This AA Tool 2.0 has the best high def high CRI cool white emitter that I have ever seen.
The detail is just incredible in all the modes. This would be a handy detective/Cop investigative detail operation flashlight, nothing can hide.

Blown away, plus they got rid of the PWM and hid the strobe.
Add on the reversible clip, Alkaline, Ni-MH and 14500 capabilities and this thing is Pure EDC heaven for me at least.

Get the Vipon code and steal one for $9 while you can!

That is better than the AAA. The AAA’s switch is so rigid, I tend to turn off the light instead of switching modes. Also, the AAA don’t work with 10440, while the AA works with 14500 battery.

It does, even though it doesn’t say so on the specs Smile

I don’t dear to try it.
Also, I heard that after this it won’t work with AAA batteries.

At least, in 2015, the tester doesn’t mention if a 10440 kills the electronics or not Question

Edit: I have found the same test here Big Smile

Mine runs mainly on 10440, I got 350 lumens with a 219C.
Though if I want I can still pop an Eneloop in there and got some conservative levels
