    I had a Streamlight NF-2. I paid an arm and a leg for it. It was so bright, I could have guided planes in with that thing. I thought it was going to be a great flashlight, but it was a total lemon. The batteries are stupid expensive, and I had to send it back twice to get the switch replaced. It took forever to get it back both times. It broke a third time, and it has sat in my toolbox ever since then.

    I'll stick with the mini LED mag-lights you can get at Wally World for $20. I have my complaints with them, too... But they haven't nearly as unreliable as that P.O.S. Streamlight

    My 6P has been through H**L and it still works great.

    Drops, falls, kicks across the floor, a couple dunks in the lake, mine just won't quit. LED or incandescent? I could potentially see problems with an LED due to rough handling.

    Yeah, I've replaced the lamp a couple times, and batteries as needed.

    One little hitch is sometimes, the tail cap switch will get a coating of some sort on it and needs to come out and be cleaned maybe once every year or two.

    If a hundred dollar flashlight quit on me in a year, I'd crawl so far up the manufacturer's backside that they'd choke.

    Maglites are a dime a dozen. I don't care for them. Children's toys, really.

    Zebralight SC51w is my choice for an EDC. The Neutral color is great and spits out almost 200 lumens on 1 AA battery.

    Also able to use it as a night light when on vacation for my son (0.18 lumes for 16 days).

    Streamlight Strion LED has been the best flashlight I have ever owned. Use it daily for over 4 years now.
    Carry it on my belt next to my leatherman. I also have a Streamlight Stinger, Surefire model something, and a good head light..and many others.

    Buy the Strion and you wont be disappointed. No more batteries or bulbs
    If its worth doing, it's worth doing right.

    Checkout the 'streamlight' STYLUS - 2 AAA batteries, fits right in the shirt pocket with no sag.
    Try J-mart, had them on sale for $20 or so.

    You can run it for hours before charging and it gives off an

    Is that the m18 or M12 version?

    I've been seriously considering an M12 flashlight to replace the little LED maglight that rides in my toolbag as a backup.

    LED or incandescent?

    Streamlight is the way to go... Got mine for $100 or so from graingers, I'm sure it's cheaper online. Ive yet to find a nice head lamp though....

    Zebralight is the best headlamp for work I have found. Very light and bright.
