Not what I was getting at. The one in my post was an "all the time" utility flashlight meant for everyday carry in a size so small as to be unnoticeable and an output good enough for walking in the dark, yet with long battery life
. That last one is what makes it so great. You virtually never have to worry about it being close to the end of battery life.
Those lights you mention are nice, but they force you into "chasing battery mode" which I abhor. My suggestion was not a high speed, low drag, tacticool ninja light. Just one that belongs in the pocket next to the swiss army knife.
