I’ve also enjoyed and had good luck with Fenix LD11, LD12, and the older e12 model. Eagletc D25a are good lights and of course Malkoff.

Streamlight 1L-1AA.

My 2C Mag ML25 used to be my favorite AA light (running AA's in adapter sleeves), but now I run it on mostly on a 21700 in a adapter for longer run time, if that makes sense?
All my d and c cell lights are running rechargeable AA's In adapters, still like my mini mag PRO but. It's only like a 2 hour light

I only have a few AA lights and I'm not sure if this one is my favorite, but it is the most frequently used. It resides in a leatherette pouch in my car, with it's tail inserted into a traffic wand.

It's a Rayovac Virtually indestructible 2 AA light.

It's stoked with Duracell NiMH, with Energizer lithiums as backups.

Those are great - I have 3, a 100 lumen camo, a black 300 lumen and a 350 lumen with a yellow switch button.

I have what I thought was 150 lumen (but maybe it's 100?) version but put a Malkoff M31 in it. The Rayovac module was in a SolarForce L2M body cut in half to hold 1 cell. But I replaced it with a module from the 300 lumen version. The 300 lumen body got an M31L.

In the meantime another 300 lumen version is used in stock platform and is undoubably a pretty good flashlight that appears brighter than the numbers suggest. I really liked that one.

I never did not opt for the 350 lumen version when my local Home Depot and Lowes carried them.

Man those are nice. I’d pay big bucks for that orange bodied one. Are any of those the nichia 219b model? If so, you are very lucky. That is one of my grails
Funny, had a 219b that was a catch and release here on CPF. Liked the sst20 neutral more. Too many rings. I think people underestimate that Gene knows what he’s doing, choosing the best overall led’s for his modules. Gotta love the orange!

New member, first post.
Protac-90s and the E12. Used these for years, and then found my kids are old enuf to need flashlights when they like play in the yard after dark, so gave em the handhelds. Got them a pair of HM23 headlamps recently, and now get a little more ME time in the evenings. Took the oldest boy, 9, up to look at the lava flow, he totally got his lighting kit in order, clip o spare batts and all. Hehehe.
