If your light was designed for CR123 batteries, use CR123 batteries. If you want a AA light buy one. There are plenty of good ones out there to choose from.

Even if there was such a contraption, your light wouldn't work or be very bright on one 1.5 volt AA when it needs two 3 volt CR123s.

rechargeable 123 cells, or 18650 cells may be an option, what is the flashlight?

There are many well performing AA lights on the market. I picked up one that is rated at 140 lumens because I was tired of going through so many CR123 batteries. I still maintain my CR123 lights for home defense, but now I use my AA light more for general use. I think I paid 30 bucks for it at one of the box stores. Try one out.

eta: This is the AA light I bought. Looks like it may not be available now.

You should check out Fenix or 4sevens for some very nice AA lights.

Rechargeable cells are the way to go. Check Batteryjunction, good deal on two cells w/charger.

This one is 1*AA/1*AAA/1*CR123A. They have others that may suit your needs. I've ordered a few times from them and they ship slow, but they do arrive.

My Fenix P2Ds can be converted to use 2xAA and 1xAA, which is nice for extended power outages I'm not sure if Fenix offers tubes for their newer models.


Also CR123s are about $1.5 a piece of you know where to look.

I picked up a NiteCore D10 for the same reason. 123s are expensive.

I can use the NiMH rechargables that I have used for years with my cameras.

Quark 2-AA tactical $69

I EDC the single cell version. Use it at least once every 3 days and it has been flawless for over a year
