    I'm talking about the Fenix E01. It's very durable and has a very good runtime @ a good light output (10 lumens) driven by an AAA battery. The output is flat for 280 mins i.e. great regulation.

    I ordered mine from dealextreme.com for 15.70$ and haven't received it yet, but according to the many reviews I've read it's very good. Looks like this will be my new keychain light.

    Manufacturers specs:

    • Utilizes a Nichia white GS LED with a life of 100,000 hours
    • Constant brightness: 10 Lumens
    • Uses one 1.5V AAA ( Alkaline, Ni-MH, Lithium ) battery, inexpensive and widely available
    • 7.1cm (Length) x 1.4cm (Diameter)
    • 21-hour working time ( 11-hour sun mode plus 10-hour moon mode)
    • Made of aircraft grade aluminum
    • Durable Type III hard anodized finish
    • 14-gram weight (excluding batteries)
    • Waterproof to IPX-8 Standard
    • Reliable twist switch
    • Capable of standing up securely on a flat surface to serve as a candle

    Sounds like a bargain to me...[yack]
