Hi, I'm hoping for some reccomendations on a flashlight gift for some family friends!
They want a flashlight for general household use, mostly for when the power goes out. They live in inland Oregon, so long-term power outages aren't the norm, but maybe once a year there will be a 1/2 day outage or something like that.
Thing is, since this will be the first & only "good" flashlight, I suspect it'll take on a more general role, like being used around their property, etc., but maybe not...
When I asked about size, they said something which could fit in a drawer, something along the 2D size of flashlights, with 3D being too large.
So...what would you get them? I was thinking a black 3C SL PP. I was thinking that over the 4AA variety becuase of slightly higher output, and better battery life when using standard alkalines, which I imagine is what they will use.
But...what do you think, go with that light, or another suggestion to look into????
