anyone know of a flashlight that is similiar to the x5 tactical by inova but uses conventional batteries like AA? I am looking for a bright, LED light that won't suck up $$$ in batteries!

Inova makes a single large led that uses AA batteries called the X1. Iv'e heard good things about it from a coworker.

I know they use lithium batteries but I buy them from Surefire direct in packs of 12 for about $15.00. They cost over $4.00 a piece at the local gunshop. So this is a deal IMHO. Plus you can use these batteries in all kinds of other electronics AFTER they stop running your Surefire light! They will run toys, calculators, radios, etc. for as long time after they stop working the light. Surefire has a lot of new LED lights coming out now.

Sure fire direct offers as prior poster stated a great deal on batteries. Link

Here is a great light. They use lithium batteries (10 year shelf life & work well in extreme cold), they have a long runtime, they are very bright, and very rugged.
