I found the small lights in Walter Mart, PureGold (both chain grocery stores) and the Hardware store D.Y.I. is also a chain hardware store, the also might have sell these at ACE Hardware I haven't been to one of those in a very long time I live somewhat remote. The Hardware stores have more variety and pricing is lower, I got my light/fan unit on a 20% off sale.

These units provide bright light power for 24 hrs and some are designed so you can change the fluorescent bulb the fans can run 4.5 hrs on high or 6 hrs on low-speed.

The lights that I'm talking about are much larger and heavier.

mcalleyboy: well, will take a look, next month, as per your PM

BTW, the Daiso dynamo lights have a longer battery life for the charge- about 10 mins, and are handy, and cost just 2 $ (or, 75 peso, if you can find in Manila Daiso .. )

Thanks for the note again

Here in the Philippines flashlights are called torches. It is a very good idea to have several rechargeable ones on hand at all times, if you don't have them you will need a long lasting candle that will burn a long time. The flashlights that have the LED lights in them use very little power and are quite bright. Also you can get lanterns that are rechargeable as well and can light up a room very well.
