I discovered one of our Eveready flashlights was ruined when the batteries leaked. When I opened it to change the batteries, I discovered the chamber was covered with battery acid so I promptly tossed everything in a plastic bag and into the trash. I thought I'd start looking for a replacement and found this article in SHTF Blog:
I hadn't heard about this company before but their products sound well made. $52 for a flashlight may sound expensive, but if it has high quality and will last long then it might be worth it. I will keep looking at a few more before I decide but this one is in the running. I found it on Amazon.
