I was lucky enough to be able to test a beta model of a new flashlight coming out soon from a flashlight company named Fenix.
It is called the TK45 and it is a LED flashlight with a maximum output of an impressive 760 lumens from 8 standard AA size batteries!

Some quick specs from the manufacturer:

Low brightness, 8 lumens (232 hrs)
Mid brightness, 95 lumens (22 hrs)
High brightness, 312 lumens (6.5hrs)
Turbo brightness, 760 lumens (2hrs)

It will use 3 Cree XPG LED(R5) with a lifespan of 50,000 hrs.
Digitally regulated output for constant brightness.
Intelligent memory function.
Premium Type III hard anodized aluminum finish.
Waterproof to IPX-8 Standard
Toughened ultra-clear glass lens with anti-reflective coating.
Has Strobe, SOS, Warning flash modes

Using rechargeable AA size batteries, I believe this flashlight could be useful as a survival tool. I am very impressed with this flashlight. The design is futuristic and the quality is excellent. I especially like the low brightness mode which gives a very long 232 hrs of runtime. With 10 hrs a night, that's 23 days!

I have attached some pics. The right switch on the light turns it on and off. The left switch cycles through the brightness levels. The beamshot pic shows a car headlight on the right and the TK45 on Turbo brightness on the left. It is very bright.
