Headlamp and a flashlight in one.
For a compact go-anywhere light that can be worn on your head or held in your hand, check out the Fenix HL10 Headlamp. A single AAA battery will power the light for 27 hours in low mode and can supply up to 70 lumens with a 50-foot beam in high mode. As mentioned, the light can be quickly removed from the headlamp casing to double as a hand-held flashlight, stood on end as a tabletop light, or clipped to your keychain for instant illumination.
- Cree XP-E LED bulb will provide 70 lumens in high mode and throw a beam nearly 50 into the darkness and at 90 degrees for excellent peripheral vision
- Single AAA battery (included) will provide 27 hours of run time in low mode and 50 minutes in high mode
- 100-degree tilt mechanism adjusts the beam where it's needed most
- Headlamp quickly converts to a hand held flashlight; can also be stood on its end for ambient light or clipped to keychain
- Push-button switch at end of housing turns the lamp on and allows you to choose between three brightness levels
- IPX-8 waterproof rating means a rain shower won't leave you stranded in the dark
- Compact size and low weight of just one and a half ounces make the headlamp easy to pack and carry
- Includes a spare o-ring

Ultralight, not ultra bright.
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I use this headlamp when ultralight climbing and backpacking, and it's great. No matter what I do to it, dunking, dropping, throwing, banging, etc. it still works. However, it is not the brightest headlamp out there. It is best for close, spread out work like scrambling, bouldering, and protection setting/clearing, not for seeing far ahead of you. Overall I love it for certain activities, just don't expect to light up your site from three miles away.
