    Flashlight recommendation for Daughter...

    One light would not be sufficient. 1) A Photon Freedom with a CR2032 battery (for extra long runtime and low enough output) on Key chain 2) Arc AAA DS with Lithium AAA either on key chain or on mobile pouch 3) Fenix L2D CE Q5 + L1D Tube with Clickey switch (she has an option to use either a 2 AA...
