Someone said it before but it needs repeating,
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!

what’s a Vipon code? and where do you get it for $9?

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

Does a protected 14500 fit? if so, which one to recommend.

I did this to mine:

It uses an Olight M1T Raider clip!

However, I am using in another version of the Tool AA flashlight:

Oh nice! I like that. Do you find it to be pretty secure? Doesn’t turn or come off easily I imagine. Looks like this is it here for $4

I haven’t been using the Tool AA body just the head with the Nitefox ES10K Stainless steel tube, so I can’t provide a good idea of retention and activation so far! Within some weeks, after changing the led and driver, i will use it with that body and then I’ll be able to provide more info Wink
