I think we just covered this but here ya go.

In my pocket at all times the Fenix L0D CE - $47 (discounts available) and worth every penny.

Fenix L0D:
• Cree 7090 XR-E LED
• Five output modes: 20 Lumens(3.5hrs) -> 7.5 Lumens(8.5hrs) -> 50 Lumens(1hrs) ->Strobe -> SOS
• Four days of survival use (two continuous hours per day on the lowest setting)
• Uses one 1.5V AAA battery (not included), inexpensive and widely available
• 7.35cm (L) x 1.4cm (D) (or 2.9 in (L) x 0.6 in (D))
• 14.5-gram (or 0.5 oz) weight (excluding batteries)
• Made of aircraft-grade aluminum
• Durable Type III hard-anodized finish
• Toughened ultra-clear glass lens with AR coating
• Waterproof to IPX-8 Standards
• Capable of standing up securely on a flat surface to serve as a candle
• Input voltage: 0.8V~3.3V
• Reliable twist-switch
• Includes a spare o-ring, a split ring, and a pocket clip


On order for belt carry the Fenix T1 - $77 (discounts available)

• Cree Premium (Q5) 7090 XR-E LED with lifespan of 50,000 hours
• Two modes of output, selected by turning the bezel:
¨ Turbo Mode: Constant 225 Lumens, 1.5 hours
¨ General Mode: Constant 60 Lumens, 10 hours
• Highly efficient focusing head - throws beam over 200 meters
• Textured Reflector for optimum balance and transition between spot and flood
• Digitally regulated output - maintains constant brightness
• Low battery indication system
• Uses two 3V CR123A lithium batteries TWO CR123A INCLUDED
• 136.5mm (Length) x 35mm (Diameter)
• Solid stainless head & durable aircraft-grade aluminum housing
• Premium Type III hard-anodized anti-abrasive finish
• 153 + -- 0.5 gram weight (excluding batteries)

• Toughened ultra-clear glass lens with anti-reflective coating
• Tactical tailcap switch with momentary-on function
• Tactical body clip – attaches securely for easy carrying
• Anti-roll, slip-resistant body design
• Able to stand up securely on a flat surface to serve as a candle
• Included accessories: holster, lanyard, two spare o-rings, and a spare rubber switch boot


Next to my bed the Tenergy CREE XR-E (4W) - $29 w/10 CR123A batteries - on par or slightly better than a 3D-cell Maglite, but not in the same league as Fenix. BTW: This is the only All-Battery flashlight that I can recommend.

While you're at All-Battery check out their chargers. A charger for CR123A with 6 rechargeable batteries is $27.

Note I am not associated with either company except as a happy customer.
