Very nice! These rotaries almost make me want to be CR123 user rather than AA Smile

I think the SWM lights were sold with an extension to make it work with AAs, at less output.

The rotary UI is the best from this one… Pity the money… For me…

The most ugly place in the world! Surprised

yes, the AA capable Sunwayman include V10r, and V11r. They make about 90 lumens max on Eneloop, with a High CRI 219b swap.
(that is the extension from a V11r)

There is a V10r Ti+ for sale, with AA extension, here … somebody should grab it before I have to

here is the Ti AA Extension (left)

here is an AA V10r and a CR123 Eagletac

I am trying to learn to appreciate AA, but I dont.
Im trying to respect that long and thin can be more comfortable to carry, but since I insist on the Rotary UI, I find the AA is unreasonably larger than the CR123 Rotary options

my experience was all AAA, before I adopted CR123 size.

My reason was More Power! lol
in practical terms
AAA, and AA max out around 100 lumens w a 219b

my move to CR123 lets me reach 200 lumens w a 219b

for me, the appeal of AA is as a gift, so I dont have to teach lithium safety to muggles.. Im looking forward to the arrival of a Copper AA Tool

For my personal use, the Rotary UI is paramount

if Rotary was available in AAA, I would carry it

the smallest rotary AA I can think of is the V11r with extender, pictured on left
but these are only rarely found on the used market only

it makes no sense for me to carry an AA eneloop light, when I can carry a 16340 light

but as a gift to a muggle… I choose AA

IF it was available, I would gift the Nitecore D10. it is imo, the best AA light I know of atm.

There IS an AA Rotary available today, the 2020 RRT-01 offers adapters to fit a wide selection of batteries

Im happy to see the reflector that moderator007 discovered for the Original 2012 RRT-01 seems to fit the TiC..

.

now to muster the courage to mod the LED to 219b…
