Free is definitely the best price of all. My wife works for a company that sells construction supplies and some tools. So they ocasionally get free "sample" lights. Well since noone in management there is into flashlights, they don't care what happens to these free samples. So as of today I have gotten a total of four free flashlights this way. All have been cheap China lights, but all have worked decent. Today's light was the coolest of all. It's sold under the brand name Nebo, which I had never heard of until today. It's a 3xAAA light with five green LEDs on the first click, ten white LEDs on the second click, and a red laser on the third click. About average brightness for a light of this caliber but what is coolest to me is the laser. I have owned lasers before but haven't had one for many years and was just thinking this week that I might buy another laser. Well cool... got one for free!
It's actually a cool looking little light (sorry, don't have a pic yet). And I think it will make it's way into my EDC rotation as one of the 3-4 lights that I carry daily. I believe they call it the Nebo Super CSI flashlight.
Free is good!
