While at Sam's Club today, I found a new flashlight, in sporting goods. It is called the K2 Element and comes 2 to the packet. They are about 5 1/2 inches long and made from aluminium, dark gray in color. They use 3 AAA batteries, which is included. Boy do they throw a beam and the beam is adjustable. The bulb is good for 50,000 hours. The price is $28.95 for 2.

They must have upgraded the flashlight. I bought mine some time ago and my beam isn't adjustable. However, it is still one great flashlight for the money.

Yeah, I just saw those this morning at Sam's. They had 2 different models of Element flashlights. One that threw an 80 lumen beam and another that threw a 150 lumen beam. On 3 AAA batteries, those things will last 20 hours.

NICE!!!

I will be purchasing myself a package (2) of those this week.

Holy shnikees!

The power went out at our house tonight because some schmuck ran over our power box up by the church and totally demolished 2 fences as well. Anyhoo, when the lights went out I grabbed the K2 and WOW!

150 lumens is plenty bright and those batteries will last for 20 hours. For $28 for 2 flashlights, these things are a steal. They will go with me on every hunting/backpacking/hiking trip henceforth.

I know it has been two years since this thread was last responded to but I feel I should respond to it now that I have had these flashlights for, well, two years.

I would not buy this flashlight again if given the chance. Both flashlights have broken at least twice, specifically the battery holder. Both have had the top button break off. I glued it back down but they broke again. This time to fix it I drilled out the holes and epoxied in metal brads and then epoxied the top button down again. This has held so far. The latest was the "legs" on the battery holder. Two of them have broken. The epoxy is drying as I type this out.

I have not been rough with them, never dropped them or mishandled them, but the next time I consider a new flashlight, it will not be an Element K2 for $15. It will be something much more durable.
