I’d definitely go with Professional’s Favorite, 20 million candlepower spotlight. Sure, the SLA isn’t ultralight, and you need to cart a generator along to recharge every 15 minutes, but it’s my best flashlight.

Looks like emerrryjones too a photo from photographer Lee Crosbie for avatar…

The hardest part of this request is getting an easy to carry light that will not roll away when you set it down. I just ordered the Warsun X608 from Banggood.
I don’t expect it to be great. I will likely have to change the emitters, and the UI will probably be less than perfect, but it will slip into a pocket and it won’t roll away Big Smile

I completely forgot about Nitecore. They have a bunch of side-by-side battery lights and rectangular/square tube lights. EA45S, EC4GT, EA42, EC4S, P18, P36, C2, TM10K….

Emisar DT8 may work, with it’s wide head.

i walked in woods/camped with many lights, but the one that had the best size\brightness ratio was noctigon kr4. (i’m sure other light may surpas it, but i’m only talking about light i personally used) it is the light i carry and use at work, i also noticed in the woods, throwers are of little use. flooder is what you want, you can’s see far due to tress\bushes anyway. kr4 with narrow lens has still pretty wide beam, and reaches reasonably far. thou even with the same lens and different leds beam profile may be different, mine has nichia leds
