Wonderful flashlight for walking,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Streamlight 68202 4-AA Battery 7-LED Flashlight, Yellow (Tools & Home Improvement)
After using this flashlight, I can't imagine using any other flashlight. The battery life is so amazing that you don't have to feel bad leaving it on. We used them in Hawaii to find out way back from the active lava flow. We had to hike 4 miles across uneven hardened lava in the dark to get back. The flashlights made it possible - we lent an extra one to another couple so that they could make it back too. Their conventional flashlight's batteries died.
The flashlight will light up a room and light up the ground in front of you very well. Does not focus like a conventional flashlight. The light goes all over and lights up whatever surface you shine at much better, but cannot go long distances (not over 15 feet well) since it disperses.
Great product! Would highly recommend. Incidentally, despite some reviews suggesting that they are easily broken, I have not had any problems with any of the 3 we purchased and even have dropped them accidentally a few times.
