Bell & Howell Tac Light
DO NOT buy this flashlight. I am trying to save you from wasting your money like I did. I was all in and bought several of these in September of 2017, waited till November to receive my order, and by December, half of them (4 of the eight) I bought no longer work. I sent them back because 2 of them were delivered broken already, and 2 more have since, stopped working. After waiting to talk to a customer rep for 30 mins, I gave up. Junk. That's all I can say. Very disappointed.
I can't get a human voice.
Beware! I ordered by phone and a computer-generated questionnaire. After my initial order of $19.99, plus free bonus light for an additional $10 they asked for my billing information, which I gave. I was then offered 4 flashlights for $49.95, which I thought was a better deal. Then, I was offered yet another 'deal'.
I hung up and called customer service. After several tries (and hang-ups), I got a human voice who told me the $49.99 was added to my initial order, so I would get billed $79.94 for 6 lights. I was told by customer service that I could only give out information, and could not handle cancellations. I must check my credit card.
Flashlight & Lantern.
We love both of these. Lantern lights up a room and then some. I've beaten the heck out of mine and have no problems.
I bought one along with an atomic tech light as Christmas presents. The Atomic light worked great. The Bell & Howell didn't, that really sucks. I will seek a refund.
Completely different from all the other reviews.
Well today for Christmas, I was gifted a 2-pack of these lights. I put batteries in one which was very bright, and it works well, I like it.
I decided to go online, read many reviews all about lights. The fact that they are willing to ship the second light for a flat extra $10. I decided to check wife's credit card statement. Guess what? The only charge was for ONE light but I got a TWO pack. So even if they are both crap, I got the best deal compared to everyone.
So if they turn out not to be good, I can feel less guilty about trashing them, which apparently MANY people have done. LOL
Received 2, both DOA.
JUNK, JUNK, JUNK! I received two as gifts and neither work, pretty much DOA. I can't return them because they were gifts. I’m not paying $10 for shipping and handling replacement of a new piece of junk, when I can go to the store and get a cheap one for $2 that will at least work a few months. I tried everything possible (new batteries, etc.) but neither work. Every now and then, a flicker would light up but then as quick as it lights up, it quits. It is going in the trash. DON’T buy and waste your money!
Very bright, good quality.
I received the Taclight High-Performance Flashlight (40x Brighter) as a Christmas gift. It's extremely bright, seems to be of good quality construction. There is a warning about not shining into the eyes. Take this warning seriously, I accidentally did that and saw spots for an hour or more. Very good flashlight.
Still waiting for my flashlights.
I've been waiting for my paid flashlights for about 2 weeks. I tried to talk to customer service to find them but they are not available. I could not reach anyone. I'm really frustrated with the service. They don't answer the phone or call back, customer service is awful. If I don't receive any satisfaction soon, I will contact Inspector General of Alaska.
Bought Two, Both Junk.
I bought two at different times. The first one didn't work, so I sent it back. I thought that I might have gotten a lemon. The second one lasted only a week. Poor Quality. Awful switch cap. Why not make a flashlight that works without all the flashing modes?
Junk, would never recommend
I have had two of these lights, neither one of them lasted more than a couple of months. I would not recommend.
Very bad light
Bought this light hoping the light would work. It worked good about a month, then it quit working correctly. It would change modes when you moved it around. What a hunk of junk.
