Stream light has some nice stuff, mine is a twin task model about 7 " long with body diameter 1" and head diameter of 1 and a 1/2". It rechargable. It has 3 different power settings 3 LED, 6 LED, or zenon. I think this particular model is NLA originally $70 , got it marked fown for $30. Stream light does have some smaller ones that are not rechargable as well. The big box stores also see the small ones I think they are made by a company called coastal. Usually about $30...thay are pretty hard on batteries though. That's why I bit the bullet and got a rechargable. Just charge it every night and don't have to worry about it.

I took the suggestion from *completeapplianceservice* and purchased one these at Lowes--very bright and serves my needs well. Can be used to find house numbers from the cab of your truck on dark nights.

I also have a 12v milwaukee flashlight--very similar to the ENERGIZER. Although less bright and shorter "run time" it is now a back-up light.

Milwaukee Tools recently introduced a replacement LED bulb that can be used in their flashlights to provide an upgrade to brighter lumens and longer run time.

80 LEDs is modest. For true overkill, check out the 130 LED flood light :cool:

For those jobs where the homeowner lives in the dark 24/7---drapes drawn on a beautiful bright day. Requiring night-vision googles to walk thru the home...

20 million candlepower for less than $50

Take it to a whole new level and get a Electrolumens MCE EDC

I have three and these are like portable sun and small enough.

not cheap though, but what good tools are?
