Handy flashlight, uses just about any battery – Romisen Cree RC-I3 LED Flashlight (1xAA/1xCR123A/2xAA) Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
* It uses 14500 Batteries (1x)
* It uses AA batteries (1x or 2x)
* It uses 16340 batteries (1x)
* It's bright, but not so bright it chews through the battery in no time flat
Cons:
* If you are using the 2xAA battery extension, the second battery doesn't seem like it would be that secure, but it's held in pretty well.
* A High/Low mode would make this a ridiculously versatile little flashlight.
Other:
Nice little light, I might have to replace the driver to get a low mode however.
Bottomline:
Great for throwing a 14500 battery in and sticking it in your glove box, it will be there, ready when you need it. And when the 14500 dies, replacement batteries are everywhere.
