beach rd army market seem to have the cheapest prices...

sound like the single aaa battery size mini maglite suit your needs. below $15.



Personally i have the double AA sized maglite and 2 double AAA sized maglite.
The double AA sized maglite seem to be the best in term of size, price and power. Not to forget AA Battery size is a convenient size.

I would recommend a Pelican Mitylite Plus 2AA instead of a Mag if you don't need focusibility. It's brighter, lighter and water proof to a deeper depth than the minimag.

If you drop a plastic torch, the plastic body will absorb some of the impact, if you drop a metal torch, it'll dent, and transfer a lot of energy to the filament, which may in turn break.

This one is a good choice too. Rated for hazardous environment, shorter too.

body expensive, replacement bulb is cheap. I rather the bulb blow than the body get damage.

and so far none of my mag ever fail after dropping. I use them in very rugged condition.

I'm stumped too... i'd rather get a Pelican/ Surefire/ Princeton Tec over a Mag... Mags are one of the worst around :S High energy consumtion, not pre-focused (it's a big thing to me :p), heavy, dents, not as powerful as they claim to be.

Filament bulbs are liable to fail when dropped... Just get a UK eLED 4AA with 10 hours of regulated run time... lol!
agree with Nerd, this light was Reviewed Here. Long runtime and realiable ;)
