Some consumers have questioned brightness and visibility claims made in connection with the marketing of Bell and Howell “tactical” flashlights.
The flashlights are priced around $20.00, are made in China, and are powered with three AAA batteries. The claims made about the power of the Bell & Howell tactical flashlights on Amazon and HSN are impressive:
- “22x brighter than your regular flashlight”
- “2 nautical mile visibility”
- “Up to 40 times brighter than standard incandescent flashlights”
- “can be seen 5 nautical miles away”
If Bell + Howell’s claims exaggerate the power of their tactical flashlights, these flashlights may be falsely advertised.
If you purchased a Bell and Howell tactical flashlight, we are interested in hearing from you.
