For those looking for a very compact stainless steel AA light, this one from BG is quite good.
It is three mode starting on low – med – High with reverse clicky and is fairly well built. Not bad stock, it states no 14500 but i ran it for a while on li-ion and it didn’t blow.
This one joins the crazy microlight club…
