    I would not gift a Thorfire to a non-flashaholic. I'd go with something a little more reliable.

    A couple options that come to mind:
    Klarus RS18 or AR10
    Fenix UC30 or RC11 (the RC11 is a little outside your price range)

    I'm not sure 18650 is a good choice for non flashlight people. I love it but it's still annoying to have so many battery types.

    I have to agree here. 18650s are not consumer oriented cells. If anything i would recommend you get a light that they will not have to take the cell out of, that olight looks like a great option!

    I love my fenix UC35. It has a micro USB port for built in charging. My favorite feature is that you change modes with the side switch and cycle power with the tail cap. I generally use the same mode over and over, so it functions like a single mode flashlight, but the additional modes are available in the event you need more or less light.
