Re: Rechargeable Flashlight Dead on Arrival

I've used mine one or twice...
I have at least three other LED flashlights spread around the interior that are far brighter.

Re: Rechargeable Flashlight Dead on Arrival

All this talk about flashlights reminded me to take my (long discontiued) 7, D cell Maglite out of my MDX. Its been mounted to the cargo cover housing of my last 6 or 7 SUVs. I'd hate to leave it behind.

Re: Rechargeable Flashlight Dead on Arrival

I'll probably never use the flashlight that comes with the GC. One of the first things I did when I got my '14 Limited was install my Light For Life tactical light with velcro strips in the rear where I can plug it in to the 12V port back there. This light doesn't use batteries of any type; instead it uses capacitors that recharge fully in 90 seconds: Light For Life™ UC3.400™ Flashlight

Sweet idea...
Too bad I don't see it for sale on their site any more.

I've got some nice bright LED lights, but this is the one I want to buy next (so far):
Amazon.com: Fenix TK41 U2 Upgraded 860 Lumens Flashlight, Black: Sports & Outdoors

860 lumens... Basically a headlight in your hand.
(and yes my wife laughs at me and says I have a flashlight obsession!)

The little toy flashlight in the quarter panel is just to look for something in the cargo area or maybe taking out the tire changing tools. It's useless beyond ten feet. The light I keep on my keychain is brighter!
www.batteryjunction.com is another good source for flashlights (look for good sales)

Todd....I'm now three months clean from buying flashlights. I go to Flashlights Anonymous, a twelve step group for people like us who are powerless over portable battery powered lighting devices. My wife is also active in Flashanon.

Would you have a link to that battery or a model number or similar?
Thanks in advance

Varta V500HT. This is the battery out of my Dodge Caliber so I believe it would be the same for the Jeep. Google it if not sure.
