I just bought a couple nice little flashlights.. One for me and while I was at it, the Wife wanted a little flashlight for her keychain... Just so happens Fenix-Store (now called 4sevens.com) had a really nice little one on sale for a decent price.. So I got her that too... It's like 2" long and probably twice as bright as a maglight 3c...
I'll check the specs
Posting it up because I know LonelyRaven is really into these things and guided me in this direction... and I had a few observations/questions.. and hell just wanted to tell everyone about the good deal on such a bright ass tiny light (wifes).. mine was pretty close to I am guessing retail as it's pretty much the same price everywhere...
Here is her little bug
Introducing the P1D CE Q5
The Fenix P1D CE(Cree Edition) is a digitally controlled constant current multilevel flashlight Fenix has to offer. It has five modes: Primary -> Max -> Low -> Strobe Mode -> SOS Mode, which not only allows the user to select the best compromise between brightness and runtime for any given task but also has ability to aid in an emergency. The P1D CE does all this and still retains a very compact size. If youâ€™re looking for solid reliability, digitally regulated brightness, and compact size, this Fenix is for you.

Turn the head of the flashlight clockwise to turn on the flashlight. A counter clockwise turn will then switch it off. To toggle between brightness levels, turn the light on, and then turn it off. Within 1.5 seconds after being turned off, twist the head on again and it will be switched to the next brightness level. Just do the same thing to switch it to the third stage and so forth. Keep the light off for over 1.5 seconds, and the light will turn completely off, and the regulative circuit will be restored.
Limited lifetime warranty. Repair is free, but the cost of parts will be charged.
