Crazy bright Tmart Zooming Pen Light under 7.00 WOW is it bright !

http://www.tmart.com/CREE-Q3-3W-210-Lumen-3-Mode-Mini-Focus-Flashlight-w...

Just a shout out about a super bright light for 7.00 !

listing says 3 mode but it is a 1 mode light.

This light is insanely bright, I just got it and put a 14500 trustfire flame in it.

This sucker is just insanely bright in zoom mode, 210 lumen?..that’s like saying a welding flash is 210 lumens.

In zoom mode it shows the exact LED die shape and will throw a strong beam 50-100 yards no problem, I was lighting up street signs like daylight at 200 yards.

I have some bright flashlights, but this thing for under 7.00 is just an insane spotlight bargain.

My usual initial test is to shine a flashlight in my eyes, well it passes that test, I’m still seeing LED shaped spots…I’ll never do that again !

Very good build quality, and ships from US.

I got my moneys worth playing with it for 20 minutes !

Slewflash ,

Yea, I guess I do.

But I never dreamed it would be a lazer beam blinder even better than bigger lights.

I have a Hugsby 3 mode and it is like a candle in comparison.

Best 6.25 I’ve ever spent !

I’m glad you like the light. I ordered the same from Tmart a few weeks ago when they had the price down below $4. The zoom mechanism was grinding a fair bit – a not uncommon problem with these lights, but easily fixed by replacing the metal c-ring with an o-ring and lubing it all up. I have to say I thought I was getting a bargain, but 6 for $2.98?!

That’s kind of like testing hammers by hitting your thumb, isn’t it? :bigsmile:

This thread title is a bit misleading. I was hoping to find something more along the lines of an O’Pen or a Preon Penlight. I don’t consider an SK68 anything close to those Sad

that’s ~0.50$ per piece!

no wonder i didn’t get it.

over here we refer to kasten (4×5 bottled) when buying beer.

6-packs are uncommon over here something for douches Wink

btw yeah the sipik sk68 is a great penlight. i have it in green color. like it.

You are a wag Mr Kreisler! Greetings from the land where minimum unit alcohol pricing is still on our Government’s agenda (5 or 6 pack) Smile
