    Hooking up electrical power to some trailers before the sun was fully up. Had to illuminate the terminals.

    The keyhole to my front door a few nights ago.
    I walked home from the pub and keyhole to my front door had been moved, it took me several attempts to find it, even with my light. :)

    Find the audio jacks on the back of my PC to plug my headset in now that I'm working from home.

    I went looking for a shovel in the pile of yard tools in our shed and couldn't find the one I needed. The light in the shed wasn't much help, so I brought out my Klarus XT1A and quickly spotted the shovel I needed. It's nice having a bright light when you need to overcome shadows from the daylight behind you.

    Well, you are lucky as it only moved. For some the keyhole keeps swining left and right at some nights which made it even harder to "hit" with the key. A light didn't help much, I've been told, as the second hand needed to hold the door in place. :bounce:

    Inside of the evaporator coil box in the attic. Drain line had gotten partially clogged and let the float switch cut power to the A/C.

    I couldn't tell if the FW3A was getting hot from the inside or the outside... ;0)

    In my neighborhood, the Drain line is either on the North side or South side. Almost all south side houses have had clogged lines in my lat 13 years here.

    Recently, I helped my wife to paint a wall (20m² ~ 270 sqft) at the local kindergarden.

    The Lumintop Tool AA 2.0 with a 14500 LiIon battery came in quite handy to highlight (pun intended) first the ceiling in order to identify and vacuum clean the spider webs and second to get a better contrast in the not well lit room (despite bright sunny day outside but the windows are odd positioned) where painting was sufficient and where we needed to add more to get a good paint coverage.

    Those 650 lumen (turbo mode) have impressed her - how I do know? Well, usually she complains what new gimmick I spend my money on and carry; as she didn't this time it was kind of a word-less compliment.

    "Women are an interesting species", Mr. Spock would mention :rolleyes_revamped:

    Had to repair two light switches. One 3 way switch at a set of stairs and a second switch in a bedroom. Used my fenix 25 to light the work. When done the actual lights lit the area. I think I’ve used that lil flashlight more than any other tool.

    It's a bit warm at the moment (by local standards) so I'm using my Zebralight SC600w III Hi on its lowest mode (0.01lm AFAICR) each night to go round the upstairs of my house and close the windows last thing at night without inviting in moths, mozzies and sundry other denizens of the air!

    2:08 am lighting storm. The thunder was so loud that the windows were shaking. After ten minutes the storm passed and the rain started falling in sheets. No lights as far as I could see. I tool my Lumintop Tool AAA out of my pocket and started the house generator -- no electricity expected until this evening.

    This morning @ 02:30 I reached over and picked up my S1RBaton2 from the night stand and illuminated my gshock to see the time as my eyes are not good enough to see it without my glasses. I do this several times each night when I wake up and am contemplating whether or not our country will survive.

    Consider yourself lucky.... for months now I go to bed; after tossing & turning for close to an hour I concede defeat. Finally stumble back to bed around dawn... pretty much kills the first half of daylight!

    I don't need no DST! ;)
