I own both the QP2A and the QP2A-X, and the -X version is noticeably brighter, I would definitely spend the few extra bucks it takes to buy it.

My previous flashlight used to be a Surefire for which I paid over $250 back in 2004. While I love the Surefire light, I'm impressed at the quality of lights available today for a lot less money. The Foursevens lights I own are quality built, run off two easily available AA batteries (I use Enerloop rechargeables), are brighter than my old Xenon Surefire that ran on two CR123 batteries, and last longer.

The only thing I hate about the QP2A and the QP2A-X are the lanyard attachment rings, which are thin wire rings that you need to thread between a small hole and a larger hole in the side of the tail cap. (If you thread it over the rim of the tail cap, then you won't be able to stand the light up in a candle mode).

The ring is quite a contrast to the build quality of the lights. I am quite sure that it will unwind the first time I'll yank on the lanyard accidentally, and the light will detach. I think that a quality light like this should either have an integral lanyard attachment eyelet, or something much beefier than the wire ring provided.

I use flashlights heavily in industrial enviroment and farm. This is a great light, with many useful functions. I prefer the AA lights to CR123's because of the availability of the AA cells.

Nice and bright!!! A a mechanic I love this flashlight, It replaced my streamlight pro-tac that ate up those not so easy to find C123A batteries that are a bit pricey... This is brighter and AA batteries are much easier to find, much cheaper, and seem to last longer,,, (Found a good deal on a 144 pack here on Amazon) My only complaint is I can't set it down, aim it and use it as a work light while under a vehicle. That does reduce battery life greatly, plus it gets kinda hot when left on for too long. Although that has helped remind me to turn it off if my pocket starts feeling warm... Been dropped in oil, coolant, diesel, and probably more, dropped many times over and the only damage, aside from paint chips. is the pocket clip has gotten pretty stretched out and doesn't hold tight in my pocket anymore... Also going to try rechargeable batteries after my 144 pack runs out...

I've been using this flashlight for over a year now and It is a great flashlight. Goes through batteries fast when on the brightest setting but it's worth it. The ONLY issue I've had with this flashlight is that it flickers sometimes. It could just be mine but I'm overall happy with this product. I will buy another flashlight from FourSevens. I carry this flashlight everyday, and I don't think i'll buy another flashlight from a different brand.

I use this for backpacking as well as odd jobs around the house. I like the different options for light levels, and it always seems to put out as much light as I need. It grips well in the hand, has a good weight to it, and stores well. Other than that, it always turns on when I want it too, and turns off when I want it too… not sure what else to say, but I'm happy with my purchase.

I bought this flash light because I realized how poorly my existing flash lights performed. The amount of light generated from this is shocking when you compare it to my Mini Maglite. I choose this flash light because it takes two AA batteries just like my Mini Maglite- I didn't want to use a new type of battery. I've had no problems with it and plan to buy another in the near future.

I recently purchased the Foursevens QP2A-X flashlight after reading many positive reviews. I have an office job, so this light isn't heavily used in a work environment, but I do find myself using it all the time at home. When not using it for a specific task, it lives on my nightstand with the head 1/4-turn from fully tight, so the default mode when first turning on is moonlight, perfect for getting up in the middle of the night without disturbing anyone with a bright light.

Packaging is very nice, and so is the fact that it comes with so many accessories (holster, rubber hand grip, lanyard & split-ring, spare O-rings). I haven't used anything but the flashlight and included batteries, but the other items included are nice to have the options if you prefer any of them.

My only two potentially negative comments are... I have noticed a brief bright flash when initially turning the light on in moonlight mode, and its quick enough that I don't see it if I'm not paying full attention. It doesn't bother me at all, but just letting others know in case that could be a deal-breaker. Also, the tailswitch can be little hard to press without contorting my thumb a little bit (larger hands), since on this version it is recessed rather than proud of the tail bezel; I have to use the tip rather than pad of my thumb. I imagine the tacticle version with its proud tail switch would eliminate this issue, but I still like having the option to tail-stand the flashlight.

I have still been running on the supplied alkaline batteries that came with it, so I can't speak to run-times. Once those run out, I will switch over to eneloop rechargables.

Overall, great light, my first quality flashlight, and I think its definitely worth the price.

IMHO one of the best 2xAA lights for the money. Sturdy, bright and good accessories included. No more words required.

I've never carried a flashlight daily until I got this little gem. I never knew I'd need one until I had this on my belt for the last few months and it's worked flawlessly. Turns night into daylight, even brighter actually and lights up my whole backyard when I let my dog out so I can watch her.
Love the strobe, nice defensive tool to have at hand if you happen to be out walking at night and need something quick.
