Hi, my name is SS and I'm a flashaholic.
I ain't got nothing expensive and a few of those I didn't buy. but I do use them often.
I lose flashlights like I lose my mind.
Ya gotta get one of these for a truck light. Rayovac Indestructable 2xAA. About $20. (Get the 100 lumen model, not the 300. The 300 has issues.)
Besides a $300 Elzetta light, this is the toughest flashlight you'll ever see. Freeze it solid in a block of ice then drop off a building and then pound nails with it and it still works. I've thrown one of mine as high and far as I can onto the road, many times, and it still works.
I put Energizer AA lithium batteries in it and I leave it in the car as an emergency light. The batteries hold their charge for years, never leak, and work at -40. Awesome emergency light!
You most likely need a flashlight to find your way around in broad daylight.
Is camping lanterns considered a form of flashlights?
I would consider anything that runs on electricity a flashlight, my camp lanterns are propane. Your mileage may vary.
Only if it sas "camping flashlight" on it. Other wise I think it's a lantern. Good thing to have all fuel types on hand. And a good still around to make fuel when needed. No one likes to drink in the dark. Back when I did my share of drinking the still worked for both.
I had a really nice Coleman lantern, but the wife is extremely sensitive to the fumes, so I couldn't use it in the house when the power went out. Offed it to a buddy with a cabin way up north.
This one. The North Star, with a hard plastic carry case. I think I paid $90.
I have a couple of them, I like them for fishing, especially during smelting season.
