Just went and checked out this item, it came up at $7.70 with free shipping, great deal.

With battery and charger the price is 17.99 

too many bad reviews

I wonder why they are selling them so cheap?

its about normal price for these

Is it worth it to get the charger and 18650 battery for $17.99 shipped?

From the first review:
"This is not a 3-mode, 900 lumen light. This is a 510 lumen, 5-mode light..."

Are these "that" much brighter than these?

I bought a set of those and I thought they were ridiculously bright at 200 lumens
Just hard to think they could be 5 times brighter, or even 3 times brighter?.

  Perception of light isn't linear, it's exponential.  So if you double the power it only looks a bit brighter.  5x brightness will be darn bright, but not mind blowingly as you might think/hope.

Good light. I have this light. I paid a lot more 2 years ago.
Be Aware that this one uses 5 Modes:
Bright, Medium, Low, Strobe, SOS.
Zoom requires twisting.
I got it for the SOS since I use it for sailing.

  Sigh, flaky editor or megalomaniac moderators. I SAID that this would apply to the apparent luminosity of the light itself or the brightness of a specific nearby object, but the main point is to illuminate a larger volume of space (see further in a wider area). So the practical effect of 5x lumens should be much more than the logarithmic change in perceived brightness. If not, the issue may be incorrect flashlight lumen ratings or weak batteries (maybe 3xAAA instead of 1x18650). I think sellers rely on the effect you describe to substitute cheaper LED boards without most people noticing.

Notice, the type of flashlight changes when you click to add the battery and charger. Without, it is the "Ultrafire" 3-mode  (high, low, strobe) CREE XML T6 with 900+ Lumen output. When you add on the battery and charger, it becomes "Afunta" WF-502B CREE XM-L T6  5-Mode 1000 Lumens with 5-modes. And they're sold by two different companies.

In addition, the "Flashlight Kit2 " is sold by yet a different company, but it with the "Ultrafire" name.  Seems comparable to the Afunta style/brand, minus that it isn't listed as being shock-proof like the Afunta style is. (Who knows if either or both actually are though considering flashlights.)

Thanks for this. Great stocking stuffers.

I have several of these type of flashes. People should know they are not 1000 Lumens as advertised, but they are much brighter than other flashes. I would recommend buying the model that can use both 3 AAA batteries and the 18650 battery. I do have a few 18650 battery on hand, but in case of long period black outs or in a camping situation AAA's are the only way to go. Please do note the light output when using AAA's is not as bright as using 18650.

bad deal, I can find this item in a 99 cents store. It is not worth for buying this.

No you cant. This is not that. 

Can these use the 18650 battery as well?

   This 3 pack is half the price.

  You are in luck, that's the only battery it uses.

black and white in product description.

For slightly more, wouldn't it be a better deal to purchase the battery and charger separately like this item. You get two batteries plus hight mAh.
