and really shouldn't be passed around as anything more than a joke.
