You bring up good pionts. As usual, I find your broad base of knowledge/experience, very informative. Thank you.
Yes, I do keep batteries in many of the flashlights around the house and they are used very infrequently. I try to keep them "at the ready" and as such, do keep them filled with batteries.
I too have never found a loose battery that has leaked, so there is a tie in. I have a few flashlights in the car and have not seen a problem there, but perhaps it is just an accident waiting to happen. If I recall correctly, most of the corroded batteries were Eveready. Perhaps some Duracell. I imagine that even with the lights turned off (pushbutton) there is some leakage. That, coupled with minimum usage, could be the recipe for disaster.

As a side note, the G2Z I ordered after reading the notes arrived today with all the accessories as well. What a light! But, at about $90, I will be paranoid about losing it. I find the cases to carry the extra bulb assemblies to be a bit bulky, but I assume they will serve their purpose very well. The light and bulb storage cases each come with a lanyard, so no reason to order a separate lanyard.

Nice choice all the way around.

Actually, 6 in each.
And, you don't have to look too close to see it.

Hey!, don't ruin it for us older fellows like Frenchy and me who use that "look closely" routine to better "see" the name tags that attractive women have pinned on their blouses. We are only compensating for the limitations age is putting on us. <img src="/images/graemlins/laugh.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/images/graemlins/smirk.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/images/graemlins/wink.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/images/graemlins/cool.gif" alt="" />

I heard all about you guys. You get close enough using the bad eyesight routine and when that works you tell them you are also learning to read Braille!

Not at all !
We simply take advantage of our Italian origins : that's why we "speak with our hands" ..... <img src="/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" />
