The Brightest Flashlight Powered By AA Batteries

The brightest flashlight that uses AA batteries is the Nitecore Caveman EA81, which shines at 2000 lumens. It takes eight AA batteries and costs about $120. It’s waterproof to IPX-8 Standard (1.5 meters) and impact resistant to 1.5 meters. The Nitecore Caveman EA81 is available on Amazon for about $135. I recommend powering this flashlight with low-discharge rechargeable AA batteries.
