Looking for a good flashlight
I'd like to find a good flashlight that won't go out when I really need it. I have had a mini maglight and 2D maglight and they SUCK...the light flickers when you move the light, or changes over to "strobe" mode. Will never, ever buy maglite again.
Anyone know of a quality flashlight they'd recommend that is recharchable and that has a belt holster?
For 2 years I have been using the Dorcy 41-4750. I use rechargable ni-cads (4 AA) and only have to change batteries every 2 or 3 weeks. No issues, and the light is so bright it hurts to look into it.
Don't know about a holster... I use the large loop on my tool belt. My heavy old Mag-lites are now retired.
Experience is what you have an hour after you need it.
This is my primary go-to flashlight under most circumstances. I use the rechargeable 18650 batteries (two sets) Approx. 3 yrs and no issues with flashlight or batteries and I use them every day.

Fluke makes the smallest lightest and by far brightest little lite. About 50 bucks. Aaa battery and does black light also. It's awesome. Will outshine all the big heavy bulky lights highly recomend
I got a Fenix E11 and a Zebralight 502 headlamp recently. I am very pleased with both.
Not rechargeable, but I've been trying to kill a Surefire 6p for over 15 years.
Haven't succeeded, yet.

I love my streamlight stylus pro.

Both have a charger mounted in my van and last quite awhile in between charges. Wouldn't trade either one.
Before that I had a surefire G2 and a few other similar others but I got sick of buying those 3v batteries.
Fenix PD32 extreme. 4 selectable lumen modes the highest one 850 lumen cost $80.00
This is by far the best flashlight I have ever used for service. It is a Dewalt 12 volt. Has belt clip, magnet to hold in place on furnace/air handler and of course the battery is rechargeable. I also carry the 12 volt impact driver that uses the same battery so drill or flashlight always has a second battery when one goes out unexpectedly. Bright LED light, flip down stand, magnetic, swivel and tilt head, that is compact and uses the same battery as my drill...perfect.
