Looking for an EDC light that uses AA batteries for under $35. Most important things to me are usable light settings (I personally don’t have much use for sub 1lm firefly modes) as well as a super durable build. I’m not that much of a flashlight junkie (yet!) where I need specific UI or CRI, just a 3 mode, bright, bombproof light! Open to any suggestions

Lumintop tool AA. I own it and love it. Cheap, can use a alternate battery ( amazing when you do and highly suggest doing so ) , and has a decent pocket clip that can be reversed for use on a hat brim. Check it out!

I still like the ThruNite T10--incidentally, it's available pretty cheap right now. Nice, simple UI (no momentary on though), decent output, and a neutral white option.

I’ve had my eye on the thrunite t10. My main question about it is, how usable are the modes? They seem very spaced out

You want spaced out settings in my opinion... once you start to get in the higher lumens , it will start to take a higher lumen step up to see a visual difference.

How about an Olight S1A Baton:

Have the copper version myself.  Great lumens and runtime in a package that takes a variety of aa sized power units.

Man I’ve been window shopping Olight for a longgg time , the ONLY reason I don’t own one is the lack of a tail click operation. I know they have some and came out with more recently but that AA you suggest would be perfect if it was tail click operation. Even better , a magnetic tail click operation! I know it’s a pipe dream though lol
