Where I am, power interruptions (called brownouts) are a common occurence. They happen without warning most of the time and when that happens, we frantically find some source of light, especially that we have a baby. We do have an emergency lamp, but we cannot let it stay on the desk because it takes up a big space. We only take it out when needed. The candles and lighter are just a lot. So the best solution is a flashlight.
We wanted an LED flashlight because we know that it eats up only less energy. We found the one that we wanted, and it is the Tiger Head LED Powerful Flashlight that only costs a little more than $2. It only requires 2 big batteries to operate and it is very bright because it has 3 LED bulbs and a very good reflector. Its light can flash up to 300 meters.
Additionally, I like the fact that it is not too big or too long and not too small either. It is not heavy either. It just fits my grip perfectly. And we can just let it stand on one corner of our desk and it will no longer get in the way.
This is a very good buy. Batteries not included.
