1.0 out of 5 stars Batteries drained when not in use - these are useless, May 8, 2011
By 
This review is from: TechLite Lumen Master High-Intensity Tactical LED Flashlight 3-Pack (Misc.)
I bought a 2 pack of the TechLite Lumen Masters at Costco last year. One of the flashlights does not drain the batteries, the other one does - when not in use! I rigged up a cover for the end switch, thinking that perhaps the switch was being depressed by accident. That did not help; the flashlight drained the 3 AAA 1.5 volt alkaline Duracells while sitting in a glove compartment. I have replaced the batteries 3 times, now realize that it is defective. I had turned on the flashlight after I replaced the batteries, tested again about a month later, but never actually used the flashlight. The other flashlite was also left in a glove compartment - but does not drain the batteries. These flashlight were meant to be available in an emergency. I replaced the defective TechLite in my wifes glove compartment with a Surefire brand E2DL-BK(Mother's day gift).Surefire E2DL-BK Surefire Defender High-Output Flashlight Bundle Much much more expensive - but at least it will be available when she needs it. (I paid $165 - came with 2 batteries in the flashlight, another 2 in a package for "free" at B&H)
