I can almost guarantee that customs, especially in England, will demand you prove it is not a weapon of some kind---
Seriously, is it that bad? (I haven't traveled internationally since forever so I don't have any experience.)

I mean, don't they sell these high power flashlights in England anyway? Since a guy could go into an English store and just buy one after they got off the plane why would customs get bent out of shape seeing one in your luggage?

One note about carrying a lot of batteries. In the dark ages of film cameras if you carried a lot of film customs let you off easier if the film was NOT in the factory boxes. In the factory boxes they thought you might be going to sell it on their economy, outside the boxes the film was much less saleable. That might apply to the batteries too - I don't know where you could check on this..
