I lost my Microstream on a job site and am debating if I should replace it with the same, or if there is something better out there. I love the size, shape, feel, function of the Microstream C4 but the 45 lumen often wasn't enough. The new USB version is nice but I don't want to be tied to recharging and like the ability to simply throw in a new AA or AAA as needed. 1) Short Essay Question: What do you intend to use this light for? EDC in 5th pocket, seeing both in tight spots (think engine compartment), up into 20-30' high racking in well lit warehouse, general every day use in the dark. 2) What Region/Country/State will the light be purchased in? I will likely be mail-ordering or buying online, so this doesn't matter. 3) Price Range: <$50 ideally 4) Format: PART A I want a flashlight. PART B Length: 2-4 inches. (Pocket carry) PART C Width: I prefer a short narrow light (eg 3-4" long by 1/2" wide) PART D Weight: With the size requirement this doesn't matter 5) What kind of "bulb". Don't care, just want the best fit for my needs. 6) What batteries do you want to use? I want common Alkaline batteries ideally. (AA, AAA) 7) How much light do you want? Minimum 40/50 lumen on a low mode, 150+ on high 8) Throw vs Flood: Throw 9) Runtime: I don't run it for long periods of time, but don't want to change batteries every 5 minutes either. 10) Durability: Is not thrown around intentionally but it will be dropped and bumped. 11) Switch Type: Momentary and clickie 12) Switch Location: Tail 13) Operational Modes: 2 modes is ideal based on brightness, strobe is a waste. 14) Is it important whether the body is metal or plastic/composite? Doesn't matter, metal is ideal but as long as it's durable. 15) Special Needs: Comfortable deep carry pocket clip that doesn't just your finger (nail) to use.
