    Worked for 1 minute

    • Cape Coral, FL,
    • Dec 5, 2016

    Purchased this light, brought it home, put the batteries in and it worked for about 1 minute. I turned it off, felt the switch break and now will not turn on. Taking it back and exploring other options.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Not as advertised.

    I have a couple of different brands of high output flashlight. Atomic beam is nothing special. You can by a light at WalMart for less. Is it tough? Well, I haven't thrown it out of a helicopter yet, not smashed it with a brick. It seems tough I guess.

    I am glad I got mine as a gift. Wouldn't buy it for me.

    Atomic beam flashlight

    • Washington,
    • Jan 4, 2017
    • Verified Reviewer

    I bought one at Walgreens and the lens fell out after a week. I took it back and they exchanged it. After I had it for about a week, something happened to it where it would not turn on, and they wouldn't exchange it this time. I think this is crap.

    Load of crap

    • Montana,

    • Verified Reviewer

    First of all, the commercial shows the light being taken out of hot oil, but how is this possible with plastic parts?

    We bought it out of curiosity, and well, we put batteries in, turned it on and off twice, and the switch pushed in and broke. It never worked again. Yes, the light was nice and bright, before it broke.

    Don't waste your money, its a piece of crap.

    Atomic flashlight

    The button on the two Atomic flashlights that I bought, (and one was given to me as a gift) either work improperly, come apart when you change the battery, or break altogether. It is bright when it does work though.

    Never again

    Scam!

    I bought this flashlight, put some high output batteries in it, and it never has once turned on. I noticed that a little spring, which was cheaply sauntered into it, wasn't attached. I have tried to reach the company through phone and email, with never receiving an answer or response.

    Switch broke

    • Ohio,
    • Jan 12, 2017
    • Verified Reviewer

    The switch broke on mine. I used it a few times the first week that I got it. Now, the switch has gone crazy on me.

    As you try it, it goes off, on, off. Then off, on, flash slow, off. Then off, on, flash slow, flash fast, off. Then off, on, flash slow, flash fast, on, on, on, on, on and then you have to hit it a few times to get it to shut off. When you push the button, you can feel that the button has moved inwards. When I take the bottom off to look at the batteries, the switch falls out.

    After you put it back together, it works alright once or twice, and then it starts acting up again. It is a piece of trash.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Bell and Howell Atomic Beam flashlight

    • Ashton, IA,
    • Jan 13, 2017
    • Verified Reviewer

    This light did not live up to my expectations from their advertising. The tail switch went into the light and came apart, and so far I have not found a diagram as to how to put it back together. After the first few uses, it does not seem as bright on any setting. It doesn't correspond to my memory of Bell & Howell as being a good quality company.

    If anyone knows where I can see a diagram of the tail switch, please advise here.

    Total scam

    This is a cheap product that doesn't deliver anything advertised. I dropped it from my roof (approximately 24 feet), and the LED stopped working as it bounced on the ground. The claims that the 5,000 lumens are so bright it can light the front of a house at 50 feet is a bald-faced lie. I couldn't find any component that it was made in the USA. It is the biggest scam on TV, do not buy.

    Bad light

    This product claims to be able to withstand whatever you throw at it, well, I beg to differ on that.

    The yellow button is as cheap as it gets, I have used it twice and cannot even keep it in. The groove where it sits keeps falling thru, which means there goes the waterproofing. As far as freezing it and it staying on, we will never know because I know for sure the button will not hold up. And don't take it in the pool, or you are just out the 30 bucks it took to get it to you.

    Just as well buy a cheap $5 one so you are not upset about having to get a new one when you break it! I give it one star only because I have to in order to tell you all about it.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Disappointed

    I purchased my Atomic Beam at Walmart, and within one week had an infuriating experience.

    The clicker on the end of the handle that turns in off and on collapsed into the cylinder. I took it apart and put it back together, and the very next time I used it, the exact same thing happened. Again I repaired it, and with the next use, the same thing happened again.

    The beam is bright enough, but as for being a tough flashlight, this simply is not the case. Maybe the one I bought was the one they dropped out of the helicopter!

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
