    Depends...

    At what price point do you feel the bank is beginning to break?

    I carry the sure fire backup all the time. Great light but expensive. Stream light makes one almost identical to it for 1/3 of the cost. Can't remember the model #.

    LOL But it's LED Lumens. (I think that is what the package stated, can't remember) But it is only 2 AA batteries. :tongueout:

    This little guy runs on a single AA an puts out 85 lumens on the highest setting.

    Not bad for $33 and it's only a hair bigger than the battery.

    Fenix PD31.. I have two (one I carry and one on my AR) and my dad has one. Love them! Or go with the new PD32 which has the mode button on the side.

    Stream light Polytac or Protac 2L. Polytac is cheaper and great.. I have a Quark 123 and wasn't impressed. Started having issues with the tailcap within a month or two.
