Requirements:

 

Powered by AA battery (Will be using Eneloops)

Must have red light. Either dedicated red LED or a filter is fine.

Under $50

 

 

Right now I'm looking at the Nitecore HA20, but interested to see what all of you come up with.

Too bad you didn't ask for something that ran on 18650 batteries I'd have had all sorts of recommendations. 

 

Good luck with your search!

Unfortunately 18650 batteries will be extremely difficult, if not impossible to access where I'll be, so I'm limited to AA/AAA.

Why a red light? I read it's a myth that it preserves night vision.

 

I've been using a Police Security Blackout as my daily light at work since February and it get hours of use everyday. Runs on 4 AA cells.

$42 usd, Walmart carries them.

 

Shouldn't be too hard to diy a filter, the lens unthreads and it looks like there is enough room inside for a thin piece of plastic.

Went looking and found this:

Lots of other site out there stating red light preserve night vision but they are all flashlight or prepper forums. 

 

Seems the way to preserve night vision is to use a very low setting or try what the Mythbusters did - wear a pirate eye patch to preserve night vision in one eye.

Cadre say red light, so I best get one with red light.

I ended up with the Petzl E+Light, decently bright, and low profile so it'll work with helmets. Doesn't use AA, but 2032 button cells. I got a few extra, so I should be okay.
