    I have a keychain flashlight that is really white. It may be
    fluorescent, but it runs from a single coin cell, which I can see
    through the case. I have had it for over a year. It came from an
    Eastern Mountain Sports store and was almost $20 at the time, but much
    cheaper now, I think.
    
    My Kelvin & Hughes has what looks like an ordinary small flashlight
    bulb, so I haven't worried about this. An LED mounted in a bulb base
    would be a good thing.
