I tried searching already, but haven't really found any advice on what I'm looking for.
I am an EMT, and work on both a paid and volunteer ambulance, along with dabbling with Rescue within my Fire Co. I currently carry a Surefire E2D LED flashlight. I Love the light, but its a pain to replace the batteries as often as I do.
I would like to pick up a new light with my Tax refund. I have thought it through a little bit, and these are the key features I am looking for.
- At least 200+ Lumens
- Variable output. At least High and Low (possibly with a strobe feature)
- recharagable, preferably with a base charger, as opposed to removable chargable batteries.
- metal construction (Not a fan of plastic lights)
- </= 6" Long, </=1.5 Wide
I also prefer a protected tailcap switch like the Surefire.
Basically I'm looking for suggestions on lights. Need to fit into a pocket and light enough to be comfortably carried.
