    I personally like the Streamlight MicroStream Streamlight 66318 MicroStream C4 LED Pen Flashlight - Basic Handheld Flashlights - Amazon.com

    I just clipped it to a key ring that I attached to my badge.

    The light is extremely bright so do not use it to check pupils without attenuating the light, I used to partially cover the flashlight with my fingers. I like a bright flashlight so I can use it for more than just checking pupils like checking out vasculature, looking for sharps etc.

    That's not too bright for checking pupils?

    Use clinical judgement to attenuate the light as needed. I would personally not recommend directly shining any light of any lumen or candela strength without assessing the situation and attenuating the light as needed.

    The Nitecore Tube mentioned above has a low, a high and a variable setting from 1 to 45 lumens depending on how long you press the button.
