I have 3 G2's but understand the battery life is way short. They're designed more for tactical use, short on/off cycles. They can get warm too. I get the sense you just looking for general use / throw it in the truck type light. "C" size maglight might fit the bill. in my truck I just tossed in a hand powered light like the type you crank or grip to charge the capacitor. I find that I don't use a flashlight enough in a vehicle to put one in there with batteries as when I need it, it's always dead. Here's a crude site that might be helpful. (it only works w/ IE)
I found these: http://www.cabelas.c...=0041169517765aPrice is right- not sure about these thoughhttp://www.cabelas.c...e...&id=0021019The small one is too cheap to go in with another family member but the larger one is too much!

Those look pretty good. I have some Cyclops tacticool ones i picked up at Costco a couple years ago for like $20 (they use c123 batteries and don't last long and get HOT). All the ones that us the C123 batteries are for tactical use and not long duration or emergency use. I too prefer maglites (I keep a 4D in my Jeep and a 3C by my bed). You can get the maglites with LED lights in them now and they are better, but still use regular batteries. Maybe you could get him like a bunch of the LED Maglites in different sizes. Sometimes people just don't know any better and you have to show them. Plus it's a Christmas present, YOU get to choose what he gets.
http://www.costco.co...?...topnav=&s=1What about these? Seems like a nice set. It is a bit more than I wanted to spend on the old fart but I can deal with it. (shipping is included in the price) He is all show and no go. I have small maglites in my trucks. They are all you need. (I have a larger one too) But he wants something cool. ($$$- he isn't paying for it!)
