30 hour 15 lumen Filzer X1

 I saw this at a local outdoors store (MEC)  for $16.50

 Filzer I-BEAM X1 LED FLASHLIGHT (IBEAM-X1)

 - focusing lens provides 1x flood light to a 3x focused beam

- looks like it tailstands

Nichia LED  

- long runtime (30 hour) 
only 15 lumen though. Wish it was brighter. =( 
If it was brighter it'd be *perfect* ! What do you guys think?

Looks ok but a bit pricey. The 50cent "fauxton" at the cheap chinese stores is about as bright (also 1 5mm led) but obviously less features.

If you want one with a zoom type lens (though it doesn't zoom), I found one on amazon once for a few bucks. http://budgetlightforum.com/node/3074.

I agree.  I thought immediately of my amazing $1.99 lights I got of ebay that output almost twice the lumens.  Granted they run about half that time but still.
