    Cree torch are good and powerful. locally u find is running on AA or AAA battery which is what most ppl want, cree LED really suck up the battery juice very fast, for better endurance, should try using 18650 battery type cree torch. 18650 battery is a typical 3.7V battery but charge up to 4.2V. most cree torch that run on 1x 18650 can last abt 3hr to 5hr

    one cheap and good way to get cheap cree torch and 18650 battery and charger, u can try "www.dealextreme.com" they are pretty reliable and best of all is that the shipping is FREE

    I bought mine from this seller. Selling from home in Bedok.
    For macro, better to get one with wider angle beam, those narrow beam can shine very far but angle is smaller.

    Did someone swap the u and r keys on your keyboard?

    Well, maybe your father-in-law has a nice touch, but we really shouldn't discuss that here, should we?

    All those recommendations are a bit old. Some way more than last year's tech. If have a little more budget, try to get something better than those dealextreme offerings.

    You can try candlepowerforums for some inspiration.

    4Sevens is a good value for money manufacturer. Free shipping from their website too.

    For crawling in the dark searching for macro. The Quark RGB might be an interesting choice, it's also more of a flood, making it useful for searching things. If you just want want bright white, the Quark regular and turbo will be good choices. The turbo version has a bit more throw.

    The Zebralight H501 NW is also a personal favourite. The beam is a wide perfect flood.
