Which DealExtreme AAA ...

Which of the Deal Extreme AAAs are the least susceptible to wavering, or fading, or flickering, as result of riding over bumps? Know what I mean? Got a People's Cree, and it seemed great out of the box, but the next thing you know it's flicker city. Thanks, all.

Are you asking about AAA batteries ?

AAA powered torches ?

I'm talking about flashlights from DealExtreme, like the People's Cree, that take triple A's.

Any reason for excluding AA torches ?

If you are going to buy a aaa torch, get one from a good seller here in the usa that sells good quality.. The romisens from Shining Beam are solid..

All the "In The Know" people over in the Candlepower Forums seem to think the AA's are better lights.

Yes, SB is excellent. RC-N3 pretty good value.

Of course, p7/18650 are much brighter for bicycle use.
