CD-JB1 'caving backup light' (1x regular AA or 1x 14500 li-ion battery)
The best AA / 14500 backup light! Single AA or rechargeable 14500 li-ion battery for extra grunt on high setting. 3 power settings with durable twist switch operation. Low (1.5 lumen for 100 hours), medium (30 lumen, 9 hours) and high (150 lumen for 1 hour using AA battery, or 480 lumen for 0.5 hours using 14500 cell).

Runtimes using a single 18650 li-ion cell are given as low 85 lumen (10hr), medium 350 lumen (2hr20mins) and high 800 lumen (55mins), which doesn't seem unrealistic from meaty Cree XM-L2 LED.
