The Bonfire X puts 350 lumens of focusable light on your belt. One of the brightest flashlights available at this size! The latest LED technology combined with the precision zoom lens produces bright white light with clean edges. The Cree LED chip sets new benchmarks for efficiency and you can switch to low mode for even longer battery life. Solid state design is virtually indestructible, since there is no filament to burn out. The Bonfire X has 3 modes: full power, low power, and emergency flashing. Uses 3 AAA batteries (included!), or a single 18650 battery (not included) with the included alternate adapter. Used by paramedics and firefighters, plumbers, electricians, homeowners, backpackers and campers...anyone who needs a lot of light in the dark in a compact, sturdy body. Tactical front bezel design. It's light weight and clips onto belts, pants, or any other fold....just 4.4 oz without batteries and 5.6 oz with 3 AAA batteries installed.

When I read the other reviews for this light, I was iffy on whether or not I would be getting a good light, because of how brief and glowing the reviews were, as well as my inability to find much information about the light or, as a matter of fact, who actually produces this product. My review will be a little more in-depth than theirs. I will be writing this review as someone who is not familiar with the high-end flashlight world, and as someone who buys flashlights out of necessity for camping and general purpose. This is also my review having just received the light, and not having put it through any real-world use.
This is a great light. My light shipped with the flashlight, a lanyard that attaches to the split ring on the end of the light, 3 (cheapish) utilitech AAA batteries (in cylindrical battery pack held together with phillips head screws), and a plastic adapter for a 18650 battery. I'll probably replace the batteries with rechargeable lithiums or a 18650.
The body of the light is all aluminium. It seems to be well built, but came a little dirty (?) on the inside. The finish could be better; it seems to scratch easily. The strike bezel on the front seems adequate; I'm sure if you needed to, you could whack someone in the head with this thing and it would certainly ruin their day, but they're nothing to write home about. I think they serve a better purpose protecting the lens than as a weapon (which they seem to do fairly well), but I'm no tactical flashlight commando. The light unscrews in one place at the tailcap and two places at the lens housing end. You can pretty much field strip it like a hand gun, which I like. My only real gripe with the body of this light is that the lens housing end of the light (part with the strike bezel above the zoom dial) does not seem to be o-ring sealed, which means that the lens and the led are not weather sealed, while the battery compartment is. The other two screw off compartments have o-rings, so I'm not sure why the manufacturer left it out on that one. It seems to me that the lack of an o-ring on that part of the light greatly limits its water resistance, while if it had one I would feel pretty comfortable saying this thing would be totally waterproof. Overall, a good quality body.
Onward to the light itself. It is very bright. I have no equipment to test its brightness with, nor do I have any other quality flashlights to test it against except for my 3 D cell Mag Lite, and it's much brighter than that. The beam is adjustable via a clicking, rotating dial around the lower part of the lens housing. The adjustments are crisp and functional, and the beam can be adjusted to be very large, or it can be dialed down to the point that it actually projects the image of the led through the lens, which is a very tight beam, and everywhere in between. This is a pretty cool and useful feature. The beam has a very nice rainbow halo around it, whether or not this a useful feature I can't say, but if nothing else I think it's indicative of a good lens in the light. By the way, in case you haven't gathered this already, the light works like an LED lenser, and has a rather round, convex lens. The light has 3 modes: High, Low, and Flashing High, although I'd say that low is closer to "Medium," which is my only other real gripe with the light. The low power is still pretty bright. I would prefer a "low" setting on a light to be low enough to read by or do minor tasks at night without ruining your night vision, but this one is just a touch too bright to do that. But that's more personal opinion than a flaw in the light, I'll admit. I'm not sure what the flashing mode is for, but I'll chalk that up to ignorance and see if I can't find a good use for it.
The tailcap switch works well. It's pretty standard, click on and off, and light pressure cycles the beam modes.
The light comes with a removable pocket clip attached and a rubber hexagonal anti-roll device around the barrel.
-Finish is easily scratchable.
-Lacks an o-ring on one of the screw-off points, hindering weather resistance. (Update: never had a problem with this - not sure if the lack of an o-ring here matters.)
-Low mode is a little brighter than I'd like it to be.
-Multiple battery options.
-Easy on the wallet.
-Very high value.
Bottom line, you're not going to be impressing any flashlight snobs with this thing, but it works. It's functional and it (seems) tough. It's bright as all get out, and it's easy to use. If you're not looking for a dive light or a $300 zero-fail combat light, but instead just need a do-it-all medium-duty flashlight, I'd get it. At $35, I'd say it's a great piece of equipment and a great value (considering how much some people pay for flashlights), and would recommend it. You get a lot of flashlight for 35 bucks.
I thought I'd just give an update on this light as I've had it now for almost 8 months. I'm upgrading my rating to a 5-star. And the reason I'm doing that is simple: value. As of right now, this light has never failed me, it's outstandingly bright, and I only spent 35 bucks for it. (<soapbox>) so many people will rant about how important it is to spend zillions of dollars on super high end zero-fail gear, and would scoff at a product like this. I'm a student on a serious budget and I am glad I went with this over a high end light. (</soapbox>)
It's been with me backpacking and camping, as well as being my every day carry light in my backpack as a student, and it has just never quit. I've gotten it wet,I've abused it, carried it and used it and it just hasn't let me down. The finish isn't as scratchable as I though it was either, no noticeable damage on the light. I took the anti-roll thing off my light, and don't really miss it. It's rubber and it hangs up on stuff. The click on the tailcap is still nice and positive, no hangup when changing modes, the lens hasn't scratched despite many opportunities to, and it's still working great. I did end up putting some energizer rechargeables in it as my primary battery for the light, and they work fine. I've learned to like the low mode for what it is, it is very useful for everyday tasks that don't require the full brightness and would require more light than a "moonlight" mode, which is what I was initially looking for, as mentioned in my initial review. I find that I like the "zoom" lenser type light suits my needs more than a fixed beam would. I find myself constantly changing the wideness of the beam. With the beam zoomed all the way tight, on high mode, this thing is a spotlight, if it's really dark out. Which is pretty cool. As of right now, everyone I've shown it to has wanted one.
I do think it's worth mentioning again that the fit and finish on this light is not going to compare to really high end flashlights like fenix and surefire and all those, so people who are looking for a conversation piece or a collector's item should probably look to spend more money elsewhere. But if you just want a reliable tool, not a name, then get this light. I love mine, and I don't recommend lightly.
By the way, the company who makes this light is called BrightMedic, and, from what their website says, is a New-Mexico based company made up of firefighters, paramedics and EMT's. They also offer a 45 day return policy in which they will accept the product back for a full refund, even paying return shipping. All the lights they make also have a 1-year factory-defect warrany.
Because it's just a great light for so little money, I think now, having had it for 8 months, that it deserves a 5 star rating.
I found two orange flashlights: The Bonfire X and the J5 Tactical V1. Both were roughly the same price, so I bought one of each.
The Bonfire X is a great flashlight. With 3 AAA batteries, it is plenty bright. I actually prefer the twist-zoom, as it’s less likely to be bumped compared to a push-pull zoom. It also comes with a lanyard, albeit one that is too small for my hand (it is large enough for my wife’s hand). Finally, it’s a nice size that fits well in the hand.
I do not like the 3 mode-button. Every time you turn on the flashlight, it switches to a different mode (the modes can also be switched using light taps). I might see if I can modify to use only the bright mode.
