    Ive been looking for a light for my G40 as well as a decent sized flashlight.

    Id prefer a rechargable light, but not a requirement. I was looking at the mini 2 valkyrie. Rechargable and plenty of lumens.

    As for a regular flashlight, most of mine are in the 100 or less range. Work fine for what I need and my area. But should the power go out, would like something handy and not mounted on gun.

    Budget would like to keep both under $100 each (so $200 for the pair). Any suggestions otherwise are appreciated.

    I have one (Valkyrie mini) and it’s a good light for indoors, which is all I need

    I have the mini 2 on my G19. A decent light for that size. My full size ones I have the streamlight TLR series

    Same here (Valkyrie Mini). Plenty good indoor and close range. Like that it’s not too bulky.

    I'll be the odd man out. I prefer the PL-Pro over the mini. Better switch setup and uses the standard charger. The mini switches are not as easy to activate and the reverse polarity charging cable is a pain if you have other Olights as well.
    The Pro can be set down to 300lumens for indoor use if you don't need 1500.

    For a handheld light, I'd suggest the S2RII baton. It's a great size for carry, has a ton of output, and is feature rich.

    At $129 and $69 respectively, they will be right at your budget. If you can wait until the next sale, you can probably save $40-50 too.

    I don't get the fascination with built-in batteries. Are guns with built in mags also a good idea? Same principle, in essence. And even worse, what happens as the battery degrades? You have no options for replacement.
