Thanks, would really like to hear what you have to say about the D10.
The NiteCore D10, Liteflux LF5XT and JetBeam Jet-I PRO IBS have all been reviewed in their own threads recently (see my link below for the master list). I plan to update this thread with those results, once I get a break in testing new lights.

:oops: I have in fact stumbled upon those reviews. Didn't actually connect them to round-up of lights here...

They are informative. Thank you. A D10 is coming my way, the first of many more.

Glad you are still finding the thread useful ... although I know it is in desperate need of an update. Maybe over the holidays ... :whistle:

FYI, I'm working on my first ever 2AA round-up thread, with some new recent additions. Should be out within a week or so ... stay tuned!

Selfbuilt,

Will you ever include the EagleTac P10A as well as the Regal EDC (from Regalite?) to your 1AA Round-up?

It would be nice to know how the L1D stands compared the those lights.

BTW I don't want you to feel like I'm rushing you. If you don't care about those lights that's allright.

Thanks a lot for your great reviews!

Where's the LRI Photon Proton Pro?

Don't have the Proton or the P10A, but I will be adding the Regal EDC to my revised 1AA thread. Still hoping to get to it over the holidays. :santa:

Can't speak to the Proton's performance, but I think we can make an educated guess about the P10A based on how the P10A2 and P10C did in my other round-up reviews. In those cases, on max, I saw slightly higher output with the Eagletacs compared to their respective Fenix counterparts, with correspondingly lower runtime. Eagletac Lo modes are typically comparable to Fenix Med, with comparable overall output/runtime efficiency overall. Oh, and throw of the P-series eagletacs is typically a bit higher than the Fenix lights.

Thanks selfbuilt. Always relevant and to the point. Can't wait for your Regal EDC results, but enjoy your holiday season instead of reviewing flashlights... if that's your wish though!

Selfbuilt,
I am looking to purchase a small 1 AA flashlight with a forward switch but can't afford the nitecore you recommend. Could you tell me which models you suggest I consider that would be under $40? Thanks.

Not much in that price range that has a forward clicky that I am aware of. The Lumapower Connexion (first generation) was being offered on sale for about that a little while back - that would certainly do if you could find one.

Otherwise, I'd recommend you check out bessie benny's excellent budget light round-up (sticky at the top of the LED forum).

Amazing work - I keep comin back to this thread, lol. Will be interesting to see your take on the Zebra, though obviously a different sort of light.
Thanks selfbuilt !
:twothumbs+1
When I found out The Flashlightreview.com was closed, I have been searching for someone doing flashlight review for a while. Now I can rest assure with Selfbuilt's awesome reviews here. Thank you for your dedicated hard work. :wow::bow::bow::bow:

Good evaluation, I also have a RX2.1
Thanks, but I know this an old thread - sorry I haven't been able to update it. Simply too many new lights coming in to spend time or redoing the round-up comparisons. I am hoping to at least do a new 2xAA soon, as I have received a number in that class.

For people interested in newer 1xCR123A lights, check out one of my recent reviews in this area - you will at least find output/runtime data for all the recent 1xCR123A lights in my collection. :wave:
