When I started to look at what is available, my eyes grew large and I found it hard to limit my picks to just 5 types for my purse, my car and my house. I will list these 5 categories and note where I found my own personal picks. For your own personal choices and you may more or fewer than 5, I suggest the use of your favorite search engine, military surplus catalogs and outdoor/camping stores.
For my purse flash-light, I picked a 2-inch LED with
a key ring called "Perfect Companion" ($10-12)
For my car I chose a green Krill lamp, similar to a
light stick (5-inch x 1-inch, 3oz), but much more expensive.
I will also carry a couple of red and some blue
light sticks. My source:
For my car I will also give myself, at Christmas time,
the Raylite lighting system with car-lighter accessory.
These are very powerful, but not power hungary and
can light up a room. My source:
For my house I have picked a headlamp with adjustable
head straps from
Finally I have also chosen for my house a twin pack, 100
hour, non-refillable oil lamps for $7.25 from
Well those are my picks, please e-mail me your picks and reasons.
Hope to hear from you,
