The 18650 is a workhorse battery and provides both the higher voltage and current for high-demand applications, powering everything from laptops to the tesla model s
18650's require a special charger and a little different handling, so i suppose some people would prefer to have a flashlight that uses the a more standard battery, or want to commonize with the same batteries as their walkie-talkies and other devices
You can use standard alkaline aa's, though i would recommend rechargeable (nicad or nimh) or lithium single-use batteries since this flashlight has a very high current demand on the turbo setting
That said, i'll be comparing the ea45s to the nitecore p12gt, which is an 18650-powered flashlight, since both use the cree xp-l hi v3 emitter and are both rated at 1000 lumens
