Only Brinkmann light to fail on me while on duty, at night. Metal bodied Brinkmann 2D or 3D cell lights are better; I know, I have two of them and use them regularly. Plastic is lighter in weight, but not tough enough for severe use. Sorry Brinkmann.

i spent 30$ for one of these lights and it inexplicably gave up the ghost on me while i was using it as my primary light while exploring a cave.
it started working again when i got home.
lucky i had spares.
i gave it away and bought a maglight.

One of my first flashlights. I went to the store when I was seventeen after seeing my friend with a 2AA MiniMag, and although I could afford the MiniMag, I decided to see if this Brinkmann 2AA light would do the job as well.

Even with premium batteries in it, it wasn't very bright. I used it to walk these wooded trails at night, and it 'just' lit up a few feet in front of me....and not much more. It did have a 'spot to flood' function, but after the tailcap cracked, and the T1 bulb burnt out, I decided to throw it out. What a dissapointment.

Brinkmann, Brinkmann. Come on!
