A couple months ago I found a guy on the internet selling some Maglite bulbs, and claimed that he has hundreds of them. I visited his office and yes he did have hundreds of Maglite bulbs. I took all of them. Then I found that he has so many UKE flashlights and bulbs. All brand new. I took all of them as well. This guy claimed that he imported UKE / Maglite many years ago. Not sure if he was telling the truth. Since I do not have enough room in my home to store these I have to throw away all of the packaging / boxes.

I have been an UKE 2L user for many years and I am so happy with it.

I like the AAA penlight so much. It is very small and light weight and it seems brighter than a Maglite AA / AAA....

The Sun Light SL4 is a 4C flashlight, I got a few packs of Amazon C cell rechargeable batteries for them and they work really great. It is brighter than a Mag 4C Xenon and throws 200 yards easily. As bright as a Surefire 6P but throws much farther. I use it for hiking, even I have so many thousand-lumens LED flashlights. Runtime is about 4 hours with a pack of C cell (5000 mah) rechargeable batteries.

Unfortunately these are becoming rare and it is hard to get replacement bulbs, but I now have plenty of them.

Wow, you have quite a collection (although personally I don't collect anything, especially lights as they are just practical tools to me).

Anyway seeing your UKE 2AAA lights reminded me of Doug Ritter as he was a fan of them and used them in his own kits. He was a great infomation resource back in the day:

They will be great for bartering after the eventual solar storm (that will no doubt happen sooner than later) or EMP attack takes out all electrical devices.

Watch this and you'll realize you could be sitting on a gold mine.

Possibly the only working flashlights will be incandescent lights and HDS lights. ;)

Thanks for this information.

I do not collect tools either. But incandescent flashlights to me are different. I do not know why, maybe they are just too old or discontinued for decades. They just make me happy and remember the old days. I never collected a LED flashlight although I have many of them and I like to use them.

UKE! Wow! That really is some collection. I still carry/use the mini-pocket and 2AAA penlight, and have several others. This thread brings up memories...the 2L, 4AA, and others. I'll have to go and round them up.
