Multipurpose flashlight with dual red LEDs and dual white LEDs, for a night vision protecting red light or regular white light, both easily controlled by a switch. A convenient control wheel allows you to adjust the brightness for a little less or more light. The casing is constructed with a durable plastic and includes a neck strap. Includes a standard 9 volt alkaline battery, which under normal usage will run for many hours. The total weight with the battery is only 4oz. Great for astronomy and aviation applications.

Would not buy againPros:
Long battery life,Adjustable Beam,LightweightCons: Comments:
This light was great while it work. However, it is cheaply made and not durable. The thumbwheel broke after about 1.5 years or so, which translates to maybe 30 hours of use. The light cannot function without a working thumbwheel.

Cheaply built & breaks quicklyPros: Cons: Comments:
I bought two of these and both quickly broke after a few nights of use. The thumbdial is a good idea for adjusting the brightness, but even when new it worked intermittently. It is very cheaply made. On one unit, the small screw holding the thumbdial wheel in place came loose and the thumbnail dropped into the body of the light. I had to take the light apart to reinstall it. Astronomy flashlights with adjustable brightness can be expensive. This is a low cost unit and I got the quality I paid for and worse.

Don't expect it to last or be very well built. Bought two and one didn't work out of the box. The switch is extremely flimsy as is the rest of the constructions. Switch area isn't sealed at all. You'll have to take then entire thing apart to replace the battery and needs a screwdriver.

Perfect for My NeedsPros:
Compact,Strong Construction,LightweightCons: Comments:
I really like the "LED Dual Beam" flash light. It's lanyard can be hung around the neck so it's always available. It's light enough to hold in the mouth, freeing both hands to do other tasks.
For this backyard astronomer, it was a great addition to astronomy accessories that aid in making a night of viewing a pleasure.
