    Underrated lights.

    I'd say the Pak-Lite, it's very underrated and almost never suggested as an emergency preparedness light.

    Most Rugged Single AA Flashlight

    My quark AA has held up great. I've used it everyday for almost 2 years. I would think a mini AA's durability would be even greater, do to being lighter and lack of a mechanical switch.

    Help with a helmet light for helicopter operations.

    Your NVG's should have a light you can turn on inside the optic. Have you tried fiddling with them to try and find it? Mine works pretty good out to about 25 meters or so on the darkest nights. Any brighter than that you will wash everyone else out using NVG's.

    Whats the most durable single cell AA?

    Just curious what the opinions of the most durable single cell AA light are. The Malkoff MDC and quark series are great. Thrunite gives the Archer 1AA a 10 meter drop rating. Who has the toughest?
