Default LED flashlight

Anyone have any suggestions on a good hunting flashlight that's very bright and compact?

I will shortly...
Picked up a 1000 lumen led flashlight on ebay the other day for $22. Takes a special rechargeable battery that I have to buy, but they aren't very expensive. The light has the new Cree xm-l T6 led. Supposed to be the brightest out there, up to 250m. Will let you know when I get it in...

Dorcy International 41-4299 220-Lumens Rechargeable LED Flashlight with AC and DC Charging Adaptors


Bought this light several months back on Amazon for $37.00 and free shipping. I like it. Not super compact but not too big.

Olight and Fenix make very good products. Check out this forum for reviews. Some of these guys are flashlight fanatics.

Ok, got the light and the battery in the other day. This thing is unreal bright. I went outside last night after a good 8+ hour charge and lit up the neighborhood. It will light up the house at the end of my street (easily 300 yds away). I wouldn't want to shine one of these into someones face unless they were attacking... Best $48 I've spent on a light Rechargeable batteries + flashlight.

Hard to beat the mini-maglite LED for function, durability, and price.

I hear ya, I own a few of those myself... They are maybe 30 lumens though. Not that you really need a 1000 lumens minimag sized light, but it's nice to have if you want to brighten up an area looking for a dead deer or whatever. The flash light I bought was only $22. I had the option for a cheaper rechargeable battery, but I found one that would last 8+ hrs on full power setting. These new leds that are coming out are really impressive. Just can't really explain it, you just have to see one.

I'm also a fan of the Redline. I was going to buy one online before I stumbled onto this one. The price is about the same for both and this one makes batteries simple.

If $ isn't an issue this light is top notch bar none! I use this on the job (USCG) and this light is bulletproof. Drop it, drown it, shoot it or run it over with a truck and this thing will still light up every time. Gonna pay the $$$ but you will never need to buy another. Like I said the Coast Guard and all other Federal agencies use these lights exclusively for law enforcement and tactical operations.

180 lumen in 4C maglight, and 100 lumen in a regular old 2D cell
flashlight...About $15.00 per bulb...
Very impressed with the light, and batteries are reported to last
longer...

I got a Fenix LD10 for Christmas and used it on a hunt last week. I am very impressed with this little light. I have bought and broken about a dozen of LED from Harbor freight tools and determined you get what you pay for.
