Re: Flashlights

[ Edited ]

I use the Capstone Industries Eco-i-Lite which has LED lites (lithium battery) and is a plug in for charging.  It is light weight, smaller and I am very satisfied with the charge time and brightness...  Got one long time ago at HSN, HSN never got them back so I found them at Amazon....

Can you take a Coleman lantern instead of a flashlight? I gave up most of my flashlights for lanterns because they're hands-free in a power failure. I only have a small LED flashlight I keep around because it's easier to shine under furniture to look for a dropped item and a lantern isn't good for that.

@Alison Wonderland  I had a good laugh because I immediately thought of DIogenes looking for an honest man with his lantern!  I think we need more iike him today don't we????  Thanks for the reminder!!!!

I buy rechargeable (plug-in) flashlights.   They also act as emergency lighting during a power failure.   The "A" has a variety of them.



Can you use regular batteries in case you are still without power when it needs charging?  We were without power for about 36 hours.

I bought one of these taclights from Amazon. It's the brightest flashlight I have ever owned. All metal and has a Li-ion rechargeable battery. The actual beam of light is adjustable...you can make it wide or small. It also has a strobe option for use on an attackers eyes and blinds them it's so bright. I think I paid around $15 for it. It's about the size of a jumbo hotdog.

I'm not sure if mine is the same but it looks like it. I can stand on my back deck and it lights up my whole yard. I love it.

I have been through many flashlights trying to find one that works for more than a short time and is bright enough to actually help me see in the dark. Have been through 6 Duracell ones from Costco....one of the six works correctly. Small Maglite was a gift but the light is very low. LLBean has one that was for dog walking I bought for my DD. She loves it and has a handle so you can hold the leash in the same hand. You may want to check it out.


 

 

@lovesrecess  I just went to LLBean and looked at their flashlights for dog walking.  They have two.  They sound great!  I'm going to order one.  Thank you for mentioning it.
