Best single AAA and AA LED flashlights with long low run, decent medium and a high setting

What are the current best single AAA and single AA flashlights with long low run time, decent medium run time and a high setting? I rarely use the high and medium; usually low, once in a while medium and once in a long while the high.

The only single battery model I’ve had before is one of the iTP A3 EOS upgrade models like this one: http://www.amazon.com/iTP-A3-EOS-Flashlight-Upgrade/dp/B006K5C2EG

Thanks jacktheclipper, how do they compare with the iTP A3 EOS upgrade, since that’s the only single batt flashlight I’ve tried? Are they weatherproof (in terms of rain, not a dunking)?

 I believe they are equally water resistant .

I wouldn’t spare a thought about 3 lm Ti if you already own a A3. But maybe the Firefly Ti with long runtime in moon mode is something for you…
