    There may be some customs, like the Sigma Hyperion, which might also make the (very short) list here

    The Peak El Cap (and their Logan 17500 which can easily run a plain AA) are still in production, by the way

    There aren't any others from the big names that I know of. I had expected Mag or Princeton Tec or Underwater Kinetics to have something. But they don't.

    Okay there is the Princeton Tec Aqua Strobe. But that is a flashing light instead of a flash light

    It has been long discontinued but the Energizer Romeo was a decent option. Only the tan version was made in the US.

    McGizmo has a 1xAA driver and body. Pricey though.

    Coast HP1 is discontinued but still can be found for about $9. Coast HX5 is the next model. Both single mode forward clicky, AA or 14500. Based out of Portland.

    I can't easily find anything definitive about the location of manufacture for Coast products, but that information would be appreciated, if someone has a good link for that.

    Good call, most of their products are made in Asia. Article is from 2014 and there is a quote saying that "the company is planning to move some production to the United States, possible [sic] to Oregon, within the next year or two." So it is possible some of their products are now manufactured domestically.

    In searching for that, I found this list of US made lights and flashlights.

    Wow I did not realize there were any US made flashlights other than MagLite, let alone that there were 1AA flashlights. Glad I found this forum!

    Streamlight has the Protac but it's 2 AA.

    I don't see location of manufacture listed on the Streamlight site, but multiple retailers list it as "Made in China"

    EDIT ... their "Fact Sheet" link (PDF linked from site cited below) confirms this.

    Can't generalize with SL. 'Country of origin' info varies by product, and some have changed over time, so always check the current revision of the product 'Fact Sheet' (linked under 'Documentation' on product web page) for current info if you want to know. It's always listed prominently bottom-center of the page. Doc revision level / date are always bottom-left corner.

    Frelux Synergy 2 takes a single aa, or two aa, or 1 14500 or 2 14500.
    I choose to carry a flashlight because I am often kept in the dark.

    Was really hoping to find something new here but it looks like domestic AA is truly limited.

    sadly yes but atleast in other battery types your options increase.
    I don’t think you’ll see any new products popping up here in the western world due too Covid. It’s delayed and stalled companies all over the world, at least you still have locally made, Canadian flashlight companies have them made overseas
    I'm glad I found CPF, I was beginning to think I was strange

    Doesn't look like that issue will be fixed any time soon, either.
