Gotta Light?

The best bang for your buck small format flashlight is the Streamlight TL-3. This is an incandescent light (opposed to LED) that runs on 3x3V Lithium batteries. The output is about 175 lumens. With a focus-able beam, you can actually illuminate whatever it is you need to see & carry this in your pocket. By comparison, a Maglite minimag is about $10 and puts out about 17 lumens. The TL-3 also fits perfectly in the little space behind the cupholders in the console of the 2002 Chevy Tahoe.
Anyway, trust me that this is a great light. Replacement bulbs can be ordered for about $5.42 and batteries in bulk for a dollar each.
Check it.
