    Just remember LEDs are not bright at a distance, it is good for a emergency though it'll will give you light but don't expect anything near maglight brightness

    not very bright at all, but good for an emergency, the one i have is pretty much indestructable, the lens can be taken out and used as a magnifying glass, and if you suspend it from a tree or some shit for a few hours it will point north

    Yeah we have one, don't know where it is. As stated, not a far ranging beam at all, but great for an emergency.

    I saw some a brookstone, like everyone said they aren't that bright, but they are way better than those "squeezer" flashlights

    Have one. Again, not bright at all. I just use a giant MAG-LITE. Illegal in NY because it could be used as a weapon.

    It's a beating stick, takes 6 C batteries. And gets hours and hours of life (surprisingly).

    Go for an ordinary battery one. The battery life is usually really long. And if you only use them in emergencies...
