Sounds interesting. Sterops lights are usually very expensive, so if this is a good one, it would seem to be a great deal.

 

The numbers from my light tests are always to be found here.

Interesting light, any guess which LED it uses, or how many lumens? Oops, Ok, it says 160 lumens in the title...

Curse you, another 18 bucks spent from PayPal...

Rats, finally sold my 2010 509hp Mustang...now I can buy more lights!

Sold the red one too! Now guess what I drive, doing my penance for 500 hp commuters...

Very interesting. As Don said before, it's an expensive light, don't know why this model is so cheap. Very interesting reflector with zooming capacities. BTW, seems XPC to meUndecided

It kinda looks like the Costco Techlite Lumen Master.

Agree, but it's just a star pic, not even they told the specs (they say CREE 160 lumens only)

I would stay far away. Looks like (as fishinfool said) another 'rebranded' version of the costco light. I bought a three pack for 15-19 bucks, and I regret it. Not very good lights. Hope they somehow improved this version!

Good find Fishing, it does look like the Costco pack that I returned to the store. I cant see any differences... anyone else? The returns desk lady said they got quite a few returns of that same SKU so apparently many others thought they weren't with the cost. I think they were $10 for 2 lights at Christmas. Not even worth a host mod IMO.
