AA or CR123?
Got a new BA10 in. My first light of this sort. I have a multi-mode Mag-Lite, but I wanted something better, and a little shorter. I ordered a Fenix LD10 first, but the JetBeam beat it here. Only two modes, high and low. 160 lumens on high, with a 97 minute run time, and 12 lumens on low, with a 30 hour run time. Built very well. 4.13" long, with a 0.906" diameter. Weighs 60 grams. I thought a case came with it, but it didn't. I ordered one for it.
Compared to the Mag-lite:
AA or CR123?
JetBeam makes some great EDC lights. You can safely run a lithium ion 14500 rechargeable battery in this light & get 320+ lumens from this light.
I switched everything to AA or AAA's - easy to find in any gas station. My only CR123 is my Lecia range finder and I don't carry spares for it. Nice score warrior.
I bought a BA20 when I went to day shift (no need for a maglite just to look in closets for whiny kids and under seats for drugs during the day) and I like it so much I bought them for every member of my family for Christmas. I then bought a Jet III M. I will buy more and more. Jetbeam makes a GREAT product.
Thanks guys. Really liking this so far, although I haven't used it too much yet.
I like flashlights, and it's about time I get a new EDC light. I'm mainly only in need of a penlight, since I am used to those. I have been looking at others like the quark and maratacs, though.
Thanks for the overview on the light.

I was also checking the Maratac out. Looks like a good light.
I have a couple of Mini Quark AA, this days it is all what I use along with a very good quality Kalrus headband.
With this set up I get common batteries (AA), full interchangeability if needed, flexibility as this could double as hand held or headlamps and very good run times. So far I have used the same set of lithium batteries for three weekend trips over the last four or five months.
Also one thing that I really like about single cell flashlights is that they consume only one cell, so with only one spare for my two lights I fell fully covered.
Got my Fenix LD10 in today. Love this thing. Here it is side by side with the JetBeam BA10:
Slightly shorter than the JetBeam:
Nice lights, I have a older Fenix and Jetbeam. My Quark Mini AA is one of my most used lights. With the new LEDs today I can all the light I need 95% of the time from a AA or AAA. I have been looking at the eagletac d25a neutral. I like the neutral tints a lot more.
