Easily our favorite tiny flashlight. It's so small it not only fits in your pocket but even fits comfortably in that little pocket inside your pocket (known as a watch pocket or coin pocket).

This is a fantastic all around flashlight for hikers and every day carry.

It's super bright and ultra-portable. The battery is where it really shines, as it's both rechargeable and comes with a magnetic charger that you can just clip on. You don't need to take the battery out and plug a charger into a tiny USB port to charge it which is common with other similar small rechargeable flashlights. Just drop it on the charger and you're ready to go. It also comes with a handy clip with allows you to attach the flashlight to your hat and turn it into a hands-free headlamp, which is perfect for night hiking or doing repairs around the house.

Olight S1 MINI Cree
Ultra-light, ultra-small rechargeable flashlight that fits in your pocket. It comes with a clip which means you can easily use it as a hands-free head-lamp by clipping it to your hat. The only downside is that the USB charging port is on the battery, so you have to open the flashlight in order to charge it. Not a huge deal-breaker, but it's something you should be aware of.
