The LightStar series from TerraLUX is a diverse and exciting line of torches that offers everything you want from a light that you'll use every day, but with build standards and outputs that you might not expect from an AA powered light. You might not have thought that your next work light would be AA powered, but you'll want to give the LightStar 185 by TerraLUX some serious consideration. The LightStar 185 is the original Tactical light from TerraLUX. The build, case material, and interface are ready for tactical applications and real abuse. The specs might not be as high as the more recently LightStar lights or brand new, cutting edge tactical flashlights, but at this price you'd be hard pressed to find an AA light with such power and durability. You're getting a light powered by two convenient, easily purchasable AA batteries, that still pumps out 185 lumens of light and 24 hours of continuous use on low mode.

Excellent warm color flashlight for technicians
December 9, 2014
The high setting is reasonably bright, and the low setting is excellent for many uses. This flashlight is excellent for technician, computer builders, phone technicians, IT Server technicians who need to read technical diagrams that are color coded or wiring and plugs that are color coded. The warm color is easy on the eyes and the low setting is excellent for book reading too. Colors really stand out under the warm light.
Excellent high-CRI light
January 11, 2013
This is a great light for a variety of uses where you want to be able to render colors accurately. \"CRI\" stands for \"Color Rendering Index\", and the \"high CRI\" label is not just hype--it really works. I have attached it to a headband, and use it in place of a headlamp when I am working on wiring or when I need to read technical diagrams that are color coded. Subtle differences in colors really stand out. My previous LED headlamp was terrible in that regard. The beam from this light is very well formed, with a nice bright center area and a very smooth transition to a wide spill zone--a great mix of spot and flood. The high setting is reasonably bright, and the low setting is ideal for many uses. The warm color of the light also makes it easier to read black-on-white text. (For some reason I have less eye strain when using a warm-tinted light to read normal text.) In fact, I find the warm beam color to be better overall for indoor use. Objects just look better with this light in comparison with a cooler light. I now own two of these, and they are my go-to lights for use around the house.
