    I would try a beer batter with a little less flour and add some bread crumbs

      There is a review here:

      http://www.candlepowerforums.com/vb/...R123A-)-Review

      It says there that the turbo mode (maximum brightness of 860 lumens) drops down by about 40%, after 3 minutes, which is a design feature that is supposedly not mentioned in the manual. That might be something to be aware of. The USB charging cable sounds like a good idea.

        From what I read, it uses the Cree brand LED, I know I did a lot of research on LED light bulbs for my art gallery light fixtures, I was especially impressed by Cree bulbs and reviews on them, as well as a site that did a complete tear-down of a Cree bulb and explained, reviewed and disected every component in it.
        I have 2 Cree bulbs that are on 24/7 and were first turned on in October 2012 and they are still functioning perfectly, I think you will be very happy with any bulbs made by Cree, I can't say anthing about the flashlight itself though, but I might buy one of these.

        The Nitecore MH25 on Amazon is $73, with free shipping, it has 84 customer reviews with 66 of them rated 5 stars, 9 are rated 4 stars, 4 rated 3 stars and 5 are rated 1 star, but with the 1 star reviews you find stupid ones like this, obviously there was a problem with his order from the SELLER, not the flashlight itself, it may have been damaged or maybe it had been returned and resold:

        "The package was torn and the flashlight looked like it was used when it arrived. It worked when I first tried it but on the second night it would not work. I sent it back and received a refund. I bought a Sure Fire light instead and am very happy with that."
        I'd say it seems to be an awesome flashlight.

          Save yourself the headaches. Go buy yourself a "Surefire" brand flashlight and never have any worries again. Once you decide which Surefire light is for you, buy a spare. If one ever breaks, and you need to send it in for free repair, you will have the spare to use. It may be a bit more expensive than what you're accustomed to, but in our industry, when you need your light, you need it to work. I've used all kinds of brands and swear by my Surefire lights. If you want something a bit less expensive, yet durable and dependable, my "Fenix" brand lights have performed pretty well considering the stress I put my equipment through.

          Good luck!

              Maybe that Fenix is even better, at least this one seems to be:

              Fenix PD35 850 Lumen CREE XM-L2 U2 LED Tactical Flashlight with Two EdisonBright CR123A Lithium Batteries.
              Cree XM-L 2 (U2) LED with a lifespan of 50,000 hours
              Uses one 18650 rechargeable Li-ion battery or two 3V CR123A Lithium batteries
              850-lumen maximum output
              The Surefire I just looked at don't seem to have a very high output, this Fenix is $69.97 with free shipping, it also has 142 reviews on Amazon with 124 of them being 5 star ratings, 11 four star, I definitely added this to my "wish list" there to look at again.

                    I've heard good things about both Fenix and Streamlight.

                    My new flashlight is from Streamlight.

                      Looks like you have a winner there, it has 145 reviews on Amazon, one with a video says:

                      In this video, the Fenix PD35 is the first flashlight I use. The 2nd light is an EagleTac SX25A6 (1305 lumens) and the 3rd light is a Streamlight SL20L (350 Lumens).

                      The Fenix PD35 is amazing. At barley 5' in length, it throws a hot 850 lumens. I have several brands of flashlights but out of all of them, I prefer Fenix. Durable, long lasting, worth every penny. The spill on this light is crazy wide. In the video, the shed being lit up is about 30ish yards away. You can see that the spill lights up several yards on both sides of the shed. This makes a great light for lighting up large areas within eye view. I am LEO and when I use it to light up a room or car, I can see everything without drastically having to move my light. I 100% recommend this light
                      I'm tired of cheap JUNK flashlights you know? I'm going to get this one.
                      I went to the ATM late the other night and I couldn't see the buttons even and wished I even had a flashlight at all with me.

                        The Fenix P3D goes practically everywhere with me on and off duty. I've carried it for nearly 5 years and have little issues other than changing the batteries about once a month. Then again I do work a lot at night so burning batteries does seem justified.

                          You shouldn't even settle for a Surefire. When lives are on the line, nothing short of a Fleshlight brand flashlight will do.

                            She knows a friend who knows a person who's gardener, who has a son who knows someone goes to camping all the time so that makes her expert in the subject of a flash light... Just like she claimed that she has experience in Iraq as she knew someone who was there.
