Being a flashlight geek I was curious about this flashlight. I have had it a month now and it is pretty amazing.The 700 foot beam is a bit of a stretch,but my driveway is 500 feet long and it will throw a beam to the end of it and then some. Haven't used it enough to know if the 3 hour run time is accurate.The light is INTENSELY bright and I believe the srobe setting would at least slow down an attacker if necessary.On wide beam it will light up a very large area. The 3.7 volt batteries are kind of hard to find locally,the local Batteries + didn't have them and couldn't even order them. They are readily available online at several different sourses including Amazon and Ebay and are not expensive.About $3 apieceThe built-in charger is a big plus.It comes with one 1800Mah battery and I have ordered several 3,000Mah batteries which should boost the run time by a factor of 2. I have also ordered several 4,000Mah batteries which should increase the operating time even further.Build quality seems to be good if not great.All in all a class flashlight and I have owned a few.Just don't look directly into the light as it will temporarily blind you!
