led light

Yep, Charles is telling the truth (as he always does). Nothing works as well for general lighting around the camp. I bought one a year or so ago, and wouldn't be without it. Don't know the brand, but it operates on 2 AA cells, which I like, because it seems everything else I have operates on AA batt's. I forgot how long the AA are supposed to last, but over a year old and still going strong. Charles and I are in different tax brackets obviously, because I only have one. Un less you are getting old and keep forgetting where you put it, why would you need more?

>>why would you need more

When you are an addict, your "need" knows no boundaries.

When Pam comes home from work, if there's a bulge in my pants pocket, instead of asking the proverbial Mae West "Are you glad to see me," .... she said "Did you buy another darn flashlight?"

James, I'll bet you have a Brinkmann Rebel 2AA LED ... I use my Brinkmann 2AA to "use up" AA batteries from other devices. You can take a dead (to other devices) AA battery and get months of continued use in an LED light.

Most expensive LED is a Surefire with a KL4 head. Pam has no idea how much I spent on that one!

But, as I said, the "always on" feature of the PALight is what caught my attention!

I thought all flashlights were"instant on". It's not like you have to lift the chimney turn up the wick and find the matches,
I figured you needed more than one to have always have one handy, 'cuz you never know where you'll be when the lights go out.

Whoops ... how dumb am I! Thanks Norm (or Jean)

I mean "always on" ... not "instant on."

The flashlight is always on ... shining dimly. You can't turn it off! It lasts two years in this mode!

I'm gonna go back and edit all my "instant on" to "always on."

Hmmm. Nick, what's it gonna take, in terms of hush money, to keep you quiet.

Remember ... I'm the one who got you addicted to flashlights! Don't betray me now.

Pam has no idea how much an E2E / KL4 combo costs ... and I'm willing to send you some hush money to keep it that way!

But folks, I'm talking PALights here.

Trust me ... buy one.

Now, in a sun lit room, you aren't gonna be impressed with the "always on" mode ... but once it's dark and your eyes adjust to the darkness ... you'll be surprized at how much light the "always on" mode puts out.

Hurry with the hush money, it will come in handy to help pay for my McGizmo PM6 Module

Hey, don't forget that one of the best things about LED lights is that they consume so little power that you can recycle the AA batts that your camera, GPS or whatever have rejected as low (I try to arrange it so all my battery stuf runs on AAs, so I only need one kind of battery). My stockpile of recyclable AAs is building up because I am still running my lights on the first set of recyles! No way would I put a set of new batts in my lights; I run 'em thru the other elec stuf to break 'em in for the LED lights;)

My newest favorite

Okay, here's my newest favorite LED.

It's a tiny little thing just a few inches high. Clips right on my little shelf by the bed. Perfect for reading at night. Doesn't look like it does much, but it's just right when I need a little light.

Neat looking little light, Suz! I'm sure it does the trick when you need a "little" light ;)

Looks like it uses those expensive hard to find "button" batteries, however.

And like Pete, James and others have pointed out, you can install a totally dead "to other devices" battery, such as a AA from your radio, or a 9 volt from your smoke detector ... and still have hours and hours of live left in your LED light, running on the "dead" batteries.

Like Pete ... I have a stockpile of dead batteries ... in the trailer and in my house that are accumulating faster than I can re-use the dead batteries in my various LED lights.

I carry a black magic marker to "mark" a semi-circle around the top of the formerly dead batteries so I can carry them with the fresh batteries and tell, at a glance, which is which.

But ... we're getting off topic.

All I wanted to tell everyone about is the GREAT little, dry camping, nightlight I found.

We've used it for months now.

And I love our PALight.

When you make as many in-the-dark-of-night business runs as I do, you look for ways to light your way!
