Interesting. I’m looking for a budget 2*AA flashlight now. Does it have 5 modes?

I’m not sure and the details on this light are pretty sparse. I just bought one so I won’t know for about 20 days. Your best bet is to message the seller on eBay or re-ask me in a few weeks.

^ I purchased some of those 2AA couple years ago from a different vendor.  Mine have one mode.  The tint is ugly purple and they have the plastic pill with 5mm led that is typical of "Police" lights. 

The good news is that the finish was actually quite nice and the lens, reflector, pill, drop out the back of the head (i.e. Not pressed in from the front).  They are held in place by a retaining ring that was pressed out of sheet tin or something.  The other good thing is that the battery tube fits SK68's.  Same with the extension piece of the battery tube.  I've been wanting to mod one for some time now.

At that price, I expect a plastic pill and one mode, like this one http://www.buyincoins.com/item/1391.html#.VKBhjf9rsXB .
I ordered one.
With the one I linked above, I put in the pill from a little zoomy, filed to fit. My being used to using a file, that was easier than the usual driver and LED swap. I also had to file the reflector to focus it. We need to measure the head to see which zoomy pill is closest to fitting.

Flashlight designers should look at lighthouses and pottery.

The 2*AA light looks like the Ultrafire C3 sold in Fasttech, except that the FT one is more expensive and comes with 5 modes but probably better.

With AA or AAA lights I always want to have lower modes with them, because the single mode which is also the high mode always drains these small capacity batteries too fast.

All these $2 lights pretty much have the same characteristics – plastic lens/pill, generic LED, lottery tint, and one-mode only.

I have used an MXDL 2xAA, it’s tiny and pretty good (in the “cheap” class of course). Fits nicely in pocket, nice tint (got lucky there), long runtime.

They aren't AA or 2xAA  ....they are AAA and 2xAAA.

they are nicely made ...a little slick.... and the clicky is a bit hard to use .

i've asked a number of times if anyone knows where to buy a 10MM forward clicky to mod these with .tailcap unscrews it isn't just pressed in  and the light uses a xre emitter not a chinese junk emitter.

 

the 2AA light listed above is pretty lame and should only be considered as a body host to make a longer sk68 light

I just received this same light, but got it from Banggood.And LED is pressed in, lense fell out immediately. Glued the lense and bezel in. Purple tint LED on mine. One spring in tail.

Ships “worldwide”…except for pretty much any part of earth that isn’t the continental US. Bizarre.

If you want a better quality light in a similar stile, I suggest http://www.dx.com/p/mt-104-cree-xp-e-q5-60lm-3-mode-white-zooming-flashl..., $ 5.56.

How about a Mini C8 $2.09

 

I got one of those from that seller last year. Fastest shipping yet at 7 days, Hong Kong to UK.
Cute little things and surprisingly bright – the brightest of my non-cree AAA lights.
Build quality is a bit iffy in places but about what you would expect for the price.
