I'm curious as to what flashlights some of you carry/use that are single cell CR123A's. I've just purchased a Streamlight 1L-1AA but I'd like to see what others use. Any and all responses are most assuredly welcome.

For me it's either a PK Design Lab PR-1 with clip removed fueled by an RCR123 or an Elzetta EDC 123 fueled by an RCR123. The PR-1 gets 99.9% of the call to duty though.

I like the 1L AA a lot though.

Malkoff MDC with a VME head and M61WLL. Its the only light I regularly carry these days. I use it with a 16340. Before I got the VME I used it with a Lumens Factory E series head and 40lm incan module, fueled by a CR123.

I always have it clipped directly to my belt.

• HDS rotaries in High Noon, and in 3000k - the High Noon is my office-days EDC.
• Malkoff MDC body with a VME head and 219B M31LL - which is probably my favourite single-mode light.
• Surefire Aviator in amber.
• Surefire EDC1L-T.

I’m really enjoying having both HDS and Malkoff in the collection - HDS is wonderfully full-featured when you want the functionality; single-mode Malkoff is foolproof when you’re concentrating on something else or tired. Both are completely overbuilt.

I carry one as a backup often.

Often it’s Fenix E16 or PK PR-1.

Other days they are a primary light and it’s a Surefire EDCL-1t or E1B MV.

I keep several others in bags and kits. They range from the following

Olight S1
Foursevens Quark Mini mark II
Surefire EB1-C
PK PR-1 (I really like these and have two)
Surefire E1L-a
Surefire Aviator amber
Surefire Aviator yellow green
Olight S1 mini
Fenix CL-09 (not a true flashlight but similar)
Olight H1r (usually have them set up as headlamps but they do well as angle lights)
Foursevens Quark mini-x


As you can see I like the single CR123 format. There may be others I’m forgetting.
