    I lost my Maratac Rev 2 AAA last night. Going to be upgrading. My requirements are...

    -At least 100 Lumens (more would be nice)
    -Low high would be nice but not required
    -Clicky would also be nice but not required
    -Approx 2 hr runtime on high
    -Runs on AAA or AA batteries

    Looking to spend $50.00 tops. Any reccomendations?

    What he said ^^^

    Or you could check out a few others, Like the Fenix LD12 (clicky), Fenix LD15 (twisty), or the Nitecore MT series (clicky), etc.

    That's horrible Redleg. I also just loss my favorite light after only a month, so I feel your pain. Neither are clickies or run two batteries, but I toss these out there because either will totally disappear (remember when I said i lost my light) in your pocket. The Olight I2 EOS or it's little brother the I3 EOS. A little less in the lumen department then you asked for, but really nice nonetheless.

    If you have your heart set on a two battery light over 100 lumens and less than $50, you might want to check this or this out. Both are Shiningbeam house brand flashlights.

    BTW, the store the links sent you too is a supper great place to deal with and if you use "BLFuser" you can get a small discount.

    I EDC a Fenix PD20. Crazy bright, super compact, holster included, cheap, and 1 cr123 battery that seems to last forever.

    Edit: Oh crap! It seems that sakplumber beat me to it.:D

    I've got one of those as well, very impressive for the size. If a Fenix light is under your consideration, have a look at the forum store before going elsewhere. Jon stocks several fenix lights, and it supports the forum. This is of course if the model you want is in stock. Good luck.

    If the model you want is not in stock you can message Jon and he can get it in.

    So I basically went away from what I originally posted I wanted. I ordered a Streamlight PT1L. Should be here today. Guess I am buying CR123's again.......

    How about a 4 Sevens Preon 2? Under $50.00, over 100 lumens (160 max), 2 AAA and has a clicky interface... I hate the small amount of battery rattle in mine, but other than that it's a great office EDC.
