I agree. I got a Husky 1000 lumen unbreakable last year. For $12.97, I bought a defiant to use as an emergency.

Not worth getting these cheap LED flashlights (usually named ____fire).

It doesn't come with a battery. For the uninitiated, finding a good (read: safe) 18650 lithium battery is like navigating a land mine. There are a lot of low quality knock off 18650s, and unsafe lithium ions batteries can ignite. A good protected 18650 is about $7-10 from specific vendors. Cheap 18650 chargers have the same problem. A safe charger will run you an additional $5.

Alkaline batteries (eg 3x AAA in a holder) are no good because they can't drive the LED at max brightness (1,000+ lumens).

The cheapest 18650 LED flashlight with a battery and charger of acceptable quality (read: safe) are the:

Wowtac A1 1,150 Lumen $20 https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07DC24BSH/
Sofirn SP31 v2 1,200 Lumen $35 https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07FKJDH93/
Sofirn SP32 v2 1,000 Lumen $27 https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07F8QTB2N/

For a step up, the Thrunite Neutron 2C at $50 is an entry flash-aholic light with better build quality, better UI, and a larger battery.

This looks like the ones from Lowes earlier this year. The lowes one has the option of using C batteries or AA batteries in either a combination of 3 or 6 AA batteries to operate.

Can these be stored in vehicles - can the batteries stand the potential heat in the car on a hot day?

Not in direct sunlight. It should survive in any compartment in the vehicle. If you are concern, use rechargeable battery... those are made to stand heat a bit more since the charging process produce heat and extra pressure. Peace

Better UI? Good grief, why does a flashlight even need a UI? I just want one that turns on when I push the button and then turns off when I push it again.

And even better if it uses batteries that I can pick up at any corner store...

Great info. I'll expand on the dangers when you combine cheap lithium batteries with metal bodied flashlights.

A cheap lithium battery in a plastic flashlight can be a fire hazard if stuff goes wrong.

A cheap lithium battery in a metal flashlight can become the equivalent of a small pipe bomb is the battery has a spectacular failure.

At this point, I won't leave a lithium ion battery charging if I'm not there to watch it if it's inside the house. Just paranoid.

Some flashlights have some sort of software and logic around brightness. I have one that has a few levels of brightness and it progresses from bright to less bright then finally to flashing. Some flashlights will turn on at the last setting (so if I turned it off at 20% brightness, it turns back on 20% brightness) and others will go back to full brightness by default (which if you are in a dark place, it can screw your night vision for quite some time).
