The Olight S35 and S65 are two of the best options available for super high output lights which use the AA battery. The S35 uses 3 AA batteries and pumps out 380 lumens thanks to the CREE XM-L LED. The S65 uses 6 AA cells paired with a CREE XM-L LED allowing it to emit 700 lumens on the max brightness setting. There aren’t many AA lights which can compete with these two in terms of performance. Olight has found a way to squeeze a whole lot of power out of the normally lackluster AA platform. If you’re looking for a light which uses the ubiquitous AA battery while still having tons of output, then the S35 and S65 fit the bill perfectly.
