    Got it at Lowes or Home Depot.

    When I walk the dog at night I carry a Mini-Maglite 2 AAA.

    Mini Maglite 2xAA upgraded with a TerraLUX LED and an intelligent tail switch (3 brightness modes, strobe mode, plus red LED to indicated power / find light in the dark). Always with me. Plus I often bring a Petzl headlamp with 3 AA batteries and a very bright LED for hands free use (including night riding).

    The specs are consistent with my experience. I particularly like how resistant the stainless steel is to pocket wear.

    it's usually three or four all day, every day for me. the big one on the belt is a johnson bm-10, it's the big boy with heavy lumins, and the big battery that can also start my car in the winter. then there's the cat-400 i keep in my pocket that runs on four d batteries. it's for general duty. i call it, 'the turd,' 'cause it smells like one for some reason. i usually also have my pen flashlight in my breast pocket to use with my phone that doesn't currently light in any way whatsoever. i normally also carry a flashing bike light with me too in case there's an emergency. knock on wood.

    The flash on my phone can be used as a steady light in "light" mode.

    Have the same light....I use it as a headlight for the huffy when I commute on it. I have some NiCd batteries in it....they hold a charge for quite some time.

    Okay, only 95 lumen, but still a very bright light with good run time.

    Ah...175 lumens for the one I have, and focusable from a flood to a narrow beam.

    I usually don't carry a light, but if I am, it's a Petzl headlamp or the NiteRider rechargeable off my bike, akin to the new Lumina series.

    Do not need a flashlight during the day. Where I lives there is sunlight on during the day.

    At night howefer, I would carry either Shining Beam Caveman, or a Romisen RCN3. I also use both for bike lights, mounted with twofish flashlight mounts.

    I've got a bunch of Cree LED's units from various companies, but don't tend to carry any in the summer time, since I keep several at work and several at home, maybe half of them XP-G units. Once it starts getting dark when I leave home and leave work, I will start carrying my incan 6p, because I have found through years of abusing lights that they still haven't made a LED driver that I trust as well as an old fashion bulb, and while I could direct drive a LED instead, I like the steady one hour I get from the 6P well enough over having a curve to the output.
    Bring back the Sig Test!
