    I agree with all of these points. In a pinch, you can use it as a night light for children during a power failure. It'll work for a long time with diminishing brightness on one AA cell.

    You could also throw a single lithium AA cell in it and use it as a backup light in your car. Not great brightness, but a heck of a lot better than nothing at all. Great runtime.
