I am looking for a flashlight meeting the following criteria:

- single mode
- power: at least 14 lumens
- burn time: at least 3 hours
- batteries: AA or AAA, at most 2

Does anybody know of one?

Unfortunately not - its run time is only 2.25 hours.

Minimag 2 AAA LED fits these requirements, and I doubt it's the only one

At least 14 as in closeish to 14 or can be way more. Led lenser p3 claims 25 lumens for 6 hours. That's 1aaa. I think the longer stylus pro claims 100 lumens for 8 hours off 2aaa. If you can go to 2AA or 2aaa then various streamlights and pelicans and coasts would meet those requirements assuming greater can be much greater than 14 lumens. You didn't mention form factor, switch type, clip? Google parametrek flashlighs. Hes a member here and has a site that yoy can plug in what you want and it filters. Its not end all be all but theres probly 10 different lights that'll meet your requirements listed there so you can look at them and then dive further into the specific lights that look interesting.

Coast HX5

168 lumens for just over 3 hours. It also has a flood to spot focusing head.

Thank you everyone for the suggestions! That Parametrek site is neat.

If you can handle a two stage clicky instead of single level (honestly, that's harder to find now, unless it runs less than an hour), the Olight i3T Plus looks good. 250 lumens (1 minute) stepping down to 100 (480 minutes) or 15 lumens for 28 hours on 2AAA batteries. If it was still around, I might have suggested an original Fenix E01.

You weren't very specific, but the Streamlight Protac 90 is an amazing little backup light.
From the spec.sheet:
"AA alkaline/lithium output
– High: 125 lumens; 2,150 candela; 93m beam; runs 2.75 hours (alk); 5.5 hours (lith)
– Low: 40 lumens; 700 candela; 53m beam; runs 8.25 hours (alk); 15 hours (lith)"

It has zero parasitic drain, with a lithium AA you can store that for years and have it ready immediately.

Technically it has two modes, but if you weren't aware of this fact, you could use it as a single mode light, without ever realising the second mode.
