6 months agoDurability3 / 5Reliability3 / 5Ease Of Use4 / 5Value4 / 5Would You Recommend?NoThe Captain’s light is ok as a second backup flashlight - not a standalone lightI have reservations about using the Captain’s light as a sole emergency backup light for a total electrical failure at night. While the aluminum exterior case is fine, I don’t like the quality of the internal plastic battery carrier.
I use a Surefire Aviator as my primary cockpit emergency light. It’s bulletproof. The Captain’s light is an ok second emergency light. I wouldn’t recommend it as a sole emergency light.May 8, 2019Purchased

7 months agoDurability5 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance5 / 5Ease Of Use4 / 5Value5 / 5Would You Recommend?YesGood lights.Strong light. Single LED on captains light is great in low light after eyes have adapted. Full white is not as bright as I thought it would be but more that enough for looking at the plane in pre-flight.
The hands-free light is very bright in both the red and white lights. Contrary to the description there is no was to turn on just one of the red LEDs, it is either two reds or 7 whites. Serves as a good was to illuminate the entire panel and clip it to your shirt or seat belt. It is Better made than others of the same design I have owned. I clip it to the side of the captains light's case and then strap the whole thing to the side of my flight bag. Works great.
Why did they feel the need to freeze one in a block of ice I wonder?April 2, 2019Purchased

Smith & Wesson Hands Free LED Light and Captain’s LED Flashlight make a great combination. Either one of them will light up all of the objects needed but you should never go without a backup!February 21, 2019Purchased

- Question and Answer
Browse 3 questions Browse 3 questions and 4 answersDoes the hands free flashlight attach well to a kneeboard?BEST ANSWER: Not a bad idea so I tried it. I tried the side pen holder for the Flyboy kneeboard and it doesn't quite fit. The pen holder is just a little bit too small for the flash light to fit the pen and pencil holders. It would be nice if the kneeboard people could adjust the loops to accommodate the flashlight, so it could be stuck in the pen holder and directed on the kneeboard.How many lumens on the Captain light?BEST ANSWER: Smith and Wesson's website lists this model as the Galaxy 12 LED flashlight; white light rated at 24 lumens and the red light listed at 5 lumens. It's a terrific light for pre-flighting or hunting "runaway" items in the cockpit!How do you replace the batteries in the captains flight light?BEST ANSWER: Simply unscrew and remove the knurled cap on the butt-end of the flashlight, then remove the three-battery cartridge of AAA batteries. Replace the batteries in the cartridge RETAINING THE PROPER END-FOR-END ORIENTATION OF EACH ONE (the cartridge has embossed directions showing which end the positive anode points), then reinsert the cartridge and replace the cap.
