Hello form Georgia
« on: December 02, 2019, 12:25:20 AM »
I am looking for 1 (one) backup flashlight to complement my Head lamp for survival situations.
My headlamp uses AAA batteries.
I keep a spare set of batteries in my pack.

I want my backup flashlight to:
Use a "standard" "common" rechargeable battery.
I want it to be small.
I want it to be high quality.

Looking for answers on this forum.

For your back up light .... What do you call small for a light? 3 inches long 4, 5?......When you say "standard" rechargeable batteries , are you talking about the lithium cells , or the NiMH (Nickel-Metal Hydride) Are you looking for the AAA sized Rechargeable (10440 equivalent in Lithium-ion) the AA size (14500 in Lithium) or a larger cell like the 18650 lithium in a smallish light? Do you want a single cell light or multiple cells? Are you wanting a more floody light or more throwy? I know you said a "common rechargeable battery" , but now days the lithium-ion cells are considered common for the most part.  A simple UI or one with all the bells and whistles? There are just soooooo many lights out there now days it would help if you narrow down the criteria a bit.

Here are some of my reviews of lights that are small to smallish , and some of them can use the Alkaline / NiMH / or Lithium-ion cell in a single light. I will note the ones that are "dual chemistry" with ***.

***  AA sized / Dual chemistry....

18650 cell ...

USB rechargeable headlamp / EDC 18650 sized.......

*** AA sized / Dual chemistry ...

USB rechargeable Headlamp / EDC 18650 sized

*** AA sized / Dual chemistry ...

These are just a few for starters and also the Smallish / smaller lights. You can get even smaller ones , but you don't get much run time from the tiny ones for camping and hiking and such........There are a lot more reviews I have done and many many more lights that are small out there. Hope this can help get you started in the right direction and feel free to PM me or post again if I can be of any further assistance.
