    I use the Dorcy 41-4750... my first one has lasted 10 months now, with everyday use on my tool belt.

    1) Uses 4 AA batteries- since I'm a big NiCad fan, I use re-chargeables, and they last at least 2 weeks.

    2) Strong center beam with a wide cone around it. Perfect for service! So strong you can't look into the beam.

    3) Lightweight- used to carry a 2-D Mag-light.
    Experience is what you have an hour after you need it.

    Surefire all the way! You pay for what you get with this company.

    Edit: These lights were made with LE and the Mil in mind. If you want a flashlight that can take a beating and stand the test of time then Surefire is your ticket.

    If you want more flashlight info than you thought existed check out Candle Power Forums

    My personal recommendations are:
    Big light, very bright, belt holster: FourSevens Quark 123^2 Turbo X
    Small light, still likely brighter than most you've seen, shirt pocket: FourSevens Preon 2

    I actually enjoy shopping for and buying this kind of thing but I've got no excuse since these fit my service work habits perfectly.

    I also dont use a trouble light more than once or twice a year, instead I prefer a head lamp like this one.

    Surefire is no doubt the rolls-royce of flash lights, but I own a terralux and it has worked great for five years now. I am going to mount one on to my .338 lapua and that will be the real test of durability!

    I don't need a light so bright it burns my eyes when shining it on a schematic- that's what my Streamlight would do.

    I can't hold tools and a flashlight at the same time.

    I started using one of these and will never go back. Can hold it in your hand or wear it.

    Perfect for installing Tstats.
