This light is undeniably bright, but being rated at a jaw-dropping 235 lumens, I did actually expect it to be brighter. I'm not saying it was disappointing, but I wasn't as wowed as I thought I'd be. I also thought that the beam distance wasn't as impressive as I had built up in my mind while holding the package in the store. I think the low mode for the white bulb should be less bright; it's too close in brightness to the high mode. Sometimes I want a dim white mode for just basic, close-in tasks, that don't require retina-searing sunlight and battery wasting. I don't think the flashing strobe light is useful in any way. It's only real-world use is to induce seizures in people! The biggest problem with this light is the method of switching to the colored light modes, which you do by holding down the power button for 3 seconds. It would have made more sense to have a button that scrolls through the white LED modes, and another separate button that scrolls through the 3 colored LED modes. Lastly, I wish it was waterproof, not merely water-resistant.

I know that sounds like a lot of nit-picking, but in general I do like this light, and recommend it. It is solidly built, with a nice metal case.

Output, although bright, is well below what is claimed. I know these lumen outputs are peak outputs and will fade as the light gets hotter but the light output in this is weak even on intial start up use. For something that uses expensive CR123 batteries you would expect much better performance.

Power switch is intermittent, which I discovered after it's 2nd use. This has regulated it to be a backup base camp flashlight since I can't trust it out in the field. Unfortunately this was about three months after I bought this so I could no longer return it.

It does have multiple settings, which is nice but what good is it if you don't take it with you cause you don't trust it?

For the price and for using expensive CR123 batteries I was expecting much better performance. If this is your first high lumen light I'm sure it will look very bright but I have cheaper lights with lower lumen claims that outperform this and they use less expensive batteries. Being as it is, it's basically an expensive accessory for my bag. I would NOT trust this out in the field or for mission critical use.

      Comments about GSX™ 235 Lumen Tactical Handheld LED Flashlight:

      I liked the brightness and the ease of changing colors and especially the strobe light all in one light. I also liked getting the free batteries with the light. This will reduce my concern for battery life and raise my rating accordingly. This is just what I was looking for.

          this is a great product at a fair price. The beam is extremely bright with multiple settings including a rapid flash feature, which is blinding to a potential adversary.

                i'm using 3.6 volt and have no problem. I got them from e-bay and have used them for over a year. I bought a set of 800 mah then 1000 and NOW they have 1800! I always keep a spare set with me, but unless it's on high i get a few hours use out of it. Batteries and charger came out of china, so it's a few weeks, but under 12$

                Just guessing 115 since the lower light has twice the battery life of the 230.
