    I've been looking for more flashlights with 123 & AA.
    I'm liking this.

    It is a good deal because it includes the spacer/adapter for the AA battery in the price so you end up with about $15 then for the fancy paint job and serial number like 122/500. There are only 500 of these I guess. Just do not lose the spacer if you want the super 500 lumens (for a max of 5 min due to the heat) using the rechargeable CR123. Since I have 2 now, I shined one with a CR123 next to the high voltage 3.7 recharge at 500 lumens and it is a big difference over the regular max 190 lumens on the regular CR123. There is another one I like that I keep on my tactical vest that will use all 3 batteries (but a regular recharge 3.0, not a 3.7) without the need to add/remove spacer for a AA is the Streamlight Sidewinder Compact II (not the Sidewinder one as I have it and it is only CR123)
