    Post Very Decent Cheapo CREE Flashlights - I Just Bought A 3 Pack

    I paid a little bit more than $19.00 on an Ebay "Buy It Now" auction (Free Shipping) for 3 of these after I watched this Vid.
    The ones that I bought were exactly the same but, the 250 Lumen models.
    And for the price I really don't care if they are not quite 250 actual Lumens or not.
    I just need a few extra lights to have around and the price is hard to beat especially with the 9 alkaline batteries included.
    I know that our members love their higher dollar flashlights and I have no problem with that at all.
    I doubt if you would pay a lot of $$$ for a really good light and then drop it about 15/20 Feet onto concrete just to test it out.
    I really just wanted some reliable flashlights that take common batteries and that I can just leave in a few different locations.

    No...This is not me in this Video. I just spotted it on YouTube and watched it when I was viewing various flashlight video reviews.
    I watched this VID and then said: OK...I'll buy a few of these.
    So...here you go...a few Aluminum bodied lights that are cheap enough that you can even give them away in an emergency pinch.

    I've seen them at Costco and thought, I should pick up a pack of em. Then I look at the couple of hundred dollars worth of stuff in the cart and think maybe next time.

    Mine didn't arrive yet. I'll post an update of what I think of them when they get here and I can actually get one in hand.

    Did they arrive yet, and if so what's the verdict on them?
