Vansky 700 Lumen Cree Led Flashlight
This is a great Vansky 700 Lumen Cree Led Flashlight. This flashlight is water resistant, made of durabel aluminum housing that will last awhile. The flashlight runs on 3-AAA batteries or 1- 18650 battery inside the included plastic tube. That is a very nice feature that isn't offered by any other flashlight. I like not having to worry about a power source. I can recharge my 18650, or if in a hurry I can just go out and buy some replacement AAA batteries for my flashlight. It comes with a nice wrist strap to secure the flash light to your hand. The feel in the hand is comfortable. It is of nice size for easy gripping. The light is a nicely balanced weight. The adjustable focus zoom allows you to focus on spot or beam lighting very brightly. The modes are High, middle, low, strobe & SOS. The button works flawlessly, easy to turn on and off. The push button is nice and quiet. It is very easy to use, water resistant & Perfect for many uses from camping, hunting to power outages.
*Well Made Durable Aluminum Housing will last a while.

Nice flashlight for the price UPDATED
By Texas Mark
See update at end
Ok, first let me say that for the price ($12.99 when I bought it) I think it's a great deal.
Next let me address the modes which I have read conflicting comments on. Mine has the 5 modes. If I turn mine off, it always turns on to the brightest mode regardless of what mode it was in when turned off. You can quickly turn it on and off to change modes or gently press the power button to do the same thing. Actually all a gentle press does is turn it off before actually "clicking" into the permanent off position. So the mode change it really more about the timing of turning it off. As long as it's turned back on within a certain time limit (like 2 seconds) it will change modes, otherwise it goes back to full bright. I am unsure if I think this is a good thing or not. Since the strobe is the 4th mode, you may have a hard time selecting it in a hurry.
I can't say if it really is 700 lumens but it is plenty bright, especially for the price. It is also built fairly well, so I have no complaints there.
My only gripes are with the included batteries that lasted for about 30 seconds. I thought the flashlight had died, but it was just the garbage batteries. And the user manual was useless as it has no actual operating instructions.
I give it 4 stars for the somewhat awkward mode changing. I would have liked it to have had a dedicated strobe button.
Update: I liked this light so much I ordered 3 more. However one had about 2/3 the brightness of the other two, even with new batteries. Return was easy, but I can see why some people may not think it's very bright if they happen to get a lemon. Had I not had the other ones to compare to, I would have though it was normal.

Great flashlight with one minor flaw
Very good flashlight with easy-to-adjust beam. All five modes work (double click the power switch to access each mode; they are sequential). I would give it five stars except that the flashlight is different from the photo. In the photo, the glass dome is recessed below the lowest metal cutout of the housing, but on my flashlight, it is below the highest level but above the lowest cutout. What this means is that if you ever need to use the front edge of the flashlight to strike something, there is a chance that you will break the glass. If the bulb did not protrude so much, this would not be an issue. Otherwise, it is a very nice flashlight at a good price.
