Household flashlights for emergencies?

thepopmonster 73 88 September 30, 2016 at 10:28 AM
Looking for 5-10 AA or AAA LED flashlights that are reliable and at least water resistant. Went with dealextreme cheapies first time round and find that the battery pack contacts tend to corrode and switches stop working (New Orleans humidity, got to love it) so looking to move a little upscale without going full cree tactical 100,000,000 candlepower good to 30 feet with hidden built in strobe.

Any suggestions what to get, or where to look, or how much is too cheap to be true, or if there are brands to look for ... you know, flashlight 101?

Also would like to get a few lanterns, same sort of criteria.

Any advice welcome, thanks.
