Pics please if you got 'em
I tried back pocket carry for an 18650 light, but it did not work for me. For a light that is unable to be carried in the pocket, it would probably go in a pack for me, or in a jacket in winter when days are much shorter.
I do not currently carry any large lights, as I have not gotten into the habit of keeping my EDC Pack with me as much as I'd like.
My 18650 Olight is a little too big for pants pocket carry, but I do it if necessary. However, it rides nicely clipped into a cargo pocket. Otherwise, it's in my backpack.
Years ago, I really liked carrying my 2xaa Maglight incandescent and original Leatherman in a Nite Ize belt sheath. It worked great on the weekends, but was too much at other times.

Hmmm...well I keep a small light on my keychain that is actually pretty nice, but I have a bigger one on my EDC bag that is always pretty close by.
Nitefox Mini AAA (150 lumen) on keys
Ripoffs holsters attached to belt or in jacket pocket, or Skinth Mondo Shield worn on belt.
Corso Concealment put together a custom mag/light combo carrier for my Klarus.
My 1x18650 Klarus XT2C is actually just small enough for pocket carry, but I prefer to carry it in my bag with almost everything else. I'm a small-sized guy, so I'm quite limited in what I can carry in my pockets.
Not quite an answer to your question wrt too large for pocket carry, but nevertheless...
I have a tiny Nitecore EC11 (with a high capacity IMR 18350) used on my mountain bike helmet, and also on the peak of my 5.11 cap. I am the sentinel of the barbeque. It has been so effective and performed so well, I have just ordered a couple more.
I wear my Nitecore SRT7 in a belt mount HSGI MP7 mag pouch. Yes it's unsecured but short of going on the ground and really tumbling it's secure for my day to day movements.
Horizontal belt holster.
My 18650 light goes either in my coat pocket (since I mostly use it during winter) or I put it in my backpack or messenger pack, whichever I'm wearing. The big light only leaves home when I'm positive that I'll need a big light and it will not replace my EDC.
That means my EDC will be in my pants pocket when I need to illuminate something fast and the bigger light can rest in a less accessible spot until really needed.
It's always been a belt pouch for me, even when it's an AA powered cell,...my pockets are already full of other stuff. Lol
Hello fellow jeeper!
This little toolVN is tiny but puts out an impressive 600 lumens in warm color.
My larger lights I keep in a bag or my car.
Dont like clutter in my pockets.
At first I thought, No way can an AAA light put out that many lumens but it's actually running on a 3.7V cell isn't it. Lol
Will this size of light take over/become the norm in time I wonder? OK, surely the run times will never equal the 18650's size lights but how many of us really need long runs especially on an EDC type light? Overall pocket size and weight would be more important I'm guessing??
On a side note, will this torch still work on an AAA battery? What figures do you get then??
is this the nichia tool AAA? I have a nichia 219b one in copper, maybe I'll dump a 10440 in it. But I am afraid I might fry it.
It's a 10440 and not aaa. The original tool is aaa but this one was modified for 10440.
Yeah the run time on 600 lumens is very short, less than a minute.
But on other modes it will run a long time.
I'm not familiar with the 10440 battery period, I assumed that like some lights that were designed to take a 14500 battery, would also take a normal AA too.
The 10440 is an AAA size but in a 3.7 volt Lithium cell as is the Tool in question.
The Modded Tool evidently will not run on a normal AAA primary battery,not enough Voltage.
A 14500 is the same thing in an AA cell.
They make the Tool in both AA and AAA versions

When purchased the person who modified the tool told me not to use aaa, didnt specify why and supplied a 10440.
I took this toolVN camping for a week and was my main light and lasted about 5 days before needing a change of batteries.
I have about five 10440 batteries stashed in my pack and car.
