Request: 1 mode, forward rear clicky, 3.5-4 inch long, 1AA torch

Does anyone know of any? Looking for a modest amount of light but nice runtime. Prefer deep carry clip. Small and pocketable .Something along the lines of the ThruNite T10 but one mode and about 100 lumens. Pelican 2350 is close but too big and wide.

Perhaps the Hugsby P31? It’s reverse clicky instead of forward. Has a clip, but not deep carry. Just the first one to come to mind. It’s been around a while.

One of the biggest splashes lately in the AA scene seems to be the Klarus Mi7. Doesn’t exactly line up with your criteria, but a sweet light nonetheless. And don’t let the price scare you – plenty of coupons available to help with that.

Thanks but it really needs to be AA and forward switch and one mode or multiple modes only through bezel positioning. But I think I found a couple candidates:

Fenix E11
Klarus P1A

I ordered the Klarus. Looks a tad long and a tad thick but it will be a forward one mode with nice brightness. Would have preferred like 100 lumens and 4 hour run time on Lithium AA but 2 hr at 150 is more than tolerable.

Can’t find the Fenix E11 anywhere. Hopefully a used one will pop up on eBay. Looks perfect. Attach a deep carry clip on that would be great. Thin, short, forward one-mode with long run time and decent brightness. Too bad for me its successor changed the functioning. I personally don’t like using lights with half-press mode changing. I use quick bursts in normal use a lot and don’t like when it changes modes instead of giving me the light amount I want.
