3 of 5 Not bad November 30, 2020
Reviewer: James from Honolulu, HIHonolulu, Hawaii United States  
I was anticipating an very bright flashlight in this model, however, I must say I was a bit disappointed when i received it and tried it out. 1000 Lumens should be brighter than this. My Nitecore EC20 960 Lumen light is a lot brighter than this light. The adjustable brightness function is awesome though! The adjustment wheel should also prevent accidental turning on of the light when it's in your pocket as well.

5 of 5 Awesome Flashlight March 12, 2020
Reviewer: Robert RRobobHall from Compton, CA United StatesLo  
I was surprised how affordable this light was.
Also this is a very good bright light. I went into a dark room and pointed it to the ceiling and rotated the on/off switch. So, this light lit the room up just as if the ceiling light on actually on, you could barely tell the difference. I recommend this light as a every day carry. Don't leave home without it.

Reviewer: David  
I bought this light because of the switch. Nice to be able to control the brightness as needed, or not needed. This is Niitecore flashlight #6.
