Energizer Triple Beam LED Flashlight
Good Performance When It Worked
As others have said... the switches go dead real quick. I bought this to use during my summers as a camp counselor. Red light is great for digging through my gear without waking up the campers. Bright white light was great for lighting a trail on a night hike. Big buttons were awesome for using while gloved.
Unfortunately this light has a serious achilles heel... after only 2 weeks of use this light bit the bullet. The switches died, the light would randomly turn off and on while untouched, and the batteries obviously get drained.
Great design and features. But the most important part, the turning it on or off part, was the thing that makes this a BAD choice for a flashlight. (This is clearly a problem others have had too. Kind of surprised Energizer continues to sell the product.)

I really enjoyed this flashlight until the switch became faulty. The main switch will come on unexpectedly, even while the flashlight is resting on a countertop. The batteries will drain quickly. The unit only lasted for about 2 months. I am very disappointed because I normally experience excellent performance from Energizer flashlights. All of the other features of this light work well.

nice concept, but poor execution.
I was looking for a LED flashlight with white, red, and either blue or green lights. I found this and figured it was a good fit.
After purchasing it I was disappointed. The cap for the battery compartment comes of with less than an eighth of a turn. So I put some duck tape on there, because the last thing I need in the dark is for my light source to self destruct. But then I noticed that one of the switches doesn't work properly. I have to apply a painful downward and forward force to get the green light to work. For this poor quality of a light I felt that it was priced way too high. I paid $19.99 for this light. I think even if everything worked properly I would still be disappointed with the quality.
