Need something for tornado shelter. Would prefer 1 AA or 1 AAA setup , but would consider 2 AA or 2 AAA configuration. Probably something that outputs 20 lumens or less for maximum amount of time ....would like to stay under $30 if possible. Ty
which I clearly mentioned in the post above yours ? Tyyou also posted this here as well yesterday too:
Looking for a reliable budget AA- or AAA led light with longest runtime on low setting...doesnt need to have super bright capabilities. Probably 30 lumens or less. 1 or 2 lumens may be a bit to weak to see in the tornado shelter. Tywww.candlepowerforums.com
When I was younger anytime a storm was knocking out power C and D cells were gone from store shelves. Back then nearly every flashlight used C or D batteries. Either that or 6 volt lanterns. Plenty of double a batteries could be had because the double a flashlight was practically non existent.Something to consider: What kind of batteries will be available during a disaster? I'm thinking Cs, 9v, CR123 (or something like that), and photo-batteries.
If that's not an issue and AA/AAA is still on the table; I would take $30 and spend it multiple cheap eBay flashlights using AA or AAA and test to see which one has the longest run time with the brightness you need; then buy a bunch of the same. Many of them cost $1 - $5. It's kind of a crap shoot but ... well that's my advice.
