Hey just looking to see what kind of compact flashlights you guys use. I am looking for something led that works on common AA or AAA batteries. Maybe max 4 inches in length.
Most of my lights use CR123's but I think AA or AAA are attractive due to price and availability. I've been stuck paying crazy money for CR123's while on duty because I could only get them at a convenience store. I could of got handfuls of AA batteries for that money.bhale187 said:If you are not going to go the rechargable route, I would definately look into a 123A battery instead of an AA or AAA, shelf life and use life is WAY better with them.
That's another reason I lke the AA alternative. And now duracell has been advertising that all their batts will be long shelf life so maybe they are catching up on lithium on that front.Most of my lights use CR123's but I think AA or AAA are attractive due to price and availability.

I bought Surefire batteries at the local military base 12-$22 no tax. You are definitely better prepared than I am. Sometimes you just get caught were you have to go to a convenience store. That's when it hurts.bhale187 said:I bought a couple of cases of 123A direct from surefire. I keep a case in my work truck, a case in the gun safe, and have spares in the grips of my ARs, 10/22s, and one battery in the bottom of each side of my duty belt's dual mag pouch.
Damn this may be the Mack daddy of flashlights. HahaSHOOTER13 said:I own two Surefire C2 Centurions...one for the nitestand, one for the Jeep.
