A Petzl Duo runs on 4AA's and with a led-upgrade (3rd party) it is a good/cheap choice, just try to find a 2nd hand duo and order a custom duo from

BUT there are some other options too (non AA however) : STen, Rude nora, Elspeleo, Scurion,...

Recently a new player entered the market too : Stoots lamps ... ntale.html (

Especially the evo max is a very lightweight and powerfull light. I'm thinking of switching my stenlight to an evomax for non-expedition trips.

Why don't you just buy the AA adapter for your Stenlight? :shrug:
