Conventional wisdom tells us rechargeable flashlights shouldn't be the first type of light to grab when facing an end-of-days scenario. What we need is a reliable light that's quickly put into use, and disposable cell lights do just that. When the faint beam of your flashlight finally peters out, it'll only take a matter of seconds to swap out the tired batteries for a new set, and — bam! — you've once again got the sun in the palm of your hand.
But what about a long-term survival situation? Between the food, water, and other gear you have to manage, you're bound to run out of batteries at some point. The only thing better than having access to light when you need it is having an unlimited way to power it.
Rechargeable flashlights, combined with alternative power sources such as solar, heat, or crank chargers can rid you of the need to stock and keep track of heavy, disposable batteries that have a penchant for leaking or discharging over time. Combining alternative chargers with a robust rechargeable flashlight can be a lifesaver, especially if you're in it for the long haul. Let's take a look at a varied selection of rechargeable flashlights that can help when we need it the most.
