    LOL. Don needs a helper. He has been working too hard.

    Those L91 Lithiums will give you a good run for your money. I suspect at least 3 hours on high.
    The 119 will benefit from this setup.

    Go for it Ryan. Very versatile battery options. I will surely get one in HCRI eventually.

    You are exactly right! My last two Spies have had the SWGG option. The standard looks so cool, it will be a breath of fresh air. I thought to myself, I can have a CRI Haiku AA instead of the SWGG option, heck yeah!

    It appears that most people are going the HCRI route for this iteration of Haiku.

    Hey Austin, I have both light engines. If no one else gets to it quicker, I will try to take some pics of the two beam patterns this weekend for you and post them somewhere.

    Oh no. Not another HCRI. Makes my XML such an orphan.

    The AA XM-L light engine puts out more lumens than the AA High CRI light engine does but due to its larger die when it comes to comparison of lux (throw) between a High CRI AA and XM-L AA Haiku, the Haiku AA High CRI is clearly the winner.

    I wanted the best of both, so I put my XPG2 LED board on my McG AA LE. Most excellent.

    Perfect transaction as always. I just got my Haiku AA High CRI and its fantastic. I actually like the longer length of the AA Haiku compared to the CR123 Haiku, also its slimmer

    I'm not made of money but can honestly see value in these lights, worth every cent. Thanks once again Don

    I received my Haiku AA High Cri today. It actually arrived the same day I left for vacation so was delivered today. The ability to use AA batteries is great. Great output and a beautiful tint. This will become a favorite! Thanks Don!
