The Lumintop Tool AA 2.0 should be perfect and about half of your budget. If you want one made out of a premium metal, look at the titanium model.

I ordered a Fenix e20 v2 today. What is attractive is that it is really short for a 2aa light. It looks nice. Always start on low at 5lumen. It can be a really nice EDC light for me, being a lot thinner than 18650 lights. Check it out for yourself. I bought it for $32 from Fenix lighting

If you want something similar to tool, check out sofirn sf14. I love it. Three modes, always come on in low, which is a few lumens. I do not need moonlight mode. 5-10 lumens work perfect for me.

Buy two Lumintop Tool AA 2.0 lights and a pack of NiMH batteries and a charger. You'll be all set for the next 10 years.

Last one? Ever?
:crackup: That's a good one. :crackup:

Speaking of AA, that reminds me:

The only time I ever had a last one ever of anything was when I was desperate enough to daily take the spiritual action and ask God to solve my problem for me.

Well, anyway, adnj's advice looks very good. I started with three Mini Mags and two packs of NiMH and two chargers, and I gave them to friends that were not ready for Li ion.

Congratz!! Me too. 20 something years ago.

I like the Fenix E12 but it may not be what Raggae is wanting. In triple A I like the new Fenix E01. That and a generous supply of ultimate lithium batteries.
