Hey guy, I know you're a flashlight collector and I carry a few on me when I'm out and about because I'm very nearsighted and the light from a small flashlight helps me a great deal when I'm examining something. Well I finally got my van running again so I can get out of the house and I went by Home Depot to get some items. I came across the "Defiant" branded flashlights and picked up two of the different models to try them out. Wow! You should take a look at them. There is one for $4.88 at the store near me that's the Defiant Mini LED Work Light Model # 902-GD that puts out a great deal of light from 16 LEDs. I got another Defiant flashlight a model 7000. It's an interesting light which is oval with a single LED and reflector on one end then you slide out the inside which turns it into a 30 LED work light. It has dual magnets and a hook on the end and is a very bright light. I can't find it on The Web anywhere except Fixya where a fellow shows how he fixed a battery door problem. I suppose the 7000 has been discontinued but I'm going back to see if there are any left. ^_^

That's a fun looking light. They don't say what kind of batteries it takes. That is a big factor, for me. Thanks for sharing.

It has a carrier with 3 AAA batteries in the end with a threaded cap. The light is metal and surprising quality, especially surprising by the amount of light it puts out. I'm probably going to pick up a few more. ^_^

Yep, three triple A. Those cells which cost as much as AA, but don't weigh as much, and don't last as long. That would have been my guess. I try (not successfully) to avoid AAA cells.
I hope that works well for you. I have a two AA head light with elastic strap from HF. They are three bucks on sale, and take a mini mag LED module. The elastic stretches out, and then I put the LED module into the next light. http://www.harborfreight.com/headlamp-with-swivel-lens-45807.html

I have several headlamps, some that I've had for a long time and they still work. I have some that clip on to a ball cap. Since I wear a Redneck head cover all the time, I just got a newer, brighter flexible ball cap light from Home Depot. It's a "Nite)Ize Innovation, BrimLit" made by Nite Ize, Inc. and it's the best one I've found. I even have a ball cap with two LED's built in and it's a good one but I have a fat head so it doesn't fit that well. The BrimLit cost $14.98 from Home Depot an is also available from Amazon. I'd recommend it to anyone because to me, it's a great light for the money. ^_^
Oh yea, it fits any cap or hat with a brim. The Amish and the cowboys could use it too. ^_^

A while ago, I did get a ball cap light at Dollar Tree. Years ago, I'd used first aid tape to put a squeeze coin cell "photon" light under my hat brim. Only used it a couple times, but it sure was nice.

I went back to Home Depot today and purchased 5 more of the under $5 LED flashlights and 2 more of the $10 LED lights. I gave one of the small ones to my roommate to carry in his tool bag. The lights are metal with a clear plastic section containing 16 bright LED's. The flashlight is 8" long and a bit over 1+1/16" in diameter. I bought extra because if it gets lost or somehow broken, I'm not out a lot of money. JH has this goofy kid working for him who left one of JH's expensive LED flashlights on a job site in another city. Another helper was bad about leaving tools up in suspended ceilings and forgetting about them. I can issue a helper his own flashlight and perhaps he will take better care of his own property. I can tell him if her loses the one I gave him, he'll have to pay for a replacement. The latest LED flashlights put out an incredible amount of bright light and they're not that expensive. ^_^
