Stanley Says Let There Be Light, and Lots Of It.

Have you ever had a situation where you needed more than one flashlight? I have, and usually it just so happens that I need it when I am under the sink or under the hood of the car. While I was on my way to the register at Lowe's, they knew what they were doing when the set this display of flashlights at the end of the isle. This new flashlight from Stanley will give you that extra hand, that you need to allow you to do several tasks without losing sight of the task at hand. You can keep light on your project without moving the light off of what you are doing. You may think that $25.00 is a bit too much to ask for a flashlight, but once you get this at home, you will see how valuable and futuristic this flashlight really is.

Description
This flashlight weighs a total of one pound 2.2 ounces and is just about 11 inches in length. You actually get three flashlights in one. What makes this standout from the rest is the fact that it is held together by a round cylinder with spring loaded legs. A magnet holds the legs closed and there is a spring loaded release button at the bottom, which when pressed will release the legs to stand out like a tripod. This button is actually just a metal ring sitting on a spring and the little tabs on each leg is where the magnets are. When the spring loaded button is pushed, the will open up, if you push this in an uneven manor all of the legs may not pop open. If you open this up evenly you will notice that the metal ring will separate from the magnets and the legs will come out by themselves. When the legs are opened up and the heads are bent down all the way, this stands 8.5" tall.

This is silver and black in color and each of the flashlights can be used independently of each other. If you remove one of these then the other two will work together. When these are in their holder all you have to do is push one switch for all of these to work. Each of these flashlights has an LED light and the head will flip down to a 90° position. When the heads are all in the straight up position, this is 3" across.

Each of the lights only weigh 4.4 ounces, and will take two AA batteries to operate. This does not come with any so you will have to purchase them and it is recommended that you use alkaline batteries, and do not mix alkaline and lithium. If you do mix these two types there is the possibility if these interacting and exploding.

If you are wondering about the brightness of the lights, they produce 20 lumens of light each.  Naturally the more Lumens that is produced the brighter the light. One lumen is equal to one candela, so this means that each light is as bright as 20 candles. If you look into the end where the LED is at, you will notice a 1/8" white chip that will produce a beam of light for you.

Experience
I think this is the greatest flashlight that I have ever purchased, this is actually four lights in one. You can either use them separately or all together which makes 4 different ways that you can use this. It comes in real handy when you are working in the basement or under a kitchen sink. Where else can you grab one tool and use it is so many different ways. Once you grab this it can be separated into individual units. This will work with the push of just one button, individually or in unison.

This is just a little bit on the bulky side but what it makes up in size it makes up in the quality of the light that it puts out. This is very durable and is shock resistant to an extent. I have dropped this and had it bumped around inside my tool bag, and it has still worked. I have had the same batteries inside of this flashlight for over six months. Usually batteries that sit inside of a regular flashlight will lose some juice, but these stayed just as bright as when the last time that I used it.

Conclusion
I can highly recommend purchasing one of these for yourself or as a gift. You will be amazed at how often that you use this once you get it home. It will become your favorite flashlight and all of your other flashlights will start to collect dust, because they will just sit on the shelf from not being used. Make a new friend with Stanley.
