    Default are there still AA twisties being made?

    Could someone recommend me a light?

    im looking to change up my edc light and am looking for something like the 4sevens mini AA / maratac AA, fenix LD15

    simple, twist on and off, 2/3 modes and no nonsense. want something with a bit more runtime than AAA (already have one)

    but ive been looking and seems that a lot of these lights arent being made anymore, only made as AAA or cr123

    i found the jetbeam jet-1 MK but thats the only one ive been able to find

    are there any other options out there im missing?
    yeah i bought another one... the last one just wasnt what i was looking for

    Another one that might be available, Acebeam L10

    Lumintop AA Tool ,
    with the magnetic tailcap.

    This replaces the standard Clicky switch,
    leaving you a Twisty-head flashlight.

    Nice and compact,
    VERY reliable and rugged !

    LOVE this flashlight !

    My Fenix E12 can be used by rotating the head, as long as the tail switch is depressed.

    My Maratac AA sample has issues with the driver: low and medium modes suffer irregular blinking.

    Get in touch with CountyComm and see if they'll warranty it. I have had two dozen Maratacs in various revisions with no issues.

    I am afraid they will just replace a light, but my sample is an old model with a Nichia 219B.

    The magnetic tailcap is sometimes useful, but it is almost impossible to find by itself, and it adds several dollars to the price. And you don't need it to use the Tool AA 2.0 as a twisty. You can do on/off and step through the modes with either the tail switch or twisting the head.

    I love mine, but so does my granddaughter, so I hope I find it before my apartment is ready and I move out of my son's house.
