I have a two brightness level flashlight, that takes three C cells. To be really useful when camping and hiking, I would have to choose between batteries and food.
I am looking for a medium bright that will last a awhile, not illuminate the moon...
Thanks in advance.
I'm open to a two, three or more variable output.
Thanks in advance.

Are you looking for a rechargeable LED light to save on constantly buying alkaline batteries for it? If so, I can definitely recommend the Streamlight Stinger Classic LED model.

Four modes, one of them strobe.
10 hours on one charge if you use low mode, which is 130 lumens.

You mentioned hiking and camping in your original post. I have a few decades of experience in this domain. Before making recommendations, it would be helpful to learn a few details:
1. What is the duration of your typical camping/hiking adventure?
2. Established campgrounds? Or backcountry?
3. Do you travel alone, or with others?
4. What kind of headlamp do you use? And, what type of battery does it require?
5. What is your budget?
6. Do your camping adventures extend into winter? (Colder temps will impact battery performance.)
7. What is your typical pack base weight?

Thanks too all. I think I will get three of either the 2-D or 2C Maglite.
Also, my favorite on the road was my trusty 9V PAL light. My trusty little gem that has on-off by button push, plus night-light mode, flashing, and bright. I'm surprised no one bought the rights and came back out with it.
Do you guys think D cells may phase out?
