One of My Favorite Quotes...

“The Master in the art of living makes little distinction between his work and his play, his labor and his leisure, his mind and his body, his education and his recreation, his love and his religion. He hardly knows which is which. He simply pursues his vision of excellence in whatever he does, leaving others to decide whether he is working or playing. To him he is always doing both.”

Duracell Daylite LED Flashlight 3AAA

Got my hands on the Duracell Daylite LED Flashlight and played with it for a couple of hours. This particular flashlight from Duracell uses 3 AAA batteries and produces a good amount of light (80 lumens, 3 watt LED) for what it is, especially with batteries like the AAA. From the small amount of time I did have with it, it's a great general use light that's pretty inexpensive when you compare it to other models/brands. It's no Surefire or even a Fenix, but definitely decent for the average user. So, try not to smack it around too much and expect it to live. It's a worthy light at the $20 mark for sure.

As you can see from me taking it apart, the Duracell Daylite uses a 3 cell battery carrier, which gives it its girth. Despite being a bit thicker, it does have a good feel in the hand and being compact. It's also pretty light, no pun intended. I actually prefer lights around this size for general use. You can also see the knurling on the flashlight body as well as the head. It really does nothing for me and almost feels nonexistent. Not much gripping there. There's also one pet peeve that I have with general use flashlights. And that's a light that doesn't have any anti-rolling features. Nothing sucks more than a flashlight being put down and rolling away from you at the most needed time. More photos here...

Easy spot to flood abilities with no dark holes or loss in light quality. Advanced aircraft grade aluminum construction offers durability reassurance. Runs on 3AAA batteries included. Lifetime guarantee from a brand you can trust."

You may also notice the circles near the head of the light. Those circle designs are there to show that it can go from spot to flood with the twist of the flashlight head. To be honest, there's not really much of a difference. At least for me it wasn't. But the twist has smooth transition and no specific notches to land on. Frankly, it's almost too smooth for me. So, it isn't that precise unless you're at the tight spot or the full flood. More photos here...

I just picked up a Surefire 6PX Pro and took a few pics of it right next to the Duracell Daylite flashlight to compare the size. As you can see, there's not much of a difference in the body. The Daylite is thicker and a bit longer. But the head is where we can really show the difference. It's definitely larger than the Surefire. I figure it's for flooding the light. The light that comes out is a nice white light and pretty smooth too. Not bad at all.

All in all, a pretty good light for the masses that just wants a cheap light with plenty of output and easy to find batteries. But if you're used to Surefire type quality, it will disappoint you. So, look into it with an open mind...
