    If you don't care about the AA option then the 2L is just a smidgen longer than the 1L-1AA with double the runtime. Output is the same.

    Oops. Just realized this thread is about the stand alone flashlight and not about the weapon light that uses the Surefire Scout mounting feet.

    I've been carrying the 1L-1AA everyday for about 6 months and I really like it. Small, lightweight, and very bright. The clip is nice too, and well thought out. You can hook it from either direction. I use mine a lot too, as I work in electrical maintenance in a 5 million square foot facility. It works very well as a head lamp or a hand held light. It also includes a serviceable nylon/velcro belt loop pouch. For the price it has been an excellent value.

    Just picked up a 2L-X....$50....the high beam 500 lumen is impressive and, as others have said, the clip design is well thought out. This will be my EDC light....I'm upgrading from $5 Cree Ultrafires.....cheap, yes. But I had one for over two years that never failed. Quality has declined, but at $5/pop I'd buy half a dozen at a time. Finally decided I wanted something brighter and more quality. Surefire make some nice stuff, unfortunately not made in USA.

    Been using them as forearm lights for 2 or 3 years now and like them a lot.

    tI have used the 2Ls for several years as EDC lights. They work well for that application, but they will get a bit hot after a two or three minutes at high output. Strobe or low output will not heat up. I just picked up a 1L-1AA because the Dual Fuel idea seemed like a good idea. I like it better than the 2Ls, but the heat with longer use at high ourput is still present.

    Heat is going to show up eventually with almost any aluminum body LED lights, but the Streamlights seem to get hot faster than my Surefires, or a Surefire with a Malkoff conversion head. Still, for occasional use, the Streamlights are excellent little lights.

    I've carried the 123 version for several years every day. Never a problem but it does heat up after a few minutes. We have the 2AA versions in our vehicles and have had no problems with them either.
