Good Sources for Lights, Chargers, and Batteries?

What are some of the better sources for lights, chargers, batteries, etc., with good products, prices, service, support?

Has anyone had particularly good or not-so-good experiences with certain companies or products?

Mainly good LED lights, both for riding and for other purposes while touring (while in camp, or reading at night in tent, for example).

For reading, I would like to find something that is capable of a low light setting (below 6 lumens) and long run times (the longer the better).

I'm willing to buy two or three different lights. One for throw, one for flood (while riding at night), and one for reading and other low-light situations.

This light was recommended to me, but it's way outside my budget. Adjustable from 0.5-260 lumens and takes AA's ought make it good for touring purposes...
