Intersting. I have one that runs off of two AA, and one that runs off of a special 3v battery. One projects sorta far (not as good as my 2 C cell maglight) and one doesn't project far but lights up the whole area around me.

I NEED a LED flashlight that will actually project as far as a maglight.

$40 seems like a lot...but you do get what you pay for as far as flashlights go. I don't see the on/off switch...what kind of switch does it use and where is it located?

probably in the end cap. those lights are pretty nice...but i, like logan, am skeptical about their throw distance...can we get a MAG 6-cell comparison from 50 feet?

Thats a nice flashlight. I have a minimag with the 3 led conversion and 2 1w luxeon flashlights...but personally my favorite light is my 6 D-cell maglight with the magnumstar bulb. But I do like these luxeon leds they are very bright and nicley focused. Does it say how long those batteries last?

Yeah I got this LED Lenser by Coast and even at 1.3 watts it will blind you. Has one of those laser warning on the tip.
