I misread it as you wanted 25 or so ~$1 lights. Foot in Mouth

 

I had some ideas, but nevermind.

Any convoy will do it, depends on what form you like!
Don’t think any of them will give you 2 hours on high though, but with the medium and low mode you will have plenty hours to spare….
(C8,M1 or S….)

I’d also look at the well respected Small Sun ZY-T13 or ZY-T08…not 3 mode…but solid performers. Currently on group buy at WB.

No one, after lighting a lamp, puts it away in a cellar nor under a basket, but on the lampstand, so that those who enter may see the light.

This is where the problem is. There is no good budget zoomies to date AFAIK.

If you don’t mind reflector lights the Convoy C8 as suggested above will cut it for you.

This C12 meets your requirement except maybe the 2 hr run time – maybe in Lo mode:
C12 XM-L2 U3 3-Mode

Go for the Convoy L4, and don’t forget to get the tint you prefer.

Flashlight designers should look at lighthouses and pottery.
这些谁设计的手电筒应该看灯塔,以及在陶器。
