(Product Review) AYL TF89 Bright 900 Lumens CREE XML T6 LED Tactical Torch Flashlight
Reading the description I was pretty sure that I would like the AYL TF89 Bright 900 Lumens CREE XML T6 LED Tactical Torch Flashlight. It has lots of great features including 5 modes, a zoom lens with adjustable focus, and is water resistant.
The water resistance is very important to me because I really need a light that can be used in wet conditions. Now that I have had a chance to test this flashlight, I love it even more than I thought I would.
The body of this flashlight is very solid. It has a good weight to it, and feels very sturdy. I am certain that this flashlight isn't going to be falling apart on me like so many others have done.
I absolutely love that it water resistant and can be used in all sorts of weather. Obviously you don't want to try using it under water, but it has no problems with a hefty rainstorm like we had here a few nights ago. I had to run outside for something and took this light along. It held up nicely without any problems.
Switching the flashlight between modes is quick and easy. It has a push button, which can be pressed or tapped to switch between modes quickly and easily. It has 5 different modes including High, Medium, Low Beam, Strobe and an SOS function.
I really like that it is zoomable, so you can focus in on something, or zoom out to cover a wider area with your beam of light. It comes with an attached wrist strap and a clip for securing it in place. This will be a handy item for a variety of purposes including home, travel, power outages, car, bugout bag, emergency preparedness and more.
It is powered by 3 AAA batteries which are not included, but are readily available at most stores. This is honestly the only con I could find with this flashlight, and it really isn't a big one since these batteries are so easy to find. In fact, I usually keep a few rechargeable batteries of this size around my house for emergencies.
Although I got this product at a discount or received a complimentary sample in exchange for my honest review, all thoughts and opinions on the products I review are always my own and have not been influenced by any discounts or samples which may have been provided to me for testing purposes.
