I bought two of these lights. They were selling them for $20.00 special a few weeks ago. They are nowhere near 1200 lumens. The beam is quite narrow and significantly less bright than my Serfas 750 lights. The one thing that has surprised me though is the battery life. So far I have put in about 6 hours on one charge and it is still working. I am going to keep taking it out and see how much longer it lasts.
