|In A Pinch, House Lighting By Flashlight|
We talk a lot about power and light in our RVs, but what about a portable version? You know, the good old standby...the Flashlight. Flashlights have come a long way since the days of dry cell batteries and "pen lights." The picture to the right was taken with a 1000 Lumen rechargeable flashlight just a little bigger than a traditional 2 AA cell light! Advances in LED technology has made it possible to have more light for less power. Even the smallest coin cell powered LED lights for a keychain put out more light than the old fashioned 2 "D" cell flashlight of yesteryear. OK, I'll admit I have a fascination with flashlights. Ever since I was a kid I've really liked them. Not obsessed, mind you, just impressed.

If anything, I miss the reassuring feel of a multi "D" cell MagLite. Not only was it a flashlight, but could be a deterrent for the bad guys. I'd hate to get hit with one! We'll have to see what the longevity of these flashlights are. So far it's win-win.
