Best blinky light that uses AAA batteries

I have a set of four AAA rechargeables, so would like to use them in a good quality front light. I bought a really cheap one on Ebay for $6, it worked fine, but the constant beam was not bright at all, and now I broke it's bracket accidentally.

I'd like to keep this under $20.

Looks like I should forget about using AAA batteries to get decent light power as the Cateye 320 has 8 times the candlepower as the 410, for almost the same price. Should I go for that, or anything else I should consider for a flashing front light?
