What AA flashlight would you recommend for a survival kit?Updated a year ago
For a survival kit, we would recommend the Fenix LD22 LED flashlight because it runs on two AA batteries. It delivers 300 lumens, features multiple brightness levels, and is compact. If you want a higher output flashlight, we would recommend the Fenix LD42 which runs on four AA batteries and delivers 1000 lumens. It also features multiple brightness levels and is compact in size.
If being used in a survival kit that does not get a lot of use, please make sure that you do not leave the batteries in it at all times. AA batteries, especially alkaline batteries can leak if they are not used. It is advised to leave the batteries outside of the light in a protective case of some sort.
