Mag lites are good for keeping around the house and camp, and we have a virtually unlimited supply of AA batteries, so a couple mini models would probably serve us well. Last mag lite I had was a mini with a tiny incandescent bulb.
I really like the C4 right angle light suggested by Ace, and would probably opt for the non-rechargeable option. I can see having one of these in my workshop or by where we keep our emergency preparedness gear. In case I have to lug my generator out and hook it up, or deal with the aftermath of a wind storm, this would probably be the better option.
Nowadays there are a lot of flashlights which impress with their quality and performance. Many companies produce various LED flashlight and sometimes we think what light is better or even the best. Recently I have had an experience with Armytek company and its products. A month ago I purchased Armytek Predator 670 lumens and happy that this light met all my needs. I really like using rechargeable 18650's.
I got a really great flashlight from the NRA when I renewed last time. It took the three AAA's in a little adaptor. I wanted to go with the 18650 Lithium Ion too. I found there are two different sizes of the 18650. The longer one has a built in charge regulator. The NRA light won't accept the longer one, so I ordered one of those CREE lights from Amazon for about $8.00. I love it and the recharge batts fit nicely. The adjustment takes it from a flood to a very small bright rectangle and you can see a long way with it.
the max lights in the review uses aa batteries and aaa but the one i have uses d batteries and is bright enough to use as a spotlight.
ive watched deer at night on the hill behind our house with it nearly 600 yards away (very bright light)
shooting the s*** is a lot more fun when you use hollow points (much more splatter)
