  • Best AA flashlights of 2018

The most interesting and most popular AA battery powered flashlights. We always recommend eneloop batteries while powering AA flashlights. If the flashlight accepts lithium-ion batteries, make sure you don't buy them off eBay from a random seller. Just don't.

You want a smile holding a flashlight in your hands? Ever seen a flashlight with a lens diameter the size of your head? The BLF GT is referred to as giggles, and mainly because of the size an sheer attitude! Love it or hate it. Check out the review for the BLF GT to read more. Although only a handful of people got their BLF GT shipped in 2017, the majority of people received the light in 2018. So this didn't make it into the 2017 list because of the very limited number of flashlight actually being received.
