It was suggested, a blf-348 AA would be ground-breaking.

Just for a moment... Okay I may stay a little longer

I don’t understand there’s not a whole series.
They should make AA and 18650 versions too i.m.o.
The design is pure and very simple, people love it.

Am I the only one who wants a Kronos 14500 tube light? Sad

I just remembered this one:

Ticks most boxes, apart from price.

(Can’t remember why I never ordered one…)

I was interested in this, but I have found some relates claiming that the L10’s and L11’s will break very easily if dropped. I guess the solder points will break in impact because the body is not well designed, something like that. I’m having a lot of trouble finding a good 1xAA.

I agree. The BLF348’s I’ve gifted are well-loved and well-used. There’s a market open and waiting for at least a AA/14500 version of this light. Neal is already being sorely missed- he was good at making things like this happen.

The Astrolux S3 should have a AA/14500 version.

Ready. Set. Light.

This is my favorite AA/14500 light. My EDC most often. I’ve bought 3 since I can’t seem to stop loosing them. Nice size and warm tint.

I was looking for an AA tube light too…until Acebeam sent me an M10.
See my review, but I will not lie : I really like it Smile

I LOVE the side switch and UI of my Olight S1A, but its head is a bit bigger than I’d like.
I LOVE the shape of the Klarus Mi7, but hate both mode spacing and UI…
I LOVE the simplicity of my Thorfire TG06, but it’s too big for its battery…

The M10 fills the gap, IMHO

If only Convoy made an AA light !
I’m sure an AA size S2+ style light would sell well. I would assume finding a decent boost driver would be the issue.

Yes, that’s the real problem, AA require boost driver Shocked
But I’m sure that if Simon sees a good sale opportunity, he might think about it…
Maybe a poll ?
I would definitely buy a Convoy AA tube light (within 18mm in diameter and 90mm in length of course)

The best and the most balanced AA light that i have is Olight S15 , unfortunately it has been stopped.

Yet, to be realy the best one should mod the emitter with…lets say something like 219C or 219B- by default its tint is greenish

The non budget great model is Zebra H51 w Phillips Lumileds High CRI- te lumen output isnt great yet all the rest is, i have one of those in the car, the other moonlights my bedroom for a month already 24/7

Me too! On the wish list I would put neutral/warm emitter, preferably with higher CRI.
