    Hello, mountaingreek, and welcome to the forum! I'm sure that all of the manufacturers you mentioned have suitable lights for your needs. Speaking for myself, my favorite AA light is the Sunwayman V10A, which can also run on the Li-ion 14500 rechargeable batteries. You might also want to look at the line of LED lights by EagleTac, including the D25A series (available with either a "twisty" or a "clicky" switch).

    The Quark Mini is also a nice light if you want something small. Some member here from Europe can probably point you towards store there.

    What size of light do you prefer?
    What kind of beam?
    Runtime?
    Price?
    How will it be used?

    What are you going to use the light for?

    How much do you want to spend?

    What battery do you want to use? - AA, AAA, C, D , CR123 19650?

    well.. since you already have the mag light I would get a Fenix..

    LD22 if you can afford it, it's a great light
    LD15 won't be any brighter than the maglite, and only runs for an hour on high
    E21 is nice

    I don't have a Klarus, but they are good quality lights

    You could also get a Maglite drop-in along with a smaller 1 or 2 AA light. Keep all of your lights up to date. Also, can you get packages? It might be easier (but maybe slower) to buy a light not available locally and wait for it to ship to you.

    I recently got a Zebralight SC51c and I like it alot. It's a warm white LED and provides great color rendering along with many modes. High mode is really bright while low mode is great for getting around the house at night. There's also a brighter Cool white version (SC51) and a warm/neutral white version (SC51w) if you want different tints.

    The Fenix lights are great too, Fenix Store is a great place to get them in the US, but I'm not sure about Greece. There are stores that stock Fenix lights in Europe, but I don't know which ones.

    Also check out the 4sevens Quark lights. From what I hear, they are nice and also come in neutral white if you don't like the cool white LED tint. The Quarks Minis make great keychain lights too.
