As with most Coast lights, the case is manufactured of black machined aluminum, with a nice checkering for grip, and fits perfectly in the hand. Access to the battery compartment is through the threaded tail cap, which is sealed by an O-ring, and also includes a handy lanyard ring. The three AAA batteries are fitted into a removable cartridge within the flashlight body. The L.E.D. is covered by a polycarbonate lens which is recessed to avoid damage if dropped, and the switch is tail mounted and rubber covered. The switch feels sturdy and provides a positive "click" when activated. It may also be partially depressed for signalling or momentary light. Only a single light level is provided. The PX25 is IPX4 rated (splashing/rain).
The PX25 is rated @ 208 lumens with battery life estimated at 6 hrs 15 mins. Since it is an unregulated light, brightness will slowly diminish as the batteries become exhausted. In my runtime test, even at six and a half hours, it was still going strong and brighter than any of the cheap, 3-AAA multi-LED units you see everywhere.Read more ›
Speaking of that, battery life seems to be THE shortcoming of this light. Unfortunately, there is no lower brightness setting to extend battery life in situations where maximum brightness is not needed. Coast says the light will run about 6 hours on a set of AAA batteries. But this is only if you use alkalines and let the light dim to 21 lumens. Speaking of alkalines, I'm actually not too impressed with the performance of alkalines in this light, as the light dims rapidly with use. This is not the fault of the light, though. A quick check with an ammeter reveals that the light draws about .6A. At this point, AAA alkalines are quite overworked (and then some!). MUCH better is to run this light with NiMH batteries - both for sustained brightness AND to save money (since this light REALLY goes through batteries). But if you go out for a hike where you'll be using the light for much longer than an hour, be sure to bring extras. Otherwise, you could find yourself left in the dark!
Operating Conditions: Stays in my hip pocket. Never subject to outdoor elements, extreme temperatures, or humidity. Batteries are fresh Energizers.
My guess is that there is something wrong with the power switch that causes intermittent failure after passing electrical current for a long total amount of time. The more you use the flashlight, in other words, the sooner it starts to flicker. After the flicker epoch ends, the on/off switch just stops working.
I wrote to the company about this, long ago, and received no reply.
I like the case alot. I wish Coast would fix this flicker problem.
I contacted the company over a week ago and they never answered me, hence the 3 stars, not much of a guarantee if you can't contact them. so much for customer service. Other than that it works fine, when it's not cutting off, would be 5 star if they had any customer service.
Update: April 26,2013
This is something else that I based my review on customer service, I contacted the company again a couple of days ago and got a prompt reply from a customer service agent who thought he knew what the problem was and was going to send me apart to correct it. I'm really glad I heard from him because light is terrific and I wanted to give a couple for presents but I was worried about the customer service if they had a problem with it, I'm so glad that's solved.
I guess I can assume that my first message to them got lost somewhere in the system and I'm so glad that I tried again, many thanks to the customer service department for sending me the part, haven't received it yet but I expect to shortly.
Update: Feb 5, 2014
I received the part in a few days, but am sad to say it did not solve the problem, due to family matters I wasn't able to address the issue by returning the light for service until a few weeks ago.Read more ›
