I was not always a flashlight person. I would use the light on my smartphone or rely on the ceiling lights working in my home or wherever I was. I didn’t have a good flashlight to use for years. That really came back to haunt me a few times, like when the power went out in my apartment and I had to use the light of my laptop because there was nothing else to use.
I learned over the years that I really need a flashlight so much of the time. I have used my new one to catch those pesky spiders that always like to crawl underneath the furniture and into the dark corners of my home. I use it to work on my car and do some maintenance tasks under the hood, or even to check the tire pressure at night.
Having a good flashlight handy is wise. I often ran into unexpected car or bike trouble and really needed a good flashlight to see what I was doing but didn’t have one. Now that I have my LED Maglite flashlight, I can finally have the light I need in any situation. The flashlight is even great for walking outside at night or even for walking to my car at night.
