Back when I had that same Dinotte, I emailed them about me possibly using a different battery pack, and they wrote back in no uncertain terms that if I used anything but the pack they shipped it with, I would undoubtedly destroy the light and they wouldn't fix it. This despite me saying that I'd be perfectly OK with using a voltage AND current regulator (even though the light certainly already has a current regulator built in).
My choice of what to do with my AA 200L was ebay. If you can get an equivalent light for $25 now (IMO, you can. If you put a AA 200L and a $25 "1600 lumen" light on the table and said pick one, I'd grab the ebay light every time) then the 200L is worth $25, doesn't matter if you spent $150 on it. Hopefully you got your use out of it.
