About those flashlight auctions you linked to...

The batteries (and chargers) look pretty bad.  In fact, flashlight + battery + charger combos on eBay are almost always bad.  I'll let the experts recommend a better flashlight, along with nice batteries and a charger.

You can get decent batteries and a charger pretty cheaply.

Cheapest 18650 batteries that I recommend:

TrustFire Protected Flames.  I would buy from DinoDirect or Manafont.

http://www.manafont.com/product_info.php/protected-trustfire-18650-37v-2400mah-rechargeable-batteries-flame-2pcsset-p-5560

Cheapest charger that I can recommend:

TrustFire TR-001.  (These have a US plug format.  What do you use in Israel?)

By the way, do you know the dangers of using a flashlight that takes more than one li-ion battery?  You will need a multimeter to frequently test the batteries.

in israel we use europe format.

i need that flashlight for a 10-15 minutes for week, i have a multimeter.

I prefer to buy everything in one package, and later upgrade the batteries and charger.

Here's the TrustFire TR-001 with europe format:

I don't know about getting everything in one package.  I would be surprised if anyone could find a respectable (yet inexpensive) combo on eBay.  Good luck in your search!

Welcome to BLF, Big_White!

None of the lights you listed provide you with your criteria. The closest I can think of for you is a Skyray King. Electronic switch on the side with only two modes plus a hidden strobe you never have to see if you don’t want to. It always starts on High, has fantastic heat sinking and a throws better than most multi-XML torches while giving excellent flood. It’s also jacket or cargo pocket friendly due to it’s short format (about the size of a soda can). I can’t recommend it enough!

it is a weapon light for airsoft. that why i need one mode

sky king is too big.

there is no moddification or way to convert the circut or some thing?

my current setup is UltraFire WF-501B with XM-L with modded switch fouch button.
and now i need a more lumens.

Romisen RC-T602 might suit your needs. Great throw and pretty smal.

Seen lots of good reviews about the HD2010 aswell.

I play airsoft too. I have numerous G&P, G&G, KWA, and King Arms M4s. (I have spent way to much on airsoft)

I think it depends on whether you are playing woodland or CQB?

For woodland a 1-Mode C8 style light would be ideal because of its throw/flood combination.
For CQB I actually think a 1-Mode 501/502/504 with an XM-L would be a good light because of the flood and light weight.

I personally use a SolarForce L2 with a 1-Mode R5 and pressure switch mounted to a vertical fore grip.

The best light for airsoft in my opinion would be a 1-Mode XM-L U2 C8 pulling 2.5 amps and an OP reflector.
