The same solar charger can charge a GMS or 2 meter radio or power a GPS unit (Garmin) if a map to get home is ever needed.
    18650's Are everywhere. They can be pulled from all kinds of electronics, i.e. laptops, power tools, etc. Also, the only positive thing about vaping is that vape shops carry 18650's locally, and high amp ones at that (although low amp would be fine for this purpose since you'd use lower modes most often).

    My favorite EDC is the Zebralight SC62w I recently lost.

    I no longer have any Fenix because I hate cool white, but they are among the best quality for the price. They are fairly inexpensive.

    First you have to give up. First you have to know, not fear, know that someday you're going to die.

    My favorite flashlight is the Neebo.
    I carry one in my pocket when I'm working.
    120 lumens, and they charge in your vehicle's cig lighter.
    Very cool little flashlight.



    They sell them at Batteries Plus, or online:

    Yup...got one of those also. Great little light.
    Democrats are doing more to destroy our country than the Russians could ever hope to do.

    Yep, I hardly buy batteries anymore. I've had several of them. Very bright little lights, fit in a pocket, charge easily (red light means charging, green means it's charged).
    My only complaint is that because they are supposed to be a 120 lumen output, they do not step down in intensity like most digital flashlights.
    When the battery can no longer support 120 lumens, they just shut off. Doesn't happen often, but every now & again I get a surprise in the middle of a job and have to go plug the thing in for a while.
    Fortunately I always carry a headlamp in my toolbag.


    My other fav was the original COAST flashlights. Not so crazy about their newer lights though.
    The original with the hole in the lens was awesome. I once left one in a job for 6 days. When I came back, it was still showing a little bit of light.
    The digital circuit had been stepping down as the batteries dwindled. It wasn't much light, but if you were in a cave, you'd be damned happy for the light.
