We have flashlights all over the house. In the bathrooms, the kitchen, bedrooms, back patio and my "coffee table" which is an old wooden box painted "mostly" green. We lose power frequently in the summer months and now that we have an oxygen tank in the house we don't use candles anymore.
Last summer I was hunting for a good flashlight. Something sturdy, didn't weigh a lot, would fit nicely in my hand but also big enough that it could go under my chin or in my armpit if necessary while snipping herbs or whatever, and most importantly wouldn't burn through batteries.

Yep, it's green. Lime green! But I haven't lost it yet and it's exactly what I was searching for.
It's from a company called Brightstar. I found it on Amazon. I haven't had to replace the batteries yet. It takes 3 AA's. I use "Eneloop" rechargeable batteries and those are impressing me as well. It definitely has a long run time (80 hours according to the manufacturer).
I particularly like the fact you can stand this one up on end, which comes in handy:
And that's my story about my nifty (albeit lime green - but who cares!) flashlight!
Worth every penny.
