Sorry they haven’t resolved your problem yet but my ‘Rubber 1-Watt Pocket LED Flashlights’ arrived today.
I was hoping for some highly visible (body colour) lights that could handle a small drop without being damaged or damaging what they were dropped on, not bothered about them being particularly powerful.
Maybe I was expecting too much considering the cheap price but I think Golden Gadgets describing them as rubber is stretching the truth a bit.
They are more like hard plastic with a peach skin finish and it does not feel like they will take much abuse before cracking.
The yellow colour is bright enough but the red bodied ones are quite a dark red so not as high-vis.
As other posters have said perhaps more for the kids.

 

Cheers,

Gary

I have the Romi version single mode and like it a lot......small compact and the clip is durable and stays on a thick belt.

With Darkness, there will always be Light.

I have a few of those Rubber 1-Watt Pocket LED Flashlight and just gave them to my niece and nephews and they absoluely love them.  One thing you don't want to do is to tighten it too much because the threads on one of mine broke-off from the body when I did it.  I fixed it with superglue but it's not the same.

I had a problem with them awhile back and was very frustrated by there poor response to trouble tickets and them making false promises that they don't keep. I did finally get satisfaction though by using the live chat feature. I would advise you to use the live chat as opposed to email or trouble tickets. Good luck

It looks great but after getting treated like crap by GoldenGadgets.com, I will never order from them again unless they make things right.  It's been almost 2 months now and still nothing.  GoldenGadgets.com is a worthless company to deal with and the sad thing is that it was because they owed me a measly $10. Pretty sad right?

I got so frustrated that I've given on them.  They can keep the $10 as customer severance pay.  I just won't buy anything from them anymore.  There's so many other e-stores out there that I can pick and choose who I want to buy from.  But most of the time I wait until I read about them here on BLF before I even think about buying.  My recent order from Popbuying.com came in a little over 1 week so I'll be a loyal customer to them.
