First ever post YAY!
Im having trouble deciding on an EDC light for either daily lighting chores or self-defense (I.E. use with a pistol, I have a CHL). Here are my requirements and preferences.
-MUST BE both durable and reliable
-$80 to $100 range
-200+ lumen preferred but might go 150-199 lumen if its a great light
-Id like it to use either 1 or 2 AA (LI rechargeable or NiMH rechargeable preferred) or 1 to 2 Cr123, RCR123 and/or 1x18650
-Small enough to carry in a pocket but big enough comfortably fit in my hand
-non-recessed forward tactical/momentary tail cap switch.
-MUST have a pocket clip. I plan on carrying it in a pocket not a holster.
-good balance between spill and throw
-multiple modes would be nice but not a must.
I have been looking around but just cant make up my mind. Id list some of the manufacturers iv been looking at but I want to see if there are any surprises in store for me.
Thanks for any and all input gentlemen and gentle-ladies (are there many women on here?).
