    Hi folks, I just wanted to mention some Streamlight flashlights I've used and can highly recommend, along with some real-world prices (I am not associated in any way with Streamlight or any of their sellers):

    Nano: A little-bitty keychain LED light with replaceable batteries. At 1.47" x .51" you won't even know it's on your key ring, and it puts out 10 lumens, which is a LOT for this size light. Aluminum and waterproof. Under $10. Get a handful and give one to everyone in your family.

    PolyTac C4 LED HP: A polymer tactical light using two CR 123 lithium camera batteries. Head is 1.7" body is 1" length is 5.65". 150 lumens, around $45. A lot of bright per dollar. Great item to keep in each vehicle and by the bed.

    ProTac HL: An aluminum tac light using two CR 123 batteries. 1" x 5.4". 600 lumens on high, 33 lumens on low, plus strobe function. Programmable switching. Very bright, and the low setting is useful on such a light. You can find them for around $60-70. Outstanding carry light.

    I've run their TLR-1 on and off for years. One day I lost the retention screw, spring, and retaining clamp that keeps it on the rail. I emailed them and they sent me the replacement parts, free of charge. That's good CS in my book!

    You may want to spoil yourself with the new TLR-1 HL. 630 lumens.
