I'm very pleased with my Fenix PD35. Durable and extremely bright.

Been awhile since I've posted about flashlight's. I graduated to more expensive light's. However, last weekend, Harbour Freight had their Quantum led flashlight on sale for $9.99, plus the 20 percent off coupon. This appears to be the same light as the Bell and Howell tac light. I grabbed up two. For the price, it make's a nice little 558 lumen flashlight.

+1 for Streamlight
https://www.streamlight.com/products...ld-flashlights If you're needs are serious/critical I highly recommend them!

Surefire are also excellent but overpriced.

I have always been partial to 3-D cell Maglites. Nice and reliable, but I hate having to look for bulbs now and then. Always carried 2 of them in my big truck.I have one in silver, 2 in black. One under my truck seat, one by the back door, one next to the bed.

Trying out new LED lights a few years ago I bought a Fenix PD35TAC and I like that a lot. 1000 lumens, very bright. I have a tactical bag that I pack with scanners and accessories for road trips and that Fenix is always in my go-to bag.

Also bought a couple of CREE UltraFire eBay cheapies that I keep near my desk, and I have a smaller 3AA Maglite mounted on my desk for a quick grab light. I also keep emergency Red Cross lights in every room, the kind that stay plugged in to an outlet as a night-light, then come on fully charged if I lose power. I have a couple other cheapies that I don't even know their brand names. Not until I started typing this post did I realize just how many flashlights I do have. They all have their place, I suppose!
