Short Review: I own hundreds of 18650 flashlights but last year I had the opportunity to test a Wuben light and was blown away by it’s build quality, it’s features, and most importantly it’s price! I was not let down by this one either!
1.) Very Bright – I can’t officially say 1200 lumens is what this puts out because I don’t have a meter, but I can say it’s bright! I’m sure it’s as advertised
2.) Waterproof with extra gaskets!
3.) Wonderful BUILD Quality!!
4.) High Quality and safe 18650 battery is included
5.) Can charge battery from USB, using the flashlight. No extra charger needed!
6.) Includes high quality lanyard
7.) Easy and well thought out user interface
8.) Under $30! That’s an amazing value!!!
Overall: I can say I do highly recommend this light if you want something BRIGHT.. not everyone needs these bright lights but they do come in handy at times.. This one performs well and is simple to use
1.) Id recommend buying an extra 18650 battery when you buy this.. on super bright mode you will probably need an extra battery.
The Beacon is a GREAT, very small, simple lantern! It uses the same batteries as Goal Zero Products (A dual polarity 18650 battery) and it charges in a snap!! Battery can be changed and extras can be purchased!! The USB cable is built in which makes it very simple to charge anywhere! No need or no worries about forgetting your cable or even bringing it with you. Quality is outstanding and this sucker is VERY BRIGHT!!! I would recommend this to anyone needing a simple light outdoors!!
1.) Remember, this doesn’t take NORMAL 18650 batteries.. It takes the Goal Zero version that is dual polarity! Search Goal Zero 18650 to find them
