I carry the Streamlight Stinger.

The Gladius is a good light but why would you wanna pay almost $300 dollars for a flashlight that doesn't recharge? You have to buy batteries that are $3 each for it.

Stingers are great flash lights for $100 to $120. However, they only last 1hour and thats the problem with rechargables. Your at a MV accident late at night your directing traffic not a good time to remember you needed to recharge your flash light. Unless you are mp61 you can use your shinny head to reflect the street lights for light to direct traffic. Suggestion use battery operated flash lights.

I carry the Streamlight UltraStinger. It is 70,000 CP and still has that nice metal feel to it. I also carry a backup light on my belt, the Streamlight Scorpion. Thi slittle guy is nice, 35,000CP and has the tail cap switch. Both good lights.

soxrock75,

The Streamlight Ultra Stinger is definitely one of the best & brightest lights on the market. I like the idea of carrying a non rechargeable light on your belt. I think everyone has a story of a rechargeable light dieing on them. As far as the Scorpion I have compared with the Surefire 6p and thought the surefire was a little brighter.

I am told that there are so many military and law enforcement orders for the Gladius that some places can't fill them until September or October. I found some beam shots at (bottom of the page) http://www.ar15.com/forums/topic.html?b=3&f=20&t=219797&page=2

Stinger Streamlight. Same one for 10 years. Same battery. Had to have the plastic lens and the rubber switch cover replaced twice, but they do that for free anyway.

Streamlight makes a 'piggyback' charger (as well as a piggyback fast charger) that you can put the battery into and charge without the light (or charge the battery in the light and the extra battery simultaneously).

I always carry an extra battery (and bulb) for my Stinger HP (40,000 CP) in my bag, and I always have my backup light (a Streamlight Strion, 12,000 CP) on my belt as well...people think it's silly to have a backup light on my belt, but if my primary burns out or I drop it and the bulb breaks (or if someone needs to borrow my flashlight), I'm not going to be the one left in the dark. 8)

Also, for anyone looking to buy a flashlight, this is the cheapest place I have found: http://www.brightguy.com/ (they are in Ohio and I usually get my stuff within 2 or 3 days of ordering from them).
