2xAA driver?

So I found my old Dereelight Javelin 2xAA P60 host and I figure I should build it. I really only see two options out there, both on Fasttech. One is a 5-mode 800ma driver the other is a single mode 500-800ma driver. Are there any other viable options? Initially I was going to yuji an old P60 but all of my old spares look brand new. Hate to gut a brand new bulb… I’d like to build something very simple with a low mode and a high mode, no memory. In a perfect world I’d like to pull 1C from a pair of eneloops on high but given the lack of options I’m sure I won’t get that lucky…

I like that 1-mode 800mA driver. Works nicely with 2×AA. (Less current with 1×AA.)

I’ll probably try it, just want to be more versatile. Any thoughts on best moderate to high CRI LED for 800ma drive current?

I like the 4000k LH351D 90 cri for its high output and decent beam color.
The 5000k is decent also. Retains lots of output with high cri.
KD has a few boost drivers, here’s a 17mm http://kaidomain.com/S024883-17mm-0_9V-3_6V-3-Mode-Boost-Driver-Circuit-...?
