I'm going to purchase a quark aa soon. With 2aa extension tube for battery storage and to use with primarys if I run out of 14500's for some reason. Also a deep carry pocket clip. I love the quark UI. I almost bought the thrunite neutron a1. But I realized it had mode memory Which I hate. Besides that I think I'd prefer the thrunite.

My last quark was actually stolen a while back. So I gave the mini aa a chance. I liked the small form factor. But I missed the moonlight mode and the ui. The ring they supplied eventually wore out, causing the mini to disappear.

Great choice, i owned one and i love it. Just one thing make it more perfect : a SMO reflector
