The ones I used in my mini mag were from MagLite but it was awhile ago so maybe they are better now

Default Simply Blinding!

Hey Dave,
Just curious, how many lumens do those put out? Also, what is the burn time? Those D cell Maglites must burn for hours!
I kind of recently gotten interested in flashlights because of my little brother. It seems like every time I see him, he shows me his "newest, latest, greatest" flashlight. He must have at least a couple dozen, maybe more, high tech tactical flashlights in his collection. About a year ago, he introduced me to this incredible new technology!

Anyway, here is my small collection:
This is the one he got me started with. This gift came as a set bundled with a Leatherman multi tool, flashlight and Nylon combo sheath. This is the flashlight that came in the set. Leatherman 831140 Monarch 400 1 AA LED Flashlight.

For a powerful 200 lumen torch, this is a good one. It is called an F-NF015: 3-Watt LED Flashlight with CREE XLamp LED

My favorite flashlight, the one I keep on me at all times is the Tank007 E07: 120 Lumen LED Flashlight AA with Osram LED Bulb It is small, light and packs a punch. I also like the fact that it uses a common AA battery.

This is the one I keep in the car because of the CR123 lithium battery, RC-C3: Romisen C3 LED Pocket Flashlight with CREE Xlamp LED Hopefully this will work whenever I need it. Supposedly these batteries have a 5 year shelf life.

PS- BTW, I also have the 2-AA Maglite, with the Nighteyez LED upgrade!

One word of caution with any of these high powered flashlights that have a switch that stays on when you let go. On some of the flashlight boards there have been more than a few FIRES started unintentionally by setting the turned on light down on some surface that can burn and they are so powerful that fires can start just from the heat of the light or contact with the hot lens.

If you have one of these badboys they recommend using the momentary on switch position so when you let go of the switch it turns off.

Dave,

My brother thought that you might be interested in this measly 2200 lumen light for a paltry $455!

Jeff, when I showed your link to little brother, he replied with this:

Found a nice small LED light for only $24.95 And it runs on two AA batteries. can't post the whole thing here but here is a snippet:

As I mentioned previously, I received a box from Gerber Tools a few weeks back and inside were two knives and two lights. Last week in the recreational section I reported on my test of the Gerber Epic knife. This week on the tactical side I'm reporting on my test of the Gerber Onyx 60 LED flashlight. Any LED light that runs on two AA batteries starts out with some benefit of the doubt.

Now I'm not bashing lights that run on CR123 3V lithium batteries, nor the batteries themselves, but this Onyx60 LED has something in common with only one other tactical light I'm familiar with: it runs on two AA batteries. For the cost of one pair of the 3V lithiums, you can buy about two dozen AAs. And while the 3V lithiums can only be found in certain department stores, camera shops or electronics shops, the AAs can be found in every convenience store, grocery store, drug store, etc. My point is that convenient availability of the AAs far exceeds that of the 3V lithiums and the price is lower by about 75% on avarege in my experience.
