TACLIGHT ELITE—40X BRIGHTER THAN A REGULAR FLASHLIGHT! Extendable work light provides 180º of illumination with CREE® LEDs. Has zoom function and 5 beam modes: low, medium, high, strobe, SOS. Ideal for power outages, camping, auto, home. Has magnetic base. Uses 3 AAA batteries (not incl.).
Taclight was dead on arrival. Received the Taclight with damaged packaging. Outer box was NOT damaged, so the Taclight had to have been damaged before packing in the box. (Everything else in the box was intact and worked.) I tried two different sets of new batteries, separate packages and different manufacturers, neither worked at all. I'm going to send it back to HC for exchange, but postage is not that far from cost of the item.
