Over at my local Home Depot, I spotted a display of 15 cheap flashlights for $15. Each flashlight features 6 LEDs, and batteries are included. These are similar to the generic flashlights sold at Amazon, Meritline, and Harbor Freight.
These flashlights aren’t reliable enough to count on in an emergency situation, nor are they durable enough for daily use. I don’t trust them, but I can think of a few uses for 15 cheap flashlights.
