The Tool AA has 3 modes, H/M/L 550 lumens is only possible with a Li-Ion 14500 battery. The lumen output/runtimes per battery type is as follows: 14500 550( 0:45)/95(4:00)/8(28:30) Alkaline 110(1:45)/25(11:00)/7(36:25) NiMH 120(2:55)/25(11:40)/7(30:30) Per Lumintop's website: http://www.lumintop.com/tool-aa.html No strobe/SOS mode. I don't own a tool AA, just a tool AAA. If the modes are the same, it will start on medium, then cycle to low, then high, then back to medium. No memory. I would have preferred it with a deep pocket clip and high CRI, but all in all, for the price, a very nice light.

Im a big fan of the AAA version in High CRI. It has NoPWM. Unfortunately the AA version is not the same.

My suspicion is that it's due to supporting 14500 for high output. I wonder if the PWM manifests with both AA and 14500 or just one of them.
