    Where are all the 1AA flashlights these days?

    Streamlight makes a great one - 350 lumens! Plenty bright to light up a room or a back yard. It is the Protac 1L - its a 1AA light:

    Honestly that's a reason I keep putting my Stinger back on my belt. Today's thought was doing that and putting the protac or Surefire G2 in my pocket. The Stinger HL LED has just been the best light since the SL20x. I was on foot patrol last night after i posted this and I stopped an intox...

    I'm an addict. This is my gripe about the Protac HLX!! I don't like the caged edges prevents me from getting a good press on the switch. I got my Polytac X today and already I hate it just for that! They are much worse than the Protac. Much more raised or pronounced. I'll still...
