FOURSEVENS Preon II P2 Cree XP-G LED Cool White Gen 2


This FourSevens LED is the ultimate everyday carry option. It’s the size of a normal pen, so you can carry it in your pocket or toss it in your bag, and you’ll hardly even notice it’s there because it’s so light. It also runs on two AAA batteries, so extra batteries are inexpensive to replace and easy to track down. Despite its small size, it has a maximum output of 192 lumens, and it can also run on the low-beacon setting for 40 hours. This light is perfect for when you’re out and about and need a light for a quick task or for an emergency situation.

Fenix PD35 LED Cree XM-L2


This LED is fairly similar to the Fenix listed above, but it has a few small differences. For example, it is slightly longer (5.60” in length) and it has a maximum output of 850 lumens. This is another great, dependable light to keep in your car or in your camping pack just in case you need it.

Olight S10-L2 Baton Flashlight Cree XM


The Olight S10 is another excellent option if you’re looking for a flashlight you can carry daily without being weighed down. This LED is just 2.79 inches long and weighs 1.5 oz. Its inconspicuous size in addition to its pocket clip really make it ideal for pocket carry, but you can always toss it in your bag or even put it on anything that’s metal; the tail end of the LED is magnetic. With four output settings and a maximum output of 400 lumens, you really can’t go wrong with this light.

Streamlight ProTac 2AAA C4


This LED is very similar to the FOURSEVENS Preon II, but it is slightly larger. Another excellent option for everyday carry, the ProTac is compact and functional, and just right for anybody who wants a light on hand.

Fenix LD12 LED High Performance Cree Xp-G (R5)


The Fenix LD12 is a compact light at only 4.15 inches in length, and it’s a great option for general, outdoor, and tactical use. The LED also has 4 output settings from 3 lumens to 125 lumens in addition to two flashing modes (strobe and SOS) that help you have more control over the brightness and runtime of the LED. This light has many of the same perks as your typical Fenix light, and it offers high quality, which is also typical of Fenix products.

If you’re getting a new flashlight, chances are you’ll want some new batteries at some point. Here are our top 3, best-selling batteries here at Blade HQ.
