Outdoor Tech Buckshot Pro: Sound
It is good and loud. You will hear it as long as you have got the speaker facing up and never down. It is a small speaker and not a subwoofer you would be standing next to at a rave wondering if you can really touch the sound you are seeing.
It is about the good sound for a camping speaker, nice sound for being on a bike as long as you point it towards your head, it is not quite a bring the party to this room speaker, but it is okay. All that is subjective of course. I think for outdoors they did a pretty good job with it.
It does have a slight cardboard cup sound to a few of the music I have been playing, I do not know that that is surpassable in something this size, however.

It has ambient and directional settings as well as flashing. It is first rate looking around a basement flashlight, but it does not appear to be powerful enough to carry back the ravages of night and fling back the opaque curtains. It will help you find your keys or get you to a bathroom
According to the specification booklet, the device has an 80-200-lumen rating. I assume the 80 is the ambient and the 200 directed. I left my 200-lumen flashlight at home so I can not match. It is good for scene illumination, but you are not going to light a stage with it.
The flashlight head separate so you can obtain the charging functions of the device. It has a ring that screws as much as hold it on, so no worries about losing your head.
