These little flashlights have been invaluable to me already since purchase. There have been times when either due to lack of power or storms when I didn't care to have power connected (power surges that can destroy wiring and/or appliances) that these flashlights have been wonderfully useful and valuable. The little side flood light has made lighting of the gas stove more than sufficient for cooking purposes. The flashlights are small enough they are very easily portable for moving around in the house and for taking in vehicles for travel purposes. If one has portable back-up power sources, such as for recharging your cell phone, they work great for recharging these little flashlights as well. A must have for people who believe in being prepared for times when the existing grid is neither available, dependable or trustworthy. Any ratings provided will be because of my personal experience and the price I paid. Rarely do I pay full retail price and I did not with these flashlights.
