I've had more flashlights in my lifetime than I care to admit. Too me the best flashlight is one that is always on hand with a decent brightness, I'm not trying to illuminate the entire area. I can fit two of these in my pocket with an extra battery, always on hand and very useful. these types have served me well and if i loose one no big deal, I order 4-5 at a time. They run forever on a single AAA battery and I have an extra in my pocket if it does. This is all i use now and use it everyday, very handy. AND THEY ARE INEXPENSIVE.
3 Brightness settings and strobe feature:
this one is a new one I'm trying for the first time, I like the tailcap push button. Only one brightness setting though,Working perfect so far:
Both available on Amazon.
