I find it important to have a voltage regulator in my LED lights, it gives you a more consistent throw of light for longer. Without that power management on your light you get a very good start that quickly winds down in power as you use it... A fade out... I like to have my light run full steam until it taps the battery and then just die all at once.

All the fenix lights have that, and many other great lights out there do, but I do not recall any of the array style lights that will manage voltage like that.

I have had great luck with both my TK40 and my TK45.. I also have a liking for my 800 Lumen Magnalight which is a 12 volt spotlight, but it hooks right up like the old school stubby light for simply epic runs on those brick style batteries. The battery is heavy, but the part you are holding out in your hands is very light and does not heat up like the high output flashlights do.

As a perk, I can say that I get far far far fewer flying bugs up in my light using the LED that throws a whiter beam. The old days of spitting out bugs walking with a yellowish light like the halogens and florescents are done for me.
