    I'm looking on Amazon to get a couple of decent led flashlights that fit into a pocket. There is so much stuff out there and names I don't recognize. I have had Maglites for years. I know there is a lot of junk out there. I would like to have zoom, strobe, power settings, and use batteries. Not really into the rechargeable unless it's a good one and can also take regular batteries. I also don't really want to spend a ton of money. I see many on Amazon that are cheap and I just don't know if they are junk. Anyone have a decent one and can share the model. These are not going into battle. Just spares. Is a 900 lumen light very bright? Thanks.

    150 lumen is bright lol... I would look for a 30 dollar one that takes AAA's. Those are the best for the price. I have a few extremely high powered ones. I vape and the same batteries for my vape (18650) are rechargeable and some flashlights are made to work with these types of batteries and are very good. Also cheap price and I already have tons of batteries and a charger so... that was the best choice for me. I have some stronger ones for night diving that are waterproof and fun to film underwater at night lol. It's like going into a haunted house... with sharks...

    The guns shops carry a lot of good tactical military grade flashlights like the Surefire. I bought a Surefire U2 several years ago when they began the LED military march against Maglite and it is one of the best I've worked with but it is an expensive brand. They used to be around $299 when they first came out, but can be found for <$200 now with all the competition. Beware of the cheap and super bright 'plastic' ones as they can melt and distort as they do get hot.

    Review this site: What Is The Best Small Flashlight Of 2016? | BTFlashlights I was surprised to see Thrunite TN36 is rated at 7,300 lumens! Wow!

    I doubt I would ever get my best deal at a gun shop. I have found that if they are not rude they are overpriced or both. I like guns but I am not a nut about it. Don't hunt.... people or animals.
