    Smith & Wesson Aluminum Flashlight with Xenon Bulb [3]

    Product Reviews   
    This flashlight appeared in stores in 2004 as a competitor to the Maglite flashlight carried by law enforcement officers and security guards. The Smith and Wesson label seemed to guarantee that it would be the future flashlight of choice for police officers and would supplant the Maglite.

    From the packaging: With a brilliant white Xenon bulb, it's almost 200% brighter than any other globe on the market. It's also contained within weatherproof and corrosion resistant Aerospace Anodized Aluminium, with a shatterproof lens. Limited Lifetime Warranty

    Unfortunately, this flashlight could not survive a three foot drop onto carpet by a two year old child. A spring inside broke loose and rendered it useless. The flashlight comes apart revealing a spare bulb under the lens and a locking ring which allows you to remove the head. Unfortunately, the inner workings are screwed in so tight, there is no access to the switch mechanism to even make it workable again.

    This light appears to be off the market and is no longer available at retail outlets.

    Stick with your Maglite Flashlights (or torches as they are called outside the U.S.) This review applies to all these Models:

    (Batteries/Color/Model Number)
    2D Black SW825BK
    2D Blue SW825BL
    2D Red SW825RD
    3D Black SW835BK
    3D Blue SW835BL
    3D Red SW835RD
    4D Black SW845BK
    4D Red SW845RD
    4D Blue SW845BL
    5D Red SW855RD
    5D Black SW855BK

    Note that these lights are actually manufactured by Powertech of Collierville Tennessee under license by Smith & Wesson. They upheld the warranty by offering to send a replacement light.

    I did receive the replacement flashlight. It is unreliable. I have to mess with the caps to get it to shine. I hate this miserable piece of crap. There is no way I can count on it to work if I need it. There is a reason that they are no longer available.
