Rayovac....Picking a flashlight to suit your needs (A Review)


I must say we are spoiled rotten! The choices for any single given product in the market are numerous. Take for instance the flashlight. No longer do you go to the store and just buy any flashlight. There are flashlights to suit practically any requirement and thanks to Rayovac, I will introduce you to four very similar but feature-istically (if there ever were such a word) different flashlights.

Remember my Rayovac vs Maglite post?
Well this time round we will be looking at
(listed in l-r order according to the picture below)

The Buzz:

The Rayovac Sportsman XTREME Mini High Powered LED Flashlight is one of my favorites among the 4 for design, sleekness and compactness.

This flashlight runs on 3 AAA batteries and is said to be able to function on Mode 1 at 80 lumens for about 6 hours and on Mode 2 at 30 lumens for 22 hours. The anodized aluminum body is water resistant, withstands the 9 foot drop test and is extremely convenient to just slip into one's purse, in its little holder, for those lonely walks back to your home.

For the price this is definitely worth the money spent.

The Rayovac Roughneck 200 Lumen Metal Flashlight on the other hand makes up for its slightly heavier overall look with its strong performance beam power.

This flashlight also works on 3 AAA batteries and offers the user the options to use the same with 200 lumens on high beam mode, 70 lumens on a low beam and a flickering "spot to flood" mode.

While this is another "easy to carry along in the handbag", durable flashlight, I have to add that the jagged edges on the same have bruised my knuckles on more than one occasion. Functionality wise though, I think this would be great to use especially during those camping trips in the great outdoors as the focus brightness is sharp and covers a wide expanse when shone into the distance.

The Rayovac Sportsman Xtreme 2 Watt Focus Flashlight is a more pricey flashlight that works on 2 AA batteries, on 3 modes and is said to be the brightest in the Sportsman XTREME line at 100 lumens. The LED is said to never need replacing.

While the lightweight, more slender appearance is appealing, I personally feel that this is perhaps not as great a pick as the earlier two especially when you look at it in terms of the price being spent, the brightness and the length of time this can successfully run. (5 hours)

And finally, we have the Rayovac Roughneck 120 Lumen LED Focus Control Flashlight, the largest of the 4 flashlights.

Though it is said to only be 120 lumens in brightness strength, in actuality the same does seem much brighter. The flashlight requires 4 AA batteries for functionality and works on three modes- high, low and "soft to flood" beam.

While this works great considering all aspects, I only wish they'd made this lighter in overall structure.

So there you have it 4 great Rayovac it's upto you to pick the one that would suit your needs the best!
