$7 Rayovac Roughneck CREE XP-E Flashlight, 2D batteries (incl), Spot-to-Flood, Side Switch, Free ship (US)

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003D7LHMM?t=slicinc-20&tag=slicinc-20&...

(click for larger)

 

  • Adjustable spot to flood focus beam with a beam distance of 146 meters
  • Machined aluminum with rubber grips, large on and off switch [side switch], DC/DC regulated circuit
  • Lumens: 180 (high mode) and 80 (low mode); run time 4hours (high mode) and 11 hours (low mode)
  • Runs on 2D alkaline batteries (included);
  • Withstands a 15 foot drop test, IPX4 water resistant

Free shipping with $25 order (it's Amazon... buy toilet paper or something) or free 2 day shipping for Prime members (US). Prime is free if you have a .edu email address.

I'm going to see if I can find what LED is used in this. Will update....

EDIT: Apparently it's the same CREE XP-E used in the new 2D/3D Maglite: http://www.batteryjunction.com/rayovac-rnr2d-b.html. I guess this makes sense... since it basically is one.

EDIT: duh... says it on the packaging (picture added)

review from that other place

Just got two of these on sale for 9 bucks each and have to say for 9 bucks its a pretty sweet light. Big floody beam that is bright and white. Has two modes and pretty solid construction. The palstic head feels a bit cheap, especially when using the "adjustable head which is a bit of a joke really, but overall great for teh price. I looked in the head and the led seems to surprisingly well heatsinked, has a nice big metal heatisnk in there. Also has two modes and uses D batteries which I kinda like having. The battery spring is nice and stury and the switch feels sturdy. Only real complaint is that the optic isnt great and the beam is rather ringy. You can still snag it right now for 8.73 I believe, from a major online retailer that I won't mention, and I definitely reccomend it!

EDIT: deal off... it's $7 now Surprised

It doesn't give you prime shipping, but at the moment you can still get this price at Amazon's subsidiary Amazonsupply (which used to be smallparts.com).

I got mine today and ordered another . It's a great light for the money, but I do get free shipping so that makes a difference.

The beam pattern is not too bad, I am putting one in each car and forgetting about them so if the batteries leak and destroy it who cares.

I have a bunch of the tenergy NIMH D's so there is no leaking in lights anymore

Got mine today too and am happy with it. The rubber protection around the head, tail and along the body make this a perfect light for the kiddos. Everything about it feels very sturdy. Thinking about ordering some for the cars too and just leaving them in the packaging so I don't have to worry about battery leak lol.

Mine came today. Not a bad worklight, but the beam is ringy as heck. It's worth $10 as a knock-around, short-range light. It is not going to replace an L2 or even a Maglight.

The biggest thing to dislike about it?  #%$ *&@!  CLAMSHELL PACKAGING. JEEEeeeeez, I wonder how many people get cut or injured trying to take things like this light and batteries out of the clamshell. I HATE that stuff. Had to use a serrated knife to get through it, put a nick in the body of the light when I did it.

BTW, this $6 light is almost exactly the same size as a TK41, just little thicker body. Very comfortable to hold, especially with the rubberized inserts.

It is an XP-E with some sort of moving-aspheric that is part of the flood-to-throw mechanism.

Edit again...the throw on this light is not too bad. Puts a very cool white hotspot out about 150 feet pretty clearly.

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...

Or you can use one of those snap-off razor knives with the adjustable blade length . Just leave about 1/16 of the blade showing .
