I needed a reasonably priced small torch for a new project and picked up a Lighthouse elite CREE LED Focus Torch 3 AAA for a tenner in a local hardware.

For the money I'd recommend it. I won't repeat all the specs as you can look them up if you are interested only down side is that its a bit too heavy for its small size and why do so many torches take 3 batteries when the packs of batteries come in 4's and 8's

Edit> So was out with this tonight for nearly and hour and its a powerful little torch. I also took along a lenser L7 (one of their cheaper range of 3 cell AAA torches) and a 2 AA celled LED maglite both these are twice the price of the Lighthouse torch and neither were as powerful or focusable, not that power was what I was looking for. How the Lighthouse one will fair in the long run I don't know, the cheap bit of it seems to be the lens which is pollycarbonate not glass and I don't know if that will degrade or get be easily scratched.

Picked up a butane refill thats pocket sized http://www.ebay.ie/itm/301281555947?...84.m1497.l2649 its the same height as a 2oz tin and about double the thickness of a disposable lighter after using it twice im guessing it will refill a standard lighter 8 to 10 times ideal for camping /hiking EDC and bug out bags. Can also be got in bulk of 5 if needed http://www.ebay.ie/itm/291220214218?...84.m1423.l2649

Picked up one of these http://www.ebay.ie/itm/161392921687?...84.m1423.l2649 flashlights and have to say for the price and size it is assume. With a standard AA its brighter than my led lenser P7 with a rechargable 14500 battery it turns night into day
