I’ve finally found it! The magic number is 8. Eight long years.
Eight years of rattling around in my pocket. Eight years of day in and day out use. Three shifts, hundreds of drops, a dozen times (at least!) through the washer and dryer, countless times this tough little light was beaten and tried and tested and it held on. For crying out loud I wore through the paint! Today it’s finally moved on to the big flashlight in the sky. You won't be forgotten, but you will be replaced, and this time, it's rechargeable! Thanks for 8 years of NEVER letting me down!
