I am new to the forum, and I am looking for a good all around EDC / Car flashlight. I have have been looking quite a bit, and have been reading reviews & forums, and have really been interested in the Quark 123 or AA due to the moonlight feature it has (less than 1 lumen). So my question is who else sells a model with the above feature that I should possibly be looking into? I also noticed the RA Clicky appears to have this option.
Thanks for your help.

Welcome to CPF, pmek5 :)

As you are looking for a LED light, I'll move your thread into the LED Flashlights section for you.

You've already picked out some good possibilities there. Let's see what other members may suggest for you.

The LiteFlux LF2XT (1AAA) and LF3XT (1CR123) both have very low lows, available on first click if programmed for it.

Moving up a notch or five in price, the Titan or Titan T1A from Surefire are both great for low-low, and top out around 70 lumens. Either version of the Spy (005 or 007) has a great low as well. If you search for a thread titled "The neglected low level", it is a treasure trove of useful informatoin as well as a bunch of comparitave beamshots. Welcome, and enjoy the ride! Also, see carrot's thread titled "Brightness isn't everything"

Firstly, :welcome:

Secondly, I commend you for doing your homework so thoroughly. However, I doubt very much that you will find anything more versatile and cost effective than the Quark series.

Thanks for all the good advise / replies. I didn't mention, but your replies all suggested single AA or 123 cell flashlights which is what I am looking for. Still not sure about AA vs. 123 in that both have their advantages. I will take a look at the Liteflux's.
Thanks again.

One of the nifty features of the Quark AA is that it runs perfectly well on a 14500 lithium ion rechargeable battery, which gives it the output of the 123 version (200+ OTF lumens on turbo), but leaving the user with the option of using the ubiquitous alkaline AA in a pinch, although the latter drops the turbo output to 100+ lumens.
