Brightness light I ever had. However after two weeks of use, the high mode was not working. First I thought the battery, then I said to myself, no way. I only had it for two weeks. And it was only used about 5 different days for a short time. So I sent it back to galls and they sent me a knew one. And guess two weeks later same thing. It is the batteries. And the batteries are not cheap. Depending where you go they run about $8.00-11 dollars. And that's just for one. The light takes two. You might as well spend a little more and just get a rechargeable light. Batteries plus store does have a pack of 12 batteries for about $26 dollars. A lot better deal. I would of gave it 5 stars if it wasn't for the low battery life.
