    I'm glad you've switched to 18650. I started in HVAC (Residential service) 7ish years ago and tried to use AA and CR123 lights but found I was going through batteries very quickly.
    My 2x RCR123 light would go a week in the summer and less in the winter.

    My Armytek Viking has a great balance of flood/throw/durability for me. The battery (3400mAh) is lasting me 3-4 weeks.
    Because I've got a lot of lights I also have a backup Solarforce L2 in my toolbag and an O'Pen clipped to my shirt collar.

    I also advocate having a headlamp as well. Putting your light in your mouth or pinching it between your neck and shoulder are way less than ideal. I like my Petzyl Myo XP because of the flip up diffuser, it's just a little more pleasant for up close work.

    I'm an HVAC installer (residential). Streamlight Stylus Pro 2AAA for me. One mode, clicky cap, simple, tough as hell and affordable. I paid 20$ for mine. If I need light for an extended period of time I get a corded trouble light or a Dewalt 20v flashlight.
