    So I need some suggestions on what to get to possibly replace my Beta-QRv2 as my keychain light. I used the Quantum D2 before but wanted a light with a AAA and ended up getting a brass and copper QRv2. Now I feel like it's too big and want something just as good but smaller and hopefully brass or titanium. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

    What is you budget and what are you looking for from this keychain light?

    Have you looked at MatchBox Instruments (MBI) HF or a McGizmo Sapphire 25?

    The MBI one would be perfect! Can't find it for sale anywhere though. Out of stock everywhere.

    Sorry, I didn't realize they were out of stock everywhere. I feel your pain, it seems that I always want to buy out of stock items.

    How about a Peak light, em-mgt has a good selection. The Eiger-X may fit your requirements.

    I looked at those but it seems to be the same size as the beta.

    The AAA battery adds significant length. If you go with a much smaller battery like the 10180 the possibilities open. How about a DGQ spy or similar?

    The other options I can think of are Surefire Titan or County Comm Maratac AAA. What do you think about those or the McGizmo?

    Where can I actually buy the McGizmo light? Looks pretty nice.

    I have an MBI in a box somewhere, can try to locate it if you're after one.
