Aight. Let me know if you find some too! AA’s has more juice and is even more readily available than the AAA which as of course so common! Also, AA’s have a decent size which helps in handling/heatsinking and not getting lost.

^ I hear you.  The AAA and 2AAA are no-brainers for gifts.  The AA and 2AA, however, are just candidates for consideration.  They need modes and a clip. 

Seems like all the energy goes to either AAA’s or 18650’s.  Please update us on your search if you find something good.  Other than C3’s, I can’t think of anything better at the moment. 

Lol. Have not found anything better than the Hugsby XP-12…The sk68 clones are garbage nowadays…..Too bad it is only 1 mode. I am nearly going to pull the trigger on a couple…:P

Lite Teck is a reliable vendor of Hugsby Lights. I have ordered from them several times.

I just got (bought) one of these from Dxsoul:

http://www.dxsoul.com/product/zhishunjia-1307xpe-xm-l2-t6-1-led-400lm-3-...

It’s actually not a bad light, but it doesn’t look like it has an XM-L2 emitter (probably an XP-E per the part #).

3 modes: H-L-Strobe and next mode memory

Seems to work with AA and 14500 (I only tried AA so far though).

Got my first SK68 eBay today! Cool little light! Now I’m waiting for some Eneloop Pros and Trustfire 14500 flames!

Edit: Has anybody seen a single mode #6? I like the looks but not the multi mode unless I can select one mode and have it stay there. Like high all the time?

I wonder if this is the same.

I have 2 dozen #4’s and 2 #6’s all good little zoomies

Fixing to have a 15mm driver board for the #4’s that will turn them from meh AA zoomies to little pocket rocket 14500’s Big Smile

Hi. Do you know if there is a way to mod the #6’s to single high mode? Or one for sale that’s just high?

Thanks!

Get this driver from fasttech. Ignore what it says about the input voltage being 3-4.2V. This is a boost driver that takes AA or 2AA and is single mode.
