Key Chain Flashlight

Post by JoJo » 12 Oct 2014, 09:31

The last time I needed to buy a flashlight, I asked for advice on this forum. I received great advice and bought four great pocket lights. Now I need some more advice. I would have posted on the flashlight section but I don't think there is any traffic there.
My last key chain light just bit the dust. I am not complaining because it was really cheap. BUT, when you need a light you need a light.

There seems to be many very good pocket lights and larger. Can someone suggest a really good well built key chain light? I am old and I get very attached to personal things so I want a light that will outlast me!!!

I have been carrying a AAA Maratac Rev. 3 for a few months and I think it is a decent light. Light weight and plenty of power for its size.

I have had this light for a while now, it's the brightest light running off a AAA I have seen for this price. It's also pretty durable.

I like these, actually I like most all of their products. Strong, bright and smooth so they don't hang up on crap in your pocket.

I like Thrunites. I have one of their big ones, Catapult V2, that use 2 18650 batteries.

I second the Thrunite...I bought 20 of their Ti's when they had them in a bundle of 10 for $70 2 years ago and now I have 2 left after my family stole them...a$$holes. But, if you want to have a keychain light you could weld with, check out this beast...I just ordered the 1200 lumen model yesterday and can't wait to try it out (and probably blind myself). Also if you check out his list of flashlights he has a Nitecore called the "TubeVN" that is a keychain light and really cool.

On purpose or after a few long island ice teas?
