    I am looking for a AA EDC light for when I don't need a ton of power.
    My requirements are as follows
    1. Tail cap clicky
    2. Ability to use 14500 batteries
    3. Single cell
    4. Pocket clip
    5. Prefer two button UI but not required.
    I have been looking at the Fenix LD12 2017 version.
    Is there any others I should consider?

    I like the Fenix LD12, the Eagletac D25A mk.II is also a very nice light.

    Another that fits your criteria is the Thrunite Archer 1A V3 XP-L V6.

    I've been carrying the Klarus XT1A for about two weeks now, and am loving it. It ticks off all of your 'wants', and gives a rediculous amount of light and well.

    Even before I read that you were looking at the LD12, that is what came to mind. Fenix lights are good quality lights that can take abuse and the LD12 is no different.

    The D25A (or D3A titanium version) is also a good light but instead of the second button ui, it requires tightening/loosening of the head.

    I have loved my LD12 almost to death a few times but I have also decided to not buy any lights at this point that do not offer a useful Moonlight mode in the level options.

    So I carry a ZL SC52 instead along with a D25A and am entirely satisfied with both.

    I have also been loving this Reylight since getting it and it also checks your boxes!
    This is the most beautiful light that I own I think!

    The Lumintop Tool 2.0 fits 1-4 very nicely.

    I had a ZL SC52 but lost it. I was bummed. Still like tail clicky lights more.

    I have the LD 09. Not a fan of UI and it does not accept 14500 batteries.
