I’m getting ready for a summer kayak trip. Flashlights are always on the packing list. This is not an overabundant collection. I did have to recycle my beloved purple flashlight recently though. I left the batteries in it too long and they exploded. Despite many attempts to clean it out with various remedies (baking soda; vinegar), the flashlight would not work. I have a headstrap with a slot for a mini flashlight that has served as my headlamp for years. So I decided it was time for a replacement and bought an actual headlamp for my upcoming trip. Justified, right?
