    Does Malkoff make all the parts in the US that are used in their flashlights ?

    usa flashlights? would it really cost a lot more to make a flashlight in the usa?

    I believe that there is not one flashlight that can legally be labeled as being made in the USA nor could one be made which would conform to the requirements for labeling.

    Flashlight brands and manufacturers - so many but is there a list of qualities?

    https://www.ftc.gov/tips-advice/business-center/guidance/complying-made-USA-standard For lights other than Fenix I would be interested in knowing where service is available here in the States AND if the warranty specifically excludes certain parts/items.

    Flashlight brands and manufacturers - so many but is there a list of qualities?

    so how about we go through the points and really help the op out; of the big names-which have parts stocking warranty centers here in the US-which warranties are the most inclusive-which offer the lights with the longest run times and the most useful levels of output and which lights are...

    Flashlight brands and manufacturers - so many but is there a list of qualities?

    "come on mannnnn"-intelligent responses would be far more helpful to the op than simply resorting to childish name calling. An 'executable' warranty is not an important quality when considering which maker to opt for? A maker which correctly and lawfully labels its product as to country of...

    Flashlight brands and manufacturers - so many but is there a list of qualities?

    While ALL flashlights are essentially made in China NOT all flashlights are the same; some are marketed with no meaningful warranty at all, some are sold with a warranty but without the resources to obtain parts/repairs or no resources in the country in which the customer resides to obtain...

    Are Fenix Flashlights Really That good

    nbp, the op consists of 27 words with two brands cited. byk-absolutely no offense taken with any of your posts, I rather enjoy them. It is quite easy to establish categories for lights because a category, by definition, requires and consists of shared characteristics-really purely objective...

    Are Fenix Flashlights Really That good

    How can I search if Greta has a sticky stating that it isn't available-I don't know anything about 'drop ins' other than that this thing exists and I still don't know what the HDS is-fairly confident that -by-, and others, are making sport of me and this is fine as I enjoy humor-especially...

    Are Fenix Flashlights Really That good

    I'll admit to being ignorant of a 'p60' and hds if anyone can provide information it would be greatly appreciated. The 'qualities' of one flashlight compared to another absolutely do indicate which is 'better' ; all things being fairly equal isn't a longer run time better-isn't a higher output...

    Are Fenix Flashlights Really That good

    The 8 count of levels does include the strobe listed twice which was done as the 'tactical' setting provides rapid selection of both the 2000 lumen output and the strobe - think seven levels if you wish-still unequaled by any other maker.

    Are Fenix Flashlights Really That good

    Yes While the TK35UE 3200 does have a dedicated 'tactical' mode; 2000 lumens and a desirable highly disorienting strobe also at 3200 lumens this light does lack what I would see as an design feature that every true tactical flashlight should have and that is a strike bezel. Here are the...

    bykfixer; bold and accurate http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wUIogh3cteY I invite all to read the specs on this pocketable gem and if you think there is a better choice please post-yes this will involve posting other brands but it really is the only way to demonstrate the superiority of Fenix...

    Are Fenix Flashlights Really That good

    To properly assess a brand requires that differences between brands be acknowledged. With regard to the TK35 series; the 35UE should be standard issue to every police officer in the US-it is categorically and unequivocally the finest light on the planet for general law enforcement use. This...

    Are Fenix Flashlights Really That good

    Thrunite does have one of the more unusual stated warranties; while the entire light is covered, electronics included, products purchased as 'gifts' are specifically excluded as are any and all replacements (in toto) provided should a claim be honored. If nothing was lost in the translation...
