    I have a few maglites I've had for years. They eat up batteries like my car guzzles gas, but they're amazingly durable and bright. One takes 6 D-cells and the other takes 3. The 6 D-cell one I just got for the novelty and because it was on sale for like $20 at Ace one day. The 3 cell usually stays in my car, and has come in handy countless times. I should probably get some LED models, but they're too pricey, and I'm broke.

    Don't know about the light that the OP is referring to but there are some good lights coming out of China. I have a couple of new Fenix lights and I think they are very good and not too expensive. My most used lights around the house are actually maglights.

    I've owned maglights for a long time and I thought they were good. Then when I got good lights from Pelican and Streamlight I realized how bad the incandescent maglights really were. Mag finally came out with LED lights and they were not sophisticated designs but they work well. I have several of them because they are cheap, and D batteries are easy to find and last a long time. I had a minimag that I put a Terralux LED in and it worked very well, but the batteries leaked and killed it.

    Mag now has some more sophisticated lights that are small, bright and have various output modes. I still prefer my Fenix but the mags are a good choice for someone that doesn't want to have to figure out which of the other brands are good and which of the other brands are junk.

    Wait. It gets dim instead of shutting off? So it's not regulated?

    I do not like tactical bezels. I run a MTE SSC P7. Driven by one 18650. INCREDIBLY bright for the size, good run time and I carry a spare battery. Around $30 online, then add a charger and batteries for $20. Small enough to fit on handlebars or helmet or fit in a pocket.

    Did you know that you can get drop-in LED replacements for the lamps in Maglites? They still have the focus function, do not drain batteries fast, and are very bright. Sears sells them. I have one in my 2 D-cell Maglite, and it's nice.

    ^^^That is why I will always own at least one MagLite. It's the only flashlight that I would bring to a bar fight and still actually use for, y'know, lighting stuff up.

    $5.26. 300 lumens. 1 AA battery. Free shipping. Haven't hit the end of the lifespan on the first battery but this thing is cooler than hell and brighter than my double C Maglite with LED bulb.

    Figure it should be able to use a lithium. Reading reviews of the some of the cheap lithium batteries available online and I see too many problems so I didn't buy any of those. The alkaline AA seems to be working okay but more milli-amp-hours are always better.
