Second only to a dog, I believe a flashlight is any boy’s (some girls too) next best friend. Flashlights are like security blankets, especially when kids (and a lot of adults) are afraid of the dark, imagining cucuys (monsters) or mumos (ghosts) grabbing their little, bitty legs. And they are pretty handy when you’re babysitting, hand a flashlight to a 5-year old and in no time you’ll have in front of you a very content kid pretending to be Iron Man (this can go on for hours giving you enough time to jimmy the liquor cabinet).
I have all kinds of flashlights at home – big bulky ones, skinny ones, heavy duty ones and the ones I use when I spelunk. They are made with different materials – plastic, rubber, metal, metal/plastic/rubber all in one. Guess what they all have in common? They all have dead or dying batteries inside. I just don’t think of replacing batteries – EVER. I’m cheap. I think batteries are overpriced (D batteries, forget it!).So the hunt for a new flashlight was on. I wanted something small enough to carry, bright enough that it can light up my pitch black bedroom and has rechargeable batteries built in. And that’s when I came across the 12V Spotlight (in Gremlin Green from 12vSpotlight.com for only $19.95 each). It meets all of my requirements and then some.
