I live in the country and bought this flashlight so I could see a great distance. It was truly as bright as advertised. I have literally turned it on three times since I bought it in February. I needed it the other night and turned it on only to find out that it is as bright as a small keychain flashlight. I didn't realize the batteries cost $12 each. I don't have a problem spending $24 for batteries as long as they would last a lot longer than three times of being turned on. I am going to replace the batteries and if I have the same issue I will not be able to recommend this product.

I have had my Scirrako for just over a year now, it's use is somewhat infrequent â€” which is likely typical for a flashlight (unless one works in security, etc). That said, I have not changed the batteries (or recharged them) and the light is still very bright and powerful! I go camping two or three times a year, and that is when it sees the heaviest use. It is VERY bright â€” perhaps too bright sometimes! Still, there's no finer feeling than when someone pulls out their 6-cell Mag light and their beam is completely washed away by my much smaller Scirrako! Flashlight envy! Overall, the unit has performed well, the only gripes I have are: 1) too bright, even on the "low" (say if you need an up-close light or reading), 2) Sometimes the rubber-covered on/off/setting button will stick and I'll end up strobing when I just want it on. I highly recommend this light if you need a small, powerful beam light. It has a nice wash around the beam and shoots amazingly far!
