Flashlights seem to improve in lumens and cost all the time.
What's your home defense light?
It used to be buy as powerful as you can to blind an opponent. Not any more as some pocket lights are too powerful for indoors use.
What is your preferred tool for checking out a suspicious noise in an indoor urban environment in the dark? What do you carry with you?
Mine is a Surefire E2D.

Duracell 500 lumen. Got 3 at costco for about $36 bucks. However although I got them they are not my primary plan. I have night lights set at the far end of the hallway leading to my bedroom (30 feet). Also night lights in 2 rooms on the way down the hall. Lights up the hallway quite decently. I wait in my bedroom in the dark with a shotgun and a glock (behind 12 inches of hardwood) while my wife dials 911 and covers the bedroom window with her glock.
I've considered putting the duracell on bright on the floor in front of our bedroom if there is time just to provide some blinding light and add to the ease of target acquisition.
That's our plan, what's yours?

I have (2) at home that I use. One is a Surefire 6P LED the other is a Pelican M-6. Both are very good but I prefer the M-6 fr the better "light" it throws. Good luck!

Streamlight PT2L. It serves my purpose well.

I carry a Streamlight Stinger on my duty belt. At night it sits in it's charger next to my bed. Guess what I'm going for.
All of my guns scattered around my house, in individual quick access handgun safes, have a Streamlight handheld light next to them. One also has a Streamlight TRL1s mounted on it because I happen to have one laying around. I keep buying flashlights every year. I have 4 right here with me now. :) I prefer a handheld light but you do have to think about how you open doors, call 911 and do a lot of other things with a flashlight in one hand and a gun in the other. My lighting approach is to put bright night lights all through the house and flood lights outside. A good tip is to buy one or more of those remote control things that you plug a light into and then allows you to simply press a button from anywhere in the house to turn them on. We have to bright table lamps connected this way and if I hear anything at night, I simply turn them on and I can see all but in the spare bedrooms. I live in a small ranch house so it is easy. In my last house, a formal 4 bedroom Colonel, it was more difficult due to the two levels and closed layout.

Muzzle Flash Just kidding. Big mag light and a small steel LED light. I only need to see them, maybe blind them for a moment if given and chance. I dont need to incinerate them. Im not urban but rural though.
