    I got a 4Sevens Quark MiniX 123. AMAZING flashlight.

    It's small enough to carry every day without a problem. Needs a battery about every 4-6 months(if that), and the battery is $3. It is dim enough on it's low setting that I don't disturb sleeping people in the same room, and bright enough on high that I can(and did) illuminate my entire kitchen/living/dining room for a few hours by putting it on the island. It's made in America. It's got a TEN YEAR warranty, and it's only $40.

    I love my flashlight. I don't leave home without it.

    I had a Surefire E2E that I loved but had to sell it a few years ago when times got tough. I loved that little light, it's so powerfully blinding but man did it melt through batteries like nothing else. Not too long ago a good friend gifted me a Nitecore Extreme (R2) which is an LED light (using only 1 - CR123 battery) and I love this one as well. This light is far more practical and useful than the Surefire simply because it's still crazy bright (yeah not nearly as bright as the Surefire granted - but still pretty good for blinding someone) for it's size yet doesn't eat the batteries nearly 1/4 as fast. Lights sure are fun.

    I use a LED Streamlight Strion at work each night on my duty belt along with a Surefire 6P LED (I work 3rd shift) and have a Strion LED HP in my bag for the times I need the "Light Saber". We had a few multi day power outages in CT this past year and that sucker could light up the whole street. Works great at clearing the parties out, too. No one likes it hitting them in their eyes. I have a few Surefires (Z2 Combat, G2 converted to LED) and a Streamlight TLR-1. I really like the LED's. Good and bright, gets peoples attention and the batteries last longer. I prefer a rechargeable, but I buy the CR123A's by the dozen at one of my wholesalers, so it's not as painful to change out the batteries.
