Top Ten Recommended Flashlights for Your Next Purchase

Best and Most Recommended Flashlights

We here at Kick-EEZ are passionate about flashlights. We love them and we spend a lot of time with people who do too. We know that many of you who work on your own gun stocks also have an appreciation for a good flashlight too. So we decided to compile a list of our Top Ten Recommended Flashlights. These are flashlights that we either use, or our friends use and find them to be top notch. We hope this list helps inform you during your next flashlight purchase. 

Workos FC11 

Features: 

  • Max Brightness - 1300 lumens 
  • Battery Type - 18650 
  • High CRI 
  • Onboard Recharging 
  • Midnight Mode 

As far as cost-to-effectiveness, there are few lights we can recommend as much as we do the Workos FC11. This light offers so much for the pricing including onboard recharging, multiple CRI options, and a magnetic tail cap. If you’re looking for an all-purpose, everyday flashlight, we can’t recommend this one enough.

Sofirn SC21

Features: 

  • Max Brightness - 1000 lumens 
  • Battery Type - 16340 
  • High CRI 
  • Onboard Recharging 
  • Midnight Mode 

Nothing says EDC like a 3 inch, 65 gram light that is capable of 1000 lumens and has onboard recharging. This flashlight might be little, but it packs plenty of punch. This flashlight is perfect for those who are looking for something to slip into their pocket or a camping bag.

Sofirn SP26

Features: 

  • Max Brightness - 5600 lumens 
  • Battery Type - 3 x 18650 
  • High CRI 
  • Onboard Recharging 
  • Anduril UI 
  • Midnight Mode 

We just talked about a small, easy to carry flashlight. So now we will talk about its opposite. The Sofirn SP26 is a big light that focuses on one main thing, brightness. The minimum brightness of this light is a modest 0.5 lumens, but the maximum brightness is 5600 lumens. This light turns the dead of night into midday light. While there are some lights that go brighter, this light is what we recommend because it still has many conveniences like onboard charging, the very famous anduril UI, and it utilizes the common 18650 battery type. 

Skilhunt E2A

Features: 

  • Max Brightness - 600 lumens 
  • Battery Type - AA 
  • Midnight Mode 

After mentioning the 18650 battery type, I do want to mention some lights for those who like to keep things simple with AA batteries. While this light doesn’t have onboard recharging, if you find yourself in the woods at night with a dead flashlight, you can pop a battery out of a radio or trail camera and stick it into this flashlight for a bit unlike others.

Skilhunt E3A 

Features: 

  • Max Brightness - 100 lumens 
  • Battery Type - AAA 

Alright, what if AAA is your choice of battery over any of the others mentioned so far? We got you covered too. Much like the Sofirn SC21, this light is great for those who want something really small to throw in your pocket or an overnight camping bag. While this light doesn’t have all the conveniences of onboard charging or a high CRI emitter option, it does support one of the most common battery types in the world. 

Rovyvon Aurora A3X

Features: 

  • Max Brightness - 450 lumens 
  • High CRI 
  • Onboard Recharging 

There are plenty of people who don’t want to carry a dedicated flashlight with them everywhere they go, but they find themselves tired of pulling their phones out every time they are in the dark. You need a light to go on your keychain. While the Skilhunt E2A and the Sofirn SC21 are both great, portable lights, the Royvon Aurora A3X is the best for this exact use. Not only is this light incredibly portable, it has onboard charging, and a high CRI emitter option.

ZebraLight H600C

Features: 

  • Max Brightness - 1568 lumens 
  • Battery Type - 18650 
  • High CRI 
  • Zebralight UI 
  • Midnight Mode 

If you enjoy flashlights, you probably won’t be surprised to see this light on the list. For those who prioritize efficiency in a flashlight, this will be the light for you. The only downside about this light is that there isn’t any onboard recharging. That’s it. It comes in high CRI emitter options, the popular Zebralight UI, and a very impressive brightness range from 0.08 lumens to 1568 lumens! We recommend the angle version because it also gives you the capacity for use as a head lamp. This light in our minds is, without a doubt, the Cadillac of flashlights.

Olight Baton S2R II

Features: 

  • Max Brightness - 1150 
  • Battery Type - 18650 
  • Magnetic Onboard Recharging 
  • Midnight Mode 

Love them or hate them, Olight is popular for a reason. We don’t disagree that there are a lot of irritating design decisions that this company makes, but no one can deny the fact that each of their products have a respectable level of quality. The reason we want to recommend this particular light is because this light uses the common 18650 battery. The magnetic onboard recharging, pocket clip, and overall product quality make this flashlight difficult not to recommend. 

Streamlight 69260

Features: 

  • Max Brightness - 1000 
  • Mounts on Firearm 

Alright, you need a light to go on an everyday firearm, what do we recommend? My boss strongly recommends the next two lights that will close out this list. The first is the Streamlight 69260. It has a brightness of 1000 lumens, it is ambidextrous, and fits on a large variety of weapons. If the amazon reviews of this light is no indication, this light has served thousands of those who exercise their second amendment rights. 

SureFire XSC 

Features: 

  • Max Brightness - 350 
  • Mounts on Firearm 
  • Compact 

This particular light is also a handgun light that is compact for those who need something on their conceal and carry. The brightness of this light is a modest 350 lumens, but it makes up for that with its ease of carry.  

If you are looking for an everyday carry flashlight, or even something to go on your everyday carry firearm, these top ten best/ most recommended flashlights are a great place to start looking!
