    I have bought 3 of these. I was extremely skeptical, its a no name brand, something chinese, being shipped from hong kong.
    But since they normally sell for $10 SHIPPED, I took a chance.
    Trust me, these are the best $10 lights you will find.
    Both the regular model or the one with the extra bike holder you can
    throw away are the same flashlight.

    Absolutely blows away the Coast lenser I bought for triple the price.
    Just giving a heads up on a steal, use it or ignore, but these lights are cheap and powerful. On regular AAA batteries.
    Do the "look at all seller's items" to find more. He sells out fast and then gets more in every month.

    I bid on the "bike models" and throw away the extra attached holder. Seems like since it says bike it gets less bidders.

    I'm having good results with Maglight's 3 watt LED. I have a 2 AA mini and a 2 D cell light. So far, so good. Really bright and not very expensive. Check them out on Ebay. I don't think you'll be disappointed with them.

    Nah don't do the buy it now. He has buy it now ones and auction bid ones.
    The auction bidder ones rarely go over $10 bucks. Especially the bike models. Most people drop out around $9.
    Of course now that I let the secret out of the bag...:wavey:
