    Dissatisfied

    As an oversized load carrier that can only travel daylight hours, we are always getting ready in the dark. I bought three of these for myself and drivers. I had mine about two weeks, it worked great, but then I went to use it one morning and nothing. It had never gone dim, so I thought it must have accidentally been turned on and run the batteries down. I put brand new batteries in and still nothing. I checked the original batteries in another light, and they were good. I had not seen one driver to give him the one I bought him, so I opened and used it. Approximately two weeks later same problems. Very disappointed.

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

    Wish I never bought it!

    I had bought one of these and used it about 5-6 times for approximately a total of 4 hours. The light went dim, so I replaced the batteries, and the light never turned back on! It has a blinking red light on the back that’s giving some sort of error code, I but cannot find anywhere or anyone that has any idea what the code means. JUNK! A piece of CRAP! It cost me $35 at my local hardware store and they do not allow returns, so I am out the money. Real nice, creators of Atomic Beam!

    Atomic Beam flashlight

    I received my Atomic Beam flashlight and lighters in the mail today. I took the flashlight out of the packaging and put BRAND NEW AAA batteries in it per the directions and per common sense of how to correctly install batteries, and it DOESN'T work. I've tried installing the batteries in several different ways and still, it DOESN'T work. I've even taken other batteries out of one of my headlamps that DOES work and put them in my Atomic Beam flashlight and still, it DOESN'T work.

    I'm very disappointed in this product because it DOESN'T work straight out of the package and brand new.

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

    Junk switch but good light

    I have two of these now, took one back because of a bad switch. Yellow rubber switch cap would push down and into the housing. I called the number about it and English was not their first strong point. I sent an email or not to MFG and not that I expected a response. I do not think this flashlight is worth the money, I will keep my Coast or Maglite for an emergency because that's when you need to depend on it to WORK.

    Need an O-ring

    I love the flashlight, but when I changed the batteries, the O-ring had disintegrated. So I now have this waterproof light that's not so waterproof. I wish they would send me a new O-ring.

    Works well

    It is brighter than an LED flashlight with the regular battery. I haven't tried extreme tests on it. One thing it does, as with any flashlight, it flickers like something loose sometimes. Still better than other flashlights as far as brightness. There may be better and brighter lights out now, but this one works.

    Switch does not work well

    Bad quality of the switch. The rubber command of the switch does not stay in a good place.

    The switch works only sometimes, but there is a bad conception of the switch.

    Good quality of the body though, and the light beam is very strong when it works.

    Best small flashlight that I’ve ever owned.

    • Lawrenceburg, IN,

    I purchased six of these flashlights. One previous reviewer said that the mini mag lights are brighter than this light. That is absolutely incorrect. I’ve owned several of them and they are good flashlights (the mini mag) but unreliable. I won’t ever purchase another mini mag light. The Atomic Beam is several times brighter.

    I have had one issue with the switch coming loose. I purchase some heavy duty super glue and put the switch back in place, and it has remained in place for over a year. I agree that the manufacturer should find a better way to attach the switch, but it’s an easy fix if it does come loose. This light is the best mini flashlight I’ve ever owned. If you treat it properly, it will last a long time. I highly recommend them.

    Piece of junk and worthless

    • Nampa, ID,

    • Verified Reviewer

    So I got mine from Amazon. It took two and half weeks to get, and I don't know why. But anyways, I turn it on and sometimes it will turn on and sometimes it won't. When it does turn on, it will sometimes flash and sometimes will not be that bright. This this is a piece of junk. I spent like $35 for it and wasted my money. Never again will I get one of these.

    Works, but...

    It works quite well. It provides a bright light. It provides different options for hanging it.

    What I am disappointed in is that it appears to have no on and off switch. So after use, you need to open it, remove the batteries, and store them with the lantern.

    I am using it to brighten up a room that does not have enough lightning.

    The Atomic Beam

    • California,
    • Nov 22, 2017
    • Verified Reviewer

    I bought the headlight model because one night a coyote was around my dog and I. I had a regular handheld flashlight. So once my dog saw the coyote, she chased after it and I lost the hold on my flashlight, so the next day I when and bought the head flashlight. I used it almost every night.

    Well, one year later the thing stopped working. I put new batteries in it and the back part that shows the light should be on, but the light didn’t work. I tried to return it, but ace has a 90-day return policy.

    So I’m stuck with a useless flashlight.

    Now keep in mind I hardly used the thing in the summer because of daylight savings time. So it lasted six months.

    What a waste of money!

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