    Got a new pocket light figured I'd post a little review. Its super small, bright, and very light. Great for hiking and just to keep in your pocket all the time. Its the Streamlight MicroStream.

    Its around $14 to $25 dollars depending on where you look.

    1.5 hrs runtime, not great but for how bright and how small it is, it's pretty good. Plus if I'm hiking or something I'll have a few extra batteries anyway (all hiking gear I have all uses AAA's).
