    1st review

    This is your standard duty original rechargable flashlight. Not one of those ABS plastic lights. It's heavy, its far brighter than the Streamlight and can be used as a defensive weapon if needed. I'll take it over a plastic light any day.

    Great general use patrol flashlight. We mount chargers in all our cars, so these are always ready to go. Ijust wish the bulbs wouldn't die if you accidently drop the light.

    Tough and reliable, much better than the D-cell lights. Adjustable beam good if you like that. I have had mine for a few years the head turns on it's own and I have to continually readjust the beam to where I had it. I have changed to the SL-20 and like much better

    The best flashlight I've used, ever. My dept. issued the Streamlight Stinger, and I only use that as a back-up light. I purchased this light and haven't been disappointed. There's nothing better than walking up on a vehicle and shining this baby in the eyes of the suspect. You get a definate advantage when they have to squint and put their hands up to block the light. The only problem I've had with this light is the halogen bulbs seem to burn out much quicker than standard maglite bulbs--but I always keep a few spares around just in case.

    I got mine as a Christmas gift from my wife a year ago. My department's fleet services mounted my charger in my car. It's easy to reach and always ready to go. Sending 40,000 candlepower into a suspect eyes gives you and advantage. The bulbs burn out a little quicker than I like, but that may be attributed to being dropped. I have found that during foot pursuits, you may be lighting the way for your suspect. The light is very reliable and tough. If mine ever wears out, I won't hesitate to by another. I work with guys that have had theirs for 15-20 years.

    The maglite is an icon in American Law Enforcment. We have Maglite rechargables mounted in most all of our patrol vehicles. They are heavy but are virtually troulbe free other than bulbs and battery sticks wearing out.

    These are great flashlights. I wish we used them instead of the streamlight, which after a few weeks of work will stop working.

    Tough, reliable, been dropped, submerged, driven over, and still kicking. I've used numerous lights over the past twenty years of service and this is by far the best yet. Wouldn't work a night shift without it.

    I absouletly love this light. Everyone gives me crap because I have not "converted" over to a stinger or something like it, but I love knowing that I can light up any dark space with it, and if necessary, use it as a defensive weapon. I have found over the years that having the vehicle mount/charger for it really helps to keep the light useful. Until they come out with a smaller light that can produce the lumens that this one can (with an adjustable flood/spot beam too) I think it's a keeper!

    Have had mine for 14 years and only replaced the battery stick once. Been thru a lot of bulbs due to rough use which is to be expected but hands down the best flashlight on the market. Plan on having it thru retirement. Have had rookies on calls with me searching buildings and they are amazed how much brighter it is than there plastic ones. If the sun is down and I leave the cruiser the light goes with me.

    I've carried one of these since the beginning and after 5 years it's still going strong. Maglite makes a good product. Beware of the weakness they have between the light head and the battery involving the charging rings. Do your best not to take your flashlight apart. Once it comes apart, it's never the same. You will experience issues with reliability. The switches wear out as anything does over time. Overall I would buy one again. It's a bright, fairly reliable flashlight at a reasonable price.

    I have had the same one since I recieved it as a gift from a fellow officer. to commemorate an event in our careers 18 years ago. In those 18 years, I have replaced numerous bulbs, sent it back to have the switch replaced and am on my 4th battery stick. The bulbs are ususally my fault. They seem to be pretty good, but like any bulb, if if is hot/warm from use and you drop the light, they are toast. The switch was prolly my fault too. We used to have old metal mesh (1" squares or so) in the cruisers that were just perfect for sliding the light in. I am sure it was hard on the switches and assuredly caused you to lose the rubber covers.

    I also have a Stinger XP, bought it for size and convenience, used it for about a month and now it has been relegated to home repair duties. I like the heft of the Maglight. It is a light, can be used as a voluntary compliance tool (come-along holds) or if everything is on the line, and you have no other choice, you can slap the piss out of somebody with it.

    Mine is pretty beat up from 18 years of faithful service. I expect to carry it 16 more.

    I've had mine for over 11 years. I've had to replace the battery twice and the bulb once. For the abuse this unit has taken, I'd have to consider this probably the best flashlight for the price. I've owned probably 6+ other flashlights in my career. After trying all of the other gimmicks, I'm always driven back to the Mag. This light can take abuse and keeps working well. Just wish they'd make an LED bulb for it.

    I have used this product since 1993. I work traffic operations and use this flashlight as my primary source. I utilized two other lights to supplement different tasks. I find that it's light output is very good and works well in lighting up the interior of vehicles and blinding the vehicle's operator. The weight isn't hindering in my operations and is effective in defense capibilities. Yes, I said it. In defending your life you have to use any means necessary to survive. The charger has mounts for vehicle and home. I recommend installing a variety of flashlight chargers in your patrol cars. Of course, the same place for each charger for muscle memory. I highly recommend this MagCharger.
