    Hmm,

    Can I ask if you need the size over the amount of aHrs?

    A rechargeable CR123 based light isn’t going to have much runtime.

    You looking for a rechargeable battery or need it to charge inside the light itself?

    I prefer a light without charger, 2-3 hrs runtime would be enough, about 100 lumens, a lesser mode would be great

    I’m tempted to recommend an RCR123 cell and a Malkoff MDC in CR123 size.

    The RCR123s can be had with good car or A/C double chargers if needed just have less power available.

    His MDCs have threee modes with a LowLow on start.
    Not (exactly) cheap but great stuff.

    I have the AA MDC in Neutral and use it almost every day/night with a Surefire red filter on it when I get home as to not wake the wife.

    There are several flashlights are 16340 compatible and you can make them rechargeable by buying a 16340 with built in micro-usb for about $10. The Olight S1 mini baton comes with one for about $50. The Fenix E18r uses a magnetic charger for $64.

    You should be able to get lights that meet this criteria easily. I was a little skeptical of what you would consider to be an "enough power flashlight", but 100 lumens is a very reasonable expectation for such a light.

    The recommendations already listed in this thread are all good ones.

    However, if none of these lights strike your fancy, I would second SOS24's suggestion:
