This product is so much better than the heavy lead/acid models whose batteries don't last much more than year. The strobe function can startle an intruder or attract quick attention to you or your boat. The laser pointer is interesting but I'm not sure of its use--be careful where you aim it. I use it mainly at home, but also on my sailboat.

Toggling feature ruins the light

The toggling feature is awful- as you pull the trigger to turn on and off, the light automatically toggles between hi/low/ and strobe. When trying to navigate, this is extremely annoying as I just like to turn the high beam on and off, not toggle between settings. In comparison, Streamlight has a separate external switch that sets the type of light so it remains constant for each pull of the trigger. That is a much easier to use.

        Comments about LED SuperSpot Searchlight:

        Bought two at same time, one of them out of the package would get stuck on strobe, the trigger switch is faulty, I took it back and got another one, this one lasted about a month using it only 3 or 4 times and it started doing same thing. My third one is now also doing the same thing. Also I dont like having to click and go through all 3 levels to pick which one I want, they should have a dial on front or switch on it so you can put it where you want it and pull the trigger. It is the perfect light with brighness and size but you cant depend on it at all.

        Comments about LED SuperSpot Searchlight:

        Have used 2 of these lights for 2 years on and off. Had to return them 2 times already. Now they are staring to act up again. New out of the box malfunctioned almost immediately. Returned. Now after 2 years of constant use they are acting up again. Turn on lights bright, goes to low beam and shuts off. I charge these lights after each use. I use them for an hour or two doing Home Inspections. They have been really great until now. Not sure how to rate them. 5 when they work 0 when they don't... Not sure I would recommend to a friend.

          I've owned my unit for several years, great quality store brand. A lightweight unit that really gets the job done, comfortable grip, no brainer toggle. Like my cell phone, I've made a habit of keeping my unit on the charger when not in use and I haven't had any battery issues.

              Not useful as a standby light for boat. Light is not charged when needed. Don't know why West Marine continues to sell it.

              This product works great as described, however for only a very short period of time. I can't believe West Marine keeps it on their shelves. This is my third flashlight. They quit working when they've been recharged, and I know how to do this properly. The salesmen have been allowing me to trade it for the same product or give me a gift card. And, when I've asked, they have said they have not heard of any problems with it. Well, I'm on my third light... I'll see how this one performs. If it doesn't recharge this time I will take the gift card when I return it.

                          I don't know what's worst the product or the store, I walked into a west marine store to have my light changed and I was blown off by the lady who seems to be the store mgr giving me a story on how I'm I suppose to charge the equipment and on how she has two other in the store that where brought in for the same complaint it won't hold the charge!!!! Extremely disappointed !!!

                                It is very hard to 'turn off' this flashlite. Trigger switch sticks. Battery won't hold a charge after about 10 minutes of use.

                                  Long-lasting two level brightness with laser in relatively small package. I was impressed with it and figured the high cost was worth it because it is rechargeable. However, the recharger stopped working after only a couple of recharges. I brought it to West Marine and they told me I was out of luck because I had purchased it more than a year earlier and the warranty was over. It ended up being extremely expensive for a few hours of use. I will not buy a rechargeable flashlight from West Marine again.
