Review for Maglite 3d led

Recently I purchased a 3D LED MagLite at the local Walmart for around $30.00. This has become my go to light for anything from finding wood at night to
looking under my car. As soon as you take it out of the package you can feel the quality built into this light. It is nice and heavy, made out of solid aluminum, and super bright. This light could easily be used as an improvised club if need be and there are many stories of people doing this.
MagLites have always had a reputation as the best flashlights for your money. The 3D LED has a runtime of 79 hours according to the manufacturer and I have not yet tested the actual runtime but this seems pretty close to reality. After several  months of use I haven't replaced the batteries yet.
You will be able to see up to 364 meters with a lumen rating of 131 lumens and while I dont have a way to test lumens I would be prone to believe this due to how bright the beam is once focused. Overall I would give this light a 5/5 star rating due to the fact that it has held up so far.

Long Term Update
This flashlight has been awesome to me. Its been almost 3 years since I bought it but the damn thing wont die. When the batteries get low it tends to shut off if bumped. Even though its scratched to hell it still works like a champ. Haven't gotten to use my mag light as a whoopass stick yet but maybe someday. It does function as a hammer. Im still giving this Mag a 5/5 score. Probably the best flashlight I've ever owned.

  1. Bears, coyotes, raccoons, and even wolves can be
    quite unwelcome in your campsite, especially if they are helping themselves
    to your food or your dog's food. Also, bigger animals may flock to the campsites: foxes, badgers and in some areas even bears may come uninvited, attracted by the smell of food and leftovers. A head light is one of the most essential camping gadgets during night for the convenience, if there is no power supply at the site of camping.

  2. Cooking one-pot meals is the way to go when
    it comes to cold weather camping, so be sure to pack a
    cast iron dutch oven before you head out for your camping adventure.
    Once you decide what kind of Oregon coast camping vacation you
    are looking for, finding an Oregon coast camping site is a piece of cake.

    Many of the most pleasant trips we've had were at camp sites that were relatively basic yet in the midst of beautiful countryside.
