So, I've been hunting for a light that I can pocket carry, that has a good reliable switch, a pocket clip and is suitably bright that comes in under $20 for a long time.
Well, I've found it.
1W 1AA light by Energizer. $15.94 from Target. Lifetime guarantee XR-C LED pocket clip (that i reversed to carry button up) and I love it.
lots of reviews and info here
