I understand your desire to have a handy flashlight.
Let me offer a few alternative and much cheaper solutions.
Segway.....into flashlights.

I've been into flashlights all my life.....all kinds....but for astronomy and
imaging you can't beat a headlamp. A headlamp allows you to use both hands
and your mouth for their intended purposes.
I usually wear one all night or whenever I'm out in the dark with the gear
and it's alway handy.

I used to use various 'regular' flashlights in my pocket, on lanyards, in my
mouth, etc.
I got tired of salavating all the time.

There are a lot on the market designed for cavers, camping and mountaineering
but I've found the best for our use is the inexpensive (about $10) GE
Energizer headlamp which has two white and one red led.
It is tiltable so one can put the light where you need it. It runs for a long
time on 3-AAA's and is light weight.
You can find them at Walmart, Target, etc.
