I Need A New Flashlight
Here are my parameters: LED, powered by AA or AAA (I hate CR123), strobe function, and not a Surefire. I'm flexible with the battery parameter. I'd like to keep it under $100. Go!

I'll say I like my Fenix headlamp I bought last year. They make handheld units, too, but I don't have any experience with them.

I just picked up a Coleman Max Ultra Bright 200 Lumen Flashlight, at Walmart for $29.00. It is slightly bigger then a mini mag. But it is very bright and has two settings.

I've had good luck with the ones I picked up at Costco, a 3 pack for under $20. I think I have nine of them now, good battery life, strobe function.

Here's a comparison I did with various flashlights I had.

These are the lights I used:

I love my Lumintop L1A. It takes one AA battery, and is a great size for pocket carry. Almost all good to say about it. The biggest con is that the switch is a little sensitive, and if you do pocket carry, it can turn itself on. I keep it clipped to my pocket, and that doesn't happen as much. For me, it's not a problem, as I always have a spare battery handy. I grabbed it as a gun show special, at $25.

For more lumens, at the same show I grabbed an Olight T25 Tactical. It takes 2 AA batteries. It was $55, and I also really like this one.

Wow, I just found a great price in this light. $39.95 and free shipping.

I would definitely buy either one again.

I use Nebo Blue-lines and Red-lines for work, black-outs and camping. They have never failed yet and don't leach the battery. I'm pretty happy with them and they are inexpensive. Sorry I can't help with anything else, as my other light is a Streamlight and it takes 123s.

Take a look at this, you can use the rechargeable battery's. They last a long time for a small investment. Here's the charger and battery's. Use code app10 and get 10% off.
I got this on ebay and love it! It's bright as hell, affordable, and the batteries are rechargeable. I keep it next to my bed, on top of one of my gun lock boxes.
