Flashlights: whats your favorite?

I have had mag lights in the past, though they have been good lights I hate always having to buy batteries and think I would like something that has rechargeable's. I found this on Amazon:
http://www.amazon.com/Streamlight-75763-Stinger-Flashlight-Chargers/dp/B002VV7SFG/ref=sr_1_1?s=hi&ie=UTF8&qid=1329690301&sr=1-1 http://www.amazon.com/Streamlight-75763-Stinger-Flashlight-Chargers/dp/B002VV7SFG/ref=sr_1_1?s=hi&ie=UTF8&qid=1329690301&sr=1-1

Looking for your thoughts. I like the size of a 4 D mag light but would take something with better light output in the smaller package with good battery life.

I use a Stinger LED Streamlight everyday at work. It is awesome and well worth the money in my opinion.

The little free ones that they give away at Harbor Freight with a coupon . I have one or two in the truck, one in the car, and two in my toolbox and other places that I have probably forgotten about. They are LED and fairly bright, and the price and shear number of them I have make them hard to beat. Always have one stashed somewhere within reach.

I have an L.E.D Mag light and its a piece of crap. It always cuts out and gets dim. They are supposed to have a lifetime warranty right? I thought about taking it back but its all scratched up and I doubt they would do anything for me, even though its been doing it since day one

I got 2 of the mag chargers. Those are very nice and bright, but the bulbs burn out. You can pick up a brand new one for right around $90. I also have a streamlight stinger ds led hp. That is a very bright flashlight. I got the piggyback charger with 2 batteries, but it was just over $200 when I bought it a couple of years ago.
