Mine is a Streamlight Protac 1L-AA
I wanted to share what I found and carry every day so others may benefit. I am not a flashlight hound but I do like a good practical light. First, I've always been a D cell Maglight fan so this is a big change for me. I bought this one December 2018. Carry it every day in my pocket. Always works, three modes, one AA battery, and I use it almost every day for something. Accidentally ran it thru the clothes washer about a month after I bought it. No moisture inside and it still works great. It is the first "mode" light I have carried on a daily basis. I live on 2 1/2 acres and it will light up the opposite corner of the property at night. I use Panasonic Rechargeable AA batteries. I highly recommend both!

I've got a number of flashlights, too many to list. The big dog is a Solaray ProZX-1XL. 1600 lumens of focusable LED power. You could signal the ISS with this baby!

I carry a Streamlight ProTac-1L. Very compact and is 275 lumens. Use a Nightfighter X for night stand. Purchased a few of these for my kids. Work very well and attach to key chain. https://www.surefire.com/illuminatio.../sidekick.html
I think any good LED that throws out a lot of light should be good. The smaller the flashlight, the less light that is going forward, so there seems to be a fine line between compactness and power.

When Leonidas was preparing to make his stand, a Persian envoy arrived. The envoy explained to Leonidas the futility of trying to resist the advance of the huge Persian army and demanded that the Spartans lay down their arms. Leonidas told Xerxes "MOLON LABE", or "Come And Get Them."

I love recommending the Thrunite 1A V3. It uses 1 AA or 14500. I keep it set at 0.1 lumen by default (200 lumens max). Excellent for not ruining your night vision, reading a book, or getting from bedroom to bathroom without tripping. At that setting you can run the light for 17 days straight. I've carried the same one for 4 years.

I've got several, but my favorite is a Surefire 320 lumin that runs on two C123 batteries. Given a choice, I'd pick any that takes the 123 batteries over the AAA powered lights.
I have a pair of cheap Nebo Edge 50's. They throw some decent light with fresh batteries.

The Fenix E12 in the OP is a great little light. I've had a couple, but these days I carry an Olight S1R baton. I originally got the S2R but ended up losing it. I eventually replaced it with the smaller S1R and this little light is fantastic. They are a bit pricey, but completely worth it for someone who uses their EDC light. I worked nights for many years and having a flashlight handy was invaluable. It doesn't get used as much now that I'm a "Daywalker" but I still need a light occasionally.
