DIYBEAM-B- This is a 4 C cell LED flashlight and think of it as more of a lantern as it has a handle with the on-off-dim switch in the handle. This lantern has a nice feel and balance to it and has a good design. You can supposedly drop it up to 15 feet ( Impact resisting internal engineering) and it is water resistant (IPX-4) which means you can use it in the rain or splash situations, but might not work immersed in water..
The device is 5 ½ inches by 5 inches high and 3 inches wide. Without the handle on top it is 3 inches high. The bottom is flat as is the butt and front where the light is. You could set it on the bottom (will shine horizontal) or the butt (will shine vertically) . It weighs less than 2 pounds.
As mentioned the handle on the top has the on-off-dim switch. When you turn it on it is 150 lumens and hit it again for the dim switch and it is 50 lumens. The company claims on high beam it is useful for over 300 yards and in the dim mode almost 200 yards. The run time is 20 hours on full power 78 hours on the dim power with alkaline batteries (which are supplied), the company claims. The flashlight standards, however, say the run times are when the light intensity is down to only ten percent. So count on shorter run times. I think the light is very bright even blinding on "high" beam.
It has a lifetime warranty which Rayovac traditionally actually honors. Note the company calls this device "virtually indestructible."
To change the batteries you screw off the head. It has an o-ring so it might be more water resistant than claimed. There are logos on the inside to show you how the batteries go. Also a logo to line up to properly screw the head back on. If you are not attentive, you could have problems changing the batteries and screwing the device back together.
I think people will like this light because of its size, weight and brightness. Also the longevity of the batteries in use is another plus factor as is the guaranty. It has a nice feel to it.
It will be useful as a home or car light either general purpose or emergency. It will be good for camping. You can make it into a room light by taking 3 business cards, cutting a 45 degree partial cut in two of them, inserting the third in the two slots and placing it on top of the light as it rest on its butt. Clever diy selvers will put tin foil or duct tape on the one reflecting card.

I bought years ago, live in Florida, only really used when necessary, worked great ! Have been using more lately for a reading lamp, I have replaced batteries, just recently only 1 tube will light up, so i replaced both bulbs, so disappointed that bulbs havent fixed problem, only 1 side will light up, enjoyed it so much when both bulbs would work at same time, it was great to use when it worked properly. I would really like to get a replacement, it does state it has a lifetime warranty.

Love them!

By Dave45

from Québec, Canada

Comments about Rayovac® 6 Volt Alkaline Maximum Plus Lantern Battery (806):

I've had two of these, one in 2 AA and one in 3AAA and both are bright and long lasting. I use it for inspections of paper and pulp machines. Cuts through steam fog and makes everything visible. I gave several of them to my customers and they also love them. The only thing I don't or didn't like about the 3AAA was the off switch that automatically switches to low power it took me a while to get used to the feature as I'd put it back in my holder with the low level light on. I'm used to it now and think about shutting it off when I'm through with it.

Poor quality and service

By MJK53

from Virginia, United States

Comments about Rayovac® 6 Volt Alkaline Maximum Plus Lantern Battery (806):

I purchased this 1 yr ago and placed in on a shelf. My power went out 2 days ago. I put the brand new batteries in the light and one of the tubes flickered and then went out. I turned the light off and then back on. The second tube flickered and went out. After that, they were both dead though the top light continued to work. I called customer service and they said they would replace the lamp but I had to cover the cost of sending it back. This would essentially double the cost of the lamp. Not interested in doing this and likely getting back another dysfunctional lamp.

Comments about Rayovac® 6 Volt Alkaline Maximum Plus Lantern Battery (806):

I've owned a rayovac 3AAAled light flashlight for a while now and while I agree with everything said about this light it has stopped working and can't find any way to change the batteries, I have got both ends off, I know the three are encased in a small open holder creating a large battery look but can't seem to get out to replace any help???

Tough little light.. about time for a new revision

By DreguN1

from Porkland, OR

Comments about Rayovac® 6 Volt Alkaline Maximum Plus Lantern Battery (806):

This versatile light keeps me from getting my bike lights stolen of my bike, as I take it off and put it in my pocket. I have been loyally buying them at about 1 a year.. although they take quite a bit of abuse, they are not indestructible.. my latest one just died.. (some kind of electrical failure: all front leds started working simultaneously, then stopped working altogether)..( Rayovac, it is time to build in a rechargeable battery with USB plug.. the power boost from some nice 3.7v Li-Ions could power a brighter main LED.. I would be happy to stress-test any new designs and give you feedback. Please get me in touch with your R&D team. Thanks in advance..)

Comments about Rayovac® 6 Volt Alkaline Maximum Plus Lantern Battery (806):

I bought for an active hurricane season. Haven't needed to change bulbs yet, 2 or three battery changes. If only one light works then its a warning to change the batteries soon. I typically run it dead then change the batteries.

How to fix the plastic part

By Olivier

from Paris, France

Comments about Rayovac® 6 Volt Alkaline Maximum Plus Lantern Battery (806):

Hey guys, from France, sorry for my english. I broke the plastic part while changing the batteries. I thought my headlamp (which I like very much) was ready for garbage. I fixed it by using a piece of inner tube from a bike to keep the different parts together... And my lamp works perfectly. But truthfully, you need to improve this part. Except this, I recommand

Great until i changed batteries for hurricane Matthew... once I changed the batteries it didnt go on so I found that the bottom wasnt tight enough so the more i tightened the more the light stayed on...I tightened it more and heard a snap and now i cant tighten it down at all and it wont work at all.

Drains batteries quickly!

By Bruce

from Undisclosed

Comments about Rayovac® 6 Volt Alkaline Maximum Plus Lantern Battery (806):

I used this lantern one time for about 2 hours on a camping trip with new batteries. It worked great and was very bright. However, the second time I tried to use it, one bulb would barely come on at the medium setting, and neither light would come on at the high setting. I tried new batteries, and both bulbs work. This will be very expensive to operate if the 8 D batteries it requires only last a couple of hours each time.

Lights No working Properly

By jlbrody

from Sunrise, FL, United States

Comments about Rayovac® 6 Volt Alkaline Maximum Plus Lantern Battery (806):

We bought this for Hurricanes. And went to use it for a camping trip and the only setting that works is the one bulb setting but when you place on the two blub setting it does not work. We switch the blubs around and the blubs are fine batteries are brand new. We are upset that this is not working properly.

Check the Batteries

By Elusive Richard

from Kenmore, WA

Comments about Rayovac® 6 Volt Alkaline Maximum Plus Lantern Battery (806):

I purchased for our frequent power outages and it worked very well. At the last outage, only one bulb would work. I purchased a new bulb but it didn't help. Switched the bulbs around and the new bulb worked but still only one. Finally guessed that low batteries might be enough to light one bulb but not both. Checked the batteries and found them all to be at 1.1 v instead of 1.5. After replacing the batteries, both original bulbs work fine.

I like it, but...

By Emil

from San Peedro, CA

Comments about Rayovac® 6 Volt Alkaline Maximum Plus Lantern Battery (806):

A very good flashlight for indoor use and for a reasonable distance on a trail. The BIG advantage is the switch being on the side so you have the light in a comfortable position rather than other with the switch on the bottom. The but? ? It does not glow in the dark.

Bright and reliable

By DavidS

from Miami, FL, United States

Comments about Rayovac® 6 Volt Alkaline Maximum Plus Lantern Battery (806):

I've had the fluorescent lantern for more than 5 years and it has worked well during power interruptions, working in my boat at night, and working in the home attic. Very good area ligh. I have intermittently experienced the issue described in other reviews where only one bulb lights in bright mode but a couple twists of the power switch back and forth resolves it. My only issue with the fluorescent lantern is that the knob for the battery compartment has become detached from the steel knurled shaft, so it just spins in place without turning (loosening) the shaft. To remove the battery cover I need to twist off the knob and loosen the shaft with a pair of vice grips. Other than that it's been a reliable light that serves its purpose well.

Don't buy this

By katk

from RI

Comments about Rayovac® 6 Volt Alkaline Maximum Plus Lantern Battery (806):

Years ago I bought a Rayovac lantern, an dit is my go to light source in power failures. I wanted additional ones for other rooms, so I bought this new one. This is like the evil twin of my lantern. Here is what's wrong with it: 1. It has a horrible ochemical smell. I guess this is the plastic outgassing, but it is nauseating, and I couldn't keep the lantern in the house. 2. There is a design flaw in the battery compartment cover. In order to replace and tighten the cover, you have to align one center screw in the cover into a hole in the lantern. But you can't see either the screw or the hole when the cover is in position. I am not going to the trouble of returning this, but I won;t buy anything from Rayovac again.

Broken way too soon!

By sparks

from Western Massachusetts

Comments about Rayovac® 6 Volt Alkaline Maximum Plus Lantern Battery (806):

Red LED good for reading in bed without waking partner. The battery compartment is on the back of your head, with a cord coming forward, which is difficult for hats and reading in bed. The first time I went to change the batteries, a little piece of plastic broke off and now the battery door won't stay shut. The light is now useless.

LIfetime warranty!

By shorebreak

from Stinson Beach, CA, United States

Comments about Rayovac® 6 Volt Alkaline Maximum Plus Lantern Battery (806):

An old girlfriend got this light for me. She left and broke my heart. But I still have my trusty headlamp! I've had to return it twice. One time the little latch on the battery compartment broke. They promptly replaced it. Another time something inside the battery compartment came apart and I couldn't get it back together. Again they replaced it. OK, so it's had it's problems but RayOVac made good on it. That's more than I can say about my relationship! You gotta love a company that stands behind it's product. I've tried many other headlamps just to see what was out there and where are they now? Broken, discarded, in the landfill and no longer of any use to me. Now I've got a new one these and I am very happy with it!
