Twisty plus high cri?

Been carrying a thrunite ti3 “neutral” for a few months now and I’m pretty happy with it. Hit the top of the battery tube with some 1200 grit to clear some anodizing and greased with nyogel (for some reason silicons was making it too easy to jump modes) and it works great. Love the moon mode and the LMH order. The tint is great, too. Fairly warm with decent cri but clearly a bit yellow. Now I could grab another one and drop in my choice of LED but any suggestions for a single aaa keychain light with a similar form and UI to the thrunite ti3? Last mode and next mode memory are absolute deal breakers, I must have the same mode order each time. Either LMH or MLH is fine. LED could go 219b/c, sst-20 or LH351D with a slight but unimportant preference toward the sst20 at 4000k. For a point of reference anything cooler than a 219c at 4500k is unappealing.

I have a few c01s and those are fantastic! Now sure how they hold up to long term use, though. Plus I’d really like a HA3
Finish (even better if neutral or olive).

I’ve been carrying Sofirn C01s (which is BLF favorite). However, it only has 2 modes Low-Hi (3-100lm).
Lumintop used to make Tool AAA with Nichia 219c but they stopped. Now, the only way to get it is Drop AAA
(https://drop.com/buy/drop-aluminum-aaa-flashlight). You can check it from Drop or their Amazon store. These have many versions which including Ti, Brass etc. I have been running them with 10440 batteries (short period) without any problem (Hi mode ~250-300lumen).

Another great option is Folomov EDC C1 (super small and compact, only run on 10440, high CRI 98, but ~3000k)

Reylight copper pineapple mini has 3 modes LMH with N219C 4000k. My only complaint about it is that the head is too smooth to be able to quickly twist it but that might just be me.

If you’re interested in this, it appears it is now being sold by Banggood as a Seeknite SK02. Reylight doesn’t seem to have any in stock.

Thanks! I actually had one of these last year or so. Great little light but the head was just too loose. Bought a bunch of different o-rings trying to find a good fit to tighten it up but none worked for me. For pocket clip carry it would be alright but keychain use is a no-go.
