    I believe 2 14500s will smoke the circuit. What do the specs say for max voltage?

    2 Eneloops or 2 Energizer L91 batteries would work better than 2 alkaline batteries.

    2x14500 would be 6 volts and would blow the electronics on the head. Head is only rated for 0.9 to 4.2 volts.

    most Quark X users report a greenish tint (or very greenish tint like mine) on all modes. buy a NeutralWhite version if you can!!!
    I've got a NW Quark X 123^2 and it's more warm than neutral. No green tint to speak of, though!

    You'll need the high voltage head to run 2 Li-ions, that would be the Quark X 123^2. 14500s are better than the 16340s, so legoing a AA^2 body would work too.

    Okay so if I just use regular old copper-tops I should be good I guess, too bad about the no rechargables though...

    Does it have a momentary on for tactical use?

    As everybody else has already mentioned, you can't do that. 2xAA Eneloops work quite well. But really, the best way to run it IMHO is with the 1xAA body and a 14500. A little brighter than the 2xEneloop config, and even if you find yourself with a depleted 14500, it runs pretty well on a single AA alkaline or Eneloop. Not near as much output as the high-power configs, but all modes work, and are usefully bright.

    One of my favorite 1xAA lights, since I more often want flood in that size light, which is a good thing because these small XM-L lights don't throw worth a darn. I have an original Quark AAČ Tactical R2 that out-throws it handily, and a $22 Balder SE-1 in R5 that out-throws 'em both.

    2 NiMh Rechargeables are fine.... 2 Li-ions are not in that light.

    Yes the tactical has a momemtary switch.

    I have both the regular an tactical. I prefer the regular since I'm always trying to use the lowest lumen level for a given task. The tactical locks into two modes, until you take the time to reprogram it.

    I see these Oneloops in costco all the time, are they really worth it?

    They are the preferred NiMh battery on CPF... you can't go wrong with that.

    IIRC using the high voltage head with Li-ion is better than low voltage head with same Li-ion.
