Background is I work for a utility company at night so I need light mainly for up close work usually 5-20 feet from me. I like a lot of light as it usually dark as I work. I have a Leatherman Monarch 500 from Costco that I like but the beam is not what I want. There seems to be a big dead spot in the center, I want a better overall beam.
needs to use 1-2 AA batteries
needs to have a belt sheath
probably be a Cree bulb
size depends probably 4-6 inches?
like a long run time as will be used alot each night
maybe a high and low but I will probably always have it on high
prefer more spot flood lighting over long distance but ok if does both
No tinting needed prefer just be able to see stuff as is
price range up to $75ish maybe more for the right light
I have been checking out the reviews here but as many of you know.
Too many choices and since it is hard to try out lights in the real world, I need help from the flashlights gods.
