    I've been carrying a Nitecore EZAA on my keyring. Now that there are smaller lights in the EZ series, I may try one of those....

    A Photon II. I seem to use it at least once a week. Used it today to look for a dropped ball bearing. Very bright for its size and I have not yet needed to replace the battery in over two years. Amazing. Cheap too.

    I have my trusty Arc AAA-P on my primary keychain and an EO1 on my other key chain. I recently found myself in a huge warehouse when the power went out and I was totally amazed how well my Arc worked in total darkness. Saved the day for sure.

    I've got a Maglite Solitaire fitted with an Energizer Lithium with my keys. Nothing special, but it only cost me $5 and it's reliable. My Surefires are too big to tote around in my pocket everyday.

    Right now, a little ASP led. They tend to break off before the battery goes bad... The wife has a Solitaire and a plastic cow that not only makes mooing noises but has an LED.

    In addition, I normally carry a Defender.

    Yep - Arc AAA. You never know when you'll need some sort of artificial light at the weirdest times.

    Yes. A rather beat up Battery Junction coin cell light. My 4th level back up.

    I have a Photon on my key ring... I think it gives a good bang for the buck and the size is hard to beat.

    I carry an Inova microlight. It's kinda my "first responder" - it does what I need 90% of the time, and is easier to get to than my bigger lights.

    I carry a Fenix E01 on my key ring. I used to carry a Maglite Solitaire, but that has now moved to my wife's key ring . ;)

    I also carry a Maglite Solitaire flashlight, but have been thinking of replacing it with an ArcAAA or a Fenix E01 (since it is cheap). The reason I want to replace the Solitaire is because of the low output, it does not meet my needs (don't think any AAA flashlight will). I do not use the flashlight that often (once a week or so) so the biggest problem is that the light is bulking up my key chain.
