2 or 3 mode small twisty without PWM?

Looking for a current controlled AA twisty to put in my tool bag. Would love 3 evenly spaced modes with no PWM and no mode memory.

A clip would be nice too!

The Jetbeam Jet I MK would be a good choice. Current regulated on an AA battery but…………… like most AA/14500 lights, many will have a good current regulator boost circuit for the battery voltage below the Vfwd of the LED (which is around 3.0v) and use PWM for the 14500. I’d have to verify on mine but I do know that with an AA battery it is a very good efficient current regulated output. Also the modes are well spaced. It’s one of my favorite AA lights. I’ve probaby purchased a dozen or so (when on sale) and use as a gift item.

edit: whoops has mode memory. Ironically the Jet II MK does not have memory. The Eagletac D25A twisty is similar without mode memory……..but more money and both lights have similar efficient driver circuits.

Yeah, I keep a Jet-II as a bag-backup light.

Thanks, looking at all the Jetbeam options now…
