Two nice LED flashlights, fairly bright at 300 lumes zoomed in, Good reviews thatget an A rating from Fakespot --

$8.99, but add Coupon Code J7MKYKVW and the price drops $3.60 for both. That is cheap enough that you really can't go wrong.

Powered by 1pcs AA battery (Not included) or 14500 3.7v battery (Not included)

Just make sure you have such batteries and a charger. I do not. Most of my flashlights run on AA NiMH.

Damn it, I missed the _OR_ part. Such a fool.

The AA and the 14500 Li batteries are the same size. The Lithium 3.7v will be a bit brighter. They are a handy size and light weight.
This is a good deal with the coupon and prime.

I uses either an AA (pick your type) or one 14500 3.7V battery.

I wouldn't expect much from these lights without seeing the actual beam. I got a 2fer that looked identical to this but under a different name. The beam was horrible but the reviews were great.

So if you order these, keep expectations low, and anything above that will be a win.

I have a similar one (ton of them around). It rides in a toolbag in case I don't have a better/brighter light with me. Note that every time you turn it on/off, it moves to the next "setting" (bright/dim/strobe, etc.) so every 3rd/4th time it will start up in strobe mode. If this bugs you, you might want to pick a different model.

I forgot about that! Mine do the same, and it does bug me. Another thing that bugs me is manufacturers' penchant for including a strobe mode. Of course it wouldn't be tactical without one. I wish it could be user deleted.

My cheapest 'good deal' flashlights were the TechLite Lumen Master 200L lights sold by Costco, 3/$20. I've got six of them and they were a great deal. The two I got from Amazon cured me of going really cheap.

How on earth does it work with either a 1.5V or 3.7V battery?

I'm a little dubious on a $8 item having that kind of a transformer.

I suspect it's probably made for the 3.7V and will be pretty dim with a 1.5V.
