please rec me a flashy

I've accumulated a lot of 18650 batteries for my mobile power charger so want a decent flashlight to go with them.

Want something with decent output >500lm (not too familar with difference between flood, throw, etc.. sorry need to do some more research on this)

Cigar shaped

Strobe/SOS modes (preferably seperate from l-m-h)

So far leaning towards nlight st50 from intl-outdoor. Any other suggestions?

Solarforce L2T, Shiningbeam Blaze or Pocketrocket or S-mini, the XIN-TD C8 from intl-outdoor if you want a small thrower.

Rats, finally sold my 2010 509hp Mustang...now I can buy more lights!

Sold the red one too! Now guess what I drive, doing my penance for 500 hp commuters...

All nice choices. I have the ST50 from IOS and P-Rocket from Shiningbeam, both great lights and pretty decent throwers. I want an S-Mini. Balder BD-2 from IOS is another good one, but it needs batteries that allow current draw over 2A, no cheapies.
