OK this is not for candling eggs; this is for walking across the dark backyard in the middle of the night to see what's making noise out there, disturbing the chickens, etc. I had a good flashlight for years but it finally gave out (it was duct-taped by then if that tells you anything) -- don't like those rechargeable things-- they give out too soon.. I want something that has batteries & can throw a nice BRIGHT light across the yard... and will last & hold up. We have hurricane season upon us soon. I need a dependable light please!!! all suggestions are welcome & thanking you in advance for them.
