Just wear these around camp.
Of course you'd burst into flames the first time a spark from the fire hit you... but other than that you'd be FABULOUS!!!
bump for SniperX..
I have a great one that needs a second battery pac replacment, but it is great when it works.
Those are DREAMY!
You could dance to this whilst wearing those!
I've got few pretty good flashlights, but the one that gets the most use is a Fenix PD20. One CR123 rechargeable batt, 190 lumens and the size of chapstick. it's always in my pocket, and gets used many times a day. Tough, tough little light.
I have the same setup, different brand. You're totally right, it does everything you could ask, super compact, bright enough for almost anything. I have brighter lights, but not ones that get used more.
I went from the CR123 battery format to AA for my goto light as I wanted to be able to use common batteries in case of an emergency. I do normally run it with lithium ion AA so I get full rated output.
Those Fenix lights are tough to beat for the money.
The new Fenix TK15 looks fantastic.:eek1
For a single AA light I recommend the Nitecore D10, its a pocket rocket!
Nice! Their site lists it as discontinued, though? I like the tail-click switch... don't usually see that on a light that size.
Look around, lots of dealers still have many left. http://www.google.com/m/products?cl...products&ei=PU3xTOjiNdWalwfVxrsE&ved=0CBEQzQM

I ordered one for the wife to give me for Christmas.
I like your thinking.
Many beamshots, many brands. Flashoholics rejoice! http://fonarik.com/test/indexen.php
After reading this thread, I bought one of the Malkoff 3-6D led drop in's for my 3D Maglite. The thing is a freakin' beacon now!
So after reading this thread i picked up 3 of em for 68 bucks shipped. I needed 3 so price was a factor. (1 for each car, 1 for the house)
This light. Coleman Bubba. 6 AA batteries (included) and boasting an impressive 165 lumens and a burn time of 37hrs!
I gathered up my pathetic flashlights and did a simple test.
Left to right....cheap Wal-Mart 13-LED light, Standard 6" (regular bulb) Maglite and our baby....you can see the scale. All lights have fresh batteries.
In my backyard it's PITCH black out, this is from about 15' away.
Maglite with beam narrowed. :huh
Wal-Mart LED light
This is about 40-50' across my backyard. You can see there is still tons of umph left in this light....it literally looks like a car headlight. Hard to believe it lasts 30+ hrs.
I have one of these for my duty light:
I've had Streamlights for the past 10 years and they are great pieces of kit. I also have a rechargeable version that gives me 15000 Candlepower. Drunks hate it when they get "The Light". But they're great lights and have great warranty and service.
awesome thread. I want to buy flashlights~!
Stevie Wonder would hate 15000 candle power...
Is it just a hand held??? that sounds just silly...
EDIT: oh... wait a minute that's 'candle' power.. not 'lumens'... it's about a 100 candle power per 1 lumen ratio I believe.. so that isn't that crazy...
