The Coleman 4D Dual Action WideBeam Flashlight throws a bright 7W beam onto that dark path. The 140-degree angle of light closely matches the human peripheral field of vision, so you don't have to wonder what's lurking in those dark corners. Coleman designed the Dual Action to emit a center spot of bright light with a softer perimeter. This works out quite nicely when you stand the flashlight on its its flat base for area lighting. The Xenon blue-tipped Bulb provides a white light that's easy on the eyes.

HORRIBLE

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

Who the hell designed this? I should of read the numerous complaints about this piece of junk before ordering replacement bulbs. I tried for 1 hr. trying to change the UTube bulbs and could not open the flashlight. The instructions are poor. So, I threw the Widebeam to the trash where it belongs.

Not a good light

    This is a clunky light using an incandescent bulb and 4D batteries, if it was 1995 then this would be a great light. This is heavy and provides mediocre light given it's size and weight. Not waterproof, not durable, not worth the shipping cost.

    BC needs to seriously revamp their light vendors. I love BC, but the lighting, especically flashlight section, is terrible. Email me if you have any questions or would like good lighting suggestions. My email address is on my profile page.

    love it

      About 2 years ago I won a chance for free items. I picked 2 of the Coleman Dual Action. My husband was up set, felt we had enough flash lights. After 2 years and living in the country he now uses the coleman all the time. We keep one by the back door and the other we use when the power is out. One in the living room (using the side lights) lights up the whole room. I use the side light at night to walk out to the barn, it lights up the whole walk way. I can't count the number of times he has said, "I am glad you didn't listen to me about the lights". They are great....

      no longer working..changed batteries---can you tell me how to tell if bulbs are blown?

      Angie, incandescent bulbs burn out very easily. The filament doesn't always appeary broken like you might see in an old light bulb. If you changed the batteries and it doesn't work there are only a few explantions.

      1) batteries are in the wrong orientation, double check
      2) bulb is burned out, need a new bulb
      3) electrical issue, water or corrosive battery acid has damaged circuitry, flashlight is now garbage

      My suggestion, the bulb is not worth the money to replace it. Buy a new LED light that has at least 3 watts and you will never need to replace a bulb again. Additionally, you will have increased battery life and it will be much lighter and smaller.

      how bright is this coleman wide beam how far out does the beam go compared to c cell maglite how would you rate this light i need a really good light for security and general purpose thanks

      Greg, don't buy this light or a Maglite. They are really not good lights. Maglite is better because they've moved on to LED technology, but still they are using reputation and not technology. As far as "7 watt" don't let that fool you into being impressed. 7 watt incandescent is very weak. 7 watt LED would be very very bright. If you want a good security light I have many suggestions for you none of which are available through BC. You or anyone else can email me personally if you want information or suggestions on lights. I want to make it clear I do not sell flashlights! It's just a hobby I take very seriously and don't want people wasting money on old technology. BC you can email me too if you want some suggestions for improving your light inventory.

      hello this flashlight is waterproof ? i want it for diving thanks.

      Antoni, no no no on diving, this light wouldn't even survive a shower! Diving lights are actually a special beast that need to be designated for diving. A "waterproof" or "weatherproof" light does not mean dive rated. Pressure at depth makes a big difference and a great waterproof light will still not be sufficient for any real diving. Static tests (no movement or operation of switches) are used to rate lights on water resistance, but diving is not a static activity. My email address is on my profile page if you or anyone wants more information.

      Does the flashlight plug into a wall socket?...

      Does the flashlight plug into a wall socket? Or do you have to take the batteries out and recharge them on a charger?
