What's a Nice AA or 18650 Small Light?

Hey all.

I don’t have much of a collection, but I do like to pick up a new one every now and then. Right now I am looking for a small light with some power that I can use as a carry light or maybe leave it in the car should an emergency arise where a nice, bright light would be useful.

Right now I have one of the SK zoom lights that takes a single AA cell and an SK98 (I think) that a member graciously gifted me several months ago. It takes a single 18650 cell and it is a great light. I don’t know what he done to it, but it works great and I leave it on my nightstand.

I think I’d like something a bit better than those. I just watched a video on a Thrunite that was rechargeable and was magnetic. Said it was 1300 lumens or so. Looked to be about as big as a “D” battery and priced at $39.99. what’s the thoughts on this light? Is there better lights for the money that I should check out?

Any help you care to give will be appreciated.
Thank you.
Larry

My favorite flashlight right now is the FW3A.

It's pretty compact, and I love the UI.

BLF A6 is pretty difficult to beat IMO. 3 tints available and a 18350 tube also. Often on sale for less than $20. Nothing is glued so if modding is your thing your golden. Tailstands well and deep carry clip too. Star

There is no smaller 18650 light than the DQG Tiny 18650. Zebralight SC64 runs a very very close 2nd.

My EDC for quite a while (and probably for a long time to come) is an MH20. Great UI, built-in charging, 2-stage switch, nice deep-carry clip, blinks out the voltage, hella bright, nice ct/tint, barely bigger’n the 18650 it’s wrapped around, and fitty bux with coupon (ask around).
