I will use this light in one way or another every day. I sleep with it on the post of the headboard of the bed. When I get up early in the morning, or during the night, that cap goes on my head. No, I don't wear my cap in the house, I am simply using the light to avoid turning on a light while my wife is sleeping. I need to see because my giant schnauzer, Gunner, is invisible in the night, being totally black. Of course, he doesn't move a hair knowing I'll step over him.
This little light is almost a "must" for summers at the lake. Of course there are electric lights inside but I keep the large outside light turned off. I want to see the stars and the moon reflected on the lake. It is dark, however, and I need to see where I'm stepping. Lots of critters astir as I am alongside of an extensive state park. Before I allow the dog out for "last call" at night, I look around for eyes reflecting the light. It may be a racoon but it may also be a skunk. Yep, before I had the light my old Jake dog reduced the skunk population by one skunk. P-You!
Assembling a new grill, this little light lets me see where the screw goes, OR MORE IMPORTANT, WHERE THE SCREW WENT WHEN I DROPPED IT. The light lets me see where the key goes as I open the front door or get into the shed at night.
Fishing or camping without this light would not just be a hardship, it would be dangerous. Yes, I camped for many years without having such a light, and I have the scars to prove it. How many times have I stubbed my toe on a tent stake, heaven only knows.
Quite often someone, usually a lady, will ask what the light is. I love my answer. I pause, grin and say "I have a giant schnauzer dog". Increasing my grin, I turn the light on, search around my feet and continue saying, "This little light keeps me out of the doggy doo at night". It always brings a chuckle. Yes, I'm a show off, what can I say.
The first light Todd gave to me is but a fond memory. The little battery lasts me for about a year or so. At first I bought a replacement battery, but I've never bought another. A new light with a new battery in place costs less than a replacement battery. Walmart has a wide assortment of these cap lights. They cost in the $10 range, probably a bit less.
It has been years, replaced many times, but I still remember the origninal gift and who it was from. Thanks, Todd! If you want to be fondly recalled for a special gift, consider such a light for your loved one.
HAVE YOU BEEN USING SUCH A LIGHT?
