4xAA thrower?

Hi, can anyone suggest me a 4xAA thower flashlight similar to NitecoreEA45 or Fenix LD41 ?

I would prefer a longer form factor like the above mentioned lights and not a soda can size like the Thorfire TK4A. Budget 20$ or below.

and on the first day he said "Let there be light"...

I think shipping costs to the dark side of the sun would kill this deal.

I wouldn’t buy from them. They’ve taken my money, and a few others, never shipped, and quit communicating

I would suggest Manker MK41, but I’ve seen it’s a lot over the budget. It takes AAs and 14500’s though!

Don’t rule out that 4AA by Dorcy. Man that thing can throw. Have had one by back door for @6 years to check brushline at back property line. Under $20 too.

Starry light looks good enough, just have to find a decent seller.

I meant they’re both soda cans. So is Manker, also above my budget.

I would consider it as a backup light. Too bad it’s not available in my country.

I won a light from enogear and they went way out of their way for me. they also sent out lots of free lanyards to a 100 members . that’s got to be about 500$ out of their pocket so i wouldn’t rush to discount them so fast . i think lots of people were intereted in their stainless steel AA light too so there may be more feedback coming too . i’m not meaning to discount what robert is saying .in fact i’d heed any warning . 20$ and under is a hard one ..I like the challange Smile

Aldi’s Lightway 4AA….think i bought it discounted 8$ .normally 10$ not a half bad under ten dollar 4AA light.so hard to find even google has a hard time finding it

What about the Convoy X3? I know it’s 3xAA instead of 4, but it has a nice big reflector and with an XPL HI you should get some good throw. It runs around $30, perhaps there’s a discount somewhere…

I might consider 3xAA if it’s good enough. Convoy looks good, however it’s price doesn’t.

That one looks great. Hope that they discount it again. Do coupons work on discounted items?

That’s funny. It says 4xAA on the Features tab whereas it says 3xAAA on the Details tab. Guess you’re right, can’t trust these brands.

I have the PA 40, and I’d buy another! Smile Not really a pocket light, except if your pants have a side pocket pass-thru, like some LA Police gear’s tactical pants, but I got a holster for mine. Thumbs Up
