Pros:Sleek design, durable construction, flood-to-spot control, easy to use & store, accepts rechargables

Cons:Can be hard to open to change batteries

The Bottom Line: In the hand, it looks and feels like a sleek work of art.


The Duracell Daylite 2C 4W 160 Lum LED Flashlight is the slightly thinner little brother of the Duracell Daylite 2D LED Flashlight.  The Duracell Daylites enter the dynamic quality flashlight market competing directly with the slightly more expensive Energizer Professional/Industrial Hard Case LED Flashlights.  The Duracell Daylite line is all aircraft aluminum, whereas the Energizers have drop-tested plastic with steel plates.  Both come with batteries and full warranty.

The Duracell Daylites take a lot of their form and function cues from the MAG line of flashlights, while the Energizer Hard Case line takes a much more unique approach.
 
Duracell gave the Daylite flashlights a flood-to-spot twist control to attract the flashlight enthusiast.  The spot setting does make the center brighter, but I would not say there is a great, great difference when used indoors.  There is more of a difference when using outdoors at longer distances.

At the 100% "spot" setting, the Duracell Daylite 2C 4W LED Flashlight can throw a beam of light 100 feet just fine.  At the full "flood", the Duracell Daylite 2C Flashlight fills a room with light pretty well when aimed up at a white ceiling.  However, I would not say that the Duracell Daylite gives a perfect cone of even light as demonstrated on the official Durecell web site.  It is not a professional TV scoop light.  The Duracell Daylite will cast a "hard" light regardless of flood or spot setting.

The Duracell Daylite 2C LED Flashlight looks like it was designed by an artist rather than serious hunters, security guards, or a group of construction workers.  The bad is the Daylite's battery cap has no ribbing to help grasp it.  If the cap is ever stuck, or if a person is wearing slippery cotton gloves or has motor oil soiled hands, it will be very difficult to open it up to change batteries.  The copper color smooth metal cap looks good (it looks just like a Duracell battery), but the cap is not practical.

What is good about the design of the Duracell Daylite 2C LED Flashlight is it is slimmer and less heavy than the bigger 2D version, yet it has the exact same brightness.  It is easier to hold for long periods compared with the bigger 2D.  Also, the bottom end of the Duracell Daylite 2C LED Flashlight is slightly flaired to allow the flashlight to be turned on and set pointing up.  It can be easily set on top of a flat table or desk pointing up at the ceiling to light up a small room.

Also, the grasp area of the aluminum has a fine diamond etching carved into it so that the flashlight can be held in one hand without slipping. 

There are "flashaholics" or "flashlight freaks" out there who collect many $100+ flashlights.  The Duracell Daylite can throw light farther than no-name low priced LED flashlights, but not as far as the top-line $100+ flashlights.  

The Duracell Daylites have solid heavy contruction.  The 2C could be used in a pinch as a defensive weapon as a heavy metal object (although the 2D would be a heftier choice).  However, security minded folks will likely want a 4-cell (or so) club-like flashlight.

The Duracell Daylite 2C LED Flashlight is rated at 4 watts and 160 lumens.  160 lumens is brighter than average in the universe of LED flashlights.  It is able to use NiMH rechargable batteries (the newer "pre-charged" types are suggested).  It has a lifetime warranty from Duracell.  It does not look or feel like a cheap no-name flashlight.

Another nice thing is the Duracell Daylite 2C LED Flashlight is sold at retailers which accept coupons and/or offer free shipping, so it makes it easier to buy.
