"Brightest" is really a subjective term. What kind of bright? The best answer depends on the kind of flashlight you’re looking for. A Streamlight flashlight to mount on a weapon? For search and rescue? To fight fires? Or just something reliable and handheld? The easiest way to think about it is in terms of lumens and candela:
Lumens: the total output of the bulb (focus not considered).
Candela: the measure of the brightest spot in a focused beam.
If you’re looking to illuminate a large room or field, you’ll want to favor lumens (ProTac HL 3 or Ultrastinger). If you want an extremely bright focused beam, favor candela (Ultrastinger, Stinger HPL, or DS HPL).
The Stinger HPL is one of the brightest Streamlight flashlights in terms of candela.
It's the Ultrastinger® LED. But your next best options for smaller sizes are:
The Stinger HPL and Stinger DS HPL both boast a max candela of 48,000.
The ProTac HL USB is one of the brightest Streamlight flashlights in terms of lumens.
Again, after the Ultrastinger LED the next brightest Streamlight flashlight is:
The ProTac HL USB is capable of 850 lumens at the highest power setting. At only 10,000 candelas it's the least intense beam making the list.

These Streamlight flashlights aren't going to fit comfortably on your belt, but they pack a big punch. Here are some of Streamlight's brightest specialty flashlights:
