      I have a Mag lite 3 c cell. and I have a mini mag on my belt. I have enough lights in my car. I have a spot light in the trunk and i have another smaller light that is in the backseat area all the time and i even have a little light that is not bad on my keys. So i would say im good on lights LOL.

            I am well known for carrying flashlights day or night.You never know when you'll be out after dark or entering a dark building.
            On my belt,on or off the clock,I carry a Streamlight Scorpion.In my turnout coat as a volunteer firefighter,I have a Pelican Little Ed with rechargeable batteries to void the warranty,and I also bought an LED kit to go into my Minimag.

                I'm using a Stinger XT right now, I'd really like to switch to the Strion but I can't justify the expense.

                        Ahh... Funny that this old topic got brought up again... I was just thinking of this...

                        I've used my Stinger XT for a few years now, and aside from replacing the worn-out battery pack a couple times, haven't had any issues... But I recently got my hands on this really nice little LED light that a friend of mine picked up at Wal-mart of all places... It's about the size of the Surefire tactical series lights... And when I compared, it was actually BRIGHTER than my stinger... a freakin $10 generic wal-mart light! Sure, it's not rechargable, (uses 3 AAAs), but it's LED so the batteries don't need replacing nearly as often as on a regular light... Not to mention that it's so small it fits neatly on the duty belt, no larger than my pager holder, so it's a lot more comfortable to wear....

                        I hate to say it, but I think my Stinger may just become my backup light from now on... (And my friend may have to go purchase a new one, since this one aint coming off my belt anytime soon... LOL)

                        I'll see if I can locate info on it.. It doesn't have a model # anywhere on it, but I know it's made by Garrity..

                        EDIT: Found their info page... Doesn't give too much info about it, unfortunately, but I can tell you it sure is nifty.. lol

                          In Canada they're (or something like them) are sold at Canadian Tire. The one I have is LED with 2 different levels of light. It uses 3 AAA batteries.
                          It's great for indoors but not so good for outside. I find this will all LED lights. I use it around the house. On the job I'm presently carrying the Streamlight Twintask a LED & xeon(?) combination. The problem is that it uses lithium batteries that burn out quickly & are expensive. The only good thing is that when the xeon light goes out due to weak batteries the LED continues to work. I used to have a Surefire until I lost it. When the lithium batteries got weak it would stop working with no advanced notice. It did not gradually go dimmer. I always had to have a spare set of batteries with me.

                            They actually have a forum dedicated to flashlights?

                                Yep, I picked up one of these beauties awhile back at Target and I love it. If you decide to get a LED light, opt for the 3-watt instead of the 1-watt. Bridgegate's link shows the 3-watt one. It's a much brighter light.

                                I also agree w/ Hotel Security that LED lights are not up to the outdoor challenge yet. Stick with the Scorpion, etc. for use outside.
