I love that they knocked off the late '80s logo and packaging style. Never go halfass with trademark infringement. From what I can find these are still sold new in some form in Europe.

I'm sure the owner of Maglite has already had the paperwork filed for yet another lawsuit.

I'm in West Virginia, USA I just do a bunch of research in Russia, Israel, Japan, HK, all over Europe, and USA.

Typically I will do image searches for old obscure flashlights. If I find a hit I'll look around on a website for other stuff. In the olden days I would use Tor Browser and pay attention to the nodes now I can switch country preference in my browser. I may even search using words like akku, torch, taschenlampe, zaklamp, etc.

I could only wish I was in Switzerland. I found some old Pilas and Surefires for sale. The prices are the opposite of what they would be in USA.

I'm soon to be in Holiday with Pesach coming up.
