Well, I have mixed feelings about this light. It offers a bright beam, has excellent throw, and long battery life, especially so considering the price. However, the first flashlight arrived with a jammed-up tail cap and had to be returned for another light. A weak point of this flashlight is a rotating assembly found in the tail cap designed to eliminate having to install a battery carrier. If the rotating assembly jams up for any reason, or the locating pins break for any reason, the flashlight is toast. In any event, Battery Junction replaced the defective flashlight with another. While the new light functioned properly, it arrived with battery alignment stickers floating around the flashlight housing, that is, not stuck where they belonged. Determining battery placement was easy enough, finding out which of the three battery slots needed the “red” sticker showing where a single 18650 or two cr123 batteries would be placed was another matter. Overall, a lot of light for the money. If I could change anything about this flashlight it would be the tail cap assembly and adding a USB charging port. I really do not want to open this flashlight up any more than necessary.

Use this mostly for boating here in Florida. It excels at locating distant channel markers in the darkest of nights. Amazing beam throw! Fits likes a glove to your hand. And it's just the right size; not big and heavy nor too small and delicate. Every time it goes out in the boat I get comments about what a great light. Unbelievable runtime too.

Cons: The whole side switch should illuminate or even around the switch. Indication of where the button switch is should at least have something to where you can find the button easier like a raised part or even a dimple. Pros: Great throw per battery usage. Compact design. Memory
Great Light at Great Price Point

Throws light really far. Use it to scare coyotes out of my yard who want to eat my wife's small dog when she goes out through dog door at night. Weird when you can see the glow of the coyote's eyes from several hundred yards away. Kept near nightstand near bed and the 18650 batteries are great with this light.

Compact light with great throw. Specs are correct. Runtime at maximum output far exceeds any other high output handheld flashlight I have ever purchased (I am an flashlight junkie). Price is very reasonable for this high output high quality product. Battery indicator is a nice feature allows you to check charge @ any time. Also will run on one battery (it has three). I highly recommend this flashlight.

This light is extremely bright. I like that it has both side and tail cap controls. The quality seems to be on par with Olight or Nitecore.

My first Klarus light and am not disappointed. Built well and puts out quite a bit of light with 3 batteries. I like the fact that you can still run it with just one 18650 as well and still get 1000 lumens. It also has a very nice strobe that intermittently switches back and forth from fast to slow strobe.
ProsA lot of light for the price. Can run on 1 or 3 18650's Excellent run time with 3hrs on turbo mode. Excellent strobe.
ConsDoes not come with a case. The front button switch is very hard to find by feeling it in the dark.
very good tailcap function

Overall this light will grow on you once you get use to handling it and using its functions it becomes one of your best lights it really has ample power and range with the single 18650 or the cr123a . the forward switch is a bit sensitive .
Prosputs out very nice light. Runtime with proper battery good. Good weight not heavy. Very impressive area it covers. Great two switch functioning. Nice battery indicator.
Conslittle hard to feel for front switch location.
