I believe you register at Life Gear. Then you choose which product you bought, and where you bought it from.

See Here for info on how to use it. They will recycle their own batteries and send you new ones, you just pay shipping.

Do these have a metal case on the outside? The picture seems to show a black rubber like cover. It would matter for the application I'm interested in. Thanks.

Indeed, a metal one would make more noise when you accidentally drop it in the museum you are burglarizing.

I want these but its charging me shipping again. I thought woot only charges $5 shipping for all orders placed within the same day.

See This Thread

Once woot got a shopping cart, it was changed to $5 per order. The $5 was never meant to be permanent, and was always advertised as temporary.

That was before they came up with the shopping cart. Now you have to gather all your purchases in the cart before you check out. The entire order in the cart ships for $5 but once you check out the shipping charge resets. This is really no good for Woot! offs. Or days when the "one deal a day" site sells out and then offers another item for sale.
What say you Woot!? How bout allowing free shipping when the customer has already purchased the Woot! of the day and then after selling out Woot! presents a second Woot! Or, Woot Offs. (This might increase those impulse buys that Woot! Offs encourage) I have a feeling I would buy more if the shipping wasn't assessed every ~15 minutes during a Woot! Off

I keep seeing cool flashlight deals, but inevitably they all have some stupid series of "modes" you have to click through just to get to "bright" and then "off" again. It's annoying as hell.

I really hate this trend. I really wish you could still by cool, bright mini LED flashlights that are just ON/OFF without any gimmicky "modes" you have to cycle through every time. ARGH.

Coming from a flashlight hobby background, strobe gets obnoxious. It's a wonderful treat when you find a quality light that has "hidden" modes, which would contain strobe. You actually have to go through a certain sequence to activate those modes. But even that's more complicated than it's worth (and mostly not necessary).

I get that this is still a great deal for what should still be quality lights, but strobe is getting old. Two modes - high/low - is perfect. It's still nice to have low because it preserves battery life and high is just one click/press away.

I would have jumped all over these as gifts but there are other options around this price that don't include strobe.

It's almost certainly bare aluminum. Then the question is whether it's anodized or not. Anodizing would give it much better protection but it's only aesthetic.

When a light is coated or covered in a rubber material it can affect heat dissipation and the life of the LED emitter. However, it would probably be okay in a light of this size with the emitter it contains (should be XP-G)

Life+Gear's battery recycling program smells of green-washing. Their "handling" fees exceed the cost of buying new batteries.

To actually reduce the environmental impact of flashlight batteries, Life+Gear should offer rechargeable batteries for their flashlights.

It is anodized aluminum, that's how it's black. Bare aluminum would be silver.

Thanks,

I was thinking of buying these and now that I think of if it was an impulse lol. I already have a lot of these. I guess I can save my $10 :-)

Yes they are metal, and quite sturdy. I've purchased them twice (once was yesterday which i'm regretting since I could've saved $5 by getting them a few hours later) and I'm very happy with them.

It's a very useful feature if you're using it as a tac light. Strobing allows you to illuminate a bad guy enough to shoot them, while disorienting them with the light. This one serves pretty well, but I think most people looking to do something like that might aim at the higher end of the flashlight market.

Am I the only one that feels a little disappointed about buying these yesterday only to see them $5 cheaper today? I bought them a while ago, but things change over time. I bought another set last night at ten and by one am they were marked down.

Pretty poor service Woot...

Wow -- did the Dickies jacket that was today's deal sell out?

If so, isn't that the first time in a good while that the main woot item has sold out? Sorta like the old Woot -- it was actually a Great Deal that is affordable.

And, if today's original deal did sell out, what's up with replacing it with another 'deal'? That is not the Woot way!

Woot -- what kind of profit monster have ye become?

woot staff: are these packaged individually or in a single package? i'm wondering if i can buy several and give individual flashlights to different people (3 x 2 packs and give to 6 people). thanks!

I just keep buying more and more crap...

I get similar flashlights free with min $10 purchase coupons from Harbor Freight - including batteries.
They also regularly discount a 2 pack with one set of batteries for about $3.
Are these any different?

Ya, when I bought a couple of these a few weeks ago (for $5 more also) they "sold out". Now another batch seemed to drop out of the sky. Sheeessh! I'm in anyway...

The two I bought a couple weeks ago came 'loose' packed... each wrapped in their own bubble wrap. Nothing fancy.

reading this reminded me of a chuckle I got the other day reading a lady complaining she didn't get the free shipping advertised for orders over $86...when she had bought 8 purses for $20 each ( but put put each one in it's own separate shopping cart :-)...or something like that...sounded like a Blonde joke

I have many of these flashlights ( CREE ) they all come made with aircraft aluminum. I think plastic would melt especially 300 Lumen. ONLY BUY THE LIGHTS WITH A ON OFF BUTTON, WHICH IS A BIT HARD TO PUSH IN.WHEN THESE LIGHTS COME WITH A MIRCO PROCESSOR THAT SAYS "LOW BATTERY". THAT SENSOR DRAWS CONSTANT CURRENT OUT OF BATTERIES FAST. CATCH 22

Got mine delivered today and they look great. Didn't need the strobe though but the other two settings are nice and it's brighter than any other flashlight I currently have.
Good job Woot!

Keep on Wooting !!!

These are not even close to the DIME-A-DOZEN ones that Harbor and the other toss in for free. I had a doz of those and took them on a scout trip. By the end of the week we were down to 4 working.

I just got these and they look and feel WAY different. Much better quality.

The switch on this is one hit and you are a full -bright. then you can tap the other modes on or click again and it logbook off. You do not have to go through all the modes unless you really want to.

And if it comes on strobe instead of full bright, push the button all the way in and hold for a beat, next time it will come on full bright.
