This looks very promising, but we need something to work with... SKU, link, photo of store price tag.

http://www.homedepot.com/p/Defiant-650-Lumen-Flashlight-809-3771...

I bought three, I came to post the deal, but OP beat me to it

Pretty good deal OP

I bought the competing version for $16 (was $24) back in the fall at HD; Looks very similar, though the one I picked up runs on 3 "C" cells, where I'm guessing this one runs on 3 "D" cells - based on the part number.

Excellent light for the price point - and easy to feed in a power outage (common batts vs rechargeable unique batteries).

The store near my shows 7 of the OP's version in stock - might be time for a few more.

This flashlight comes with the 3 D cells needed and is available in numerous Home Depots in the Maryland suburbs of Washington.  I saw them this afternoon.   The newer model is supposedly 1000 lumens and is on sale for around $30.  So this is a great buy.

The features that make this light a keeper
- Side switch as opposed to the tail switch on many other designs
- 375 Meter throw, that is hard to believe
- Comes with 3 D cells for large capacity, 14 hours is hard to believe
- Could be used as a weapon
- At this size it may not grow legs like the smaller lights

What I don't like
- Heavy
- Long
- Blinding !

Any older incandescent flashlights you may have are obsolete.
This generation of LED flashlights are impressive.
At this price it is hard to find something that compares.

  I agree completely on all points. When it's off, it's a formidable club. When I take it out at night, it looks like a lightsaber, unless it's pointed in your direction, then it's blinding. 
 

The 3 C cell version last year was a better light due to its larger reflector.
That super thrower was well received by the experts in the groups that collect these.
The 1000 lumen model for $30 is a 3 led light with a 3 cone reflector. That is a nice light too but this one has a tighter spot and compares well.

The SKU is 1000015067.  You can check at HomeDepot.com if its available in your local stores.

This must be a regional sale. It is $19 in Austin.

Damn another flashlight order. Where can I find more night adventures?

in for 3

still waiting for beamshots

  Could be used as a weapon like the star wars lightsaber huh?

If your store reports $19, like my store did, try adding it to cart. Once I did that I got the $8.98 price.

Last night was able to place my order and went thru... Got a cancel notification email and text this morning!

Thanks OP!

JFYI , ordered from 2 stores that reported stock but both were cancelled . the in-stock amount numbers are not accurate

  Off topic but I think such statement do add value affirming that this is a good deal.

Got one of these at lunch. Wow, this thing is bright. Oddly excited about having bought a flashlight.

Sold out everywhere for me. Hard luck.

They also hearken back to the day when Woot! had wonderful deals with a limit of three per person.   So it's somewhat of an inside joke.  

Gone, baby, Gone from my local HD.

  How did it taste?

Picked up one on the way home. Man it feels really solid in hand, and lights up hundred yards like a car headlight. Wife was shocked like "are you gonna rob someone with it"
