I have old school maglites one large one Leo size that I converted to led ,the brightness and battery life is much better.. It rocks and makes a good club .
I never thought I'd recommend anything over Surefire but that day has come, Modlite all the way. I'm going 100% rechargeable.Anything from Surefire, Streamlight, or Fenix...in that order.
You can have that strobe stuff, I'll stick with an eye blistering torch.I like Surefire; however, I picked up a fenix and really like it! Rechargeable or can use the same battery as my Surefires.... also, it has various output modes and a strobe!
There is more to output than lumens. My Surefire DF puts out 1,500 lumens and approximately 15,000 candela while my Modlite OKW is only 680 lumens but with approximately 69,000 candela and it whips the snot out the SF DF when it comes to long range luminescent.

Yep...way more than lumens to take into consideration when choosing a light.There is more to output than lumens. My Surefire DF puts out 1,500 lumens and approximately 15,000 candela while my Modlite OKW is only 680 lumens but with approximately 69,000 candela and it whips the snot out the SF DF when it comes to long range luminescent.
I gave up all my 4 D cell Maglites, my rechargeable police light, my 2 D cell common flashlights, in favor of these little guys. They are so much brighter! I have one in every room of the house, and one in every car, several in the 5th wheel. 7W Cree. Packs of 5, 10, or 2 for $5.80 at Amazon or EBay.Can of worm thread!
My absolute favorite are these little guys. I buy them in lots of ten. One or two go missing, I don’t care. Not one hasn’t worked when I needed it to work. I have them literally everywhere around the house. They run off one AA battery. Fairly bright, they get the job done.

Yes I own more expensive flashlights, do I use them as much as these guys, no.
Ill wait for the, “Don’t trust your life to those” responses!
