8 hour advertised run-time, includes a pair of generic AA alkaline cells.

The Luxeon LED has a tighter, more focused spot than is typical - It's more of a thrower than a flooder. The switch is your standard reverse clickie. Has good-quality threads, average finish quality.

Dorcy Part No. 41-4216 - Get 'em while they're still available for cheap!

Thanks for the tip, I picked one up this morning. It's plenty bright for an $11/2AA light, so if it holds up in the "throw it down the driveway" tests, I'll be pretty happy with it.

I'll see of our local store has them.

Thanks!

Saw the same light at Target for around $20.00. But now I am going over there now to buy one ASAP!

Thanks for the heads-up.

Nice light for 11 bucks!

On a fresh set of Alkalines, it draws right around 400 mA, so the 8 hour advertised run-time probably isn't too far off the mark.

Interestingly, it starts up and runs just fine on a single AA cell (plus a dummy cell) - Draws around 500 mA, so there isn't really any battery-saving advantage to using it this way, but it's good to know that it's still usable on a nearly dead set of batteries.

I'll be heading to my local big lots for this...never have enough led flashlights.
