BrightMAX 3000 'Tactical Military' Flashlight Review: 5 Things to Know

Hi. Wanted to post a real quick 'review' of a new flashlight being promoted all over the internet...

BrightMAX 3000 Flashlight review

It's called the BrightMAX 3000 'Tactical Military' Flashlight and it's very similar to other flashlights being sold online. Before you spend your 40 - 60 dollars on this product please know the following 5 things...

1. It's Chinese-made and nothing special.

This light is manufactured by a company in China and sold under several different brand names. There are several different versions of what is basically the same exact prouct. Probably the best known example is the 'LumiTact Tactical G700' flashlight. Many other similar lights are sold under the MECO brand.

2. Almost all of the online reviews are fake.

The reviews -- mostly fake blog posts and YouTube videos -- are nothing but promotional BS created by retailers and affiliates trying to sell you this over-priced product. Don't fall for the hype. Real reviews show both the negatives and the positives of the product!

3. The features/benefits are not unique.

Being made with 'military grade' aluminum metal and creating a beam bright enough to 'blind a bear' are nothing new or special. Literally 100's of modern flashlights have the same features. As a couple online flashlight forums point out, these Chinese lights are basically just mass-marketed versions of cheap products that've been on the market for years.

4. The 30-day guarantee doesn't mean much.

The company (possibly companies) who sells the BrightMAX 3000 and other clones is known for making it difficult to take advantage of the 30-day guarantee. There's little to no real customer service and it's hard to get your money back if there's a problem. Also, 30 days isn't enough time to evaluate any flashlight.

5. You can buy better flashlights for less money on Amazon.

Sipik 700 Lumen CREE flashlight
There are far superior lights for sale on Amazon and they cost significantly less money. One good example is the Sipik 700 Lumen Camping Torch. It features:

  • Super Bright CREE XM-L T6 LED Bulb
  • 6061T High-Strength Aluminum
  • 700 Lumens Max Output
  • Skid-Proof and Water Resistant (O-ring Sealed)
  • Adjustable Focus Zoom
  • 5 Mode Adjustable Brightness: High/Mid/Low/Strobe/SOS
  • Tactical 'Strike Bezel' for Self-Defense
  • 2-Year Warranty
  •  18650 Rechargeable Battery w/ Charger

That's a hell of a lot for just $16! Click here to learn more.

Whatever you do, don't buy the BrightMAX 3000 tactical flashlight from SurvivalGiant or any other fake 'survival' blog website. You'll pay full price, which is usually at least 2 or 3 times more than the 'true' price of this light.

Again, if you want a super-strong, high-quality, tactical or military-style flashlight, your best bet by far is to choose one of the top-sellers on

Supernova Guardian 1300

Giphy -- a startup that helps you find funny GIFs -- is worth $300 million

Yeah, you read that right.

Giphy is basically a search engine for animated GIFs, those little mini-videos we all love to use instead of actual words. It just got $55 million in venture capital funding based of a valuation of $300 million. Some are calling it the "Google of GIFs."

That's crazy. But GIFs are pretty kick-ass, especially the Rick and Morty ones...
