This light is a piece of crap. I ordered it on the last drop and just got it. The light is not as bright and claimed and it looks like a brass plated flashlight. Not a quality product, very disappointed. looks more like a chinese knock off. Buyer beware!!!!
Could it be possibly that you did not read the guidance? Pressing several times switches you through the different modes from low to mid to high, sounds to me that you use the torch only in the first mode.
And no, the torch is really made of solid brass and was subsequently polished, this is not a cheap flashlight.
I own now 3 of the brass ones, 3 copper ones and 2 Ti, never had any problems with them, really great flashlights!
No I read the guidance, it is just a cheap light. No at all the quality that I expected from Massdrop. The photo made the light look like it was the quality of a CountyComm flashlight. This light pales in comparison. Disapointed in my purchase
CountyComm Flashlights? You are talking about Maratac? Maratac Flashlights are made by Lumintop like the brass one we are talking about and the Tool series. CountyComm doesn't build any flashlights, they buy their torches from China with a Maratac Logo.
The only way this light somehow wasn't 'as bright' as claimed is if you forgot to wait for the tailswitch to charge. Now for all I know, they forgot to include the little instruction slip like they did in the first drop, where it explicitly states to put in a battery and wait some time before turning on the light.
Otherwise, the output is identical to every other light of this size using this same LED. Also, it is identical to the light you'd find on Countrycomm because it is the same manufacturer.
It is not the same as the CountyComm nor does it compare in quality. I own the CountyComm product and this light is substandard. The Brass is fake looking. Please stop making an excuse for an inferior product. It is a poor quality metal and the light is not as bright "period". For anyone reading my review "buyer beware... you get what you paid for specifically in this case". - end of story I am disappointed in the quality and wanted to warn others before they throw their money away like I did.
So more than 4000 owners bought crap
I own both Maratac and Lumintop as well as this light. They are identical. It's not really debatable.
If you had any actual input on the quality of the light, you would have to point to it specifically. Your vague opinion on quality is noted, but otherwise unhelpful.
They probably didn't know better
The light has a capacitor which must charge before it will operate properly. A minute or two after installing a new battery is all it takes. As far as the "plated" comment, it's just not. Since you are so disappointed in your light, go and take a hacksaw to it and show us the base metal the . How about this; you cut yours in half and prove that it's plated and I'll buy you two of the countycomm lights you like so much.
Hmm, quite curious he hasnt been able to substantiate his claims. I think we can safely categorize him as a troll.
