My coworker just bought a diving flashlight off of Ebay for $50, and I believe it was a 1600 lumen 9v Rechargeable, and waterproof to 30 meters. I am waiting for him to test it out for a few days before I buy one. According to him, it is a chinese knock-off light, but if it works, it works! I will let you know how well it worked for him on Monday.
I personally always keep a Coast HP7 on me at all times. 4AAA 251 Lumen light, but with a focused beam, I can see clear to my back yard (120 yards). That's all I need, and it cost me $40 at Lowes.

out. Be warned though, they take forever to ship it. I ordered 3 items from them, no larger than a coffee mug, but I didn't receive them until about a month later.
