With all the talk about rechargable shoplights and LED flashlights, I almost forgot what most of us really need around the shop: a good ‘ole cheap-ass flashlight with a little shock resistance and an old-fashioned bulb. Thanks to the people in annoying-pink-bunny-land, I didn’t have to look very far to find one.
This low-tech light source lists for a whopping $8, and Energizer claims it’ll withstand repeated drops from five feet onto concrete. That’s good, because most of our flashlights end up seeing multiple drops from five feet onto concrete. It’s powered by three classic “D” cells, and carries a lifetime guarantee.
Is it fance? Hell, no. But it’ll give you light when the other one’s still on the charger — or broken in a drawer.
