  • I got this out of the back of a Maxim magazine...I know it's not much, but it's free, and very useful

    Small enough to fit in a tank bag, or maybe even under the seat!!

  • I guess I could clarify... They are bright, but flaky as a motherfucker... sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't, sometimes it comes on randomly, sometimes it won't come on at all, sometimes it works for two seconds, sometimes it stops working for two seconds and comes back on...

    I thought... 'hey, a flashlight is a flashlight is a flashlight'... so simple, how could it be shit? Well, Harbor Freight's supplier somehow found a way to make a ridiculously simple tool and make it a fucking flaming pile of shit.

    Sounds like a bad contact or solder joint. Fix it stupid.

    Yeah, probably.... I just grab another flashlight and finish whatever I'm doing... Then I make the mistake of grabbing one of those POS's the next time...

  • They have a 3-pack that goes on sale from time to time for $3.99

    I've got 9 of them for the house so I could have a flashlight in every room when needed.

    I agree that they aren't a surefire...but for $1.33 each they friggin rawk!

  • I have a ramp/tire changer/trailer from them

    I have done net advised mods to the tire changer and trailer. Both work great for relatively cheap in comparison to the high dollar alternatives.

  • I agree with OSP. I bought a 3 pack for cheap... 2 of them worked out of the package... and one of those died soon after. But I did get my free one the other day.
