I like this XL50 flashlight very much. It is well made and functional.

This Maglite XL50 is a new sister of the older XL100. They are the same size and have some interchangeable parts. The older XL100 has more functions, and a lot of people say it has TOO many functions to the point of being complex. A complex flashlight? Maybe not something you need when you are half asleep at 2AM. So this XL50 is a nice pare down to what you need most.

This XL50 has a quick-click multifunction switch; this quick click to different modes actually seems to work very well (I was skeptical at first):
a) One click and it is on full, and that's what you'd use the most.
b) Two quick clicks and it is dim (25% full), logical that you'd use it next most often. This can be very nice. Sometimes the light is too bright at full and it glares off of surfaces you're trying to see clearly.
c) Three clicks and it is strobe. Strobe can be extremely obnoxious, but sometimes that is exactly what you want. Like when I'm walking in the dark and my crazy driving neighbor goes rocketing towards me, I can go to strobe mode to alert him that I'm walking on the side of the road (I shine it AWAY from him obviously).
d) You don't have to cycle through all the modes to turn it off. Whatever mode you're on, the next click (after about a half a second) will turn the light off.

a) Incredibly bright for its size (advertized at 104 or 139 lumens, depending what packaging it came in). It is brighter than the 2AA Maglite LED flashlight.
b) Uses 3 standard and easy to find AAA batteries.
c) The battery compartment is ingeniously labeled for + and - on each battery end, at the end of the compartment. Frustrating if you don't see it, but then voila!

Color Name: Black
I recently compared three compact LED flashlights available in the same price range: Maglite XL50-S3016, Rayovac Roughneck RNT3AAA-B and Mini-Maglite SP22017. Here are my findings:

Both Maglite XL50 and Rayovac Roughneck are powered by three AAA cells, while the Maglite Mini uses two AA cells. In term of battery cost, the Maglite mini is more economical to operate. This is because each AA cell contains about 3x more energy than AAA cell, yet they cost the same to buy.
Point: Maglite Mini

See the photos I uploaded to 'Customer Image' sections for size comparison. The XL50 is more compact than the Roughneck. Both are shorter and thicker than the Maglite Mini, making them easier to hold.
Point: Maglite XL50

[LED Light Output]
On paper the Roughneck is rated at an impressive '200 lumen', while the Maglte XL50 is only '104 lumen' and the Maglite Mini is '69 lumen'. In actual side-by-side comparison, however, the beam from XL50 is brighter and whiter than that of Roughneck. See my beam shot comparison photos in Customer Images section.
Point: XL50

[Electronic Switch]
All three flashlights offer multi-function electronic switch to turn the LED on at high power/low power or blinking mode.
- The Maglite Mini's electronic switch is activated by twisting its reflector, which is not easy for one-hand operation.

MAGLITE XL50-S3016 LED Flashlight, Black
This is a great flashlight. It is small enough to carry in a pocket, but much much more powerful than the old 2AA cell Maglites with krypton bulbs. I usually steer clear of LED flashlights because I hate the high color temperature (extreme blue cast) of the light they usually produce. This flashlight has a very comfortable color temperature, just a little bluer than most fluorescent lights in an office building.

As for power, it has plenty! It is painful to look into, even from 25 feet away. The light is mostly concentrated into about a 10° beam with a larger flood area about 45°. The description says the beam pattern is adjustable, but this is pretty ineffective in actual use. I don't find that I need to adjust as much with this as with the old krypton lamp type flashlights, so it doesn't really matter.

One improvement could be made: 1) include a wrist strap (or at least give me a hole to add my own)

I haven't had it long enough to run through a set of batteries yet (about 2 hours use to this point) so I can't comment on battery life.

The good:
- small
- powerful light
- good color light
- decent beam spread

The indifferent:
- beam focus adjustment

The bad:
- no wrist strap
- won't fit in 2AA minimag holster

Gets 5 stars and a recommendation.

Update: after having my flashlight for about 4 months I thought it was broken - every time I turned it on, after about 5 seconds it would automatically dim to the 50% level. Turned out that changing the batteries solved the issue. May be that's the low battery indicator? Still love the flashlight and wont trade it for any others.
