    I am a streamlight junkie and I have used a great deal of lights and right now I am sold on the TL-2x. It is a 200 lumen light which is pleanty of light to light up just about anything.

    So I went on Dealextreme.com and found a Surfire knock off that takes AA batteries (free from work).

    For the cost of a real Surefire I can buy ten of the knockoffs. I have been impressed with the light output, construction, and durability of these little boogers. They will last me around a year of daily abuse.

    My surefire is 13 or 14 years old.

    Employer covers batteries, although I don't always submit them. I carry the light on and off duty.

    This is the only way to go if you want a real bright flashlight!
    You can run it for hours before charging and it gives off an
    impressive amount of light.

    If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem.

    I have been carring the Steamlight Stylus pro C4 LED for about a year, about the size of a pen and can light up a workspace great, 2 AAA batteries that last a good 6 months. If I need to go handfree I can put it behind my ear like a pencil for a short time or hold it in my teeth for a longer period. At about a 1/2" in dia it fits a lot of places others won't.

    I use a terralux light, uses 2 AA batteries. Light output is great, it has 2 different intensities. Battery life isn't terrible but not great either. Its held to some major abuse so i'm sold on it.

    It would be hard to beat this one in the same price range. Uses rechargable battery too and is only 4.2 inches long.

    What in the WORLD are you doing with those lights?
