    What type of flashlight do you guys use? In my conceal carry class, they highly recommend having a flashlight next to your bed for home defense. IMO, a really bright flashlight with a strobe/pulse feature would be ideal in the case that a bad guy comes in your home at night and the strobe would really screw up his natural night site.

    Offbrand CREE LED from eBay. It's bright and has a strobe effect. I think it cost $20. Works every time. My only complaint is it may be a tad too short.

    I like SolarForce lights. I have the standard L2. Well made. Reliable. 250 lumens and can be had for around $20.

    Rechargeable LED Mag-Light stays on the charger on the wall beside the bed and a Tac light strobe light in my basket on the night stand. Also a remote control for the light in the hallway leading up to my bedroom.

    Any brighter than this and I would blind myself from the reflection indoors….and outside it shines as bright as I could ever want.

    So your strobe is about the equivalent of my low power setting.
