If you're popping in batteries to use them right away and/or frequently, it works great both as a lamp and hooked upside down as a dome light.

However, if you want to put batteries in them and stash it in a closet or grab bag for infrequent use, the always flashing green LED drains the batteries after a year or so.

You can insert a strip of paper to block one of the terminals to prevent this drain. I use a longer strip of paper so some of it sticks out the side so I can properly label it. This does take away the convenience of immediate use, as you have to open and close it before use..

It's most similar to the Streamlight 44931 for 1/4th the cost. At ~32oz with batteries, it is likely not not for backpackers targeting the 3~8oz range.
For those buying this Target is selling 8 packs of D batteries for $5.

I bought 3 lamps (forgot name but it wasn't cheap) that used D batteries est 4 years ago.

Have used it quite frequently maybe 1-2x every few months/camping.

Still have yet to replace original D batteries.

Why not just put the battery in upside down when not using it?

EBL are junk chinese batteries. Buy AA to D parallel adapters and use quality rechargeable AAs. The capacity is nearly the same, but with higher quality batteries, no special charger to accommodate D batteries, and the flexibility of AAs and Ds. You can also get AA to C adapters and have all 3 battery types on hand.

I've had one of these for 20 years. It's durable and dependable. I've been surprised at how long the D Cells last. If I didn't have one I'd bite. This is a good price.

I'm no expert, so you may want to google this topic for detailed information since I only have generic answers, but if you want to prevent drain, you really want to interrupt the circuit.

Flipping batteries doesn't prevent current flow, and is generally a bad idea, as it opens up failure scenarios, such as:
- flipping all 3 = if incandescent, could still work/drain; if LED, could damage the circuit
- flipping 1 or 2 in a 3-cell setup; depending on the voltage required, could still power on, and eventually damage the one reversed cell, device, or both

Most modern devices seem to be set up to refuse to work with incorrect battery configurations, but I figure why tempt fate?

Admittedly, if I'm storing them for long-term storage, batteries don't belong in any device. Wink

Could you explain what flip (flipping) means here?

I took the previous question to mean reversing polarity of one or more cells.
