Just a few thoughts on using something you already may be carrying.
After reading many posts discussing various flashlights, I downloaded a flashlight app to my Android phone. It seems to to pretty well for medium range using the LED light for photography, and can be pre-set for a strobe effect when engaged. Another thing i found out is if you just set the camera app for video mode with light, you not only get the light, but can look around corners, and record evidence at the same time.
I don't always have nothing to say, but when I do, I post it on Facebook.

I use this app just for a back up to my Streamlight ProTac 2L.
I can't beat someone with my cell, but my flashlight... And my cell battery isn't something I trust my life on. Hell I can barely watch The Walking Dead for very long!

I have a flashlight app on my iPhone5. But it is a government issued phone and the password is so long and convoluted that by the time I get the light on, the sun will most likely be up and I won't need it anymore.

Just avoid the Brightest Flashlight app for Android. It works but is meant to steal your information and sell it to other companies. Always read the user agreements.

Gotta reply just because you mentioned The Walking Dead. Awesome show, can't wait for its return this fall.
