  I second this. I now use them exclusively, while my trusty Maglite
sits in a drawer. I use Photon lights,, and I
like them a *lot*. If you like to use flashlights to peer into
machines and such, and like the idea of having a tiny but astoundingly
bright one to carry with you everywhere along with your wallet or
house keys, this is the way to go.
