- A must have EDC single AA light cabable of 480 lumen with 14500 battery.
IMO Jetbeam's (Jet-1 MK Professional) hits a home run with this highly EDC'able light. At just over 3 inches this has got to be the most compact AA light I've used. It seems the Jet-1 MK was designed AROUND a single AA making it look like it could be an AAA torch. Lets start with the fit and finish... This is one tight looking light. The anodizing is excellent and is not black at all but more of a gun metal looking finish, this thing really looks better in person. The s-steel pocket clip easily accommodates your jean pockets, unlike other clips this one is meant for thicker materials. With the gunmetal finish and laser etched markings, this thing looks professional as the name implies.
I really appreciate the lumen spacing on this one [1.5/30/150], and the memory (last mode used) is a welcome feature. A low of 1.5 lumens is plenty bright for navigating at night indoors with minimal light, it's pretty bright. I also found 1.5 lumens perfect for reading at night without disturbing your mate. The smooth reflector and LED size ratio give this light a nice combo of throw and flood, even at low it can project the 1.5 lumen beam from front to back of the inside of my house (30ft).
A mid of 30 lumens is nice offering probably more than the stated 9 hrs of run time with a higher mAh NiMH. I'm using a 2300mAh Energizer NiMH and after 3 weeks of messing around with the light it has not yet needed a recharge. I have to say this single AA light offers really nice run times compared to AAA versions. I really like as a mid setting anything around 30 lumen to be perfect for most everyday tasks both indoor and outdoor use. Nine plus hours for 30 lumens is pretty dang good IMOH.
High setting of 150 lumens for over 1.10 hrs. is nice and probably get higher run times with the NiMH I spoke about above. I have not yet tried a 14500 battery to achieve 480 lumens but I shall soon buy one w/ charger from goinggear.com. This will be my go to light since i can use the many rechargeable AA's I have on hand with the option to use regular alkaline; I would only use those if I really had no choice, non-rechargeable lithium are better option to alkaline. I have had one light ruined from leaking alkalines before.
All in all, this is an excellent AA light that is just over 3 inches in length. This is now the first AA light that I feel i can EDC compared to other single AA lights I have. I usually EDC single CR123A lights... The price and quality can't be beat. I highly recommend buying this light from goinggear.com
