    There’s no name brand on it, just the typical “CREE Led” flashlight with an absurd amount of lumens that are sold on Ebay. I forgot how many lumens they claim it is, but it’s crazy bright and when at full zoom can illuminate an object a couple of blocks away. Lol.

    I’ve had it for a few years and have come to the conclusion that the only real thing that sets these flashlights apart are the rechargeable batteries you put in them.

    That’s just my 2 cents though and I’ve got a pet peeve against stamping the panel. I’ve also got a pet peeve against burritos that are cut in half with a knife… If you ever want to ruin a perfectly good burrito, cut it in half! Lol.

    If it ain’t a circle it just doesn’t feel right.Compound coverage on pad





    Microfiber pads are the lone exception. I do prime those.


    I agree with this.
