Used to have a cheap '$2 Shop' plastic thing with a stick on reflector and simulated plastic lens. The tail end would glow red if you pushed a button and held your tongue in the right position, at the same time. After the car was gone through by a thief in my own garage ( being in Aus, it was totally my fault, cause I hadn't locked the vehicle, even though it was in an unlocked garage and behind 6' high gates, and I technically invited the thief, AND they had a poor childho……..sorry, getting waaay off track here ), I never bothered to replace it with anything, and just carry an Mi6 Klarus on the keyring now. Its a sweet little light with high of 120 lumens and a low of about 20 I think, without looking it up. I guess it no problem to put one back in the car, but...…..

I got a crook lock after someone let themselves into my car (keyless fob). Lost my favourite sunglasses, torch and leatherman plus an ashtray full of coins. Kids I suspect...

New to the forum here.

My car EDCs are the Olight Seeker 2 as well as a S1R Baton 2

Welcome to the site smooth bass man. Wise choices. 👍

It occured to me that many choose to toss an "extra" light, an old beater or some flunky light in the glove box or console when in reality the light we opt to carry in the car may make a big difference in a bad scenario where we may end up :)eek: gasp) using a celphone instead.

I took my old Dorcy out of the wifes car and put in a SureFire G2x Pro after thinking about it a bit.

I reckon it was kids that helped themselves in my car also. Work garage door opener, a handful of coins, a book believe it or not, and the car door left wide open.

Haha, with my ' Homer Simpson ' fingers and dexterity, finding the torch function on a mobile phone, then using it, would probably see sunrise well and truly on its way.

Interesting that not many of you good folk carry a head torch in your car? Probably the most useful item when you are trying to change a tyre at night, for example. As I mentioned earlier, my old Petzl is back in the glove compartment. Mind you, I had to sand the contacts as one of the batteries leaked. That's the problem with a torch that just sits there for a couple of months or more...

Actually, that's a pretty good comment. A single 18650 powered thing would be very handy for the obvious scenario, the tyre. Hmmmm might tell my wife that mhpreston said its ok to buy one for that purpose...………...and if that excuse fails, I do have a nice Fenix HL60R sitting around somewhere

I always have a couple of options since we camp a lot with my boy that's a scout.

I do have a beater flashlight under the rear seat to fill in just in case. Nebo Slide King.

I've had the SureFire G2Z (incandescent) in my previous and current car for probably at least 10 years now. Temperatures can range from below 0*F in the winter and over 100*F in the summer so I've always preferred lithium primaries for this reason. Another reason is that since I don't use lights that often I know that it'll work when I need it to. It's been on the same set of batteries for probably 2 years now. I also keep a SureFire spares carrier w/ 6 fresh batteries in the glove box. I should probably get a floody headlamp as a companion though.
