The A6 Polestar from iTP is a neat light. Instead of using a rear “tactical” switch like many premium lights these days, you have a switch on the side of the light that turns the light off and on and switches between the three brightnesses and strobe. Another feature that appeals to a lot of people is that it uses 6 easy to find AA batteries instead of lithiums. AA are a lower voltage, so you have to have a wider body to accommodate the higher number of batteries needed to power the LED, but it’s still a very manageable size, at around the size of a 2D MagLite.

Here’s a video I made showing the light and comparing it to a 4D MagLite:
