  1. This is off topic for these forums, but I thought I may as well try.

    Im looking for a LED flashlight, here are my potential requirements:


    • Very bright (maybe 3W Cree, though im not sure I know what im talking about, i was referred to them many years ago).

    • single LED (only ONE led in flashlight please, no multi LED arrays).

    • Small and compact, fitting only two CR123 rechargable lithium batteries and the LED itself.

    • High quality (prefereably not made in china...:) )

    • Below ≈ $30 - $40.

    • Looks good.

    I prefer a link to a trustworth retailer for the flashlight, another for 2 rechargable lithium CR123 batteries would be appreciated.


    Im sorry if no one here knows enough about LEDs...

    "Im sorry if no one here knows enough about LEDs"...

    Me too. I have seen bright LED flashlights all over the place. Google can't point you in the right direction?

    It could, but people often know what im looking for better than google, and google doesn't tell me which sites are trustworthy, so I thought I may as well see if anyone here happens to have suggestions.

    You have to do some of your own research sometimes. Look at the sites location, security certificates, and contact info. Have you searched for "High Power Compact LED Flashlight"? directly, maybe including your location info? I just returned from Las Vegas. One of the stewardesses had a very brite small LED flashlight. She got it from Wal-Mart
