How many flashlights do you really need?

I have flashlights in my bug out bag, drawers, backpacks, basement, cars...I think I have 6 working ones and 2 that need batteries changed out.

I was out shopping today and ended up buying another two (medium size and one almost as long as a night stick). So, that totals to 10.

I use them when I hike, walk the dog, check the sump pump...

Do I have too many flashlights? How many flashlights do you think you need?

You can never have too many flashlights!

Got a couple of various length Maglites and even a couple of my old GI flashlights. Like to keep one in the bedroom, kitchen, laundry room. Also a few lanterns. Only problem is remembering to rotate out the old batteries and stock up on new ones beforehand.

Make sure the flashlights are LED. That is all I use now. Nice and bright not like the old technology.

You definitely need one with a strobe setting, you want them to get a few frames of stop action as you aim your weapon of choice at them. It's also fun to use with your SO in a strip tease.

Always have at least 1 flashlight that does not require batteries or need to be recharged.

Many.

I would say the coolest ones I picked up? Lithium and plugged in 24/7 like a night lite that isn't on. When power fails? They light up and boom you are gold for 12 hours.
Yes, my generator is a manual switch over.

Lol. I often get looking at the flashlight aisle in Home Depot for a long time.
