Really a good C3 tool

This is a really great flashlight to keep around the house.  I prefer the flourescent C3 light for working in small spaces, but this is a great flashlight which uses the C3 battery and it lasts a very long time.  I have this light on standby for use at night, camping, or during blackouts because the C3 batteries do last quite a long time.  It's very bright and I've yet to be disappointed with this flashlight.

I highly recommend adding this light to your arsenal of flashlights around the house.  I guarantee that you'll be reaching for this one first.

Marginal performer...

I've owned the Craftsman C-3 LED High Intensity Flashlight for several months.   I remain disappointed by the level of light output compared to other LED lights I've tried.

Worse, when using this flashlight at night, stray light from the top of the reflector housing causes a glare into the user's sight.  Not only is this design flaw distracting, it limits what the user is able to see in the illumination field.

The ergonomics of the handle are poorly done...  the handle needs to be longer to counter the weight of the battery being in front of the user's hand...  we're talking center of gravity stuff here.

On a positive note, I found it useful during a recent weather related power failure.   With the Lithium Ion battery installed and the reflector rotated up towards the ceiling, this light will provide a long duration low level illumination of an entire room.

The 19.2 volt Lithium Ion battery deserves a better LED light...  Craftsman should go back to the drawing board and re-engineer this product.   In comparison, the MagLite 2 D cell LED flashlight will blow this one out of the water where well focused and bright light output are concerned.

If Sears could combine the lighting package of the above MagLite product with their Craftsman Lithium Ion C3 battery...  ;- )

Love It !!

I was skeptical when I got it and boy was I impressed. this thing is bright and it lasts a really long time on the lithium ion batteries. I would really recommend to anyone wanting a bright long lasting light. I am going to buy several more.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

BULB LIFE SHORT AT BEST

Though, while it worked, this was a very good flashlite the bulb failed within a week of purchase. Sears replaced that lite and the replacement lasted almost a year before the bulb failed again. This happened despite NO rough treatment. It appears that the bulb is non-replaceable, and sears won't honor the guarantee as I can't supply proof of purchase for this gift. Perhaps the country of manufacture should have been a hint as to the quality of this item.

A must have tool if you already have other C3 tools!

This light has a narrow beam which makes it great to use as a flashlight. It has a nice bright beam that will illuminate objects clearly for up to a hundred feet away (or more). If you already have a C3 battery, this light makes a great supplement to your tool arsenal. If you're looking for a light for working on projects or lighting a room, the C3 19.2 volt fluorescent light is a better choice. However, this light would still do the job in a pinch. I have both and find that they both are great for their intended purpose. I've read other reviews which state that the handle is a little too short and the balance could be a tad better. I've found this to be true on both counts. However, overall, I've found this light to be well worth having.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Handy light!

I purchased this one to replace one that I bought last march. I lost the sale ticket on the other one and it died. Can't get warranty with out the ticket. Soooooo, I bought another and am keeping the ticket. Now, the good part. This is a very handy light. Bright, battery lasts forever and can be parked almost anywhere while working and using the light. I work on motorcycles as a hobby and this light helps me a lot. Could have a magnet to help hold it in place sometimes, but, I have worked with the so- called 3rd hand magnetic trouble lights in the past, and the magnet was a nuisance, at least in automotive applications. So, I guess I can live with out a magnet and improvevise as best I can. Would I recommend this light? YES!!

I would recommend this product to a friend.
