Wel-Bilt Tactical Flashlight - 1 Watt
Seemed great at first, but then started working intermittently, flashing/flickering. Tried replacing batteries and making sure contacts are clean, but it didn't help. I'm guessing the problem lies in the battery cartridge that holds the 3 AAA. This at least doubles the number of connections, making this less reliable.
Overall quality & brightness are great, but if you want a reliable light - this is not it.

worked great the first day--after that, you have to tap it with your hand to get it to come on.

Started Strong, Faded Fast
I bought this flashlight just before Hurricane Irene hit Virginia. was a great flashlight during the storm when my power went out, it was very bright, etc. A month later the thing went intermittent on me out of nowhere and now it just won't turn on. Very disappointing.

I ordered one flashlight for myself. After using it, I ordered three more. It is lightweight, very durable, and SUPER bright. It's compact size is also a plus.

Very good flashlight, and the pricks on the bottom are a plus, they keep it from turing on accidentally when inside a bag, or suitcase. Nice bright beam, and it works well with normal or rechargeable batteries. Another plus is that it can sit on its switch without falling or turning off, if you need to get under a sink or something.

Great construction, and decent light output. I've had one in my car for the last several months and it's come in handy more than once. It feels really solid in your hand, I really think this one will stand the test of time.

Bought 2 at the same time...Thought if I ever needed a backup or lost one...well only a short time later...I needed a backup for the backup...continued having a short in connection...light would come on and then go off...tried batteries, even aluminum foil to increase connection...problem with both...didn't cost much but expected a bit more out of it, especially when both had very little use...If you buy 3 , maybe the third times a charm!

Very good flashlight
This light works great and is reasonably priced. I lost my other one and just ordered a new one. I don't use it for a tactical light, just as a regualr old flashlight, and it is very small/light weight, very bright, and very durable. I would recommend it to anyonw who wants a sturdy, compact flashlight.

Great flashlight for the price
Pros: Solid, well built not too heavy, has protection edges - solid
Cons: none if had been 2 watt would have been great value!
