They have a variety of ultralight rechargeable torches, as well as this excellent charger/powerbank which is all you need to charge them (and anything else!) I already wrote about their remarkable Tube torch here and here. Now they have much brighter models available such as the:

Thumb (85 lumens + 25 grams with rotatable head – so easy to slip under a head band)

Tip (360 lumens 23.5 grams):

Tini (380 lumens 13.5 grams!): 

and this remarkable head torch the:
