Review: GMETAL-5 Dual Function Lantern Flashlight

All my life, there have been flashlights everywhere - in arm's reach almost always. Now, this stems mostly from my grandfather, who was obsessed with flashlights (and pocket knives). Growing up on a ranch, flashlights were essential because work did not always stop at 5 p.m. Many times, it would extend well into darkness. Thus, a flashlight would come in really handy.

   So, when an opportunity to test out a new flashlight came along, I took it. Because right now, I only have one flashlight. I NEED MORE! Unfortunately, this flashlight does not fit the bill. The light is very bright and it is rechargeable with a USB, but the construction of the flashlight is poor.
   When it arrived, it was neatly packed in its own cute box. But, upon inspection, my husband found that the USB plug for the flashlight was damaged. My husband took is apart to fix it, but was unable to do so. He is an aviation mechanic. He's very handy. If he can't fix it, I don't think it's salvageable. Which means that once this particular flashlight's charge is used up, I will have to toss it. Because there is no recharging. I don't know if this happened with the company or with the shipping, but either way, not too happy.
Full disclosure: I was sent this product free of charge in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.
