Best brightest flash light for under150

I have been searching but there is so much info and reviews it will make your head spin. Pretty much I'm looking for about a 1200 lumen rechargable light for under $150.00. I found one called Barska but the reviews on amizon were horrible. I'm open to suggestions.

Bike lights are a good option. They even have the rings that are meant to mount on handle bars, but you can put them on fingers if you need to use your hands

I would look into olight or my personal favorite fenix, look at the TK series in fenix. These new led lights are incredibly small, well built, and bright. I will never go back to maglight, that is unless I want to bludgeon someone

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.

You can also check DealExtreme - Cool Gadgets at the Right Price - DX Free Shipping Worldwide 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.

Under $150 my friend. With a Surfire, you pay for the brand, not the light. I would still like to own one though...

Thanks guys. I have been checking out the ones you suggested. I like the nightcore. I went to a gun show this weekend and picked up a Ruger 1911 I have been wanting. I will have to build up my funds now. I figure they won't outlaw flashlights any time soon lol.
