    I'm trying to find a mounted light for a Glock. Specifically it must run off AA batteries and NOT the CR123s. Does anyone have a suggestion for me?

    INSIGHT WL1-AA Tactical Weapon-Mounted Light (New to the market)

    Why would you want run AA batteries? AA batteries tend to loose their power over time and possible leak from continues recoils.

    1. I'm streamlining the different types of batts that I store.
    2. When the fit hits the shan, you can find AA batts anywhere.
    3. AAs work in a recharger.

    Thanks for the info on the Insight. I wonder if anyone else will come out with a AA light soon.

    Manufactures don't recommend using rechargeable batteries. Because they run tad bit lower voltage, loose ability to charge overtime.

    But, main disadvantage would be AA batteries don't have good storage life as CR123 and loose their voltage overtime.

    AA batteries are sure cheap, but cheaper batteries are not worth of hassle.

    This would be worst case scenario. If the only way you had to power a WML was with a solar panel batt charger, you would do it. I understand about the lower voltage. I use higher quality AAs in all my other lights and gizmos.
