Those are actually around $4 now, and sometimes a bit under $4 on Amazon (maybe even cheaper on eBay).

I've noticed on some of these flashlights that they have wildly differing ranges of brightness (measured in lumens), as well as run time (presumably all measured using alkalines, but it is not specified on the package).

These flashlights are rated at 24 lumens and 3 hours. The Defiant 9-LED Flashlights (2 pack with batteries for $4) is rated at 36 lumens and 5 hours, and the Defiant 12 LED flashlights (2 pack for $10) are rated for 80 lumens and 6 hours, all for the same 3 AAA batteries. I guess these are much more efficient LEDs (or the ratings are bogus).

P.S.

as any photographer will tell you, a light that is twice as bright will only give you 1/2 stop (or 1EV). So the actual visual difference between 24 and 36 lumens is small (1.5x or about 1/2EV), but 24 to 80 (3.5x, about 1.67EV) is much more significant.

Great for lighting up tight areas. Best part is that they last for long long time.

Thanks got a couple for pickup.

As noted by Mr C -  set includes 24 AAA Eveready batteries.  

After factoring the the cost of  batteries the flashlights themselves should be pretty much free.  Good to have for emergency situations

If you don't want to buy so many at once and you have a Harbor Freight in your area... size and "specs" appear to be almost identical to the HF units that are regularly free with coupon and purchase (see attached PDF scan).  Not sure how HF gets $6.99 value when the regular shelf price for this flashlight is $2.89.  HF unit also includes batteries.  Buy a $0.25 sheet of sandpaper (use the 25% off coupon on that one ), and get the flashlight free.  Total OOP is about $0.21.

Just an FYI.  I went to my local Home Depot and looked them over as I needed some AAA alkaline batteries for other devices and I saw that the batteries included with the flashlights are Eveready Heavy Duty non-alkaline so I passed.

noone ever said these were alkaline.

Buy one that uses 1-AA vs 3-AAA and save money on batteries over the life. Also for $4, you can get the Sipik clone that uses 1-AA and is many times brighter than these. And a battery swap is much quicker on a 1-AA vs a 3-AAA.
These that have multiple LED's are dim, and eventually die, thus I guess why they include 8 of them.
The batteries aren't alkaline, don't last long, and often end up leaking.

  Didn't say they did.  No one specified battery type so I was just putting that info out there.

agreed.  this is where I always get free flashlights, screwdriver sets, tape measures, etc since I always end up needing some tool from there for working on the car or other projects.

I have so many from Harbor Freight that use 3xAAA batteries per flashlight like these from HD that the batteries where getting expensive.  Went out and bought a Ultrafire 1xAA and a good Fenix 1xAAA much cheaper in the long run and much better light.

Doesn't a non alkaline battery corrode and ruin the flashlight? Seems I read this somewhere. If that is the case I would pass as I wouldn't want to leave these unused for a long period of time in glove boxes.

Good deal. Ordered 2 and picked up 2. Already put one set together. These are great to have on hand, and I'm glad I got 2 sets. Thank you OP!

For battery leak/corrode problem ...
​I had lots more incidents with alkaline type than with heavy duty type.
Also experienced more incidents when the device is not used for some time.
But for rechargeable batteries (good or cheap), some died but none leaks.
Just years of personal experiences, don't know the reason why.

The non-alkaline batteries aren't worth much. And I personally do not like flashlight that uses 3xAAA batteries. Too expensive to operate. Too many batteries to charge (and AAA rechargeables aren't very useful). There are $5 flashlight that uses single AA and much brighter. They won't last as long but you can always carry more AAs.

  I was at Dollar Tree last night and they had a package of 8 batteries, Sunbeam alkaline batteries, for $1 each package

I'm sure these flashlights are garbage. I just hate throwing these in the trash when they go out after a short use which I have in the past. The dumps are full of junks as it is, I don't want to contribute more to it. I'll pass.

Besides, how is this a hot deal if you can't even use it? For the amount of junk flashlights I spent on, I could have bought myself a nice one that's reliable. It drives me nuts when it doesn't work when I need it most!

  I agree 3xAAA flashlights are old technology.  A $5 1xAA flashlight is simpler, brighter and costs much less in the long run.  Get some AA Eneloop rechargeable batteries you will be glad you did.

   Don't tell people that or HF will modify the policy! 
I've done almost the same thing for years...only I usually buy the cheapo 1/8" drill bit set for $1.50. I know I'm gonna break the 1/8" bits...so I like to keep a few extra on hand anyway.

I picked up one of the flashlight sets at HD a couple of days ago. They're about what I expected for the price. ALMOST the same thing as the "free" HF flashlight, but with a shiny, slick surface.
Still...good enough for what I want them for.

Got 1 for same-day pickup. Enough flashlights to keep around the home. Blister packaging a bit tedious to get thru to pry out 8 flashlights and the 24 batts.

  So the ones at Home Depot are...sharper?

I find it hard to believe these cheap no-name flashlights from one store are brighter than the cheap no-name flashlights from another store.
