Out of those lights I would go for the Quark AA Tactical. Just because you have the option of putting a nimh, 14500, or primaries in it.
I personally like my 123^2 with a 17670 in it as an EDC.
What would be the advantages of nimh, 14500, or primaries? Are any of these cheaper and would cause the light to out perform the CR123 version?
I saw a review of a few lights on this forum and the nitecore EZ AA with lithium was much brighter than with standard AA.
