My folks and I were back in Michigan visiting family, staying in separate rooms in a motel in the boonies. One night they were calling for huge winds (75 mph) and possibly tornadoes. My parents have already been through the ordeal of losing power in a motel, but I double-checked. "So, Dad, you guys got a flashlight in case we lose power tonight?" ", I always carry one of those little squeeze lights in my kit, but I didn't bring it this time." His idea of a little squeeze flashlight is one of those horrendous Eveready throwaway keychain things. I pulled the Photon off my keyring and handed it to him. I had an X1 as backup. We didn't need huge lights, just something to keep from bumping into walls in the dark and to light up the stairs in an emergency. He was astounded. He couldn't believe something so tiny could put out so much light for so long. "! Something this small I might actually have with me when I need it." We never got the really damaging winds, and I left a couple of days before they did. Right before I left he said, "I'll give you back that little flashlight when we get back home." Time for another trip to REI. He also has a Mini Mag as his main emergency flashlight. His birthday's coming up, too. I'm debating between an SF G2 and an X03. And a box of batteries. Kevin B.
