Hi guys,

I have a SC52w Zebralight that pushes out 500lm with a lithium battery but the floody beam doesn't give it much throw.

I've been eyeing the Eiger AAA with the small optic with nichia 219. I wanted the X head but it doesn't have the 219 (correct me if I am wrong).

Question is, does the Eiger AAA with the small optic or x has longer throw than the sc52w? If not, I'm open to any recommendations. Doesn't have to have more lumens, just more throw. Thanks!!

Not sure how small you want to stay, but for 1AAs, in order of throw:

Nitecore EA1/MT1A
Quark Turbo (Lego'd QBA)
Thruntite Neutron V2

The NCs don't fully support 14500s (all modes shift), the Quark throws on focus, and Neutron throws on power.
