I have to agree with 4X4Dodger. Mag light is the choice for me. And my go to light. But at the same time I must say I do use the free Harbor Freight LED lights. Light weight, bright enough for my uses and free. Stock up now!

Being a retired LEO I have used numerous rechargeable mag lights over the years. There are some really good bright ones out there, but expensive. If you want an inexpensive/bright durable flashlight go to Cosco. I picked up one a couple months ago and it has been great!

The Fenix TK 41 is my favorite. Probably highest actual use are my Fenix E25 two AA battery flashlights.

I despise anything that uses AAA batteries. They have about 1/3 the capacity (milliamp hours) as a AA and cost the same as a AA battery. I have some from Costco that are bright, but the 3xAAA batteries do not last very long. I'm much happier with these little guys. 1 AA or one 14500 battery. One mode.

eBay sells a variety of high-power CREE T6 flashlight that use a rechargeable Li-Ion battery (similar in size to the non-rechargeable SureFire flashlight batteries) that are surprisingly bright and amazingly cheap.

I've bought several from different sellers based in China and the designs are all remarkably similar - rugged all-aluminum construction and probably made by the same manufacturers but sold under different brands.

This particular one (2000 Lumen UltraFire) comes with both a battery and charger. I'd advise buying additional batteries as quality control on the batteries is not quite as good as the flashlights themselves and about 1-in-4 turn out to be clunkers; i.e., don't charge to the full voltage and/or don't hold a charge.

You can also buy them that are crazy bright (I bought a 32,000 LM light for about $45 including S&H), adjustable beams, multiple LEDs, dual-brightness, etc. Delivery has been anywhere from a few days to a couple of weeks.

Walmart has the Stanley FATMAX 2,200 lumens rechargeable for $49.99. It is a super bright light.
