This is currently my brightest flashlight I have ever encountered. The MS12 is extremely bright. The included carry-strap is not a luxury but a necessity. Without the carry strap your hands get tired rather quickly. The diameter of the battery pack and the front-heavy balance makes it a little hard to hold for a longer period of time. Check out the full review here: https://1lumen.com/21700-reviews/imalent-ms12/ The overall quality of the light is 5 stars. the price is however on the high side, and therefore the value (as asked here) not 5 stars since it's still pricey.
This is an incredible flashlight. It is a night and day difference from my old 500 lumen spotlight. The light seems to be constructed from high quality materials so it should last a long time. I was also very impressed with the service and shipping time from Imalent. My order arrived much quicker than expected for shipping from China to the US. I've had many orders take longer from other sites within the US.
Wow. This light is truly amazing. I live on a 30 acre open field and it lights up the entire thing. If you’re looking to own a chunk of the sun, here it is. This light is not only the brightest light I’ve ever seen, it’s also beautifully crafted with high quality material. The flashlight is heavy so I recommend using the provided shoulder strap. I also wish it came with a hard case for storage and for protection. The built in cooling fan is a great feature because this light gets EXTREMELY hot while in use. If you want the best, look no further. Imalent is the way to go.
