These type of flashlight are now dinosaurs compared to what is available in the LED market that gives off more light than this will ever do. The newer flashlights cost less and run longer on the less expensive AAA battery.

9 lumens for 2 d batteries? Staples should be giving these away with a $5 purchase. These are worse than toys.

ShopRunner Eligible and they can't get me to bite.

I am not sure if retro (incandescent bulbs) make them more EMP resistant, or easier to find replacement bulbs in an emergency. I do have many two-AA to D adapters shells.

You can go out and purchase a better light bulb for only $5 each

EMP is essentially massive magnetic flux. Magnetic flux creates an electric potential, that will induce current flow in any non adequately shielded conductive material. LED emitters do have very high current tolerance, as do incandescents...however very few LED emitters are direct drive (no current regulation whatsoever), unlike most incandescant bulbs, where the bulb itself is the resistor, and the voltage is set by the number and type of cells used. LEDs typically require some (even extremely basic) circuitry, making them generally more vulnerable to EMP (barring shielding).

That said, if EMP is a real concern, one should invest in their paranoia, buy a high grade LED light, a small solar USB panel, rechargeable batteries, and a USB charger...place everything inside a plastic box, and wrap it 4-5x with heavy duty aluminum foil and keep it in their closet.

* The foil needs to be thick enough to handle certain levels of magnetic flux...it can be googled, as I don't have the formula memorized.

* * EMP from any significant source would also induce current in the batteries themselves, likely resulting in failure themselves, the flashlight emitter type not withstanding.

Why does it use D cell batteries?

Horrible. what is this 1970's?
Get yourself those cheap($1-$2-$3) LED flashlights that use and include 3AAA batteries.
Tons more light and last longer.

oh and it's a repost of a repost of a post

Who remembers going to Radio Shack and getting the flashlight free and spending a buck to get batteries for it? This will jostle that memory.
