    Good morning,

    Looking for lights that will accept AA rechargeable batteries like the Eneloop NiMH batteries I already have for non-diving camera external flashes. I live overseas and am subject to USPS not shipping lithium so ordering those awesome torches like the XTAR D26 1600 won't exactly work for me at the moment. I'm not opposed to purchasing a light that will accept lithium ion, but also AA or even AAA since my charger will fit both. I also like the idea of using AA Eneloop for air travel. Suggestions? Thanks!

    You could order an Xtar light with no batteries - direct from China, so USPS would be irrelevant.

    Then order Li-ion batteries from China, or probably from Japan or wherever.

    I don't know much about overseas shipping, so I'm not really clear on why you're worried about USPS if you're in Okinawa.
