500+ lumen 14500 EDC for sub $25

Hi all,
I have been looking arround for a bit but i cant find a light that fits the bill for me…
I am looking for a compact EDC light that i can take with me while i go clubbing/to the bar etc, so i needs to fit in my pocket.
The 18650 EDC’s i have (convoy s2+/fenix e35) are just a bit too bulky for me. The eagletac d25a seems to be the perfect fit for me as it is
compact and will run on both AA and 14500, producing 500+ lumens. But it is $50+ wich i find a bit too expensive for a light like this.
Do you guys have any suggestions for me?

If you don’t mind modding one yourself, it should be pretty easy to get 500+ lumens out of a 14500 EDC flashlight. After all, Dale’s Texas Poker is about 3” long, runs on a single 10440, and puts out 1000+ lumens! Shocked

That Xeno has a XP-G2, and only gives max 240 OTF lumens, according to the specs at your link.
