Suggestion for AAA

Hello,
I am looking to get an AAA for EDC. I feel like I have read about every review and I’ve started circling around again. Perhaps what I am looking for does not exist. I’m hoping someone has come across a flashlight that meets these specs.
Tail Switch
L-M-H mode sequence (memory is ok)
Neutral White
Ni-MH and 10440
Reversible clip
Doesn’t have to be the smallest, but no so big that you might as well carry an AA.
Thanks for any suggestions.

The Jetbeam jet-u is only NiMH and is a twisty, and I hate twisties, but it’s well made, small, cheap, and very efficient and well regulated. I’ve come to like the twisty action as its so smooth. So many LiIon lights are poorly regulated. I am sure the Lumintop Tool is also good, as is the IYP 7.

AAA tool and JetU's are imho two small lights that are a must have . They have been sold at under $10 repeatedly and are easy to love . Great budget lights

LumaPower LM21 fits the bill besides the CREE XP-G2.

Olight I3T but it only have 2 modes (5 lumens and 180 lumens) and the emitter is cool white. Lumintop Tool is another option but the regulated driver is not very good on my light, it dim very fast on high mode compare to the others. You should also be aware that Tool now use unknown Osram LED instead of Cree XPG2.
If you don’t mind twisty lights, the best aaa light i’ve owned so far and (it’s still my edc up to date) is the Fenix E05. Runner-up would be the Sofirn C01S because runtime is shorter than the E05.
