I bought a 3 C cel GoVolt led light. Amazingly bright and you can focus the beam.
I've never seen a flashlight so bright. I use it on my external preflights at night. It puts every other flashlight I have used to shame.

I use Cygolites which I can use on my bike and around the house. They use a Li-ion battery that is USB recahargable and they are water resistant. Not a typical flashlight but bright and light weight. The one I use is 360 lumens.

Why aluminum? Flood, spot or adjustable?

This particular Fenix doesn't use AA, but they have many that do, wander around their site. Fenix PD-35 (http://www.fenixgear.com/fenix-pd/pd35-xml2-u2.html)

Step up to four AAs and get a Sunwayman D40A. 980 lumens in a compact package.

Buy it stock from Amazon (http://www.amazon.com/Sunwayman-XM-L2-D40A-Lumens-Flashlight/dp/B00DDCO86Y/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1389482214&sr=8-2&keywords=sunwayman+d40a), or buy a modified copy which puts out 1480 lumens, here (http://www.candlepowerforums.com/vb/showthread.php?371979-WTS-D40Avn-Compact-AA-Lumen-Monster-4-4A-1480-Lumen).

Run Eneloop XX cells in it.

I bought a few Ultrafire model Ssc p7-c flashlights for my safety kit. These are pocket size 900 lumen led lights. Intensely bright. Aluminium construction, waterproof, made in Japan. They use two litium 3v camera type batteries or a rechargable 6 v cell.

i paid 35 dollars for each flashlight at a marine store.

ive had them for two years, no problem. The light is so intense that the flashlight becomes hot to touch. Perhaps 20 minutes of light available at full power.

That looks like a very good bit of kit !

I use the LED Lenser range. have a H14 head lamp, this can also be used hand held or mounted to a bike etc. I use 3 aa rechargables for between 13 to 30 hours life. have also had the H7, take 4x aaa's, this is a better unit for tramping as it is lighter and can be wound down to a very low setting for a life of up to 60 hours. the H14 has a much longer long range for spotlighting. I also have a handheld P7 which is mostly used fitted to my 22 for spotlighting as well.

I've got a three AAA, 8 LED, with a magnetic pocket clip. Its called the Larry by NEBO. Got it at the local hardware store, <$10.00. Had two, but the washing machine repair guy saw so impressed with it that we gave him one.
Used it last week to light up the batteries on Truth so I could attach charging cables. Magnet stuck to fuel line leading to an injector
