    150 lumen FL, 2 for $30

    I picked these up at Sams, $30 for a pack of 2 Element 150 lumen LED flashlights with 3 AAA batteries each. Features:

    5.9 ozs with batteries
    5.5" long
    1" wide body, 1.5" wide head (quarter will not get stuck!!!)

    1) 2 mode - bright (150L) and dim (75L)
    2) 2 beams in one (intense spot and wide flood)
    3) Lifetime LED
    4) Aerospace grade aluminum body
    5) Electronic tail cap switch
    6) Lifetime LED
    7) Shatter resistant poly carbonate lens
    8) Water resistant and shockproof
    9) Removable wrist lanyard

    They do not have a clip, but I happen to have a clip in my tool box from some old tool long gone that snaps right on.

    Not the best or fanciest, but pretty nice set for the money ($15 each). I'll take some shots of the light on in the dark for comparison next. These things are super bright.....blinding!!!

    Hopefully they fixed the battery carrier. I had one of these (and know of several others as well) that the carrier fell apart when changing batteries rendering it useless.

    Fortunately Sams has an easy return policy.

    That would inhale with great force. The package shows black plastic battery holders and the ones in the actual FLs is a white plastic piece with a metal base on the bottom. Comes with a 1 year warranty, so we'll see. I appreciate the heads-up. I just went outside and lit up the back yards 2 houses down (and the lots are 200 feet wide). I'm giving one to the wife. For home / truck use, hopefully it will hold up.

    For just a little more money, check out 4 Sevens Quark Mini 123. 2.3 inches long and on high, it has 189 out the front lumens. I have one and it really puts out some light.

    Never argue with an idiot. They drag you down to their level, and beat you with experience.

    Thanks. If these don't make the cut, that looks like a sweet light.

    Thanks for the links. The Sammy specials are working out fine for now. I was there, they were there...yada, yada, yada...For my carry needs, it seems to work fine. I'll keep these links in case they don't cut it.

    A year or two ago we bought a five pack of the precursors to those lights from Sam's. Not as much output, single brightness, but they look the same. Still very bright. Mostly reliable, but a couple have started to flicker on and off. Don't know if it is the battery or contacts, or the electronics. Still for the price, very nice. Have them in cars, trucks, tool bags, everywhere. Battery life is good - it slowly gets dimmer over time - no big failure.

    For pocket carry I just got a Fenix PD20 - pocket sized, 190 lumens, six different output settings. Very neat. It is similar to the 4Sevens posted above.
