The Kootek XPE-Q5 is our recommendation for our best cheap flashlight. It has 3 modes: 250 lumen, 50 lumen and Strobe. The inexpensive Kootek comes in a 5 pack. It uses either a an AA or rechargeable 14500. Lumens: 250 with AA and 300 with a 14500. No battery is included. It is IPX6 water resistant. Even with a standard AA battery, it is still much brighter than our previous “best cheap flashlight” the Q5 recommendation. The 5 pack is perfect for flashlights you won't worry about losing.
