The Volcano 980 Lumen Camping LED Flashlight from Vulta features a CREE XM-L2 LED that produces a maximum of 980 lumens. It has three output levels: 30, 220, and 550 lumens, plus 980 lumens in turbo mode. The intelligent on/off switch remembers the flashlight's setting so that when it is switched off and on again it will default to the last brightness level used.

The flashlight's aluminum body has a Mil Spec Type III hard-anodized finish with a stainless steel bezel. A tempered glass lens is impact and scratch resistant, while an orange peel reflector provides simultaneous spot and flood beams. It also features an anti-slip textured body and an anti-roll design. Waterproof and impact resistant up to 6.5', the Volcano 980 is ideal for harsh conditions. It runs on four AA batteries, and the battery carrier can be inserted in either direction. A MOLLE compatible holster, lanyard, and spare O-ring are included with the Volcano 980.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great!... but limited use. Over all this is a nice flashlight to have around and I certainly don't regret buying it but I also think it's fairly inconvenient for my purposes and over the top for most peoples needs. I'm in the film industry and need to have a flashlight handy on set and it's not really suited for that purpose. First, it's quite large; a little bigger than a D cell battery in width witch makes it a little too big to carry comfortably in your pocket. If you want to carry it with you you'll most likely be using the belt pouch it comes with. Second, it's bright... 'Very' bright. At it's max setting it's just under a thousand lumens. If you're on a dark set and whip out a thousand lumen flashlight you're gonna get dirty looks from the camera department. You'll most likely be using it on the low setting (30 lumens) or moonlight mode (1 lumen). It's great that you can change the intensity but if you're only using it on the lowest settings then it's probably a better idea to save your money and get a cheaper flashlight that's not so bright. Third, it's picky about the batteries you use. I put some Duracell Quantums in it and they failed after about twenty minuets of use. I'm now using Eneloop rechargeables in it and it works fine. I'm getting over an hour of solid use on the highest setting. It's just a little inconvenient not being able to run it on disposable batteries if you need to. And fourth, it gets really hot. If you leave it on the highest setting for any length of time it becomes quite uncomfortable to hold. I haven't been able to measure exactly how hot it gets but it's definitely over a hundred fahrenheit. With all that said, I do still like this flashlight and will be giving it a lot of use. I'm in Arizona and I'm going into a shoot soon that'll be out doors at night. the fact that the light is so bright with a fairly wide beam means it'll come in quite handy when making sure there aren't any rattle snakes waiting for us coiled up in our cords and bags witch has been known to happen. The flashlight getting so hot isn't an issue as long as you avoid the highest setting. I'll be using it in the low and moonlight modes most often witch will also give great battery life so long as you use batteries it likes as I stated above. Over all a great flashlight with great build quality but I can't recommend it to any one in the film or photography industries. There are flashlights out there that are much better suited for that. It's advertised as a camping flashlight and it's probably best used as such. The brightness and emergency features built into it would be great for campers and hunters.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value - superb flashlight I'm an audio/video contractor. I had never heard of this brand but decided to give it a shot. Here's what I considered, almost 1000 lumens, under $80, uses standard AA batteries, two separate switches - one for power on and the other for switching between modes, and it seemed to be ruggedly built. The case is decent. It provides a broad bright beam of light and it illuminates what I need to see. I also really like the moonlight mode of only 3 lumens. That way you can turn it on and not disturb others around you. I love the versatility. Very pleased. Superb flashlight!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOW! Who knew that such a small flashlight could be so bright. I bought this on the recommendation of Moose Peterson (wildlife photographer) and boy was I surprised when I turned it on last night. Having recently moved from the city to a 40 acre farm, I needed a flashlight to light my path when putting the animals up at night. My old maglight just wasn't cutting it and I had almost stepped on a cottonmouth a couple of times. I got this yesterday and when I used it last night all I could say was Wow! It was almost like daylight. The light spread was good for my needs and the adjustable brightness was an added bonus so I could actually turn it down so the light bounceback from the fence didn't blind me. Just for grins, I pointed it out to the open field and boy was I surprised to see all of the different sets of eyes staring back at me that I had never noticed before. This is the coolest flashlight I have EVER owned. About the only downside is that there is no way to focus the beam wider or more narrow, but I don't think I'll miss that feature.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bright! The way it should be. This little guy packs a punch and with multiple settings, it is great. Very solid. I can use this not only with my camera gear but for around the house use. I might get another one for my car. You can see everything at night. Ideal flashlight.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bright Light! Bought this very bright light gor camping & SAR. It is like a spotlight in high mode, and has SOS mode & strobe too. Lower levels of light make it a very practical flashlight for outdoors use. Not as expensive as the others, quality is excellent. A big step up from the usual flashlights.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small and powerful! Small enough to fit (most) pants pockets, but very powerful. I have used it for lightpaiting, and to lighten up scenes to properly focus before the shot.
