    Okay.
    Walmart sells a small AAA flashlight for $1.00. With batteries. They also sell a headlamp for $1.00 with batteries. Same location in the store. With the big bucks flashlights & headlamps.

    My friend gave me this one as a gift:https://olightworld.com/led-flashlig...-i3e-eos-color

    It is now my EDC flashlight! Love it. Works well. Holds up to the abuse of keychain + woman's purse

    I forgot to add. Both the flashlight & headlamp use LED bulbs.

    I have a Fenix LD01 and a Fenix E05, both single AAA battery driven. The LD01 has three intensities and the E05 a single. They are a bit more expensive than Walmart models but since I only carry one Fenix and my headlamp I'm willing to pay a little more for reliability.

    I ended up with the Fenix E05 with 3 brightness modes and 85 Lumens max.

    Nice! I have the older single level E05 and see that they've updated it for three output levels. Fenix make great flashlights. I have the angled LD01 for my motorcycle kit as well.

    It is nice to have a headlamp with bright and dim and also a red setting so you are not blinding your hiking buddies in camp.

    I also use a Fenix 1xAAA flashlight with 3 brightness levels.. It's bright enough to night hike with if needed. I've used it as my only light on trips I don't expect to do any night hiking and as a backup when I expect to do a lot of night hiking.

    Bumping an old post but +1 on Fenix for a small AAA light. I ended up going with the one that uses 1 AA. I can't remember if that one is the E01 or LD01. It is right at 100 lm on high and runs a very long time on a single battery. From what I read, life in a AA is better than AAA which make sense. They take up very little space as well.

    sorry for the double post. I tried to edit the model number. The one I carry is the Fenix E11 which has been replaced by the E12

    I vote the Thrunite Ti3 as a small (yet powerful) AAA torch; Fenix E12 for AA.

    +1 on the Thrunite Ti3. The Maglite Solitaire is a close second.

    I've got the Olight 3E EOS around my neck as I type this. I forget I'm wearing most of the time. Nice little light with one AAA. $8 on amazon if I recall.
