Re: then why most flashguns use AAs?

IIRC, you can discharge a AA alkaline faster than a Li-Ion, which is why they are used in flash units.

You are incorrect.

In order of lowest internal resistance to highest (which is fastest discharge to slowest) you have...

Li-Ion
NiMH and NiCad
Alkaline

AA lithium (the chemistry you need to get 1.5V from a Lithium that would be happier at 3.4 is a real mess).
