My most often used light is an AA minimag with the LED module from 2D swapped in, and diffuser film installed. No hassle with modes, nice floody light for around house use, and no worry about batteries since it takes rechargeable AA.

Since I have several it just depends on what I have available at the time.

I'm a big fan of 4sevens lights... quark mini AA on my key chain, quark regular AA or AA^2 for whatever-use, on my bike etc. And a zebralight H50b for headlamp.

1 or 2 cell AA, LED lights made by Fenix or 4Sevens. Both brands can be found at www.4sevens.com

I carry a Fenix LD01 on my keyring; it is the closest at hand, and probably gets used the most. I use a Princeton Tec EOS headlight (two, in fact)when biking or hiking. I also carry a Gerber Ultra Infinity - very compact, with long run time.

I also EDC spare batteries for the Fenix and Gerber; with that supplement, either can last an all night hike, if it came to that.

Fenix LD01 and TK40, although I use the TK40 every day at home and work. Best light I own, my buddy has the TK45 but I can out shine him on the throw only, other than that his is brutally brighter than mine but he can't drop to using 4 AA batteries like I can. I get several days of work running it in turbo, it vary rarely leaves turbo mode at 630 lumen.

The Doug Ritter headlamp for filling out paperwork in the dark (like last night); and a Fenix 1xAA for most other stuff, can't recall the model number. Love these lights.

At home I grab one of my Surefires. Doug's e-Pico is with me always -- on my car key chain and my dog walking lanyard, along with a whistle.
