This is not a question I just wanted to pass on to you my story. About 3-4 years ago I bought a Stinger LED. I was very happy with the flashlight, but about a year and a half ago I lost it. I looked everywhere and finally decided it was gone for good. My wife was kind enough to get me a new one last Christmas because she knew how much I missed it. Anyway, today I was replacing a headlamp in her car and as I finished I happened to glance to the side and under the hood, in a narrow crevice, there was my flashlight. It still had a good charge on it and worked fine after surviving under the hood of my wife's car for at least a year and a half. I love my flashlight!
