i’d just stay with the jet beam
it seems cheap enough, walmart.com seems to have them for $19

the klarus looks good
side switches make shorter lights, usually

I have had a AA Zebralight for years that looks nice and discrete. It’s also very small. I thought it could only take AA for years. Then earlier this year I checked their site for the original sc52 and it said 14500 works. Just throttles 2x as fast as the newer versions.

Another vote for the Eagletac D25A clicky!

The pocket clip is very solidly screwed to the end of the tail, making for
“Deep carry”’ and the clip is extremely stiff and sturdy.
I sometimes have to use my hand to help manually spread the clip open just a
bit to clip it onto my pants— but I know it isn’t going anywhere.
Better yet— the switch is slightly recessed, and the switch boot is flush with the
tail tube— it is almost impossible to “accidentally activate”, no matter which carry mode.
My Zebralight is beautifully made— but the side switch has accidentally activated
on too many occasions…..

Maybe the Lumintop EDC05C? I’ve had mine a couple weeks and quite like it.

A few others around here have mentioned it, but the Lumintop AA Tool 2.0 is a rather kick ass little light. I put on the magnet end cap and it is supper short.

Take a look.

Even better now that it has a 219C option as well.

Thank you P10pablo for your observations. As you say we often do not hear the outcome of searches like this. I also really like my SP10S. If I carry it in my pocket not locked out it will often come on. If I use the clip I have not had it come on so far. When the older version first came out it was suggested to glue a washer on to prevent the switch from being pressed so easily. I have not tried this as it would seem to make it harder to turn on, but others have recommended it. Enjoy your light.

Very much So. I still have not tried it with AAs in it though. I bought 4 14500s just in case.
